Why Is Proper Humidity Important?
Dry air can cause nose, throat, and other physical aggravations. It can increase your likelihood of getting colds, flu and other upper respiratory ailments. Viruses that cause colds and flu thrive in low humidity.
Dry air caused by low humidity can make you feel too cold at normal temperatures leading you to turn up the thermostat. This in turn, leads to higher energy bills. Dry air also causes annoying static shocks, which can also ruin electronic devices in the home.
Lastly, heated air dries out and shrinks wood framing around doors and window frames. Gaps occur, permitting cold outside air infiltration, resulting in heat loss and higher heating costs. Heated, dry air also causes separation of wood in floors, trim and furniture and can cause wall and ceiling cracks.
At the recommended indoor relative humidity, you will feel warmer at lower temperatures (just as you feel hotter in humid weather). Visit our website for more information. www.hannabery.com
