Especially now with the beginning of the heating season and in the cold months of the year, the indoor climate has an enormously high impact on our well-being. Temperature and humidity are the deciding factors.
Optimum room temperature
The ideal room temperature in autumn and winter is
- 20 – 23 degrees in working space, living room, children’s and bathroom
- 17 – 20 degrees in bedroom and kitchen
- 16 – 18 degrees in the hallway
- 40 – 60% in living room, study, bedroom, nursery and hall
- 50 – 70% in bathrooms and basements
Neither perfect room temperature nor ideal humidity are the same for every room, so the average temperature is between 20 and 23 degrees and the humidity range between 40 and 60%.
In autumn and winter, the room air can be very dry due to the cold outside temperatures. This is of central importance to our well-being and our health.
Effects on dry room air
Dry air makes its presence felt quickly in our respiratory tract, but affects all of our health.
- eye irritation
- breathing problems
- weaker immune power
- a headache
- difficulty concentrating
- sleep problems
When the air is very dry, at the same time more dust particles are buzzing around. These dust particles are an ideal breeding ground for viruses, bacteria and pathogens. They remain attached to the dust and by a low indoor humidity, their distribution is also favored.
Ist die Luft sehr trocken, schwirren zugleich mehr Staubpartikel umher. Diese Staubpartikel sind idealer Nährboden für Viren, Bakterien und Krankheitserreger. Sie bleiben am Staub haften und durch eine niedrige Raumluftfeuchtigkeit wird ihre Verbreitung zudem begünstigt.
An optimal humidity not only reduces the spread of pathogens (eg flu viruses), it also strengthens the immune system and improves our capacity.
Ideal indoor climate with fog systems
Mist systems make it possible for you to have an ideal indoor climate – be it at the workplace, your home, in event rooms or in cafés and restaurants.
The operation is simply explained: water is atomized by means of high pressure in its smallest unit, the water mist. The room temperature gets the ideal humidity and the resulting water mist binds the dust – including viruses and bacteria adhering to it – in the air.
Air 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
