    What is the actual number I should have my humidity set to? Its lockdown starting today and I put it up to 65. Is that good or should I have it be 70 or 75? So many websites say different numbers so I'm confused as to what I should raise it to....Thank you in advance [​IMG]

    65 is the lowest I let mine get during lockdown and if stays there I don't worry about it. If you wan to raise it to 70% that won't cause harm.
