Comfort in our homes depends largely on creating the ideal climate, which science has established as being 20-24° C for temperature and 40-60% for relative humidity. In winter in particular, when buildings are heated, the level of relative humidity can fall drastically. Skin and mucous membranes can become dry, allergies and respiratory tract infections are more likely to develop and unwanted microorganisms like bacteria and viruses can proliferate. Dry air can also affect our perception of the temperature (lower than it really is in winter), make us feel tired and cause a drop in concentration. Maintaining the right level of humidity is therefore crucial to ensure personal health and wellbeing, in the workplace too.
