How to Choose the Right Humidifier?

First, there are mainly three types of humidifiers on the market: ultrasonic humidifiers, purification humidifiers, and electric heating humidifiers.

Ultrasonic humidifier atomizes water through high-frequency ultrasonic oscillation to achieve a uniform humidification effect. Its advantages are intuitive humidification, quick results, and relatively low price, but it requires high water quality(distilled water).

Purification humidifier first purifies the water and then sends the pure water droplets into the air. There is no spray phenomenon and no white powder and scale. It has low requirements for water sources and low power, but the price is slightly higher.

The electric heating humidifier is the simplest humidification method. It uses a heating element to heat water to the boiling point, generates water vapor, and releases it into the air for humidification. This kind of humidifier has a large humidification capacity, no water quality requirements, and the price is very cheap. However, its safety factor is relatively low, and at the same time, the power consumption is about 10~15 times that of an ultrasonic humidifier.

Important indicators you should consider

Check the degree of atomization and the speed of humidification

A simple way to check the atomization effect: turn the mist volume knob to the middle position, and observe whether the water mist is fine, transparent, and rising. At this time, you can place your palm 20 cm away from the spray port and spray continuously for 15 seconds. If you can feel the palm is moisturized and there are no drops of water, it means that the atomization effect can meet the requirements of uniform, fine and rapid humidification. A good humidifier also has a humidity control panel, which can control the humidity within the ideal range so that it will not dry out. It can also prevent damage to furniture and home appliances caused by excessive humidity.

Choose the right tank capacity

Choose a humidifier with a suitable capacity according to the size of your room. The larger the room, the greater the capacity of the humidifier you need. 2.5L is recommended for a bedroom of about 20 square meters, and 3-4L is generally suitable for a living room of 40 square meters. There is no need to pursue large capacity, which will cause the water in the storage tank to be stored for too long, breed bacteria, and cause "secondary pollution".


Try to choose a humidifier that will automatically cut off the power when the water in the humidifier's water tank is insufficient to avoid burning the dry machine.

Choose your preferred style and needed functions

Humidifiers have a variety of appearances and colors. They are not only an electrical appliance, but also a good decoration in the house. You can choose according to your personal preference. Some humidifiers also add auxiliary functions such as negative ions, oxygen bars, and fragrance, and some even provide steam mask functions, which can be selected according to your needs.
