Humidity can be a drag, but even more importantly, moisture levels can have a big impact on the quality of the air within your house and your home comfort levels. The United States Environmental Protection Agency urges families to keep proper humidity levels, saying it is an important and simple way your home can achieve improved indoor air quality.
Luckily, you have control.
The best thing to do is to incorporate a whole-house humidifier and dehumidifier system. Humidity levels in the range of 35% and 50% are preferred for comfort, experts say. But if you want an environment without microbes and that won’t damage wood, the humidity levels would ideally be kept between 45% and 50%. Humidity should be balanced appropriately to ensure your home stays at the right amount.
- Higher Levels of Moisture – Air may feel stuffy and warmer than the actual temperature in your house and can provide the ideal foundation for the growth of bacteria and other pollutants.
- Lower Levels of Moisture – Your body may react by developing dry skin, sore throats and respiratory issues. Dry air can also harm your wooden home furnishings, such as floors, paneling and furniture.
