How to Increase Your Grand Island Home's Humidity

Your home's humidity plays a crucial function in your family's comfiness. As the seasons change, humidity levels shift as well.  

Dry air during winter seasons in Grand Island can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a increased risk for colds and other illnesses.

For ideal comfort, your residence’s humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.
