Your Family's Health

Today, we are going to discuss the topic “Indoor humidity and your family’s health”. Before continuing with this topic, we have to know what is meant by humidity and its importance. Humidity means moisture in the air. It is most important in this living world. Moreover, humidity is closely related to the atmospheric temperature.

The importance of Indoor humidity and family health

Indoor humidity is the representation of our home (or room) temperature. The most important factor is only depending on humidity we can classify our region as two types as suitable for living and not suitable for living.

The main cause of losing humidity is global warming. Trees are mostly destroyed in the name of development activities like constructions of factories, new houses, a making of roads and so on. Outtake of the huge amount of water from the earth and fails of usual rainfall will create the worst situation among humidity.

Moreover maintaining of indoor humidity is most important. We already know that the water in the hot temperature will be easily absorbed by the air rather in the cool temperature. If the room temperature is too high, it will cause various impacts on the health.

Role of the air conditioner

Let us consider an example, many of them using air conditioners in the home. The role of such air conditioner is to cool the hot air in the room. Meanwhile, it absorbs the humidity from the air and cools the room temperature and exhales the hot air outside the room. In this situation, already humidity is lacking in the atmosphere, the AC or hot air (room temperature) will absorb the moisture from our body. It will make our skin dry and cause various health problems like a dry cough, fever, and various skin problems.

We are responsible for maintaining our family’s health and indoor humidity by various activities. Plant more trees, around the home which prevents heavy sun rays directly, enters the home.

Gardening is an art. Only a few of us are showing interest in making a garden. The main reason is many of the houses are located in the critical region by which empty spaces are not available around their home. Alternate solution for the same is indoor planting and make a garden on the roof of the home. Usually, the most important role of plants and trees will increase the humidity in the air by naturally without causing any side effects.


Many of us watched that the leaves in the trees on the roadside are looks like dry and fallen from the trees shortly. This is mainly because of lack of humidity in the atmosphere. Once we pour water or rain, the tree will get back to the normal and looks like fresh and green. Likewise, our human body also needs humidity.  Always try to drink more water as much you can. Drinking of plenty water is good for health in a natural way.
