Winter indoor air quality
This time of year, it’s easy to get that “dried out” feeling in your home. Itchy skin, dry eyes and even some nosebleeds because of low moisture or ‘humidity" in your home. One way to help is the use of a humidifier as running your heat for many days like these may “dry out” the air. While everyone is different, ideal levels of humidity for your living space should be less than 60% in the summer and between 25 and 40% in the winter according to the EPA. A cool mist humidifier can offer some relief to get your humidity levels back to normal and are usually an inexpensive way to start.To check your levels, get a humidity gauge available from most local home improvement stores. Depending on your size home and living area, one or several units to a whole home system may work best. You will feel better, and breathe easier.
