HVAC and Outdoor Humidity Sensors


HVAC systems often rely on outdoor relative humidity measurements, or calculated parameters based on humidity, to optimize the energy efficiency of the cooling equipment. Changing weather conditions can make measuring outdoor humidity a challenge, so selecting the right sensor is essential to the performance of a building’s HVAC system.  If the outdoor humidity sensor is inaccurate, building controls, energy efficiency, and human comfort are sub-optimized.

In relation to this, Vaisala have produced a newsletter exploring the subject further. The newsletter can be accessed here.
