The term “humidity” takes your mind to something uncomfortable: hot days. Humid days, especially in summer, is a terrifying experience for many, and people sit inside their homes or escape to cooler places to get rid of the extreme conditions.

While it creates discomfort for you, humidity is known to have several benefits as well. Places that are known for excess humidity are also credited with good rainfall.

Therefore, the humidity according to the changing climatic condition is good for nature as well as humans and animals.

How about the high humidity inside your property? Is that as good as exterior humidity?

Note that it is just the exterior humidity, and human activities and lack of ventilation can make the interior humidity go up, compared to the exterior. People experience the following things due to high humid conditions:

• Since the air has high moisture, people do not experience the evaporation of sweating that can cool off their body. It makes people feel hotter than the actual temperature.
