Leisure is undoubtedly my preferred cup of tea; however, like most of my peers, work tends to dominate my time. Recently, my job assigned me to a 6-month temporary assignment to a sister town on the other side of the country. It was honestly a welcome surprise as I was in the mood for some new scenery. On top of that I was kinda intrigued about the weather since the city was reportedly situated in a temperate weather climate. The first few months were awesome since I arrived during the middle of spring when the weather was warm and right with winter having slipped into the shadows by then. Things were a different story come the summer, however, since the weather eventually began to sizzle. To deal with the changes, I sought various ways to cope, namely opening up as many windows around my dwelling as often as possible. Eventually getting fed up, I asked my next door neighbor who happened to be a heating and cooling technician for advice on what was becoming a sticky situation. Yet to have ever heard of it before, he first suggested a device called a hygrometer, which is used to help assess the degree of water moisture–a.k.a. humidity–in the indoor air. In addition to implementing that more higher-level, long-term measure, he recommended that I get a couple electric fans and set them up around my place. Although they wouldn’t do much for actually cooling the air, they would provide some much-needed relief in the ventilation department. Trusting of his advice, I got to work complying with each measure as soon as possible, acts for which I immediately began to witness the change-based levels of relief.
