Especially in autumn and winter, the indoor climate has a strong effect on well-being and health. We know that excessively dry indoor air promotes the spread of viruses and bacteria.
Humidity refers to the proportion of water vapor in the gas mixture. The ideal indoor humidity level may vary slightly from room to room, as our stay is longer and more frequent in some rooms than in others. For example, the ideal humidity in the bathroom may be higher than in the bedroom. Regardless, however, there is a relative total standard value of 40 to 60 percent humidity as the ideal value. Especially in winter, the air can become too dry due to the very cold outside temperature in heated rooms.
Effects of dry air
The drier the air, the more buoyant dust particles are. On these dust particles adhere viruses, bacteria and other pathogens, their distribution is thus favored by a low humidity. This quickly becomes noticeable in our respiratory tract due to the drying out of the mucous membranes and consequently it affects the entire health.
- eye irritation
- breathing problems
- weaker immune power
- a headache
- difficulty concentrating
- sleep problems
Optimum humidity not only reduces the spread of pathogens such as those of influenza viruses, it also boosts the immune system and improves our performance.
Optimum level of humidity
With active humidification
Through fog technology
Whether at the workplace, in event rooms or your home with fog systems, you create an ideal indoor climate with just the right humidity. High-pressure mist systems atomize the water into its smallest unit: water mist. Water mist binds particles in the air – so dust and the attached pathogens such as viruses and bacteria.
Humidification with mist systems is sustainable, cost effective and can be used throughout the year. High pressure mist systems are used in spring and summer at high temperatures with mist cooling. Find out more here >>
