Health & Humidity

Humidity control is important to the indoor air quality of an occupied building, including germ control. There are many studies that show that for maximum health, humidity should be maintained between 40 and 60% RH (relative humidity).

Acute Respiratory Infections

Maintaining that optimum 40-60% RH increases the respiratory epithelium protection

  • Maintain mucous fluidity
  • Increase bacteria, virus elimination
  • Reduce cell damages
  • Reduce inflammation process
  • Reduce infection virulence

The Armstrong Humid-A-ware™ Humidification Sizing and Selection Software can eliminate the need for time-consuming pencil and paper calculations. The program displays a series of easy-to-understand questions about your humidification application. Your responses, often a single keystroke, will help the software determine:

  • Humidification load
  • Correct humidifier model number
  • Customized equipment and data schedule
  • Psychrometric properties of air
  • Non-wetting distance
  • A complete, printable humidification application specification
