Humidifiers in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky

Whenever winter approaches, you often prepare for the cold days ahead. However, you shouldn’t forget that this season also introduces dry air into your home.

Cold air has a harder time retaining moisture, making it more difficult for your body to adjust. This, plus the fact that you’re using your heating system, makes your living spaces even more uncomfortable. Prolonged exposure to this type of environment increases the risk of the following health problems:

  • Chapped lips
  • Inflamed sinuses
  • Nasal congestion
  • Eye and skin irritations
  • Dry skin
  • Dry cough
  • Dry throat
  • The winter itch

Thankfully, you can avoid encountering these and create a pleasant indoor environment with a reliable humidifier installed.

How a Humidifier Works

A humidifier is a type of appliance that forces moisture into the indoor air. It does this by emitting a mist of vapor into the room to increase the level of humidity in the area. There are several types of humidifiers available on the market. Depending on what you need, you can choose among the following:

Central humidifier

A central humidifier is installed directly to your HVAC system and is hooked up to the home’s plumbing. Like what its name suggests, it humidifies your entire property at once. For some homeowners, this is the cheaper and more efficient option compared to single-room humidifiers.

Impeller humidifier

The impeller is one of the most commonly seen and used humidifier in homes. It uses a rotating disc that sends water through the diffuser, which is broken down into smaller droplets before diffusing it into the air. The droplets come out of the appliance in a fog-like mist. This unit might be small, but it’s powerful enough to cover large areas. It also consumes very minimal energy so you can keep the indoors comfortable without worrying about high energy bills.

Evaporator

Another commonly used humidifier is the evaporator. This system has a simple design and provides the most basic level of humidification. It works by transferring water that’s in the basin to a wick that’s placed next to a fan. When the fan is turned on, it blows on the wick – releasing evaporated water into the surroundings.

Ultrasonic humidifier

The ultrasonic humidifier introduces moisture back into the air with either a warm or cool mist. It uses high-frequency technology that sends off a vibration in the water, which causes the water to break into small droplets. The droplets then turn into vapor that’s released into the air. Because of how it’s designed and how it functions, the ultrasonic humidifier lasts longer.

Steam vaporizer

A steam vaporizer is mostly used for inhalation purposes. It helps treat coughs and congestion by providing a mist of warm steam into the room. Some models are waterless and use pre-moistened pads. These pads are infused with aromatic or essential oils to provide relief and therapeutic benefits.
