Figuring Out the Ideal Indoor Humidity For Your Home

Cooler weather is known for creating dry air in your house. Because humidity levels in Winnipeg are generally lower in the fall and winter, drier air may result in dry skin, inflamed eyes and a coarse throat.

When you’re operating your furnace, it’s essential to keep indoor humidity in the right range for ideal comfort. Let’s discuss what the normal indoor humidity should be in Winnipeg and how you can reach it.

The Mayo Clinic advises keeping your house’s humidity between 30% to 50%. We know that’s a big range, so you can ask for a free home comfort assessment. During this appointment, our Experts will measure humidity levels, visually examine your current heating and cooling equipment and offer options.

These suggestions can include a whole-home humidifier. This device hooks up with your furnace to deliver even humidity all around your home. It’s a step above a portable humidifier, which can only humidify a single room at a time. And these humidifiers can make a mess, slopping water as you shift them from room to room.

4 Signs That Your Residence’s Indoor Humidity Isn’t Balance

When the humidity in your residence is off, it can cause several issues. Here are a few symptoms that your home’s humidity is off.

  1. You aren’t sleeping very well. The National Sleep Foundation says overly dry air can make you more susceptible to getting sick, since your nasal passages get dried out. And being ill means you usually won’t sleep nicely. The dry air can also cause your throat to feel scratchy and make it more complicated for you to doze. It can also aggravate snoring.
  2. You’re continuously experiencing static electricity. Dry air leads to increased static electricity. You can keep the shocks managed by keeping your residence’s humidity level.
  3. Your wood cabinets, flooring or furniture is splitting or seems damaged. Air that’s too parched can blemish wooden belongings, because it removes moisture. Using a whole-home humidifier can keep your possessions and residence looking good.
  4. Your skin feels dry and irritated. If you’re requiring a lot of lotion but your skin still feels dry when you’re indoors, humidity levels may be the problem. Low humidity can also make your lips crack and lead to increased coughing.
