Indoor Humidity – Moisture in the Home
You know when your home’s air is too hot or cold. That’s because you feel uncomfortable. But the amount of moisture in your home’s air also has an impact on the way you feel, plus it can have a major effect on your health.
Too Much Moisture
High moisture levels can make your home feel stuffy and create a breeding ground for mold, mildew, dust mites and bacteria. Recent studies have shown that mold can cause or worsen asthma, as well as hay fever and other allergies*.
Not Enough Moisture
Dry air makes furniture shrink, warp and crack. Plus, it causes skin irritation and respiratory problems, not to mention annoying static shocks.
