I don’t know who ever came up with the statement that the heat is different 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.
The only good thing about heat without humidity is that it is easier to cool. The big problem 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 learned this quickly when we moved to Albuquerque, NM. We lived in the south all our lives, but we always dealt with high temperatures and high humidity. There wasn’t a day went by when we didn’t have torrential downpours in the late afternoon or evening. Albuquerque, NM doesn’t have a problem with humidity and there is very little rain. In Albuquerque, NM, you experience desert-like conditions. When we first moved to Albuquerque, we brought our window air conditioning units with it. They did not prepare us for the total lack of humidity, and to purchase a house that had what my grandfather called a swamp cooler to cool the house. In order to stay comfortable in our home, we had to have an air conditioning system that would add humidity back to the air. It was laughable for my husband and me when we found this out. For years, I had asthma and allergies that had a lot to do with the humidity. All I had to do was move to Albuquerque, NM, and all my health issues were forgotten.
