What Do You Mean By A Humidifier And What Is Its Working Principle?
A humidifier helps in adding humidity to the surrounding air by the process of steam, evaporation, impeller, and ultrasonic.
Many different types of humidifiers are available to house owners in the USA. These include:

Portable Humidifiers
• Evaporative Type Of Humidifiers: This humidifier makes use of a membrane, fabric, or a wick in order to soak water. A blower or a fan then helps in further blowing of air against the wall membrane helping the air to evaporate. These types of humidifiers must be cleaned at a regular interval and membrane must be replaced every three months to help in preventing mold growth.

These types of humidifiers don’t use heat thus are safe for the children. They even come at a very low price and are mostly easy in maintenance than any of the other types.
• Warm Mist Humidifiers or Steam Humidifiers: These types of humidifiers make use of a typical heating element that can heat water until and unless it boils and emits heat. They can be used when the residents seem to be unhealthy and it works well only in some small areas.
• Ultrasonic Humidifiers: These humidifiers make use of ultrasonic sounds to create air contained with humidity. They do not contain any membranes nor any filters. They can work best when used with clean and clear distilled water. The water content in them must be changed at regular intervals to help prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria.

Whole House Humidifiers
These humidifiers are of two types Drum and Flow-through. Both of these two types allow the house owners to humidify their entire space without the need of setting of separate portable units for each house.

Why You Must Use A Humidifier?

If the humidity level of your house is extremely low, it can result in bad health condition or some chronic problems. Areas having low humidity generally soaks up moisture from any place, including that of your house’s window frames, wooden furniture, door jambs, floorboards etc. This can even result in floor cracks or shifts in the frames, or even joint separation in case of wooden furniture.
