All the Basics on Humidifiers

A humidifier is used to add moisture to homes and businesses that may otherwise lack it. During the winter months the combination of low or freezing temperatures and heating systems leads to dry and very stale air. Dry air can irritate skin, lips, colds, flues, sinus issues, coughs and even the structure of your home.

If your home needs a humidifier it can be an overwhelming decision determining what humidifier is right for your home and for your family. The first decision to make is whether you want to purchase a warm mist humidifier or cool mist humidifier.

Humidifier Wick

One of the most common types of humidifier is an evaporative or wick humidifier. This type of humidifier has three main components: the humidifier wick (filter), reservoir and fan. This humidifier is the only kind that has a humidifier wick.

The humidifier wick is essential to the operation of this machine. The purpose of the humidifier wick is to absorb water from the reservoir. The water is then evaporated into the air.

A Humidifier With No Filter Saves Time and Money

A humidifier with no filter is incredibly common. Most people prefer this type of humidifier because it is less maintenance than one with a filter. These humidifiers are easy to take care of because you simply clean them and wipe them off instead of cleaning and changing the filter.

A filter is used on some humidifiers to absorb the water from the reservoir and release into the air. It also acts as a filter sucking all the harmful particles and minerals out of the air and water.

Cold Humidifier

Cold humidifiers are popular among parents. The more common name for these is cool mist humidifiers. When looking to purchase a cold humidifier there are three types to consider.

The first is an ultrasonic humidifier. This machine creates cool mist by the means of vibrations. This humidifier is not very popular because it leaves behind white. The next is an evaporative humidifier. It works by transmitting moisture into the air by fan. Finally, and most common, is the impeller humidifier. The impeller humidifier flings water at a diffuser breaking the water into fine droplets that enter the air.

Guitar Case Humidifier – Build Your Own – Inexpensive

How to build your own acoustic guitar (any instrument) case humidifier. I used to put sponges in Plastic Travel Soap Dishes and drill holes in the lid, but they tend to roll and knock about the case which could scratch the headstock. This is so simple and available very inexpensively. Parts are sponges from a dollar store (6 for a buck) and a ziplock bag – either a regular or freezer.

Humidifier or Dehumidifier-Which is Right for You?

The humidity level within our homes is very important to our health, too much or too little humidity can cause everything from condensation and mold to dry skin and respiratory issues. Our homes and our bodies depend on the right humidity levels to stay strong and healthy.

Humidity is described as the water vapor levels that are in the air that we breathe. When the air warms up, the vapor levels drop. As the air becomes heavy with rain, the levels begin to rise. Either of these extremes causes us to become uncomfortable and more susceptible to illnesses.
