Did you know…..Research indicates there are indirect health effects of relative humidity (RH) in indoor environments. A research article found on PubMed Central suggests that RH can affect the incidence of respiratory infections and allergies. Experimental studies on airborne-transmitted infectious bacteria and viruses show that survival or infectivity is minimized when RH is maintained between 40% and 70%.
How does this affect you? This study also found that the incidence of absenteeism and respiratory infections was found to be lower among people working or living in environments with mid-range versus low or high relative humidity. This basically says that you will be happy and healthier when the space you live and work in has proper levels of RH.
