Humidity: Obtaining the Perfect Moisture Level Humidity can be a drag, but even more importantly, humidity 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 sustain proper humidity levels, saying it is an important and simple way your home can achieve improved indoor air quality. Luckily, 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 the best for comfort, experts say. But if you desire an environment that’s free from microbes and that won’t damage wood, the humidity levels would ideally be kept between 45% and 50%. Humidity should be balanced appropriately to make sure your home has the right amount. Higher Levels of Moisture – Air may feel stuffy and warmer than the actual temperature in your home and can provide the strongest basis for the growth of bacteria and other pollutants. Lower Levels of Moisture – Your body may react by experiencing dry skin, sore throats and respiratory issues. Dry air can also harm your wooden home furnishings, such as floors, paneling and furniture. Our experts have a complete offering of quality equipment, and combined with our expert advice and knowledge, will help you maintain proper humidity levels, relax comfortably in your home and breathe easier.
