Why measuring the humidity of materials is essential?

Measuring moisture in materials, whether firewood or building materials, is crucial for several reasons, ranging from safety to efficiency to sustainability.


For Firewood:

  • Combustion Efficiency : Well-dried wood has better combustion efficiency. Wood that is too wet will burn less efficiently, producing less heat and more residue like soot or creosote, which can build up in your chimney or stove and create a fire hazard.
  • Emissions Reduction : Dry wood produces less smoke and harmful emissions, which is better for the environment and indoor air quality.
  • Quality of the Flame : Properly dried wood produces a more consistent and controllable flame, improving the home wood fire experience.

For Construction Materials:

  • Prevention of Mold and Fungus : High humidity in building materials encourages the growth of mold and fungus, which can degrade building quality and pose health risks.
  • Structural Integrity : Materials that are too wet can warp, swell or crack over time. Measuring humidity helps ensure that the materials used are in optimal condition for construction or renovation.
  • Adhesion of Paints and Coatings : For paints, coatings and other finishes to adhere properly and last longer, it is important that the surface to which they are applied has an appropriate humidity level.

By accurately measuring the moisture content of materials, you can make informed decisions that affect not only the quality and durability of your project or your comfort in your home, but also your health and safety. Our moisture meters provide the accuracy and reliability needed to make these essential measurements with ease and precision.

What are the ideal humidity levels for its materials? 

Determining the appropriate moisture standards for different materials is crucial to ensuring their optimal quality and performance. Here's an overview of recommended moisture ranges for various common types of materials.

For the drink, a humidity level ideal is located below 14%. At this level, the wood is dry enough to burn efficiently, producing maximum heat while minimizing smoke and residue production. However, a humidity level passable can be between 14 and 20%, although this can reduce combustion efficiency and increase the amount of smoke generated.

About the plaster, a humidity level ideal is less than 1%. This level of humidity guarantees good adhesion of finishes and minimizes the risk of mold development. A humidity level passable, between 1 and 3%, is generally tolerated, but care must be taken to avoid humidity problems which could lead to complications in the future.

For the concrete, a humidity level ideal is less than 2.5%. This indicates that the concrete has dried to a level suitable for the application of floor coverings, paints and adhesives. However, a humidity level passable is between 2.5 and 4%. In this case, it may be necessary to adopt additional measures to ensure the adhesion and longevity of the applied coatings.
