Low humidity can affect humans, animals and goods
In humans low humidity can reduce their quality of life and affect their health. It often causes respiratory illnesses (cough, colds, hoarseness), headaches, fatigue, lack of concentration, dry skin and cracked lips. A humidity of 40-50% is ideal for living spaces.
Products also require a certain residual humidity or their quality might be affected. They become fragile, brittle or they shrink or tear.
Valuable exhibition objects or cultural assets require very specific air conditions or they might be lost for ever. Wood carvings, paintings and organs etc. are especially vulnerable.
In industrial production processes material which is too dry can lead to processing defects, lack of quality, high reject rates and expensive shut downs.
Dry air increases electrostatic charging. This can affect computers and printers.
Airing alone is often not enough since, especially in winter, the cold outside air is even drier than the room air. In addition, expensive heating energy is wasted. Therefore, an air humidification system is needed which adds moisture to the dry air.
Each system has specific advantages and limitations. Important criteria when selecting a humidifier include the size of the room, how the room is used, required convenience levels etc. For this reason we are committed to advising our customers on which system is the most suitable for them.
