Humidification for Health and Comfort
People inside of any building will benefit from proper humidification, and the cost to humidify a building is easily offset by having occupants that are healthy, comfortable and productive.
Cost per sick day
Assume that the average salary plus benefits ranges between $45k to $70k per year.
The average lost salary per sick day is between $172 and $267, plus the loss in productivity.
Cost for humidification
Humidification load per person:
15 CFM/person ventilation
0°F - 50% RH conditioned to 72°F - 35% RH
0.45 lbs/hr x 2000 hrs = 900 lbs/year
Humidification cost per person:
Average capacity: 3 lbs/kWh
Average cost of electrical: $0.10 / kWh
900 ÷ 3 lbs/kw x $0.10 = $30.00/person per year ($0.08 per day)
Based on 120-150 sq. ft. of humidification per person.
