Humidity Level Icon

AcuRite's weather and environment products that track indoor humidity feature a humidity level icon, or home comfort icon, to easily convey a low, high, or ideal humidity level for your health and home environment. Humidity can have a large impact on your personal comfort, health safety, and valuables (learn more). The ideal humidity level, or home comfort, is determined through relative humidity (RH) levels, as demonstrated by the images below.

 

low humidity home comfort

humidity OK for home comfort

humidity HIGH for home comfort

LOW Humidity Level
Less than 30% RH
Humidity level is low relative to the temperature*. This makes for a dry environment.

OK Humidity Level
Between 30% - 55% RH
Humidity level is OK relative to the temperature*. This makes for a comfortable environment.

HIGH Humidity Level
Over 55% RH
Humidity level is high relative to the temperature*. This makes for a humid environment.

 

*The Home Comfort Level icon is based on both the humidity and temperature readings. The Home Comfort Level Icon will indicate “OK” when the Humidity is between 30%-55% and the Temperature is also between 68-76 degrees Fahrenheit. “Low” will display when either the Humidity or Temperature is below the "OK" comfort zone range. “High” will display when either the Humidity or Temperature is above the "OK" comfort zone range.

Note: It is possible for both the “Low” & “High” indicators to be displayed simultaneously if one parameter is above the comfort range and the other below the range. (for example 20% RH and 85 degrees Fahrenheit)
