A humidifier can help many situations. There are several types to choose from, but all of them result in more comfortable air. Small humidifiers are ideal for bedrooms and small sitting rooms or offices, while larger models work well in great rooms, family rooms and large living spaces. Each model lists the area of space it is able to adequately humidify. These home electronic devices are useful in a number of situations.
One type of humidifier to consider is ultrasonic. These use ultrasonic waves to create a mist of air that permeates the air of the room. This humidity helps eliminate static electricity and introduces needed moisture into skin, hair and nails, which is often lost in dry homes. Using heaters or central heating units can often make air dry, but ultrasonic humidifiers can reintroduce needed moisture into the environment. Look for ultrasonic models by Holmes and others.
Digital humidifiers allow users to precisely control how much moisture is introduced into the room or home. These are very useful for people suffering with allergies or sinus problems. These units sometimes have timers, so it is easy to make sure it is shut off when not needed, and ready to go when it is necessary. These features save water as well as power. Find digital models by Bionaire and more.
Another option is warm/cool mist humidifiers. Some medications, such as menthol, can be added to a warm air humidifier. Cool mist versions are refreshing and soothing. Some models are designed to produce only warm humidity, while others emit cool mist. Models are also available to produce either warm or cool mist as needed. Look for units by Sharper Image and others. Many of these models have a sleek, elegant design, making them attractive as well as useful.
Kids humidifiers are also available. These models are designed to look fun and inviting, encouraging kids to remember to tell mom or dad to turn it on each night. Look for fun animals and shapes to match the décor in any child's room. These are available by Kidsline and others.
