Looking for useful tips and information about air? You’ve come to the right place. We have lots of valuable information to share; we’ll make you an air expert! Before I came to Stadler Form I’d not really engaged with the issue of air quality and didn't realise its importance. I soon became aware of the effects on my health and how easy it is to improve your quality of life. If someone had told me then that my skin problems were caused by air humidity, I would have dismissed it out of hand. That would be too easy, wouldn’t it? I've known for some time that I'm allergic to mites. But I didn’t realise that the symptoms can get better or worse depending on the level of humidity. And it’s mostly «just» a 5 -10% change in the air humidity that can make a difference.
Selina sets the tone at home
So the first thing I did was to take our hygrometer lady home with me. I set Selina up with very low expectations. I still had the feeling that the air was absolutely fine. After a short while I looked at Selina and got a real surprise. The air humidity stood at 70 %. At this point, I should explain that it was summer and I live in an apartment above a natural cellar in an old building. The humidity from the cellar is literally pushed into my apartment. So I fetched the Albert little dehumidifier and set him up. And the result spoke for itself: when the air humidity drops my skin gets better and my sleep improves too. I used to feel like I was «drowning» but I sleep much better now. The only thing that keeps me awake at the moment is my cat having a mad five minutes at 4 am and turning the flat upside down. But that's another story ...
Well-being oasis, thanks to optimal air quality
Over the winter months, my humidifier Oskar took charge of the air humidity because it very quickly went to the other extreme: I felt like I was drying out. I know that’s a slight exaggeration. But when my eyes are so dry that I can hardly open them in the morning and my use of body lotion increases infinitely, I find myself longing for more humid days again. I had moved Albert little to the cellar a storey below where he was providing a pleasant climate for the spiders. His winter break is coming to an end so I’ll set him up in the apartment soon. It’s already starting to feel like I’m back in a tropical greenhouse again. I've found the ideal humidity for me is between 50-55%. You have to experiment yourself to find the right humidity for you. In general, however, I would recommend a value between 40 and 60%. Apart from «too dry» and «too damp», there are other factors that can contribute to pleasant air. We'll be delighted to tell you more about them in the blog articles to come. Always wanted to find the answer to a burning question? Use the comment section below.
