When most people think about humidity, it’s normally the outside humidity and how muggy or dry it appears to be. But if you ask any service technician experts about home comfort, humidity plays a big role in keeping our body comfortable. As we go through the year and our indoor air changes, humidity levels fluctuate as well. For your best comfort, the humidity levels in your home must be between 35 percent and 50 percent.
Dry air during the winter months in London can also affect respiratory comfort as it can dry out the mucous membranes in your throat and nose. This likely results in uncomfortable scratchy throats and noses. It also indicates that there could be an increased risk for colds and respiratory issues.
Check out the advantages of correct humidification, and talk with your Builders Choice Air Systems technicians during your annual furnace service appointment to learn more.
