I don’t think 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, and when you have un-even 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 pressing 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, & your lungs burn, then my hubby & I l received this abruptly when all of us moved to Albuquerque, NM. The people I was with and I lived in the south all our lives, however all of us constantly dealt with high un-even temperatures & high humidity. There wasn’t a afternoon went by when all of us didn’t have torrential downpours in the late afternoon or evening, then albuquerque, NM doesn’t have a problem with humidity & there is undoubtedly little rain, but in Albuquerque, NM, you experience desert-like conditions. When all of us first moved to Albuquerque, all of us brought our window air conditioner units with it. They did not prepare us for the total lack of humidity, & to purchase a beach house that had what my Grandpa called a swamp cooler to cool the house. In order to stay comfortable in our home, all of us had to have an air conditioner method that would add humidity back to the air. It was laughable for my hubby & myself and others when all of us found this out; For years, I had asthma & pollen irritations that had a lot to do with the humidity. All I had to do was transport to Albuquerque, NM, & all my health troubles were forgotten.
