Humidity: Obtaining the Perfect Moisture Level Humidity can be a pain, but even more importantly, humidity 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 one of the most important ways that you can improve your indoor air quality. Fortunately, you can control it. The best thing to do is to install a whole-house humidifier and dehumidifier system. Humidity levels between 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 would ideally be kept between 45% and 50%. Humidity needs to be balanced properly to keep you home at the right amount. Higher Levels of Moisture – Air may feel stuffy and warmer than the actual temperature in your home and can provide the perfect 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 is also bad for your wooden home furnishings, such as floors, paneling and furniture.
