What Should Correct Indoor Humidity Be?

Cooler temperatures are notorious for creating dry air within your home. Since humidity levels in Fort Worth are typically reduced in the fall and winter, drier air may cause in burning skin, irritated eyes and a raspy throat. 

When you’re running your furnace, it’s essential to keep your home’s humidity under control for ideal comfort. Let’s go over what the correct indoor humidity should be in Fort Worth and how you can achieve it. 

The Mayo Clinic suggests having your house’s humidity. During this appointment, our Experts will measure humidity levels, look at your current heating and cooling equipment and give suggestions. 

These recommendations can involve a whole-home humidifier. This device hooks up with your furnace to provide stable humidity in every room of your home. It’s superior to a portable humidifier, which is limited to humidifying an individual area at a time. And these humidifiers can result in a mess, dripping water as you transfer them from room to room. 

4 Flags That Your House’s Indoor Humidity Isn’t Right 

When the humidity in your home is wrong, it can lead to a few problems. Here are a few flags that your house’s humidity is too dry. 

  1. You aren’t sleeping deeply. The National Sleep Foundation says excessively dry air can make you more susceptible to getting sick, as your nasal passages get dry. And not feeling well means you often won’t sleep very well. The dry air can also cause your throat to feel itchy and make it harder for you to count sheep. It could also aggravate snoring. 
  1. You’re constantly getting zapped. Dry air leads to increased static electricity. You can keep the zaps controlled by keeping your house’s humidity level. 
  1. Your wood cabinets, flooring or furniture is fracturing or appears damaged. Air that’s too arid can blemish wooden things, as it removes moisture. Using a whole-home humidifier can keep your possessions and home looking fantastic. 
  1. Your skin feels dry and itchy. If you’re needing a lot of moisturizer but your skin still seems scratchy when you’re inside, humidity levels may be at fault. Low humidity can also make your lips peel and contribute to coughing.
