Have you ever woken up with a dry mouth and a sore throat? Humidity levels in your bedroom are likely to have fallen below the internationally accepted threshold for a healthy indoor climate. But what exactly is the threshold? And how do you create the perfect atmosphere for a good night’s sleep?

Why does humidity matter?

Humidity is the concentration of water vapor in the air. The humidity level in your home can affect your personal health in many ways. Excessively high humidity, for example, is associated with higher concentrations of allergens, while exposure to excessively low humidity can cause health problems such as dry skin, itchy eyes and sore throat. Maintaining healthy humidity levels is important to make the bedroom a comfortable space and ensures a healthy sleep cycle for rejuvenation.

How can I ensure the perfect climate?

Humidity levels are usually measured by the relative humidity which is the ratio of water vapor in the air to the amount of vapor that can be present in the air at a given temperature. The best relative humidity for sleep has been a topic of discussion but most studies agree that the best indoor relative humidity is between 40 and 60%. If you usually wake up with a sore throat and dry eyes, the relative humidity level in your bedroom may have dropped well below the 40% threshold.

Ensuring a perfect indoor climate can be a challenge. In climates with extremely high humidity levels, it is a good idea to install an air conditioning system with a built-in dehumidifier . These systems automatically detect values ​​that exceed the preferred humidity level (usually starting at 60 ° C) and extract moisture from the air to achieve healthy humidity levels.

For extremely low humidity levels, installing an air purifier with a built-in humidifier can help achieve a healthier, more comfortable indoor climate. For example the ionizer with Daikin humidification function, injects moisture into the air when the relative humidity falls below the preferred level (usually starting at 40%) to maintain a healthy humidity level. Daikin air purifiers also minimize asthma and allergy symptoms by removing dust particles and pollen from the air, and Streamer technology keeps the air healthy and clean by eliminating allergens, eliminating bacteria and removing odors. This cleaning element separates ionizers with a humidification function from traditional humidifiers as traditional humidifiers tend to accumulate pollutants instead of eliminating them, allowing them to continue to reproduce and possibly cause disease. And what about the noise? The Daikin humidifier with built-in humidifier is extremely quiet thanks to a new innovative device and a state-of-the-art quiet operation, making it one of the quietest series of air purifiers on the European market. The perfect solution for a good night’s sleep while at the same time staying healthy, refreshed and feeling comfortable.
