We have a 25 year old ranch style home with an energy efficient furnace. We did extensive remodeling 2 years ago with new windows etc. Our humidity is approximately 70 percent in our home. We are running a dehumidifier upstairs and in the lower level because of all of the moisture on the inside of the windows in the am. We cannot get the humidity below 60 percent even running both of the humidifiers. At the time of remodeling we did put 4 new roof vents in the attic and we do have exhaust fans in the bathrooms that we do run when showering. The moisture has been so bad that we have condensation on the ceiling as well as the drywall walls. We live in SD and the humidity in the average home runs at about 45 - 50%. We have asked several homebuilders in the area and they have no answers but that we do have to get the humidity reduced or we will ruin the new windows and possibly the drywall in our home. HELP US PLEASE - We would love any suggestions. THANK YOU
