How to Increase Your Roanoke Home's Humidity

Your home's humidity plays a crucial role in your family's coziness. As the seasons change, humidity levels vary as well.  

Dry air during colder months in Roanoke can make your throat and nose feel raspy. It can also put you at a higher risk for colds and other ailments.

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