Very dry house needs some moisture
Asked Nov 30, 2007, 12:19 PM
Hi, everybody and Merry Christmas. I'm not sure that this is the right forum, but I'll ask, anyway!
We live in northeast PA and just bought this house in July so this is our first heating season. We have set the thermostat at a constant 68 degrees and are quite comfortable. However, I am noticing that the house is becoming very dry.
We cannot afford to buy a humidifier and, right now, I have put bowls of water on top of the radiators but I was wondering if there is a more effective method for putting some moisture back in the air. By the way, we have gas heat.
Also, what is considered to be a comfortable humidity rate for the inside of a single story 6 room house? Thanks for the help!
