Humidity: Obtaining the Perfect Moisture Level Humidity can be a pain, but even more importantly, moisture levels can have a big impact on the quality of your indoor air 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 to improve air quality in the home. Fortunately, you can 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 want 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 within your home and can provide the ideal 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.
