We’re all looking for new ways to stay healthy and well, but this isn’t always quite as straightforward as it might appear on the surface. In line with this, doing your research before choosing a health product is integral — and, as part of this, considering the benefits of ultrasonic humidifiers is hugely important. So, the question stands: are ultrasonic humidifiers any good and are they healthy for you, or are they just a fad?

What is an Ultrasonic Humidifier?

Ultrasonic humidifiers are specialist devices used to add moisture to the air in your property. They work by creating ultrasonic waves that disrupt water and cause it to turn into a vapor.

The great thing about these types of humidifiers is that they do not require heat in order to work. This helps eliminate the risks of them causing burns or scalds and also means that if they are knocked by accident, they do not damage surfaces with boiling hot water.

Are Ultrasonic Humidifiers Healthy?

As with any product that claims to promote good health without needing much intervention from the user, it’s only natural to wonder whether or not these systems can provide a genuine benefit. However, if you’ve been looking to invest in ultrasonic humidifiers, there’s some good news: they’re often considered positive for your health.

Research shows that humidifiers generally are good for improving air quality and may significantly help those who suffer from allergies or respiratory conditions.

During the summer months, especially, the air is often dry; thus, those who suffer from hay fever and asthma may experience significant difficulties. This is because the lack of moisture in the air can dry out the nose and mouth, leading to irritation. A similar situation occurs in the winter months for many people, too.

Luckily, this doesn’t have to be the case! By using an ultrasonic humidifier, it’s potentially possible to help moisturize the air and alleviate the symptoms that many allergy sufferers may experience.

Maintaining Hygiene

In some cases, concerns have been raised regarding the cleanliness of humidifiers. For example, a hot vapor humidifier boils or heats the water to produce steam vapor, which in turn sterilizes it. In an ultrasound humidifier, however, there is no need for heat or a heating element. As such, if the unit is not sufficiently cleaned or disinfected, bacteria growth and mold build-ups may occur. This may then spread into the air.

Preventing Mineralisation

Another concern around ultrasonic humidifiers is the use of mineralized water; ideally, distilled water should be used, but this isn’t always practical. This means that, as water evaporates, these minerals can build up. Naturally, users can also breathe in these mineral deposits and dust particles, which may cause issues for people who suffer from allergies or respiratory conditions.

As such, although humidifiers generally are there to help such people, it’s important to maintain them well overall.

Final Thoughts

On the whole,  ultrasonic humidifiers can be a great relief for those who suffer from respiratory conditions (and can provide additional comfort for those who don’t). However, to get the most out of your ultrasonic humidifier – and to keep it running hygienically – it’s always good to regularly clean your device. This simple step ensures that you can enjoy fresh air for months and years to come. For further questions, please contact us at Jelly.Wang@smillon.com.
