MOISTURE CONTENT OF WOOD AT VARIOUS TEMPERATURES Et RELATIVE HUMIDITY READINGS

Equilibrium moisture content percentage in the recommended temperature/humidity range
Wood flooring will perform best when the interior environment is controlled to stay within a relative humidity range of 30 to 50 percent and a temperature range of 60 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Fortunately, that’s about the same comfort range most humans enjoy.

The chart above indicates the moisture content wood will likely have at any given combination of temperature and humidity.
