In the Midwest region, the idea of humidity can come as a surprise! There’s nothing worse than trying to enjoy a day outdoors but constantly feeling the sticky heaviness of humid air. And if you’re a homeowner in the Midwest, you know humidity can be as much of an issue for your outdoor space as rain or snow.

Thankfully, investing in a Sunesta retractable awning could be the perfect solution to keep your backyard cool on even the hottest Midwest days!

But can humidity impact your retractable awning — possibly damaging it?

Strong and durable Sunesta awnings in the Midwest

A Rundown of Midwest Humidity

According to the University of Illinois, “In agricultural states, such as Illinois, large-scale fields of corn releasing water through their leaves boost humidity levels, making people feel hotter. One acre of corn can add between 3,000 to 4,000 gallons of water a day to the atmosphere.”

The Midwestern states with the highest humidity levels are:

  •  Iowa
  •  Michigan
  •  Indiana
  •  Wisconsin
  •  Ohio
