Buying a humidifier

Not only asthmatics and allergy sufferers suffer from dry room air. With a humidifier, you can have a healthy indoor climate. Whether in the private sphere, office or work space, this is important everywhere. But how do the devices work and how do they differ?

Room humidifiers - what are the advantages?

The air in rooms is particularly dry during the heating season. This has a negative effect on people, animals and plants. The solution is to buy a humidifier. It releases water into the air in a controlled manner. Higher humidity improves well-being and comfort, and your health benefits from it. The device relaxes your airways, for example. Humidity is ideally 45 to 55 percent, and if it is too low, the mucous membranes can dry out. Pathogens can get into your body almost unhindered. Dry air increases the risk of infection with flu viruses. A room climate that is too dry promotes:

  • Coughing
  • Itchy skin
  • Headache
  • Sleep disturbance

Humidifiers for the bedroom or other rooms - different types

In the online shop you will find various devices that improve your feel-good climate at home, for example the VapoAir Opal humidifier from Klarstein, which humidifies the room air with seven misting levels. It is suitable for every occasion because you can decide whether you want cold or warm mist. When the set humidity is reached, the device switches itself off or vice versa. Thanks to the LED screen with the digital humidity display, you can always keep everything in view.

Another special device you can buy is the Monaco humidifier, which generates a fine water mist thanks to ultrasonic technology and eliminates dust, bacteria and fungi with the antibacterial filter. The device also functions as an air purifier. Air humidification reduces dust exposure and thus allergy symptoms. The ioniser also helps to combat unpleasant odours such as cigarette smoke.

Which room humidifier should you buy?

If you wish, you can also use the heating function to generate warm fog. The aroma diffuser gives the water mist a scent. Operation of the device is easy and comfortable thanks to the touch display and the remote control. Air washers are humidifiers and cleaners at the same time. An advantage is that all devices are very stylish and fit perfectly into the room. Depending on the size of the water tank, you can use it for different rooms. The manufacturers give a recommendation for which size device is sufficient.


What are the advantages of a room humidifier?

A healthy level of balanced humidity prevents the mucous membranes from drying out, especially during the heating season, and supports the immune system. With good room air you can breathe healthy. The efficient ultrasonic nebulisers are suitable for continuous operation. The operating noise is hardly perceptible.

How do humidifiers work?

Atomisers that use ultrasound are widespread. The water is nebulised into tiny droplets. They have a low energy consumption. The air washers also filter dust and pollen, for example.

Which features are useful?

With different levels of the humidifier, you can adjust the room climate individually to your desired value. With automatic devices, the humidity can be adjusted. An integrated hygrostat continuously measures the value and adjusts the output. A switchable ioniser converts oxygen molecules into negative ions. This makes filtering easier. With a remote control, you can operate the device from the sofa and set the operating time with a timer.
