Maintaining Your Home’s Humidity Levels
It is not only important to maintain your humidity levels during the summer, but also during the winter in your Holiday Shores, IL or Dorsey, IL home. Your home should always stay below 50 percent humidity during the summer and during the winter, it should stay below 30 percent. If you notice that your home is considerably drier than it should be during the winter, you should set up a humidifier. This will help improve breathing in your home as well as stop static shocks, dry skin, and chapped lips. It will also help make your home feel warmer.
Replacing Your Air Filters Regularly
Replacing your air filters each month during periods of high use of your furnace or ac is important to keep your home’s indoor air quality good. Air filters will help catch many contaminates that cause the quality of the air in your home to drop. Once they get too full, however, they will need to be changed out with new a new filter in order to keep up. It is a good idea to change your air filter regularly if you live near a high-traffic street if your pet sheds a lot of hair and dander, and if you or anyone you live with suffers from allergies. Comfortmaker manufactures many different kinds of air filters.
