How to Increase Your San Antonio Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical role in your family's coziness. As the temperatures change, humidity levels vary as well.  

Dry air during cooler weather in San Antonio can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a greater risk for colds and other ailments.

For ideal comfort, your residence’s humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.

Does your home’s air feel too dry when it’s cold or too moist when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from San Antonio Air Service Experts can solve your problems. We can help you find the right option for your home during a free home comfort assessment.
