How to Increase Your Kansas City Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a crucial function in your family's comfort. As the weather changes, humidity levels vary as well.  

Dry air during winter months in Kansas City 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 home’s humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.

Does your home’s air feel too dry when it’s cold or too wet in the summer? A whole-home humidifier from Neal Harris Service Experts can solve your problems. We can help you choose the right option for your home during a free home comfort assessment.

Humidity that’s at the right level can decrease the chance of static electricity and shocks.
