Preventing Indoor Mold
Managing the humidity levels in your home is extremely important to create a comfortable living space. Humidity levels that are too high or too low can cause health problems for you and your family, including mold.
The ideal relative humidity for your home should be somewhere between 30 and 50 percent. You may start to experience issues if humidity levels rise above or below that range. Mold growth is common with high levels of humidity, and it can be extremely harmful to both your house and your health. The good news is that there are ways to prevent it.
With longer runtimes, modulating systems remove more moisture from the air, preventing mold growth. And you want a system that can meet ideal humidity levels consistently. A two-stage system keeps home humidity within a safe range and would be a step in the right direction to help reduce the risk.
