The dry winter air in Baltimore, Maryland, can cause a host of uncomfortable symptoms such as dry sinuses, chapped lips, and itchy skin. If you’re suffering from this lack of humidity in the air, there are several things you can do to make your home more comfortable. With the right DIY tricks or professional installation, you may soon see an end to uncomfortable dryness in your home.

Install a Humidifier

A humidifier is the fastest and most efficient way to increase humidity in your Baltimore home. A central humidifier built into your home’s HVAC system will handle humidity levels for your entire house. Unless you’re targeting only a single area, this is the best option. Smaller stand-alone humidifiers can help benefit a child’s room, for instance, but they won’t improve conditions for the rest of the family.

Add Some Green to the Home

House plants naturally add humidity to the home and can help improve overall air quality. Some of the best indoor plants for healthy air in your home are bamboo palm, Chinese evergreen, English ivy, peace lily, and spider plants. Aim to have at least one 6-inch plant for every 100 square feet of space.

Just Add Water

Standing water in the home will increase humidity levels. After taking a bath, leave the water in the tub until it’s completely cooled to let a little more moisture in the air. If you shower, plug the drain while you do so and let the water stand for a bit. Just remember to drain the water once it’s cool and to skip this option if you have small children in the house.

You can leave smaller amounts of water around the house by placing small bowls in strategic places. Dress them up with floating candles to make decorative centerpieces. Just remember to change the water daily to keep things clean.
