ORLANDO, Fla. — The Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) will present the seminar “Health, Comfort, Preservation: Bringing the Benefits of Humidity Home” on Tuesday, Feb. 4, from 3:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. in room W311B.
Recent research shows clear links between maintaining mid-range indoor humidity and occupant health. However, much of the discussion has been focused on commercial buildings. In this seminar, we will focus on bringing the benefits of humidity control into the home. Attendees will learn about the science of humidity and health, and how indoor moisture affects both occupants and the home. The seminar will explore the causes of indoor dryness, as well as solutions for increasing indoor humidity during dry winter months. It will conclude with best practices to ensure the continued success of humidity control in the home, including controlling condensation, understanding maintenance requirements, and educating homeowners.
