Humidity: Obtaining the Perfect Moisture Level Humidity can be a nuisance, 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 an easy way that you can improve your indoor air quality. Luckily, you can control it. The best thing to do is to install a whole-house humidifier and dehumidifier system. Humidity levels ranging from 35% and 50% are ideal 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 make sure your home has the right amount. Higher Levels of Moisture – Air may feel stuffy and warmer than the actual temperature within your home and can provide the perfect basis for the growth of bacteria and other pollutants. Lower Levels of Moisture – Your body may react by suffering from dry skin, sore throats and respiratory issues. Dry air is also bad for your wooden home furnishings, such as floors, paneling and furniture.
