What Should Right Indoor Humidity Be?

Colder temps are known for creating dry air within your residence. Because humidity levels in Dallas are typically reduced in the fall and winter, drier air can cause in burning skin, irritated eyes and a raspy throat. 

When you’re operating your furnace, it’s critical to keep indoor humidity under control for ideal comfort. Let’s go over what the right indoor humidity should be in Dallas 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 options. 

These recommendations can involve a whole-home humidifier. This device hooks up with your furnace to give stable humidity across your whole residence. It’s superior to a portable humidifier, which is restricted to humidifying an individual area at a time. And these humidifiers can create a mess, slopping water as you transfer them from room to room. 

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

When the humidity in your residence is wrong, it can create a couple of problems. Here are several flags that your house’s humidity is off. 

  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 parched. And not feeling well means you often won’t sleep very well. The dry air can also cause your throat to feel inflamed and make it harder for you to count sheep. It could also make snoring worse. 
  1. You’re frequently getting zapped. Dry air leads to increased static electricity. You can keep the zaps controlled by keeping your house’s humidity in check. 
  1. Your wood cabinets, flooring or furniture is fracturing or appears damaged. Air that’s too arid can mar wooden things, as it removes moisture. Using a whole-home humidifier can keep your possessions and home looking great. 
  1. Your skin appears dry and scratchy. If you’re needing a lot of cream but your skin still seems scratchy when you’re inside, humidity levels may be at fault. Insubstantial humidity can also make your lips peel and contribute to coughing.
