Humidity Is Relative!
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is more than just purifying your air. It’s about comfort; and comfort depends on the level of humidity within your home. A properly humidified home will feel cool in the summer, and cozy in the winter. A properly sized humidifier for the winter or a dehumidifier for the summer, installed by Brown’s will enhance your IAQ; giving you the indoor comfort you desire!
Relative humidity plays a very important part in your home or office. Most materials in your home required some level of humidity. Wood floors, plaster, carpets, antiques, artwork, and instruments like pianos ALL NEED moisture. Have you ever notice how your floors or stairs squeak more in the winter? It’s because of the dry air. Lack of moisture in your possessions will deteriorate their life span. Low humidity may cause a cracked sound board in your piano, cracks in art work and splits in antique furniture.
Some house’s relative humidity is lower than what found in a desert! Low humidity homes are great breeding grounds for bacteria and viruses too. Many viruses thrive in low humidity environments. People, on the other hand, are much healthier when the relative humidity is between 35%-50%. To attain this in the winter, most houses will require a steam humidifier—the most efficient and satisfying humidifier in the market. Don’t settle for a room humidifier that you have to fill every day and replace nasty evaporation media. Those can harbor nasty bacteria and fungi.
