    Indoor Humidity Issues During Extreme Cold Weather

    If your windows inside collect moisture and ice during the cold snaps, you may have a humidity problem. Managing your home humidity levels can be a difficult task during the winter months. Indoor humidity recommendations change during temperature extremes based on how cold it is outside. If the outside temperature is between 0°C to -10°C, the indoor humidity should be between 25% – 30%; between -10°C to -20°C, the humidity should not exceed 20%, outside temperatures colder than -20°C should not exceed an indoor humidity of 15%.

    Installing a Smart Thermostat in your home allows you to assess and change your humidity any time with the touch of a button. To prevent costly repairs, your humidifier should be inspected by a certified technician annually along with your furnace to ensure it is working as intended and to look for any signs of corrosion or leaking.
