A humidifier has a pretty straightforward function. It makes the air in a room or space more humid by releasing water vapor or mist into the air. Humidifiers are commonly used to prevent air from becoming too dry and reduce allergy and asthma symptoms. Here’s a quick overview of the two different types of humidifiers:
A whole-home humidifier is an appliance that is installed into your home’s HVAC system to provide humidity control to every room in the house. The humidifier works by drawing in dry air from the home, passing it through a humidifying filter, and then returning the moist air back into the home. A whole-home humidifier needs to be connected to a water line to draw moisture, but it does not consume very much water. The whole home humidifier can be adjusted to provide the desired humidity level in the entire home.
A portable humidifier is a device designed to raise the level of humidity in a single room or a small area. It is typically a small, self-contained unit that can be moved from room to room. Portable humidifiers may come with a variety of features, such as adjustable humidity levels, water tanks, and filter systems.
While portable humidifiers can be effective for individual rooms, you can get the most bang for your buck with a whole home humidifier. Here are some of the benefits you’ll enjoy:
A whole-home humidifier improves indoor air quality by maintaining a balanced level of humidity in the air. This helps to reduce the number of allergens, dust, and other irritants in the air that can trigger allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues. It also helps to reduce static electricity and makes the air feel more comfortable.
A more balanced level of moisture in your indoor air will reduce airborne particulate matter like dust, pet dander, dirt, mold, and mildew. These particles are all known triggers of allergy and asthma symptoms.
More moisture in the air means less itchy, dry skin, and less static electricity to further aggravate it.
