What is the ideal humidity level for my home?

The ideal humidity level for your home should be comfortable for you and easy to maintain. But it should also be healthy and good for your house and the furnishings inside. Below a 40% humidity level is considered “low” and is hard on your respiratory system. Above 60% is considered “high” which increases risks for mold and structural damage. So the best point for your home is somewhere in the middle of these two numbers. Your home’s thermostat may already inform you what the indoor humidity level is, but if you not, you can purchase a humidity detector of your own.
