    Well, I was hoping for more than 3 guesses on the poll.


    What's the proper humidity level for my home?

    It depends. Generally, the colder the weather outside, the more humidity you need inside. That's because colder air tends to be drier air and, as the outside temperature drops, the moisture is drawn out of the house. To gauge the humidity level in your home, use an accurate hygrometer. Most people find that humidity levels between 40 and 50% are comfortable during the heating season.

    I believe I read somewhere around 50% in the summer and 35% in winter??

    Central air conditioning help reduce the humidity in summer, in winter some type of humidifier helps keep the air from getting too dry.

    I just replaced my entire HVAC system [12k Canadian expense] adding central air conditioning, replacing furnace and including a whole house humidifier at furnace and including replacing the hot water tank.
