Strike a balance

A Humidifier is a device that adds moisture to the air to ensure proper humidity levels in the room. Using a humidifier can prevent dryness that may cause irritation in many parts of the body. This device is useful in treating dryness of the skin, nose, throat, and lips. Using a humidifier will also benefit the wood furniture and woodwork in the house that are less likely to dry out and crack if the home’s humidity levels are maintained within the target range of 30 to 50 percent. Also, moist air is a better conductor of heat and feels warmer. So in winter, humidified air will feel warmer than dry air. Humidified air is good for indoor plants. Tropical houseplants, especially, will benefit from being exposed to air that has been humidified.

However, overuse or using humidifiers without cleaning them can do more damage than good.

Respiratory problems can worsen. Too much humidity can create an uncomfortable dampness in the air, which can further create an ideal ambience for dust mites, mildew, mold and harmful bacteria to grow and thrive. Over-humid air can damage paint, plaster, and wallpaper. That apart, regular cleaning is essential to prevent the spread of infection through the growth of germs inside the humidifier.

Adding a vapor like Vicks can also give your children the comfort they need during a cold. Vicks vapors usually come in two flavors: Menthol and Lavender. Vicks can also be added in the form of VapoSteam, which produces medicated steam that provides relief from coughs that arise from colds. The VapoSteam can be added to a Hot Steam Vaporizer or a Warm Mist Humidifier.

Be aware that the tap water that is used in a filter-free cool mist humidifier (also known as ultrasonic humidifier) may have a high mineral content, especially if the humidifier is being used in hard water areas. The minerals in the water will be emitted in the form of “white dust” and settle on surfaces.. A Demineralization Cartridge can help capture the minerals to prevent them from being released into the air. 


Never add salt to a humidifier because it can destroy the metal components inside the humidifier, clog the filter, reduce lifespan of the device and hamper its proper operation. You can use essential oils in some humidifiers specifically designed for that purpose but never dissolve essential oils in the water that is being vaporized. 


Generally, an average bedroom is well served by a 700–900 square foot unit and a 2- or 3-gallon humidifier will usually run from 11 to 16 hours in between fillings. But the usual practice is to keep the humidity range between 30 and 50%. A hygrometer can measure the humidity of your home. Your humidity range will determine the number of hours you should run your humidifier.

As a rule of thumb, in seasons with low humidity levels, you can run the humidifier constantly provided your humidifier has a built-in humidistat that senses air humidity levels and controls the output of the appliance. But if you're only wanting to control the air quality during the night to sleep better, run it during the night and switch it off during the morning. Or, you may choose to give your tropical plants a periodic blast of super-humid air. In these situations, using your humidifier for "spot use" will be fine.
