How to Increase Your Calgary Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

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

Dry air during cooler weather in Calgary can make your throat and nose feel coarse. It can also put you at a higher risk for colds and other ailments.

For the most comfort, your home’s humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.

Does your home’s air feel too dry as temperatures drop or too wet when temperatures rise? A whole-home humidifier from A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help. We can help you find the best option for your household during a free home comfort assessment.
