RE: Low temp, high humidity?

Can someone please explain the correlation between low temperatures inside a residential home and high humidity. I was told to lower the temperature inside the higher humidity, Which seems to be true. But I don’t know how to explain that to homeowners. Example today tstat set for 64, temp inside 66 humidity inside 92%.

I was rereading this conversation. I apologize. My answer veered off into another topic. On point hit the nail on the head. If you lower temperature without removing moisture, you obviously have the same moisture content in the air. At that lower temperature, the moisture that is in the air is a higher percentage relative to total about of moisture the air is capable of holding at that temperature.
