How to Increase Your Salt Lake City Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a major function in your family's coziness. As the weather changes, humidity levels fluctuate as well.  

Dry air during cooler months in Salt Lake City can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a increased risk for colds and other illnesses.

For the most 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 Mountainwest Service Experts can solve your problems. We can help you discover the ideal option for your household during a free home comfort assessment.
