A humidifier replenishes moisture in the air. It increases the level of humidity in a said room area by emitting water vapour in the air. Humidifiers are considered to be an excellent addition in hot and dry areas or in indoor areas that are artificially heated.
When a person is exposed to low humidity levels, his or her hydration level will be reduced and many negative bodily symptoms either occur or are aggravated.
Some of the common symptoms include:
- Blocked, stuffed or running nose
- Electrostatic shocks
- Fatigue, sleeplessness and poor concentration
- Infections and illnesses of our respiratory system like Asthma
- Dry skin diseases like Eczema
- Difficulty in breathing
- Dry, scaly and chapped skin
- Sore and dry throat
- Sore and dry eyes
Types of Humidifiers
- Ultrasonic Humidifiers
- Evaporative Cooling Humidifiers
In ultrasonic humidifiers, ultra-fine mist is produced using high frequency vibrations. The fine mist which is produced passes through the air outlet and is blow in the air to achieve the desired humidity level.
In evaporative cooling humidifiers, surrounding air is cooled using water evaporation technique through wet membrane.
