If you want to test your home humidity level, to check if it is between 50 and 60 percent, your local garden center sells devices that tell you the temperature and humidity inside your home. Although they are designed to make sure that plants in a greenhouse are in optimum growing conditions, they are equally as accurate for providing temperature and humidity readings in your home.

If you realize that the humidity level in your home is too low, then it might be worth investing in a humidifier, to increase the humidity level in problem rooms. Proper humidity in the home helps to make it more comfortable for people, animals, and plants alike.
