What’s the right level of indoor humidity?
According to most HVAC professionals, the perfect indoor humidity range is around 34-50%. If humidity is over 50%, it can cause some problems. Water droplets can begin to condense on windows, dripping downward and damaging nearby wood, paint, and flooring. It also creates more amenable conditions for unwanted mold and mildew growth, which requires moisture. However, humidity that’s too low can cause your nose and throat to feel dry. It can also cause a higher probability of static electricity buildup; believe it or not, this can damage TVs, computers, and other electronics.
