389Relative Humidity Altitude Adjustment
- Oct 9, 2008Cut the heat bill in half by maintaining 50% RH.
It takes twice the energy to heat moist air as is required to heat dry
air at 50% RH. Dry air that escapes cost only half the cost of moist
air that escapes the house.
All houses leak when the door opens for egress. Some houses leak like
an air filter with the door closed.
Cut the heat bill in half if the room air is kept at 50% RH.
The reason no one ever told you this is because, with conventional set
point swinging temperature, the RH can not be controlled. Only the
steady heat of a corn stove can control room RH. The corn stove must be
run steadily for several days, up to two weeks, to stabalize the room
moisture at the desired per cent relative humidity.
And now you know why a corn stove will use so much fuel the first two
weeks running at a warmer temperature. The corn stove may use as much
fuel during damp warm weather as during cold dry weather. Thusly the
frozen dry Northern locations save more energy than the southern damp
locations. Frozen air is dry air.
