If your skin feels tight and you have a scratch in your throat, it might be time for a humidifier.
Your skin and sinuses are very sensitive to dry air, especially in fall and winter. You need plenty of moisture to ensure your skin stays soft and your sinuses are able to do their job. A humidifier is an easy way to help.
The heat dries out the air in the room and because cold air absorbs less moisture than warm air, airing out a room makes it even drier. A humidifier becomes a useful purchase once the relative humidity level in indoor spaces drops below 40 percent or you have chapped lips or dry eyes. It is very easy to control the relative humidity level using a hygrometer.
What to note when restarting or purchasing an appliance
It is important to thoroughly clean your humidifier before putting it back into operation. That means: Descale the water base and water tank and use a cleaning brush to remove any residue. Now is the time to replace any accessories such as the demineralization cartridge or the Ionic Silver Stick®, which keeps the water clean longer.
We recommend an overview of the different humidifier systems before making a purchase: There are Air Washer, Evaporator, Ultrasonic, Steamer and HYBRID systems. These systems all humidify the air in their own way.
Selecting the system that fits your needs
An Air Washer and Evaporator system suction in the air and humidify it using humidification discs or evaporator mats which rotate through the water base. This process washes dust and hair out of the air. No mist is visible in either of these systems because the water evaporates. They are especially recommended for areas with hard water.
In a Humidifier Ultrasonic system, a membrane uses high-frequency vibrations to turn water into a micro-fine mist. The mist that comes out humidifies the air very efficiently – a relief for your throat and mouth. Softened water should be used for this system or the demineralization cartridge should be replaced regularly.
Regardless of the water quality, a Steamer system humidifies the air hygienically. It brings the water to a boil and the resulting steam is free of bacteria and lime scale. Healthy room humidity is guaranteed – anytime, anywhere.
Finally, a HYBRID system provides everything you could want for air treatment – even for those suffering from allergies. It humidifies the air using an evaporator mat while simultaneously cleaning it using the HEPA and active carbon filters.
Natural comfortable climate
Air that is optimally humidified is not just a balm for dry mucous membranes. It also reduces susceptibility to cold and flu, prevents the build up of electrostatic charges, such as in hair, and it is also provides moisture control for your favorite wood articles.
