Moisture meters are indispensable when it comes to determining moisture in buildings and timber, as well as discovering the cause of moisture damage. Moisture measurement is quick and easy to do nowadays, even for inexperienced users. A wide range of instuments and humidity probes enable non-destructive measurement in virtually all common materials and timber.
Testo Moisture Meter are simple to operate. Nevertheless, you should adhere to a few rules to ensure you take advantage of the maximum performance from your meter:
You should not let your body heat or breath reach the probe.
Gentle movement helps the probe adjust to the right temperature.
Always measure relative humidity in the middle of the room at a height of around 3.5 feet On the other hand, the absolute humidity in a room does not depend on the location.
Incredible humidity sensor technology
With a Testo material moisture meter, you are ready to measure for every aspect involving moisture. Your advantages:
High-precision sensor technology for high-precision measurement of wood/material moisture.
Handy moisture meter for fast and easy operation.
All the important material characteristics for wood types and building materials are stored.
Clear, illuminated displays make handling easier.
Large selection of different models and humidity probes – the perfect instrument for every application.
The best thing is: cutting-edge performance at a persuasive price.
There can be several causes for moisture in buildings or timber. The most common of these are rainwater ingress, incorrectly installed drainage, pipe ruptures, or incorrectly stored wood which has been processed with the wrong moisture for installation. A Testo Moisture Meter enables you to determine the moisture level quickly and easily. It works even better if you bear in mind the following tips:
With material moisture measurement, it is important that your own body heat and importantly, warm breath do not flow onto the probe. A remedy for this is moving the probe around – not too vigorously, but also not too slowly. This allows the probe to adjust to the right temperature and to detect the material moisture accurately.
When you assess humidity for the first time, you should bear these four factors in mind: 1. Production of humidity in the room. 2. Wireless: Bluetooth Probes Air exchange with the outside air, as well as its temperature and degree of humidity. 3. Do not breathe on the probe: The air you breathe is saturated with CO₂ and must not flow in the direction of the probe. Ability of walls and furnishings to absorb humidity. 4. Transport of humidity by external building components.
If surfaces are too wet, mold will form sooner or later. The surface moisture function of the Testo thermal imagers enable you to detect the areas susceptible to mold at an early stage and to take the appropriate measures.
All air and air conditioning technology is governed by standards and directives which are uniform all over Europe. This means an accuracy of ± 15% is stipulated for humidity measurement when commissioning air technology systems. Make sure you use a high-precision humidity meter for the measurement in order to obtain standard-compliant measurement results. With Testo you are always on the safe side.

Would you like to measure material moisture, but also continuously record the data? Then a moisture data logger is the ideal instrument for you. You can easily and intuitively program in min. and max. or limit values. If limit values are exceeded, an alarm is triggered. Smart software solutions offer detailed results in a variety of configurations. Data loggers with an external humidity probe have a particularly fast response.
In addition to moisture measurement, air humidity is the second important humidity parameter. In most cases, a humidity meter is combined with other relevant measurement parameters, so that you can undertake temperature or moisture measurements simultenously. That is Testo efficiency!
