Balancing the climate in your home – an overview
Dry air in your bedroom? Constant damp in the bathroom? Too cold in your living room? Different factors influence the climate in the rooms of your home. Read on to find out how you can measure them and how to take the appropriate measures in order to optimise the climate in your home.
Air is the basis of our life. Every single day, we inhale and exhale an average of 20,000 times – this is equal to approx. 12,000 l air that we need on a daily basis. The quality of this air directly impacts our well-being and our performance.
The room climate is made up of humidity, air temperature and the degree of air pollution.
1. Measuring room climate
In order for you to attain the perfect climate in your home, you need to measure the current state of the air. Based on this information, you can take steps to improve the air quality in your home.
##The hygrometer measures humidity levels and air temperature
Perfect humidity levels and the right temperature are crucial when it comes to air quality. The latter is measured by a hygrometer via a sensor. For living areas and offices, a relative humidity level of 40% to 60% is perceived as pleasant and recommended. Particularly in your bedroom, it is these values that will noticeably improve your quality of sleep.

##The weather station measures the climate indoors and outdoors
Weather stations have the features of hygrometers and thermometers: They measure both indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity levels . In addition to this, they also measure meteorological values, such as precipitation or air pressure. Based on this, they produce a weather forecast.
Today's weather stations differentiate each other by ever-changing, additional features. The following model by Netatmos, for example, monitors the quality of the air in the room and checks CO2 levels. It also works with an app that reminds you when to let in some fresh air.

2. Optimising the room climate
Adjust the various components of the indoor air by using a range of different devices. This is how you can optimise the climate in your home.
##Humidifiers for dry air
To counter-balance the dry climate in rooms on those colder days, there are three different ways you can humidify your home: evaporators, ultrasound nebulisers, and vaporisors. Find out more on this topic in the following report (in German).

Air dehumidifier when the air in your home is too humid
On the ground floor, in laundry rooms or in buildings close to bodies of water, humidity tends to be particularly high. If the air in your home is too humid, it may result in mould growth but also in asthmatic conditions, allergies, and infections. This can be prevented by using an air dehumidifier. Air dehumidifiers extract excess humidity from the air, collect the water in a tank or drain it off straight away.

##Air purifier for polluted air
It's a fact that the air inside our homes often tends to be more polluted than the air outside. - It often contains fine dust, pollen, unpleasant odours and germs. It's worth using an air purifier to clean the air in your home. Air purifiers filter the air with efficient activated carbon filters. With this process, the air in your home is sucked into the device, conducted through filters that clean it and then emitted back into the room. Make the air in your rooms clean and healthy and discover our air purifiers!
