How Much Humidity Should Your Home Have?

Home Humidity Orem UTWhen you are experiencing humidity outside, you may wonder what is the ideal humidity level for your home. Maintaining the ideal level is important to ensuring that your home isn’t growing mold or mildew in darker areas of your home. Indoor humidity levels should be between 30-50 percent. The ideal level should be right around 45 percent. Here is what you need to know about how to maintain an ideal level of humidity in your home.

How to Measure Humidity

If you think there may be too much or too little humidity in your home, you can call a professional to test your home’s level using a hygrometer. If you are suffering from cracked skin, dry throats, or dry skin, you may not have enough. If you notice that your walls and ceilings are stained or wallpaper is starting to peel, you may have too much humidity.

Low Humidity: What Should I Do?

If you have low humidity in your home, you need to take a few steps to increasing the amount of moisture in the air. Using a humidifier can help increase the humidity in your home. Humidifiers must be kept clean and filters should be changed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. The majority of humidifiers are evaporative humidifiers that work by water soaking a wicking filter that absorbs the water. A fan then blows through the air and evaporates the water.

High Humidity: What Should You Do?

If the humidity is too high, you can decrease it in a few ways. There are exhaust fans you can install to decrease the humidity. This can be expensive but is very effective. You can also purchase a dehumidifier, which is very similar to an air conditioner. Make sure to empty the water from your dehumidifier regularly.

Tyler and Carter were efficient, helpful, and courteous. They walked us through our new system and explained everything so we could use and maintain the system after they left. Great experience!

Brady and LT (and the entire Western Heating & Air Team) have been amazing through a less than ideal scenario. Our outdoor unit with our ductless system was having issues and completely went down on two occasions. Once they figured out the issue, they got a warranty claim in process and quickly got the new unit installed (Brady and LT are true professionals and pros at what they do). Our family feels in good hands with Western Heating and Air, and appreciate all the compassion and hard work to help us through this less than ideal scenario with the problems we had with the outdoor unit. THANK YOU!
