How are you measuring the humidity? I can't believe your RH is 60% and you don't get condensation on “lousy” windows. Again, the dew point at 60% is 53 deg F.

I have a "stand alone" electronic humidistat, and one on the furnace duct (to control the humidifier).

Some of the windows do have storm windows, several do not.

FWIW, I typically set the temp to 55F at night and 60 F to 62 F during the day. No symptoms of moisture - odor, or mold, or condensation, etc.
