What is The Best Humidity Level in Winter?

We can’t give you the exact number, because the humidity level depends on the inside and outside temperatures. It is necessary to adjust the temperature so that you don’t get condensation on your window, damage your home or get some health issues.

How does condensation work?

We will use the window example. On a cold day, windows get colder because they lose the heat to the outside temperature. The air inside is warm, so moisture is collecting on the cold window. It can also happen if your windows are not energy efficient.

Condensation can lead to household damage

If the humidity in your home is higher than expected, condensation can cause some damage. From the window, it can roll down and soak into the window frame and cause wood rot or damage to the wall below.

Further, the humidity level can lead to respiratory issues and allergies.

How to know what the humidity level is?

The best way to determine your home’s humidity level is to use a hygrometer, a tool specifically designed to measure the water vapor content of the air.

Maintain the HVAC system and clean it regularly to ensure healthy air in your home.
