Event Description

 

Humidity Control Done Right

It is well known that proper indoor environmental quality supports health and well being for occupants.  Often overlooked however is control of humidity, in particular, avoiding issues with dryness.  Recent research shows a much stronger relationship between indoor air hydration and the health of occupants than was previously thought.  Learn about the link between humidity and health, the causes of seasonal dryness, as well as best practices for mitigating dry indoor environments.  The primary focus is commercial buildings, however, we will also briefly discuss how these concepts apply to residences and industrial applications as well.
