While the majority of homeowners are aware of the importance of monitoring their homes’ indoor air quality, fewer are aware of the importance of humidity level. The humidity level inside your home is important as an excessively low humidity level can have adverse health effects on you and your family. For example, if you notice that your skin is excessively dry and beginning to crack, this could be a sign of low humidity. Nose bleeds, dry throat, and worsening allergies are also signs of low humidity. In addition to rectifying these symptoms, adjusting your home’s humidity accordingly can also help protect your home’s furniture.
Understanding the signs of low humidity can help you determine whether you need to take steps to adjust your home’s indoor environment. If you want to learn more about how you can tell whether your home is humid enough, call Berkeys Air Conditioning & Plumbing at (972) 464-2057.
