Improving Health through Humidity Control

Correct indoor humidity levels will prevent the spread of infections, influenza epidemics, and respiratory diseases.

For office staff, air humidity has an essential impact on health and productivity. The correct humidity level in the respiratory air prevents the mucus membrane from drying out and reduces the risk posed by microorganisms and the occurrence of specific symptoms of illness. Air humidity is especially important where verbal communication plays a central role – for instance in call centers.

Air humidity in the health care sector requires a high level of attention, for instance in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes or even fitness studios. On the one hand, it contributes significantly to the recovery and the preservation of health, on the other hand it supports a high level of performance.

In residential properties, the right level of air humidity contributes to the health of residents by minimizing illness and aiding to keep resident comfortable by eliminating dry eyes, noses, and throats.

Illness - The transmission of airborne viruses, such as influenza, is significantly reduced at a humidity above 40% RH. Also, the mucous in our nose and throat is our body's natural defence against airborne pollutants. When it dries our immune system is weakened.

Skin & hair - A dry atmosphere causes skin to become susceptible to cracking, especially on the hands, and can cause hair to develop split ends and become duller.

Dust - Humidity binds dust and causes it to precipitate out of the atmosphere so when the air is dry dust and airborne pollutants are more prevalent.
