I live in florida- so I wouldn't really be able to tell you because humidity is an everyday thing for me. Also, my tank is in a great room that's open to the kitchen, dining room, breakfast room, hallways and living room. If their was in increase in humidity- there would be so much space for it to cover that I believe that it would be minimal. Also, I run my air conditioning hard at 72 degrees at all times. So, IMO, the lack of heat may prevent the humidity caused by evaporation. I believe that is what you are asking. If not- I emptied my inbox.

Yes. 10% weekly. Unless more is needed after testing water.
