Fun Facts About Humidity
- The driest place on earth is Death Valley, with a relative humidity of 25%, but the relative humidity of a home in Minnesota on a 10-degree day with a forced air furnace blowing can be in the single digits!
- There are fewer germs in the winter than during any other season. We often develop colds in the winter because we’re trapped indoors with germs and dry air.
- The drier your home air, the more rapid the rate of evaporation of perspiration on your skin, so the quicker the body cools. The normal response is to turn up the heat. However, the higher you turn the heat, the drier the air becomes. The more your body evaporates moisture, the cooler you feel!
