Each house has its own microclimate with a certain temperature, humidity, ventilation and natural light. All this affects not only the mood, but also the health status of households. At the same time, seasonal changes also affect the change in home climate. In summer, you need to drain and cool the air, and in winter you will need additional room heating.
Humidity rate in the apartment
Moisture rates in an ordinary apartment vary from 30% to 60%. To establish this data, scientists conducted a series of studies. They confirmed that if the house has humidity within these limits, people will feel normal. In addition, during the off-season, in winter and summer, the humidity level changes. So in the warm season, excess moisture is felt in the room, and in the cold - on the contrary, the air becomes dry due to heating devices.
If the humidity is not normal, health problems may occur in the residents of the house:
- due to dry air, the mucous membranes will be overdried;
- immunity will decrease;
- skin condition worsens;
- sleep disturbance;
- a chronic allergy will occur.
This is not a complete list of problems that may appear as a result of an imbalance of humidity in the house. To normalize the microclimate, you can independently adjust the moisture level in the apartment.
Improving humidity in the house
The average humidity, which is suitable for a particular home, depends on weather and climate conditions. Experts say that the best indicator is 45%, which is measured by a device such as a hygrometer. This condition also depends on the humidity outside the room.
Recommendations for increasing moisture levels:
- buy and use a household humidifier in the apartment;
- bring indoor flowers to the room;
- establish an aquarium with fish;
- ventilate all rooms regularly;
- control the use of household appliances as they drain the air.
Solving the problem of lowering humidity is also simple. It is necessary to regularly ventilate the bathroom and kitchen, where steam accumulates after bathing, washing and cooking. It is not necessary to dry the laundry in the apartment, so usually it is hung on a loggia or on a balcony. You can also purchase a household appliance that drains air.
Adhering to these simple tips, you can always normalize the humidity in the apartment. It is easy, but the benefits of normal humidity will help all households feel better.
