After the Christchurch Earthquake, I noticed the moisture levels in the house changed, as my grandson lives with me and suffers from asthma I like to keep an eye on humidity and try to make it as healthy as possible for him.
Medical studies have confirmed that high levels of humidity (moisture) in homes – above 50-60% - increase the risk of asthma and diseases. It’s important to keep an eye on the humidity levels in your house.
I do this by using a Hygrometer. This instrument tells me the percentage of humidity in the room I place it in, so I know if I need to ventilate it.
Some new houses being built have doors and windows that do not allow for ventilation. They are so tightly sealed that no air can get through.In older style houses you may get air flow but often the houses are built with older, less efficient materials trapping mould and moisture within the walls of these homes.
The Living Climate Hygrometer displays easy to understand values for indoor climate reading in any type of house.Here at Barometers and Clocks we have a range of Hygrometer’s – either combined weather stations or just Hygrometers that will allow you effectively manage the moisture in your house.
