Air engineering is a very important sector in the modern human life. Air is the essential things in our life. We cannot live without air. The quality of the air directly affects our health and life. Unhealthy air can cause various problems to people as it comes in contact with every second of life. Most people relate to the quality of the air to the dust and pollution in the air but it is not limited to only that. The quality of air also depends on the humidity level of the air.
Effects of low humidity
Exposure to low humidity can have lots of negative impacts on your health. It leads to dry skin, dry sinuses, itchy eyes and irritated throat. Viruses tend to survive longer in the low humid condition which results in a higher chance of transmission of diseases. Low humidity can also be harmful to many industries. For example in pharmaceutical industries during the manufacturing of certain types of medicine at least 65% of humidity is required. A drop of 1 to 2 percent in humidity can adversely affect the quality of the medicine. Low humidity is also equally damaging to the textile industries.

Effects of high level of humidity
Just like low humidity is dangerous for health high humidity is also equally dangerous. High humidity is associated with the development of moulds, mildews and dust mites. High humidity contributes to the sticky skin and bad odour in the air. High humidity can cause structural damage to the internal structure of the building. Humid air can also create problems in the industrial sectors. Many stock items can get damaged due to the high humid condition. The life expectancy of the machinery items also significantly decreases in case of high humidity.

What is the right level of humidity for humans?
There are many speculations about the right level of humidity for humans. Generally, it is believed that the right level of humidity for human extends from 40 percent to 60 percent. Some research has shown that the right level of humidity ranges from 35 to 45 percent. Despite the contrast, all the experts agree that the humidity should not be lower than 35 percent and more than 65 percent.
