. m Ransley Jan 26, 8:20 pm Are you sure the humidistat is accurate
analog come from the store
uncalibrated, digital are better but yours could be off. Most analog I
see new are 10-15% off. Do you have condensation on windows, that is
sign your humidity is to high for outdoor low temps. Unless you have
condensation I dont believe the humidistat, unless it is warm out. "
I agree. All humidity gauges I've ever seen have varied widely. I
have a brand new digital one here that is part of a unit that measures
indoor/outdoor temps and it's around 20% off from either my analog or
the local weather reports. Older houses should be less prone to excess
humidity, because they have more air leaks. It's still possible to
have an isolated problem, like a bathroom with poor ventilation, but
it's uncommon to have a problem in the house in general. Unless you
have evidence of a problem in the house, like moisture on windows,
around recessed lights, etc, then I doubt you really have a problem.
