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.

But we do have to humidify our home in the winter. Without humidifying the air, we do have respiratory problems. We also have skin problems. In regards to the house, without the humifier the wood trim and wood floors shrink quite a bit and leave large cracks in the joints.
