Humidity: Obtaining the Perfect Moisture Level

HumidityHumidity can be a pain, but even more importantly, moisture levels can have a big impact on the quality of your indoor air and your home comfort levels. The United States Environmental Protection Agency urges families to maintain proper humidity levels, saying it is an important and simple way that you can improve your indoor air quality.

Luckily, you have control.

The best thing to do is to install a whole-house humidifier and dehumidifier system. Humidity levels ranging from 35% and 50% are preferred for comfort, experts say. But if you want an environment that doesn’t include microbes and that won’t damage wood, the humidity levels will need to be kept between 45% and 50%. Humidity needs to be balanced appropriately to keep you home at the right amount.
