Humidity: Obtaining the Perfect Moisture Level

HumidityHumidity can be a pain, but even more importantly, it 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.

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 without microbes and that won’t damage wood, the humidity levels will need to be kept between 45% and 50%. Humidity should be maintained properly to keep you home at the right amount.
