Humidity Issues And Solution

dehumidifiers-humiditySince many homes suffer from humidity, I decided to tackle this issue and share some info on it. it’s true that not all people are sensitive to moisture and molds, but in the positive case, it could lead to serious health issues. Throat irritation, nasal stuffiness, eye irritation are some of these problems. In case the person has mold allergy the reaction could be even worse. This is why this issue should be taken seriously.

WHERE DOES THE HUMIDITY COME FROM IN A HOUSE ?

Air indoors become highly humid as a result of many factors.
I Western ares, moisture is most felt in winter days when weather is cold and damp. This happens because humidity indoor comes from the confrontation of water vapor coming from the house and cold coming from outside that infiltrates a poorly insulated interior.
Indeed, our daily activities generate moisture: dishes, showers, baths, drying clothes, cooking, the simple fact of breathing also generates moisture.

These everyday activities and the moisture they generate will not be a problem if the site is properly heated and insulated, however, if not, moisture will concentrate and condense in the coldest parts of the house. Consequently, moisture is often found on thin walls exposed to outside air, near windows or in an unheated room. Moisture can also be felt and noticed in a non-homogeneously heated room where the air can not circulate. Similarly, a closet that is stuck to a cold wall will very likerly cause your clothes to suffer.

HOW IS MOISTURE MANIFESTED AND HOW BAD IS IT?

The humidity in the air is not a totally bad things as it’s part of nature that has a role, it is even desirable because otherwise the air would be too dry. However it is important that it does not exceed a certain level. For us as humans, the most comfortable relative humidity is between 45% and 65% of water vapor in the air.

Generally, we known that an interior is too wet when notice that small droplets of water have appeared on the glass of a our windows. These droplets of water are the result of condensation. This doesn’t become a problem until this phenomenon of condensation begin to give rise to mold. The effects of mold are particularly unpleasant in an interior

Home Health Improvement Devices

When one member of the family is an allergy sufferer, it´s the beginning of a story that could develop until it ends by trying all sort of medicines and devices. This is a big field of research for both scientists and engineers that together collaborate to come up with new solutions. From Ventolin to air purifiers, all sort of devices are created and developed.

Technology, Design and Health

“Give me something easy, not painful, looks nice, not expensive and which will improve our health as soon as possible”. This is how I see what people hope for today. There are many disciplines, as this subheading suggests, involved in the process of creating a health improvement device and which are Technology, Design and Health.

Technology

To come with the faster processing device, technology is high priority for companies as it’s the main pillar on which they could praise the merit of their products. The company Guardian Technologies for examples have implemented various technologies in its GermGuardian air purifiers. HEPA Filters, UV-C Technology and Charcoal Filter are all technologies which are used to market their air cleaning systems. For more in depth info check GermGuardian.net.

Design

Design is an essential component today because of it’s different benefits. Design is ergonomy. A nicely designed device will fulfill the task it’s designed for in the easiest way possible. Design is decoration. A dehumidifier for exam

ple is a device meant to lower moisture level inside homes, but if it shouldn’t compromise the interior design. Design is also used to give a feeling of sturdiness while using only plastic, so buyers should pay attention to this fact.

Health

This is in reality the most important aspect of these devices. Because air purifiers, dehumidifiers and humidifiers are all meant to serve a health purpose, failing in this mission would nullify the value of technology and design. Many customers are aware of this aspect and are looking for review all around the internet before purchasing any home improvement unit so that they could base the quality and efficiency of these devices on the experiences of owners.

Ozeri Brezza Desktop Fan Review | Keeping Cool in the Summer Heat !

Ozeri-Brezza-Oscillating-High-Velocity-Desk-Fan-review (2)Summer is almost upon us and in Southern California we’ve already had many spring days that felt more like summer with temperatures reaching the upper eighties.

Our house is energy efficient with dual paned windows and a house fan to keep air circulating. We also have shutters that really help with temperature control. It usually has to be in the upper 90’s, low 100’s before we have to use our air conditioning. It can get a little uncomfortable though so we like to use portable fans in each room to stay cool, especially at night.

My daughter didn’t have much space in her room for a full sized floor fan so I went with this Ozeri Brezza for her because I could set it on her dresser without taking up much space. It’s all ready to go and set up with no assembly required. Just plug it in.

We like to have “white noise” in all our rooms at night to drown out the sound of barking dogs, house noises and kids waking up at all hours. This fan is definitely the loudest in the house. It’s not quiet at all, even on the lowest setting. I have to keep it there for my daughter so it doesn’t make TOO much noise.

It’s a very simple basic fan with one knob to turn to the different settings and push for oscillation. My daughter prefers not to have it moving so we just keep it on number one without oscillation but it’s nice to have the option. When we had our carpet cleaned I had it on the highest speed and oscillating to speed up drying. This setting is extremely loud.

The Ozeri Brezza is great for what we need and a nice basic fan. It’s a bit loud if you care about that but otherwise a solid little fan.

Perfect Love Tokens, To Show Your Man How Much He Means To You

When it come to buying love tokens, often men have it easy don’t they? They can just pop out, or go online and get one of the thousands of heart or love themed objects that are specially designed for women. But when us girls have to do the same for them, it often means putting in a bit more though and work. Luckily we have come up with a guide to help you solve the dilemma of what you get your boo as a token of your love. Just keep reading to find out more.

Something Personalized

A lovely way of showing how much room your other half occupies in your heart is by getting them a personalized gift. Happily, there are many shops that now specialize in things like this, so there are no longer difficult to find.

Particularly good ideas include wallets, necklaces, or rings with the coordinates of where you first met, got together, or got married on them.

Or another sweet male focused personalized gifts include cute word pictures containing all the things that they love, or the things that you love to do together.

necklaces

Or if you prefer more of a scrapbook vibe then why not try a smash book? These are scrapbooks that are designed to be added to quickly and organically to make a fantastic document of a special time in your life. You can really put anything you like in there including pictures, napkins from his favorite restaurants, poems or other ephemera.

Love Letters

Ok, this might sound a bit corny, but you don’t have to start quoting Shakespeare or anything. Instead, you can just write about the qualities that you most appreciate in them. Or a particular time in which they supported you, and you want to say thank you for.

You can even get a whole pack of cards and envelopes and just put one good thing about them on eac. Then send them one by one through the post. Which is not only adorably sweet and romantic, but will also be a lovely treat for their ego as well.

Jewelry

Now, if you would prefer to let the gift do the talking rather than your own words you might want to consider getting your bae some jewelry. Jewelry is a great love token as its expensive, so it shows that you value them, and it made from precious metal which will stand the test of time. Just like your relationship.

Of course, picking of jewelry items for guys can be fraught with difficulties as it is important to get them an item that fits in with their personal style.

So ask yourself whether they wear rings, necklaces, or cufflinks before you spend all of your money on something. Another good test is to see if you can picture them wearing it? If so it’s probably a good bet.

Remember too, that chunky jewelry like the items available on Amazon is always more masculine. So is likely to be received better, and don’t forget; a little bling looks good on men and women alike.

Gift basketgift basket

If you are looking for a physical gift that says I love you, but that also doesn’t cost the Earth, then there is nothing better than a gift basket that you have put together yourself.

This works particularly well if you are in a long distance relationship as you can send it to your partner’s location and remind them of you and home.

But what thing should you include in such a basket? Well, first of all, think favorites. Pack it with their favorite candy, chips, and sodas. Then think about things that you can share together like reading a book , or a game that you can both play.

The Benefits Of Living Well

There are certain things that you can do in your life to help you get to a state of both physical and mental health which will benefit not just you, but the family that you have around you. If you have children, taking care of yourself ahead of everybody else should be the priority. While this sounds like quite a conflicting thing to think about, you need to consider yourself as their number one. Without their number one in full working order and available to cater for their wants and needs, they won’t be able to thrive as they need to.

Exercising for Physical Health

It’s hard to catch a break when you’ve got kids, especially to get out and do exercise that will count towards anything. You need to set yourself time, a routine and a goal to work towards in order to get yourself feeling as fit as you can. However, this isn’t necessarily the case all the time. There are certain things that you need to make provisions for, sure, but unless you have an amazing source of childcare and are willing to work that amount of time into your weekly lifestyle, it’s just not an option for the majority who are wanting to do it. This doesn’t mean that it’s completely unattainable. There are classes available for you to do with children in tow, no matter what age they are. Being able to keep up with them physically is something that counts for a lot when you’re a parent – not just for the fun factor, but for their safety and wellbeing in certain situations as well.

Exercising for Mental Health

Exercise doesn’t just have to be for your physical fitness – it can go a long way in helping cope with certain mental health conditions as well. There are sports and exercises that you can do that are crucial in helping you switch off from whatever exacerbates any illness you have; whether it’s stress about a situation, outside factors that contribute towards how you’re feeling or even just something that fills your mind with no idea as to why it’s doing it. A lot of people have commented on being able to “switch off” whilst running, which can be a great reason to take it up it for nothing else. This will help benefit your mood not just with yourself personally, but whatever is reflecting onto your children. The stability of your mental health is not just something that you go through on your own; those around you are all a part of it too, just as would be the case with physical health. Exercising is only one way to get yourself back on track, and should never be used as the only method if you think that it’s beyond a stage where exercise alone can help.

Eating Well – With Your Family

It’s often said that eating healthily when children are involved is impossible, but that’s not true. Children grow up with what they are accustomed to, and if you are introducing things including sugar, fat and that are easily accessible (such as drive thru food) into their diet, then of course they are going to expect it to be the norm and want it all the time. Most of the time, an aversion to fruit and vegetables is more fear of the unknown than a genuine dislike for what they’re being presented with. Getting into a good eating routine with your children doesn’t only benefit them, but will help you with your own healthy eating habits as well. There are things that you can use to help you along your fitness journey; there’s a huge buzz about idealshake for many reasons, with fitness supplements becoming the thing to turn to when stuck in a rut with your current plan. We have gotten to the stage of development and research where these products aren’t produced just for money-making profit anymore, and are showing proven benefits to being taken alongside a healthy diet and exercise.

Drinking More – Helping Your Family

Water is so abundant in our modern world that it’s being taken for granted completely. We cover up the thirst signals that our brains are sending to us and often mistake them for hunger signals instead, leading to overeating. This in turn adds on the pound that we don’t necessarily need or want. It can easily be avoided simply by drinking more. It is recommended that we drink eight ounces of water at least eight times a day, but this is dependent on the weather outside. If it’s hot or edging towards summer, aim to drink a bit more. There are certain water bottles, apps and aids that you can get to help remind you to drink and edge you on in your journey throughout the day. Although it seems like a task that should be second-nature to us, if you have gotten yourself into the habit of not drinking the required amount that you should per day, there is more chance that it will be harder for you to accomplish. This doesn’t mean that you should give up – the benefits of drinking more water go far beyond weight loss. Your brain is 80% water, and your focus and concentration has a lot to attribute to this fluid. Not only will you feel the benefits in being able to get to work mentally, but your energy levels should rise with the more water that is consumed. As it’s something that you don’t necessarily have to invest a lot of money in to try, as is the case with quite a lot of things these days, give it a go and see how you feel – what have you go to lose?
