Warm mist humidifiers are often not the first choice when choosing a baby humidifier. There are several reasons for this, and there are also reasons why you should consider a warm evaporator. Some of these reasons will be considered in this article.
With a warm humidifier there is danger that a child could be burned by touching the heated area of a humidifier. This possibility exists with virtually all warm mist evaporators, however, there are some specific models that are safer than others. Be sure to check user reviews if you believe this could be an issue just make sure that the humidifier really is a steam evaporator as there are some models which are not steam humidifiers sometimes labelled as warm mist humidifiers.
Another disadvantage of a warm humidifier is that some find the air more difficult to breath. While this typically isn’t the case there are some who dislike the air from a warm mist humidifier. This could possibly be worsened if you live in a cool climate.
An advantage of a steam humidifier over a cool mist one is in the production of mold and bacteria. Steam humidifiers will typically boil the water, this is why they are also known as steam humidifiers, and this reduces mold and bacteria growth. This may be recommended if your child has a condition such as asthma, you will need to consult with your physician.
Another advantage with a vaporizer humidifier is that certain oils and medicines will not work with a cool mist humidifier. This is because cool mist humidifiers typically just shoot the mist into the air while a warm humidifier utilizes evaporation. Be sure to check the medication that you are considering use of to see if it requires a warm mist humidifier.
