What are the Symptoms of Low Humidity in Your St. Louis Area Home?

5.0 Rating

small_4272873364When it comes to home comfort levels during winter, we typically give most of our attention to temperature levels. But the truth is that the humidity levels in our homes can also play a huge role, and if they get too low they can lead to some undesirable consequences. So how do you know if low humidity is causing problems in your home? Today we’re going to talk about the symptoms of low humidity in your home and what you can do to counteract them!


What is low humidity?


Whereas temperature levels describe how hot or cold the air in our homes is, humidity levels describe the amount of moisture in the air. During winter when the air is cold, there is not a lot of moisture in our homes’ air and humidity levels can be very low.


What are the symptoms of low humidity in your home?







What should you do if you’re experiencing the symptoms of low humidity in your home?


If you are experiencing one or more of the symptoms of low humidity that we listed above, the best solution is to install a whole house humidifier in your home. A whole house humidifier is installed in your ductwork near your furnace, and it adds moisture to all of the air that your heating system produces. Because your furnace delivers warm air to every room in your home, installing a whole house humidifier will raise the humidity levels of your entire house using a single unit.


If you have any questions about these low humidity symptoms, or if you’d like a heating system serviced or installed in your home, contact Jerry Kelly, your St. Louis furnace installation and repair contractor. We service the St. Louis area, including towns like St. Paul, St. Peters and Town and Country, MO.
