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.
