Humidity


Proper ventilation helps avoiding mold! This apps helps to decide if airing makes sense by calculating the expected relative humidity after ventilation. You can use this app to determine if you should open your windows for airing or not.

It calculates the expected relative humidity at a temperature ("inside"), if the temperature and humidity is at given values ("outside").

If the humidity is below 65% the number is shown in green, otherwise red. Humidity should be less than 65% to prevent mold growth.

It gives you a good approximation for the expected humidity after ventilation at the assumption that the air is completely exchanged.
An ideal model is assumed, you can think of a bottle full of air: the air in the bottle has a certain temperature and relative humidity (labeled "outside" in this app), if you now change the temperature of the air in the bottle, the relative humidity will change to a new level (labeled "inside").

Temperature unit °C or °F can be set in Settings menu screens.

Exactly what I was looking for. I I didn't realize that. That a 10 degree drop in temperature. Resulted in 20 point jump in relative humidity. I guess I'm keeping the windows closed.

Nearly perfect Need to know if humidity outside is less than humidity inside. If less and temp reasonable than open windows, if more just keep AC on. Simple, quick. Right now need to use full keyboard input, hopefully will change to simpler time update type of input.

On behalf of the developer Samsung galaxy S3 doesnt have a humidity sensor or temperature sensor.. very few devices have them. So please blame your device, not the app. It works fine
