How Dry Is It in Here? My Hygrometer Knows

In this video I explain how a simple device called a hygrometer tells me the humidity level wherever I take it. I've learned that my office at work runs very dry, well below the comfort zone, which for me is around 50 percent humidity. My house stays closer to this range, but drops when I have to run the heat or air conditioning more. This can be useful information to find your comfort zone and decide if you need to run a humidifier.
