    Indoors or Out, There’s No True Comfort Without The Right Level of Humidity.  

    People complain about humidity all the time. It’s a great topic, especially when there’s not much else to discuss.

    Dry Indoor Air | Low Indoor Humidity

    Take the winter months, for example, especially if you have forced air (vs. radiator or baseboard) heat. The air tends to dry up and stay that way, thus causing a host of potential problems:

    • Dry, itchy skin
    • Frizzy hair
    • Wood furniture, doors, and accessories that shrink and might even crack
    • Bloody noses
    • Static shock
    • More problems with common colds and other respiratory problems

    And then there’s summer.

    Damp Indoor Air | High Indoor Humidity

    As the hourglass turns upside down to usher in summer, low humidity can turn high as soon as the calendar turns to June or so, thus causing you to sweat bullets indoors, even with central air conditioning.

    Come nighttime, you’ll have a heckuva time sleeping, your sheets and pillowcases will get soaked, and you’ll spend more money to cool your home. Potentially a lot more.

    Here are other problems caused by high indoor humidity:

    • Bugs and mold love a damp environment
    • Moisture can do a number on your home electronics
    • Worsening of symptoms for allergy and asthma sufferers
    • Extra dust to cope with

    What’s the solution?  Actually, we have two.

    Maintain Just the Right Amount of Relative Humidity

    Most experts agree that the right level of relative indoor humidity is between 35% and 50%.  Compare that, for example, to the truly awful feeling of 95% humidity, indoors or out.

    So, how does one stay well within the comfort zone:
