Maintaining Ideal Humidity

Dew points and relative humidity (RH) affect the way your body
senses heat. Higher humidity levels cause the air to feel much hotter than the actual temperature. When
maintained properly, you can run your cooling equipment less because dehumidified air feels cooler.
Ideal humidity is defined by industry experts* as being between 40-60% on an average annual basis. When
indoor humidity exceeds 60%, the home is more susceptible to mold and mildew growth. DR65A3000 safe-
guards against excessive humidity in the home year-round.
WHAT THE AIR FEELS LIKE
HOW HOT THE HEAT-HUMIDITY COMBINATION MAKES IT FEEL.
EXAMPLE: AIR AT 90ºF WITH 50% RH FEELS LIKE 96ºF TO THE HUMAN BODY!
