My office building was built in the 70s and the internal workings are abysmal. Once the heat goes on, it stays on - no matter that we are having no winter this year. It's hot and dry. When I come out of the building at night, I feel like a goldfish that's been oxygen deprived.
I considered buying a humidifier to make my little space bearable and, instead, got Reggie. I look at it the same way as I view my lawn. I can't abide waste. I am covering my lawn with raised beds, and my humidifier is a Betta.
