Humidifier Buying Advice
You must pay attention to these points when buying humidifier.
*** Humidifiers are particularly good for allergy sufferers***
The atomizers with ultrasound prove to be particularly pleasant for allergy sufferers in many a humidifier test. It is particularly practical that they moisturize the air throughout and thus create a pleasant and soothing climate. This atomizer type is therefore the best humidifier for allergy sufferers.
For example, we recommend the Medisana AH 660 air humidifier, which also has a filter that removes the dust from the air.
***Bedroom or living room? Humidifiers are available for different rooms.***
A humidifier that is in the living area should be as quiet as possible.
A humidifier for the bedroom must have two important factors: It must be quiet and not equipped with a bright display.
If you find it hard to sleep in the evening, you should opt for an atomizer humidifier. A drop of lavender or lemon balm oil can often work wonders. The desired humidifier flavor can be obtained, for example, from pharmacies and often also drugstores. An automatic shut-off via a timer completes the humidifier for the bedroom perfectly.
A humidifier for the office or the living room, however, may well work with light, but it is also recommended to look for a quiet model in a room humidifier test. Here is a look at the humidifier test winner quite worthwhile. If you save at the wrong end, you'll probably be annoyed by a device that's too loud (especially if it's near your desk or couch).
A nebulizer is only recommended if it has a sensor that responds when the room air is too humid and then turns off or down regulates itself. Otherwise, the evaporator is the better choice, since the room air in these devices usually never gets too wet and thus in the long term no damage to electrical equipment must be feared. A very good humidifier with evaporator is for example the Philips Humidifier HU5930 /10.
***Tank volume and running time should be in good ratio***
In our humidifier comparison, you can see very well how much volume the water tank of each model has and how many hours the humidifier can operate with it. Most humidifiers in one or the other test will run for between 10 and 20 hours.
The tank volume usually varies between 1/2 and 2 gallons.
Whether you decide for a large or small humidifier depends on the usage. For the nights in the bedroom, the small humidifier is usually sufficient. On the other hand, if you spend the whole day in the office, then it should be a big humidifier, which ideally provides good air before your actual working hours.
***Humidification units should match the room size***
The humidifier should be adjusted to the size of the room.
If you want to humidify the air sufficiently, you should follow the recommendations of the brands or manufacturers. Most humidifiers are designed for rooms with a room size between 200 and 400 square feed.
It is important to pay attention to the cubic meter information. Some of these differ considerably from one manufacturer to another. While some room humidifiers are only designed for rooms up to 900 sq ft, other models create more than 200 m³.
