What is dry heat?



  1. 0 Votes

    “Dry Heat” is a term used when the temperature outside is hot, but there is very little humidity in the air. People tend to prefer dry heat, because although it is hot, you are unlikely to sweat as much as if was very humid out.

    If you need help conceptualizing, dry heat is like a dessert, while “wet heat” (the opposite isn’t actually called wet heat, I don’t know if there is a term for it other than humidity) is like a rainforest. Or Dry heat is like a sauna, and humidity is like a steam room.

    Dry heat can withstand higher temperatures and still not feel as hot as the same temperature in humid conditions.  The air is lighter, whereas with humidity the air is heavier.
