When you hear the word humidity, you probably associate it with a meteorologist talking about the weather…hot, humid, bad hair days. But, did you know the humidity level in your home, known as indoor relative humidity, has a great effect on the quality of air in your home? When it measures between 40% and 60%, it helps prevent the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria. It also minimizes allergy and asthma problems.
How can you remedy the humidity level in your home? You may need a new air conditioning system or you may need to add a dehumidifier to your existing system.
