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.
