A cool mist humidifier provides everlasting comfort during cold or flu season and helps you get a good night’s sleep. Unfortunately, there are many cool mist humidifiers on the market and not all of them are created equal. Many models can cause damage to your home if they aren’t properly used or maintained, so it’s important to ask the right questions before buying one. Here are questions about the cool mist humidifier that you should always ask before buying one for your home.
1) What are the benefits of using a cool mist humidifier?
The greatest benefit of using a cool mist humidifier is comfort. Unlike warm mist humidifiers, cool mist humidifiers do not change your room temperature and require no additional cleaning efforts. Instead, you can enjoy a soothing environment for your entire family without sacrificing comfort. And, unlike warm mist humidifiers, cool mist humidifiers do not grow bacteria or harbor microbes of any kind because they do not heat water above body temperature.
2) Which room should I use my cool mist humidifier in?
You can use your cool mist humidifier in any room you’d like. But it’s especially good for bedrooms, kitchens, and other rooms where you spend a lot of time throughout your day. Also be sure to keep it away from sinks or anything else that could get wet! If you want to protect your furniture and floors while increasing comfort, put a cool mist humidifier on each floor.
3) What maintenance does my cool mist humidifier require?
You’ll need to replace your cool mist humidifier filter on a regular basis (usually once every 1-2 months) in order to keep your unit operating optimally. The frequency of replacement will depend on how much you use it and whether you live in an area with hard water. If you have hard water, then additional maintenance (beyond replacing filters) may be required—this usually involves using distilled water in addition to replacing filters.
4) How do I choose the right humidity level for my home?
If you’re planning to buy a cool mist humidifier, think about how much humidity your home actually needs. Most people choose between 20% and 40% but really anything above 30% is fine, so pick whatever feels comfortable. Is there anyone in your household with allergies? If so, you might consider getting an evaporative humidifier or one that uses UV-C light technology. Do you want a cool mist or warm mist?
5) My house is already damp, why do I need a cool mist humidifier?
A cool mist humidifier increases air moisture levels to provide everlasting comfort. Since humidifiers produce moist air, they don’t raise humidity or affect indoor humidity levels. A cool mist humidifier is a good option for areas where excess moisture would be an issue such as a bathroom or basement. If you already have high indoor humidity, it’s best to check with your local building code if you can use a cool mist model in your area before purchasing one.
6) Do I need an air purifier with my cool mist humidifier?
You don’t necessarily need an air purifier with your cool mist humidifier, but it is a good idea to get one if you want to ensure that your room has clean air. Most people agree that having clean air and a humidity level of 50% or more leads to everlasting comfort and well-being. An air purifier can help regulate these two things in your home or office.
7) Why would I use Everlasting Comfort technology?
This is how it works: a microprocessor inside of your cool mist humidifier sends out and receives signals from one or more sensors, which helps control its operation so that it runs at optimal efficiency. When you purchase Everlasting Comfort humidifiers, you’re getting a whole new level of convenience and technology that other people might not be able to get without years of experience!
8) Can children use this product? Is it safe for them to be around it?
Though you may have used cool mist humidifiers when you were a child, it’s not recommended to use them with young children. This is because cool mist humidifiers release moisture into your air, but don’t actually clean your air. In fact, many of these units can spread mold and bacteria into your home as they continue to run over time.
