Humidifiers for living areas
Ideal humidity and temperature in your home
For many of us, our living room is our main place to relax. It’s where we unwind in the evenings. To completely de-stress, we need a soothing atmosphere that makes us feel good all round.
Room climate and temperature are important aspects.
The optimal temperature for living rooms is 20°C and the recommended humidity is between 40 and 60%. But it’s not always easy to maintain these ideal conditions. And the same applies to the other living areas in your home. Particularly the rooms where you spend a lot of time during the day.
For example, dining rooms or lived-in bedrooms.
Too moist, too dry: two different problems
Both very high and very low humidity over a long period are equally bad news. Especially when it’s cold outside, we like to snuggle down at home in cosy rooms. But heating draws moisture from the room and dries out the air. Hot summer days can have the same effect.
Over time, stuffy, overheated air isn’t just uncomfortable, it can also cause serious problems. At a humidity lower than 40%, you can suffer from irritation of the eyes, skin and mucous membranes.
At the other end of the scale, humidity over 60% encourages mould. That can damage not only the fabric of your house, but also your health.
What causes dry air in living areas?
What exactly do we mean by dry air? Surely it’s good when it’s raining or snowing outside to be nice and dry inside? The clear answer is no! Of course you don’t want tropical conditions in your home. But very dry air is just as unpleasant. As in many areas of life, somewhere in the middle is just right. Air humidity describes the proportion of water vapour in the air. In addition to nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide and other gases, air also contains water vapour. A little-known fact is that the water vapour content depends partly on air pressure and temperature: The warmer the air, the more water it can absorb. Conversely, cold air stores less water and is drier. When dry air heats up due to underfloor or other heating, it doesn’t automatically pick up more moisture. Obviously, if no moisture is available in the room, the air can’t absorb any. This is what creates warm yet dry air in heated rooms.
Natural, easy living
Somewhere to kick back, let your thoughts run free and enjoy your own company. Or a place to spend precious time with your loved ones. Your living room should be a feel-good zone.
Plants can create a beautiful interior and also improve indoor air. An Airwasher is an especially effective way to boost air quality. It ensures healthy humidity and filters harmful substances out of the air so you benefit from natural freshness in your living areas.
Mood-enhancing fragrances for your living room
Lovely fragrances can also make you feel good. Our natural essential oils make every breath a pleasure. Choose grapefruit-sandalwood, orange or lavender for a relaxing, calming atmosphere. Our range contains fragrances for a holiday vibe, gentle relaxation, an energy boost or extra motivation. Simply add them to your Airwasher for an even better room climate.
Here’s how the Venta principle works
A fan directs the ambient air into the water-filled Airwasher, where it travels through specially arrayed disk stacks. Hygienically clean air evaporates from the disk surfaces into the room. Simultaneously, the stacks trap harmful substances such as dust or pollen, which are then washed off in the water and collected in the Airwasher.
