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. DV065 safeguards against excessive humidity in the home year-round.
