What is a healthy and safe humidity level that I should try to keep my house at?

1 Answer 1


In the winter it is 30 to 40 percent in cold climates. During the summer, indoor humidity levels should be kept below about 65 percent to minimize the potential for mold growth and below about 50 percent to minimize dust mites.
