Boiler models produce warm mist for added comfort during cold winter months. A gentle boiling process traps impurities and releases clean warm vapor into the air. This technology is not recommended for a child's room due to the high water temperatures.
Ultrasonic humidifiers produce micro-fine mist that quickly disperses humidity into a room. A transducer vibrates water at ultrasonic speed to break it down, producing a clean, refreshing mist. The water molecules in the mist are extremely small, about one micron in diameter, so the mist is almost immediately absorbed into the air. Since they do not use a fan, ultrasonic humidifiers are whisper quiet. They can produce both warm and cool mist.
Cleaning: All humidifiers should be cleaned periodically to keep the mechanisms working well. Read your product manual for the recommended cleaning procedures. Also, don't let water stand in the tank for long periods when not running, as this will help avoid the growth of molds and bacteria.
Humidistat: A humidity thermostat measures the moisture in the air. Some models automatically disperse moisture to achieve the programmed humidity level setting you select.
Adjustable mist: Most humidifiers offer adjustable mist settings from low to high, so you can customize how much mist they produce.
Timers: More advanced models feature timers that allow you to set how long you want the humidifier to run and then automatically shut off.
Auto shut-off when empty: As a safety feature, better humidifiers will automatically shut off when the water tank is empty.
Night lights: Look for convenient on/off lights that add convenience in the bedroom at night.
