Humidity levels are usually described as "relative humidity", this being the amount of moisture
in the air relative to its temperature. The warmer air is the more humidity it can hold, so as air
is heated moisture must be added to maintain the desired "relative humidity" levels. Average
homes have an air change rate of .5 - 1 air change per hour; the entire air in your home will
be replaced with outside air every one to two hours. Since that cold air is heated to around
70 degrees the relative humidity drops dramatically if moisture isn't added. Newer humidifiers,
such as "flow thru" are much more effective and require a lot less maintenance. Steam
humidifiers are the best solution for larger applications, but are a bit more expensive.

The air in your home is always trying to reach its saturation point, it will absorb water wherever
it can; from the bodies of you and your children, your pets, your furniture and even your house
plants. Low humidity causes dry skin, throat and nasal passages, leaving one more susceptible
to colds and flu. It causes gaps in windows and doors frames, increasing infiltration and home
heating costs. It causes cracking in wood floors and expensive furniture as well as annoying
static electricity that can harm computers and other electronics. Humidity makes a home feel
warmer; 68° at 40% relative humidity feels just as warm as 74° at 20% humidity, setting your
thermostat back by as little as three degrees can reduce annual heating bills by as much as 5%.
