Humdifiers - Ocean County Indoor Air Quality Contractors
Professional Humidifier Installation Contractor
Dry New Jersey winter air can wreak havoc on the body, causing a variety of cold and allergy symptoms. Dry air can also harm paint and wood furniture. While we cannot control the humidity level outdoors, we can use humidifiers to adjust the indoor humidity. Humidifiers are designed to increase the moisture, or humidity, in the air. Humidifiers also reduce the static electricity in the home, reducing the possibility of being “shocked.” For best comfort and health, humidity levels should be between 30 and 50 percent.
Though there are different types of humidifiers, they all work by the same basic concept: water is placed in a holding tank and electronically sent into the air. Cool mist humidifiers, also called evaporative humidifiers, use a fan to blow water through a wick filter. The cool mist of water then evaporates into the air. Warm mist humidifiers, on the other hand, heat the water before sending it into the air. Cool mist versus warm mist is largely a matter of preference, although warm mist units generally make less noise. Warm mist humidifiers can also be used to dispense inhaled medications. In addition, warm mist units do not require a filter as the heating mechanism kills bacteria. On the other hand, it does require more energy to heat the water. Care should be taken when using warm mist humidifiers as they can prevent a risk of burns. Additionally, those in warmer climates may prefer the cool mist humidifiers as they cool the air.
