Levels of humidity are ideal in my home.

The human body is most comfortable at humidity levels between 20% and 50%.

The warmer the air the more water it can hold. This phenomenon is called ‘relative humidity’. Relative humidity is a way of describing how much humidity is present in the air, compared to how much there could be. The amount of humidity air can hold is relative to its temperature. Fog as an example, happens when the relative humidity of cooler air is 100%. As the temperature increases the fog dissipates because the warmer air can hold / hide the moisture. Science lesson over…

The table shows the recommended indoor humidity levels in relation to the outdoor temperature. As a result, you should lower the relative humidity levels in your home during the cold winter months.
