The concept of humidity most likely makes you think of sticky Atlanta, Georgia, summer days. Humidity is not something most people think about in regards to the air in their homes. However, the humidity in your home is essential to your health. Here are some reasons why humidity is so important.
Humidity Affects Air Quality
The quality of the air in your home affects the health of everyone living in it. If the air is too dry and the humidity drops below a certain level, it can cause respiratory issues such as bloody noses and dry sinuses. If there is too much water in the air and the humidity level rises, it allows microorganisms such as bacteria to grow.
Humidity Can Affect Your Home
If the moisture level is too high or too low, it can harm your home and many of the things in your home. If the air is too dry, wood can crack and split. Items such as hardwood floors, instruments, and furniture can become warped and ruined. Likewise, excess moisture in the air can get into the walls and under the floors and cause problems.
