Humidity: Obtaining the Perfect Moisture Level Humidity can be a pain, but even more importantly, humidity can have a big impact on the quality of your indoor air and your home comfort levels. The United States Environmental Protection Agency suggests families maintain proper humidity levels, saying it is an easy way that you can improve your indoor air quality. As it turns out, we can help you control it. The best thing to do is to incorporate 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’s free from microbes and that won’t damage wood, the humidity levels should be kept between 45% and 50%. Humidity needs to be balanced correctly to make sure your home has the right amount. Higher Levels of Moisture – Air may feel stuffy and warmer than the actual temperature within your home and can provide the strongest 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 may also harm your wooden home furnishings, such as floors, paneling and furniture.
