15% relative humidity, that is too low. The felt quiets the floor, helps to keep the rooms warmer, and also stops any moisture that may transfer between main living and crawl or basements.

Get something like this http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...uctId=11361230 I have a older version with one sensor in our attic, one in our garage, that I used to have that one down in our basement. Our house stays around 55% to 62% Rh in the main floor and basement. I have seen it get as low as 39% for a day, but next day would go back to 55%.

You really do not want the Rh too low, due to it will cause more problems than good. Especially with flooring.
