During the dry and rusty months you may really feel the pangs, even when you are seated inside your room. Under such conditions wouldn't it be better to have a humidifier ready at hand to get you comfortable in no time? Well the answer is simple, if you take the care of doing a little bit of research on the matter. With the help of these machines we can easily increase the humidity of our rooms, and at times they may be connected to the HVAC systems of our rooms to make it even cozier than before.


Types of Humidifiers

The most popular humidifiers are the evaporative ones and they constitute of three basic portions, which may be noted as the reservoir, a wick and a fan. The basic purpose of the reservoir is to contain the water, prior to action and is present in almost every other humidifier. With the help of the wick, which acts as a filter, the water from the reservoir is absorbed and then evaporated according to the relative humidity factor. The fan present by the wick's side helps in the process of evaporation by blowing in air into the wick.

Other type of humidifiers includes the vaporizer, impeller humidifier and ultrasonic humidifier, each having their own humidity delivering process. In case of the vaporizer boiling water is evaporated producing steam and humidity together, whereas the impeller humidifier breaks the water droplets through diffuser and produces a warm mist of humid air. In the final process the water droplets are sent out through ultrasonic vibrations, which set out a cool ambience, just like the previous one.


Precautions Regarding Humidifiers

Making use of humidifiers at home can be useful and problematic at the same time, as the gadget may lead to unnecessary growth of mold and dust mites in our rooms. For this reason, the humidifier should always be kept under control of 30% to 50% of relative humidity. The recent Microban technology seems to have cured this problem, by reducing the growth of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms within.

In case of the impeller humidifier, it has been reported by many people that there is a formation of white dust, which is attracted by static electricity and could be a potential threat to your lungs.

However, many claim that the white dust is intentionally generated, to cancel out the effects of the unwanted growths of the harmful microorganisms back at your home. They seem to do this by attaching themselves with these microorganisms, by being negatively charged, and then purifying the air.


Your Opinion

Thus, it is quite clear as to the different forms of humidifier that are available in the market. Now it remains up to you, to choose the proper humidifier for yourself, considering the advantages they will provide you with. Getting the best humidifier, to maintain the humidity properly is not easy and you might want to consult some of the specialists in the matter, before going ahead to buy one for yourself.
