IF,

According to what I've read, 30% RH and below is uncomfortable and can cause respiratory problems. Have you actually measured levels this low?

I've never measured a number this low but I thought I've heard it mentioned around here. I could be wrong.


My previous house, in Colorado (at 8000 ft. elevation), almost never got above 25% relative humidity unless it was raining. And that was with two large-capacity furnace-mounted humdifiers going.
