How does a humidistat sense humidity?
A humidistat senses humidity, thermostat temperature.
With a temp/rh probe barring that take a humidistat and turn dial when it clicks from closing circuit note the setting and that is humidity surrounding humidistat
A humidistat is a device used to control the operation of space conditioning systems such as air conditioners, dehumidifiers and humidifiers. When used with an air conditioner, for example, the humidistat cycles the unit on and off based on humidity rather than temperature as provided with a regular thermostat. A humidistat set at 70 percent relative humidity, for instance, will cycle the air conditioner on when relative humidity reaches 70 percent or above, even if… Read More
A humidistat. (Yes, you can buy them in stores ... try home improvement centers, pet store or gardening centers.)
An electronic humidistat works by measuring capacitance of an air gap capacitor, or the resistance of hygroscopic salt, which absorbs water from the air. When measuring humidity against a set point, a power amplifier operates a relay. In the capacitance type of sensor, the dielectric is the air in between two electrodes. The dielectric value, and therefore capacitance, will change according to the amount of water vapor contained in air. A Mechanical Humidistat uses a… Read More
To answer your question as it is written: It has no Effect on the setting of the thermostat. If the stat is set at 72* and you add humidity, the stat is still set at 72*. Assuming you are really asking what the reaction of the stat will be, there will be no reaction. Humidity is latent heat measured by a humidistat, a thermostat can only measure and react to changes in sensible heat.
If a room has a high rate of humidity it will show condensation on the windows or walls, it may even be growing some mold on the walls. But if you have any doubt,get a dehumidifier or at least a humidistat to see
The difference is the relay operation.Normally opened or normally closed.If you add an external spdt relay,you could have a humidistat/dehumidistat.
Is a humidity control such as a thermidistat necessary with a 13 SEER air conditioner in an 1800 square foot 1 story home in Florida?
The first question you need to answer this is are you occupying the home year round? If you are NO. If you are a snowbird, then you should have a Humidistat installed to keep the moisture level down as to not grow mold. If you are there year round, then normal use of your A/C will keep the humidity at acceptable levels.
Not sure how it works, but it seems that you need to raise the humidistat to make the heat go on. Just raising the thermostat doesn't turn on the heater. Type your answer here...
Barometer Humidistat - also known as hygrostat
I bought mine from a shop reptile shop but you can get them off of the internet
What is the best temperature to set your air conditioner thermostat on when vacating the house for 6 months in the summer to avoid mildew?
Depends on where you live. From personal experience in a coastal environment, the main consideration is HUMIDITY rather than TEMPERATURE. Mold and mildew depend upon moisture to live and grow. Find out what the humidity level in your area is likely to be during that six-month period and set the thermostat to keep humidity below 50%. Doesn't have to be much below. Buy a decent humidistat (much like a thermometer) to indicate what your moisture… Read More
Each area of the country has different climate problems, but as a "rule of thumb" fogging is caused by the moisture level in your home, reducing your humidifier level should help, but the level of humidity helps you feel warm in the colder months so don't reduce the level too much. Your humidistat will have suggested levels for the average temperature outside. These are estimates and takes a little trial and error for your particular… Read More
My dehumidistat says to set the temperature to 70 degrees.
An electronic humidistat works by measuring capacitance of an air gap capacitor. In this type of sensor, as air flows in between two electrodes, the capacitance between two plates will change according to the RH contained in air.
Because their sense of smell becomes more sensitive when humidity is increased. They lick their noses to help them smell better.
No you don't need the humidstat on as this defeats the purpose of the AC doing its work.
System could have a humidistat installed...
why is relative humidity more useful than humidity?
Using your sense of touch. For example the temperature of the air, or the humidity, or the movement of the wind. These sensory indications compose the 'feel' of the air around us.
Does this sentence make sense The fear had dissipated but the deafening silence still lingered in the vague afternoon humidity?
The sentence, " The fear had dissipated but the deafening silence still lingered in the vague afternoon humidity," is a logical, though wordy, sentence. There should however, be a comma between "dissipated" and "but."
A day with low humidity Low humidity. High humidity will prevent sweat from evaporating and hence make you feel warmer.
The humidity is filtered out by a humidity control system.
A small inexpensive instrument for measuring humidity is called a Hygrometer (sometimes they are also called relative humidity indicator or humidity sensor). These instruments measure humidity.
Relative humidity expresses a percentage of humidity in the air to the maximum amount of humidity that could be in the air. For example: when the temperature rises the air will be able to hold much more humidity so the relative humidity will drop.
Humidity is a condition of a gas, you add moisture to a gas to increase it's humidity and dry it to reduce the humidity when air gets to 100% humidity it may rain?
Humidity refers to the degree of wetness of the atmosphere. By using a humidity gauge or sling psychometer, humidity in the backyard can be measured.
"its not the heat , its the humidity" usually means it is the the humidity that cools your body temperature down .
There is no humidity on Jupiter. This is because there is no water on the planet which is needed to produce humidity.
Humidity is water vapor. An increase or decrease in humidity is physical.
No! Humidity comes from vaporized water. Mars has no water, meaning there is no humidity
it has no humidity
Relative humidity is a ratio for determining if water vapor is in the air. Absolute humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air.
What is humidity What is the name of the instrument that measures it Which is more comfortable a day with high humidity or with low humidity?
Humidity is dampness in the air. The intrument that measures it is a hygrometer, and a day with low humidity is more comfortable because its easier to breath
The average humidity on the moon is about 13 grams. The humidity on the moon is not affected by the temperature.
yes when the temperature is high the humidity decreases and when temperature is low the humidity increases.
The relative humidity can increase it by letting more water into the air. The relative humidity can hold more than regular humidity.
Relative humidity is percentage of water relative to how much air can hold if saturated Absolute humidity is actual amount of moisture in the air
Relative Humidity is measured with a Hygrometer Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air. On hot days, when it feels sticky, the humidity would then be high.
There are several ways of measuring humidity: Absolute humidity is measured in [ML-3] usually grams per cubic metre. Relative humidity and specific humidity are both pure ratios and so have no units.
this is the current humidity
no! it doesn't have an atmosphere to contain humidity.
there is no affect of humidity by its temperature!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Humidity is related to temperature.
there is no humidity due to no water.
Relative humidity is measured in %.
precipitation is a component of humidity
