I don’t think who ever came up with the statement that the heat is unusual because it’s a dry heat, so you don’t mind it so much; was crazy, when you have temperatures in the nineties or upper eighties, it is hot, with or without humidity, however the only good thing about heat without humidity is that it is easier to cool.
The immense concern with heat without humidity is that if you don’t add humidity to the inside, you end up with a lot of static electricity, and your lungs burn, my husband and I l acquired this quickly when the two of us moved to Albuquerque, NM.
The two of us lived in the south all our lives, but the two of us regularly dealt with high temperatures and high humidity. There wasn’t a day went by when the two of us didn’t have torrential downpours in the late day or evening, and albuquerque, NM doesn’t have a concern with humidity and there is legitimately little rain, and in Albuquerque, NM, you experience desert-like conditions. When the two of us first moved to Albuquerque, the two of us brought our window a/c units with it. They did not prepare us for the total lack of humidity, and to purchase a house that had what our Grandpa called a swamp cooler to cool the house. In order to stay comfortable in our home, the two of us had to have an a/c method that would add humidity back to the air. It was laughable for our husband and me when the two of us found this out! For years, I had asthma and dust sensitivities that had a lot to do with the humidity. All I had to do was move to Albuquerque, NM, and all our health troubles were forgotten.
