AbstractThe temperature and humidity of the air in houses affects the comfort of the occupants and the performance of the building and furnishings. Very low humidity may have adverse physiological effects and may cause damage due to shrinkage of moisture-sensitive materials. Excessive humidity may result in objectionable condensation on windows and within the structure in winter and deterioration of materials due to high moisture content.
