It is best to keep the humidity level between 30~50 percent of relative humidity.
The comfort level of humidity will vary from room to room and with changing room conditions.
In cold weather, windows and sometimes walls may fog or develop frost from excessive indoor
humidity. If this occurs, reduce the mist intensity setting to avoid damage from condensed water
dripping on windowsills.
Too much humidity in the room may allow moisture to accumulate on surfaces where bacteria and
fungi can grow. Moisture that gathers may also damage furniture, walls and wallpaper.
To eliminate excessive humidity, especially in smaller rooms, leave the room door or window open
and adjust the mist intensity control accordingly.
