This product provides relief from: Dust Mites, Mold & Mildew
Knowing the relative humidity in your home is important in controlling dust mites and molds, plus other allergy and asthma inducers that thrive in warm, moist settings. To keep dust mite and mold populations from multiplying, relative humidity should be in the range of 40-50% in hot, humid months, but thankfully tends to fall lower in cold, dryer months. The AcuRite® Digital Indoor Humidity & Temperature Monitor accurately lets you know at a glance what your relative humidity is, plus whether its high, low or ideal, and whether its trending higher, lower or remaining steady. The AcuRite monitor also displays temperature, and has many other nice features, including a large digital display and low battery indicator light. Available in Black or Blue. 1-Year Manufacturer's Limited Warranty.
- When the relative humidity level in your home drops below 50%, dust mites slow down.
- Humidity under 40% actually kills and eliminates dust mites altogether because it's too dry for them to survive (except in your bed where it's always warm and humid due to your body, which is why bed encasings are so critical).
- If your humidity level is very high, you may need to additionally consider a dehumidifier.
- Check humidity and temperature at a glance with AcuRite's large, clear digital display
- Indoor Relative Humidity readings boldly display as a percent
- Temperature readings displayed in your choice of °F or °C
- See fluctuations, as this gauge also displays high/low humidity and temperature for the past 24 hours
- Easily check indoor comfort level (humidity in relation to temperature) -- High, OK, or Low -- shown within the graphic display of a house
- Finding a good spot for this gauge is easy because it:
- has a built-in magnet or stands alone
- measures only 3.06"H x 2.48"W x 1.29"D
- Requires only 1 AA alkaline battery – not included, but we offer batteries separately for your convenience
- Comes with instructions
