Finding Your Home’s Ideal Humidity Level
How To Find Your Current Humidity Level
You first need to know the current humidity level in your house. To do that, you’ll need a hygrometer. This tool measures temperature and relative humidity.
Once you know what your humidity level is, how do you change it?
Maintaining Relative Humidity Levels
Most of the time, it’s possible to adjust and maintain the humidity level with a few simple tools. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers can be used along with your HVAC system to add or remove moisture from the air.
It’s important to also maintain these devices to get the maximum effectiveness from them. Humidity levels that stay out of whack in your home can create costly issues later.
