Humidifiers can be beneficial for many situations, especially those living in the dry Utah climate. Dry indoor air can have harmful and irritating effects on the body. Humidifiers soothe dry skin and make it easier and more comfortable to breathe.
How Humidifiers Help
During the winter months, humidity levels can drop significantly low. This can cause chapped lips, irritation of the skin, mouth, throat, eyes, nose and nasal passages. Humidifiers not only ease dry skin but can protect your house. By keeping moisture in the air with a humidifier, you prevent furniture and wallpaper from cracking as well as drying out any wood in your home. Humidifiers also work well to warm your home which will save you a high utility bill.
Types of Humidifiers
There are two main types of humidifiers which include single room humidifiers and humidifiers that are connected to the HVAC system which cover more of your home. There are also cool mist and warm mist humidifiers which are both equally effective.
Warm Mist Humidifiers
Warm mist humidifiers use a heating component that boils water before releasing the mist into the air. This type of humidifier is also quieter than a cool mist humidifier.
Cool Mist Humidifiers
Cool mist humidifiers use a wick filter to absorb water while a fan blows the air through the filter, adding moisture into the air. Cool mist humidifiers are best used for children for safety reasons.
