How to Keep Your Home's Humidity in Check This Fall

As we ease into cooler weather, the air can start to feel a little dry. This can be particularly frustrating from those who suffer from fall allergies and seasonal colds! These tips will help you determine if your humidity levels are high enough this fall.

Signs of Dry Air:

  • Physical Symptoms – You may have a sore throat, dry/itchy skin, nose bleeds or sinus irritation.
  • Static Electricity – Static electricity can be a painful annoyance. Static shocks occur more often when the air in your home is too dry./
  • Musical Instruments Out of Tune – Do your kids have a hard time tuning up their instruments in cooler weather? Or maybe you play an instrument yourself. Humidity plays a role in how difficult it is to keep your instrument in tune.
  • You Feel Cold – Humidity plays a role in how warm we are. Even though the temperature on your thermostat may be high, you can still feel cold if the humidity is too low.
  • Home Improvement Issues – Dry air can cause your wallpaper to peel and your wood floors to shrink and crack.

If you are having trouble with your home’s humidity, it might be time to consider installing a humidifier directly into your HVAC system. A humidifier will help you feel warmer on cool nights.
