Humidity, Temperature, Comfort, Heating and Cooling

Tuesday, November 2, 2010 by Tom Ruse
I always knew too much humidity and too little humidity affected my comfort;  too much and you feel stuffy and sticky.  And too little and you experience annoying static shock, itchy skin and all that. But until coming to Aprilaire, I really never realized the affect humidity has on feeling too hot or too cold.

It's true though. With the right levels of humidity you feel warmer when its cold and cooler when its real hot and humid.

Hey, who am I to argue with Discovery?

So now as we prepare to start blasting the heat, which always dries out the air, we can actually feel warmer at cooler temperatures by using a humidifier. It works.
