Humidity: Obtaining the Perfect Moisture Level Humidity can be a drag, but even more importantly, moisture levels can have a big impact on the quality of the air in your home and your home comfort levels. The United States Environmental Protection Agency encourages families to keep proper humidity levels, saying it is one of the most important ways that you can improve your indoor air quality. Fortunately, we can help you control it. The best thing to do is to intergrate 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 desire an environment without microbes and that won’t damage wood, the humidity levels should be kept between 45% and 50%. Humidity should be balanced correctly to keep you home at the right amount. Higher Levels of Moisture – Air may feel stuffy and warmer than the actual temperature in your home and can provide the perfect 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.
