How to Increase Your Charleston Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a major part in your family's coziness. As the weather changes, humidity levels vary as well.  

Dry air during colder seasons in Charleston can make your throat and nose feel coarse. It can also put you at a greater risk for colds and other sicknesses.

For the most comfort, your rooms’ humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.
