Question Winter Install Hard Maple???

Hi, I'm installing 3/4"X 3 1/4" #2 Maple over new 3/4 ply subfloor. House has FA heat in winter and AC in summer as and if needed. My subfloor MC reads 9.5 to 10%. Indoor temp is held at 68 degs. Indoor RH is holding at 41%. My maple has been in the house at these conditions for over two months and is reading 6%. Could be lower as My Mini E/D only reads down to 6%. Home is short north of Seattle, WA. near the coast, I am using Aquabar-B as an underlayment paper, 2" cleats @ 4" oc and 2" from ends. I'm half way done and it donned on me that I should have be thinking about humidity changing this summer. Is my wood to dry? My house has a lot of natural wood trim. Do you think I should add humidifier/dehumidifier to my HVAC system? Now I'm concerned the the floor may buckle come summertime. Thanks !! Rick.
