Humidity: Obtaining the Perfect Moisture Level Humidity can be a nuisance, but even more importantly, it 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 keep proper humidity levels, saying it is an easy way to improve air quality in the home. As it turns out, you can 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 would ideally be kept between 45% and 50%. Humidity should be maintained 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 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.
