What is your indoor humidity?

indoorhumidityAs I mentioned on last night’s 10pm newscast, my top lip had cracked because of the lack of humidity in the studio. In fact, just looking at my half-empty big gulp of iced tea on the weather center desk proves that! There’s no condensation on the outside of the cup!

If the temperature is 15° outside with a relative humidity of 75%. Once this air is moved indoors and heated, the humidity in the air drops considerably to 10%! This means you must humidify the air in your homes and businesses this time of year in order to make your surroundings more comfortable. In some instances just having a few houseplants or boiling a pot of water will add enough moisture to the air.

Try this experiment: Drop three ice cubes into a small glass of water. Stir it well then wait three minutes. If moisture does not form on the outside of the glass, the air is too dry! Let us know what your indoor humidity is like? Do you have moisture on the outside of the glass?

    I would do that experiment, but we don’t have an ice maker in our freezer.

    Just pour some water 1/4 way into a plastic zip bag, freeze it…it should be easy to break apart into smaller pieces to put in a cup…

    A good indoor humidity is around 30%. Anything more can cause condensation to form on windows. If this happens, reduce the level of humidity. -ES

    Players on the pitch is not much better, their worst state for too long, like the keyboard on the “L” key stuck, like, played endless L, the 16-game losing streak among the lions than the success and failure for the 268-517, which is very close to some of the game the score
