• Q What Is an Air Washer?

    Before we go further, we first need to clarify what an air washer is. An air washer is a specialist 2-in-1 cleaning solution designed – as the name suggests – to clean the air in your home. The unique cleansing solution takes in your property’s air and helps cleanse it to remove impurities and pollution; all the while, it simultaneously helps moisten and humidify the air thanks to the in-built humidifier function. 
    As such, an air washer is a highly effective solution to help clean and look after the air in your home. However, it’s crucial to consider that air washers cannot always provide a 100% cleaning solution. Nevertheless, it’s still a valuable option to consider if you have been looking for a reliable option to clean the air in a property. 
  • Q Is an Air Washer Just an Air Purifier with Water?

    Many people make the assumption that an air washer is just a typical air purifier with extra water added in. However, this is not the case since air purifiers provide a far more complex solution than just adding a little water vapor to your property’s air.
    While they are similar to this, an air purifier works to capture particles, pollution, and the like and remove them from the air through a series of purification and filtration processes. However, during this process, the air washer also humidifies the air that comes in, allowing the expelled air to be slightly less dry than when it entered the humidifier. In turn, regular use can allow your air washer to not only remove a large amount of contamination from your air but also make the room more comfortable if it has been feeling dry.
  • Q Air Washer vs Air Purifier

    An air washer differs from an air purifier thanks to its unique humidifying nature. This ensures that the expelled air is clean, free from contamination, and moistened, making the room potentially more comfortable to live and work in.
    As such, it’s unsurprising that a growing number of people are choosing an air washer for their homes or commercial properties, making this a valuable investment to make for your business’s collection.
  • Q Air Washer vs Air Humidifier

    Both air washers and air humidifiers help add moisture to dry, uncomfortable air. However, they do this in very different ways. It is important to note here that both air washers and air humidifiers have the potential to clean the air; for example, a warm mist humidifier boils water into steam, which is an effective way to remove a large amount of the potential pathogens on the air.
    Air washers take things a step further. They don’t provide the same level of humidifying as a dedicated humidifier, usually. However, air washers are nevertheless effective for adding a little extra moisture to a dry room while simultaneously filtering out and trapping pollutants and contaminants from the air – making them a 2-in-1 solution. 
  • Q How Does an Air Washer Work?

    An air washer is actually a surprisingly simple device, although the specific mechanisms of how they work are much more complex. During the air washing process, contaminated, polluted, or dry air is taken into the device through suction; then, the air washer uses a basic evaporation process to collect contaminants from the air and separate them.
    The air passes over several metal plates and absorbs water particles simultaneously; this helps humidify the air while also removing any nasty contaminants. As such, at the end of the process, the purified air is released back into the property – taking some of the water droplets with it – and the process repeats for the next suction of air.
    There are numerous different air washers on the market, and these all work a little differently. Some, for example, offer even greater levels of purification by first passing the air through an incredibly fine mesh filter. This increases the potential purification potential for the air washer, which could make it a good option to consider for properties in highly polluted regions.
  • Q Are Humidifiers In Your Home Necessary?

    Firstly, we need to clarify whether (or not) an ultrasonic humidifier is necessary in your home. Overall, there is no requirement to invest in a humidifier in your home since this comes down to personal choice. 
    Many people and homes may not even need a humidifier (for example, if they live in an already-humid region). However, if the air in your home is usually dry, you may want to invest in a humidifier to help make your home more comfortable. Once you’ve invested in the humidifier, you may notice that your home becomes significantly more comfortable overall.
    However, if your home is already comfortable and the air in your home is not dry, you won’t need to invest in humidifier technology for your home. Humidifiers are mainly valuable in scenarios when your home has dry air; as such, if the air does not feel dry, you may not necessarily benefit from having a humidifier.
  • Q Will A Humidifier Help Me With My Dry Skin?

    A If you have been struggling with dry skin, it’s possible for the issue to be the result of dry air on your property. Dry air in your property can draw moisture from your skin naturally, causing your skin to become substantially drier than normal. In these scenarios, investing in a humidifier can definitely help with dry skin. Slightly damper air will usually cause your skin to lose moisture at a slower rate, allowing your skin to potentially recover from dryness. However, even with a humidifier, good moisturizing routines are still crucial to ensure that your skin heals and recovers as quickly as possible.
  • Q What Month Should You Use A Humidifier?

    A There is no set month for when you should use a humidifier; however, as a general rule, you should use a humidifier during months when the air is dryer and has less moisture. This commonly occurs during the heat of the summer, but dry air can occur at any time of year, depending on your climate conditions.
  • Q What Is The Optimal Humidity Level For A Bedroom?

    A It’s often not easy to find the most effective sleeping strategies for your home. However, generally speaking, your bedroom should fall at roughly 40% humidity – with roughly a 10% leeway on either side – for sleeping. The humidity may not need to be quite this level if you’re not sleeping, but it’s well worth considering how you can keep your bedroom a comfortable humidity to help you get a better night’s sleep overall.
  • Q Would A Ultrasonic Humidifier Damage My Furniture?

    Generally speaking, an ultrasonic humidifier is very safe to use. However, it’s important to consider that an ultrasonic humidifier can increase your property’s moisture level to excessively high. 
    In turn, this could put your furniture at risk of slight water damage. In addition, if you don’t ensure your home has plenty of good airflow, you may find that your ultrasonic humidifier increases the risk of mold spores breaking out on the property or your furniture.
  • Q Is It Harmful To Breathe In Vapor Mist From A Ultrasonic Humidifier?

    A Generally speaking, the mist from an ultrasonic humidifier should not be dangerous to breathe in, since it’s just water droplets. However, it is very important to keep in mind that non-distilled water could put you at risk when using your ultrasonic humidifier. After all, unlike a warm mist humidifier, an ultrasonic humidifier does not heat the water to remove pathogens. Therefore, regular water stands a higher chance of containing pathogens or contaminants.
  • Q Is Ultrasonic Humidifier Hurt People?

    A An ultrasonic humidifier should usually be a very safe product when used with distilled water. However, an ultrasonic humidifier may be risky to use with anything other than distilled water. Still, if you experience any side effects after using your humidifier, you must always discontinue use of the device immediately. 
  • Q How Do Ultrasonic Devices Affect Cats?

    A Ultrasonic devices are referred to as such due to their high frequency or pitch. Unfortunately, this means that ultrasonic devices, such as our ultrasonic humidifiers, may potentially distress some pets slightly, such as dogs and cats. Fortunately, they shouldn’t cause injury or illness to your pets, but if you notice that your pets appear distressed when your ultrasonic devices are turned on, you should turn off the device to prevent further distress.
  • Q How Do Ultrasonic Humidifiers Work?

    A Ultrasonic humidifiers work by using a piezoelectric ceramic transducer to create high-frequency vibrations. These vibrations cause the water in the humidifier's reservoir to turn into a fine mist or fog. The mist is then released into the air through a fan, helping to increase indoor humidity levels.
  • Q Is It Ok To Use Tap Water In Ultrasonic Humidifier?

    In most cases, tap water will be fine with your humidifier in an emergency. This fact is since tap water is specifically designed with your health in mind, and water companies treat it very rigorously to remove contamination. And, if you run out of distilled water on a hot day, sometimes, reaching for tap water in an emergency may be another option.
    While tap water likely won’t hurt your humidifier once or twice, in the long run, the minerals could impact your humidifier’s performance. Furthermore, depending on the condition of your property’s pipes, there’s a slight chance of your tap water containing pathogens or contamination picked up from the piping. As such, opting for distilled water that’s guaranteed pure instead is often the best way to refresh your home.
  • Q Can Oil Diffuser Be Used As A Ultrasonic Humidifier?

    Can an essential oil diffuser work as an alternative to a humidifier? It might seem like the answer should be an obvious no, but this isn’t wholly true. Indeed, technically speaking, an essential oil diffuser could work as a small humidifier. Essential oil diffusers work similarly to a humidifier, releasing very small amounts of evaporated essential oils into your room. Along the same line of thought, you could also use them to release a small amount of water vapor into your room to increase the humidity.
    At this point, we’ve clarified that yes – you can technically use an essential oil diffuser as a small humidifier. However, the word “small” is especially critical here since, in many cases, it’s easy to overlook how little humidity an essential oil diffuser can provide. Since essential oil diffusers are only designed to release a very sparse amount of essential oils into your home at one time, they will do the same with pure water. As such, while they may add a little extra moisture to the air, especially on a hot day, their value for a large space is likely limited. Ideally, you should only rely on them for a tiny space, such as a box room or a cupboard; moreover, putting them in the middle of the room may help increase their ability to cool you down.
  • Q Can Boiling Water Be Used As An Alternative To A Humidifier?

    There’s a lot to love about using a humidifier – however, many people find themselves wondering whether they could just recreate the same effect at home by boiling a pan of water. Unfortunately, the results with this could be highly variable.
    Boiling a pan of water may well add a little extra moisture to your property’s air. However, doing so comes with three notable drawbacks:
    1) It’s hard to control the level of humidity in your home
    2) Boiling or heating a pan of water comes with expensive energy costs
    3) If you love the scent of pure essential oils, this can be hard to recreate simply by boiling water
    As such, if you have been looking to enjoy the full benefits of a humidifier, the original is still the best option to go for. That aside, boiling a pan of water may also increase the temperature in your room, rather than cooling things down, making it less effective for controlling environmental temperatures.
  • Q How Do You Properly Use A Ultrasonic Humidifier?

    Ultrasonic humidifiers are just one of the many types of humidifiers on the market; other options include evaporating humidifiers and warm mist humidifiers. However, ultrasonic humidifiers work through incredibly rapid vibrations, which help generate a gentle mist within your property. 
    In order for the humidifier to work effectively, the reservoir or tank must be kept filled to ensure that there is plenty of water available; you may need to top this up periodically to ensure a steady flow of mist from the device.
  • Q Do Humidifiers Use A Lot Of Electricity?

    There is no set rule of thumb as to how much electricity humidifiers use, as this depends on factors such as the type of humidifier, how long you run it, etc.
    Most notably, the amount of electricity used depends on the type of humidifier you have, the size and power of it and how often it is run. Larger humidifiers that are left on for longer periods of time will naturally use much more energy than smaller models.
    It’s also worth noting that evaporating or ultrasonic humidifiers typically use considerably less energy than warm mist humidifiers. This is because the latter must first heat the water to boiling point to get it to turn into steam. As a result of this, energy usage for warm mist humidifiers can be up to 136% more than for cool mist humidifiers.
  • Q Do I Really Have To Clean My Humidifier?

    A As is the case with most things, you should always clean your humidifier occasionally to prevent bacteria from building up, which could cause illness. Of course, a warm mist humidifier is likely to need cleaning less often since it sterilizes the water with each use. However, it’s worth considering that any mold or pathogens in the humidifier may be released into your air during use, making this a significant health risk. A simple rinse, wash, and dry should be sufficient; however, if left longer, antibacterial wipes can help keep everything clean and safe.
