Proper humidification combined with air purification can significantly improve the indoor air quality of your home or office.
With better air quality you can breathe easy while your air system combats the negative effects of dry air and dehydration while enabling the body’s immune system to better defend itself against harmful germs.
Dry Air is one of the major causes of respiratory infections, nose bleeds and repeated episodes of winter colds.
A lack of moisture can prevent your body’s immune system from repelling infection causing germs, and can actually promote the growth of some bacteria, viruses, and respiratory irritants.
Proper humidification allows you to maintain a comfortable living environment, while protecting your investments, and eliminating static shock.
Conditioning the amount of moisture in the air is necessary to maintain comfort.
Optimal comfort is considered to be achieved at 45-65% humidity. Most homes heated to 73 degrees can have a relative humidity approaching 15%.
These are just some of the symptoms of living in air that is too dry.
A humidifier can help to relieve these symptoms and allow you to set your thermostat lower and still be comfortable.
The following are the ideal relative humidity levels for different situations:
|The most comfortable relative humidity for the human body||45-65%RH|
|Ideal relative humidity for prophylactic and curative purposes||40-50%RH|
|Computer and telecom apparatuses||45-65%RH|
|Furniture and musical instruments||40-60%RH|
|Libraries (books), art galleries and museums||40-60%RH|
