Common Questions About Room Humidifiers

If you are familiar with room humidifiers, you may know some great things about these devices and all of the benefits that come with owning one. But can whole room humidifiers really help you? We’ve compiled some of the most common questions asked about whole room humidifiers to help you figure out just that.

Will the moisture affect electronics? This is a great question because it’s a common and valid concern among people thinking about buying a humidifier. Keep in mind that certain types of humidifiers can create condensation so you’ll want to keep your electronics away from whole room humidifiers to prevent condensation from reaching your phone, etc.

Does it really get the entire room? There are some humidifiers that can spread moisture throughout larger spaces, like a cool mist humidifier, then there are others, like a warm mist humidifier, which are limited in their reach. Nonetheless, you can get benefits from whichever room humidifier you choose.

What if I live in humid climate? Think about what happens indoors in a humid climate; your air conditioning is blasting and cooling your home. As this happens, your air is drying out and can cause dry, scratchy throat. If this sounds like you, you would definitely benefit from a humidifier.

Does it take a lot of work to maintain? Cool mist humidifiers need to be cleaned more often than warm mist humidifiers (just about every day) because they’re more prone to bacteria build up in the water tank. But when it comes to actual cleaning and disinfecting, it’s more a matter of discipline than labor. Cleaning is easy: just use a soft-bristled brush and mild cleanser to scrub away any build up and rinse thoroughly.

What’s the right humidity level? If you set it too high, you’re asking for mold; too low and your cold symptoms can flourish. Find a happy medium and keep humidity levels between 45% and 50%. Note: A hygrometer will be your best friend when owning room humidifiers.
