Solve Humidity Problems
Humidification is the process of adding moisture to the air and is one of the most important aspects of total indoor comfort, yet it is one of the least understood.
One reason for this is that humidity is an intangible. It canâ€™t be seen, touched, or smelled. It has no color, no sound. However, its presence, when properly controlled, offers many proven benefits. Humidification during the heating season not only provides comfort, it helps protect the home and its furnishings from the harmful effects of air thatâ€™s too dry. In addition, physicians often recommend humidity to guard against dry skin, hair, and scratchy throats. It also reduces undesirable winter-time static electricity.
Relative humidity (RH) indicates the amount of water vapor, in percent, actually in the air compared to the maximum amount that the air could hold under the same conditions. The warmer the air, the more moisture it can hold. Air in a home heated to 70Â°F can hold about eight grains of moisture per cubic foot. That is 100%RH. If there are only two grains per cubic foot in the home, this is 1/4 of the air's capacity to hold moisture. Therefore, the RH is also 1/4 or 25%. The air could hold four times as much water.
This substantial reduction of RH from outdoor to indoor air is taking place in every unhumidified or under-humidified home where the air in the home is heated.
To solve it, we add moisture artificially, so there is more water available for that thirsty air to exercise its ability to hold more water. We humidify because there are benefits that are as important as heating to overall indoor comfort and health during the heating season.
