Low humidity levels in your home or workplace can lead to increased levels of static electricity, dry skin, cracked lips and cracking furniture. We recommend keeping humidity levels in your environment between 45 to 55% relative humidity with a humidifier. During the winter months it’s particularly important to pay attention to these levels, as relative humidity in the average home can drop to below 20%.
When your airways are dry, your body’s natural defence mechanisms are reduced. Dust particles, bacteria, viruses, dust mite faeces that are normally trapped by the moist nasal membrane lining can more easily get into the lungs. These invaders can further irritate the mucous membranes, resulting in more coughing and susceptibility to disease.
The Oskar Big humidifier from Swiss manufacturer Stadler Form combines stylish design with powerful humidification. This extremely economical machine uses evaporator technology for a very quiet, mess-free mist. It even switches itself off when the tank is empty, further reducing energy consumption.
