Features of humidifiers that you need to know

In order not to be mistaken and choose the best air humidifier for an apartment or for a child's room, you need to know about the advantages and disadvantages of different types of humidifiers.

Ultrasonic humidifiers

The main problem that the owner of such a device may face is the formation of a white bloom. Output - use distilled or purified water (filter with reverse osmosis).

Advanced models are equipped with replaceable filters. However, sometimes they do not save. With excessive water hardness in the faucet (value above 21 dH), it is better to either abandon ultrasonic devices in favor of steam or traditional humidification, or use only distilled water, which can be bought quite cheaply in an automobile shop.

You can find out what water you have in the water utility or use test strips for aquariums.

Steam humidifiers

The most effective in terms of increasing humidity (almost up to 100%), but:

  1. Control is required. Waterlogging (above 65-70%) is good for plants, but not for people and furniture. In aid of a hygrostat or weather station;
  2. Hot steam. At the exit, it is already cooling down, but it can be dangerous for children. But the humidifier can be used as an inhaler;
  3. Increased energy consumption. Evaporates water according to the principle of an electric kettle.

"Air Wash" with natural moisture

They are the most economical and complemented by the air purification function. But wait for a quick effect and the creation of high humidity (like steam) is not worth it. As well as superfine purification. But no plaque and waterlogging.

Few of the features:

Built-in hygrostat

You need to understand that his testimony is approximate and displays the humidity of the air in the immediate vicinity of the humidifier. Do you want more accurate and for the whole room? Then you need a separate device.


No need to wait for some tangible effect. This is not a Chizhevsky chandelier, it is small and simple. Little dilutes a large number of positive ions with negative ones for more comfortable breathing.

Choose the humidifier that best suits your conditions, and then the purchase will be successful!
