How Ultrasonic Humidifiers Can Help You Cope With Winter Weather
Winter air is known for being dry — which also extends to the air inside your home. You might notice your skin feel rough or cracked, chapped lips, nose bleeds and static electricity in the air. Many people love using humidifiers in the winter to infuse much-needed moisture back into their indoor air. There are all kinds of humidifiers you can choose from, but we love what an ultrasonic humidifier can do for your home.
Ultrasonic humidifiers use high-frequency vibrations to generate a micro-fine mist which is output into your room for increased humidity. This humidification technology uses a metal diaphragm that vibrates at a high frequency to generate a micro-fine cool or warm mist. A fan then blows the mist into the room where it immediately evaporates.
These ultrasonic vibrations kill much of the bacteria and viruses. Additionally, ultrasonic humidifiers are very energy efficient and virtually silent while operating. In the past there were some disadvantages to ultrasonic humidifiers, such as white mineral dust and the build-up of bacteria and mold in the tank. However, many of the ultrasonic humidifiers available today, like those offered by Air-O-Swiss or Stadler Form, are equipped with demineralization cartridges and hydro cells to counteract these problems.
Ultrasonic humidifiers are easily portable, and can be instantly turned on and off. There’s no waiting time for a heating element to boil the water, either, because the mist is produced through oscillation.
