You often wake your mouth dry and pasty, with the eyes that sting and the skin that pulls? Maybe the air in your room is too dry. A consequence of modern heating systems is not that uncomfortable: a dry air favours respiratory diseases, especially in children, and it dries the skin and the mucous membranes. Even green plants and wooden furniture can be inconvenienced by this lack of moisture!
The easiest and most effective solution to this problem is to use a humidifier, especially during the winter months.
The air humidifier, instructions for use
Do I need it?
The humidifiers are usually sold with a sensor or sensor, which measure the humidity of a room. The ideal rate is 50 to 60%. If it is less than 50%, the humidifier is made for you!
An excess of static electricity can also be a sign of dry air.
Similarly, if you or your children are prone to colds and respiratory infections (asthma for example), the humidifier will be useful and will improve your comfort both at night and during the day.
How does it work?
The humidifier diffuses a cold, sterile vapour, which improves the humidity level of the ambient air in a totally healthy way.
Which one to choose?
The main criterion of choice concerns the size of the part to be treated. The standard models are suitable for rooms of 20 to 50 m² on average.
There are portable humidifiers, practical since they follow you from room to room, but are reserved for small areas.
Pure Enrichment Humidifier is the best choice for your room. Even if the sound level is low, it is better to choose a totally silent device if it is intended for a room.
Options can be offered. The most interesting is probably the diffuser of essential oils, which can be very beneficial to fight against winter diseases. The presence of a humidistat helps to stabilize the humidity level, while an ionizer is recommended for people suffering from headaches and dizziness. Automatic unloading can also be convenient.
Namely, there are models specifically designed for babies’ chambers, which work by ultrasound and are therefore more secure.
Where to install it?
For greater efficiency, it is advisable to install the humidifier in the center of the room so that the steam spreads evenly.
It may well be placed directly on the floor, but it should not be too close to furniture and walls. The released moisture may in fact deteriorate these.
Warning! The humidifier should not be confused with the purifier. The latter cleans the air, but does not moisten it. It is particularly recommended for people suffering from allergies, since it removes the atmosphere of a dwelling from the most microscopic polluting particles (smoke, dust mites, dust …)
Where to buy?
Pharmacies and drug store generally offer an interesting choice, and you will benefit from the advice of professionals to choose the device that is best for you.
There are also more and more humidifiers in the shops and boutiques in domestic appliance lines at competitive prices.
