How to Increase Your Buffalo Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during cooler seasons in Buffalo can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a greater risk for colds and other sicknesses.

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

Does your home’s air feel too dry in the winter or too damp when it’s hot? A whole-home humidifier from Sunbeam Service Experts can make it better. We can help you discover the ideal option for your home during a free home comfort assessment.

5 Benefits of Balanced Home Humidity

1. Makes Your Home More Comfortable and Saves Energy

Using a whole-home humidifier to increase moisture levels can help your home feel cozier at a decreased temperature. This can save you more on heating expenses.

2. Contributes to a Healthy Environment

Ideal humidity levels help alleviate dry skin sooner. It also moisturizes your sinuses and nasal passages, helping relieve respiratory issues.

3. Preserves Your Flooring

Too little can damage wood furniture, hardwood flooring and paint in your home.

4. Decreases Static Electricity

Humidity that’s at the correct level can lower the opportunity for static electricity and shocks.


5. Helps Plants Thrive

Potted plants do better when humidity levels are even and may even last longer.
