With this interesting device you can control your personal weather by cooling the air temperature and also controlling humidity. Office furniture maker Herman Miller Inc. wants to let cooler heads prevail when it comes to the often-heated issue of how hot or cold offices should be. Herman Miller is launching a $300 desktop heating and cooling device that it hopes will become as much a part of office life as the desks, chairs and other office wares it has long been known for.
At 2.5 pounds (1.1 kg) and 10 inches high, it looks like a small humidifier. In company tests, starting with a surrounding air temperature of 72 degrees, the C2 raised the temperature within six inches by 40 degrees, and was able to cool it by eight degrees.

They say it's not the heat, but the humidity. Well fret not, because the versatile Timex TX5100 electronic thermometer/hygrometer displays both at the same time. The compact unit--which sits unobtrusively on a desktop, table, or shelf--sports a three-line, see-through LCD panel that simultaneously shows the time, indoor temperature, and indoor humidity in digits over 0.34 inches tall. As a result, the device is ideal for greenhouses, saunas, humidors, homes with expensive art collections, and a host of other indoor locations. The TX5100 also offers a number of comfort-related icons, including a happy face (for comfort) that appears when the temperature is between 68 and 78.8 degrees F and the humidity is between 40 and 70 percent. The wet icon, meanwhile, appears when the humidity is between 70 and 90 percent (as does the "not happy" face), while the dry icon shows up between 30 and 40 percent. Should the humidity dip or rise above the 20 to 90 percent measuring range, the TX5100 displays a Hi° or Lo° icon.

We often look for a simple indoor/outdoor thermometer and hygrometer (humidity monitor) for our house but they can be hard to find. You can often get any type of Weather Forecaster at a Sharper Image or other gadget store, but not a simple indoor outdoor thermoter. This Indoor/Outdoor thermoter can monitor a room's indoor atmosphere with this indoor thermometer and hygrometer from industry leader, La Crosse Technology.
The sleek device displays the temperature and current percentage of humidity in an easy-to-read digital format. After assessing the indoor weather station's information, users can adjust the household heating and cooling systems to reach a level of comfort or employ a humidifier, if need be. This is a great way to get your indoor weather under control before you go out.

We're always wondering about what the weather will hold for us outside of our homes, but what about inside your home? Indoor weather is a big factor in your health and well being. Are you currently having a dry indoor weather system because of living in the Northeast? Well one way to get the humidity up is with the Honeywell QuietCare 11 Gallon Console Humidifier with Air Washing Technology. It delivers an ultra-quiet performance and also cleans the air. We have an older humidifier and also the RabbitAir BioGP air filter system. It looks like the Honeywell QuietCare may do both jobs at once.
