Ultrasonic Humidifiers

An ultrasonic humidifier uses high-frequency sound vibrations to produce an extra fine water mist that is then expelled to add moisture to the room. It's the quieter of the two types of humidifiers.

Evaporative Humidifiers

The most basic way to humidify a room is to place a pot or jar of water in the room and allow the moisture to evaporate into the air to relieve dryness naturally. An evaporative humidifier works on basically the same principle, but it uses a fan to speed up water evaporation and increase humidity in a room. The built-in fan draws in air that blows through a moist wick filter at the bottom of the humidifier. As the water evaporates into vapor, it's pushed out as water mist or spray into the air to increase humidity.

Differences Between Ultrasonic Humidifiers and Evaporative Humidifiers

Ultrasonic Humidifiers Tend to Be More Aesthetically Pleasing.

Evaporative humidifiers are usually bulky because they must accommodate fans and filters. Ultrasonic humidifiers appear smaller. So if it's for aesthetic reasons, you might prefer an ultrasonic humidifier.

Ultrasonic Humidifiers Are Quieter than Evaporative Humidifiers.

Ultrasonic humidifiers use high-frequency sound waves. The human ear cannot detect such high frequencies, which means ultrasonic humidifiers are quiet. When looking for the best humidifier for your bedroom, choosing an ultrasonic model will help ensure your humidifier doesn't interfere with your sleep.

All evaporative humidifiers make some noise because they use a fan to help the water evaporate faster. The fan is constantly running, which will be louder than an ultrasonic humidifier.

Ultrasonic Humidifiers Consume Very Little Electricity.

Since the steam humidifier has an electric heating device, the power consumption is relatively large. There are products with a power consumption of about 300 W to 500 W, generating electricity bills that can reach ten times that of an evaporative humidifier.

Ultrasonic Humidifiers Disperse Minerals and Other Contaminants into the Air.

Since ultrasonic humidifiers have no filters, any minerals or contaminants found in the water used to fill the tank are also released into the air. Minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium are commonly found in tap water. These minerals are released as grey or white dust that may settle on the floor or furniture of the space.

The EPA recommends filling the tank of an ultrasonic humidifier with distilled water. Distilled water still contains some minerals but in much lower concentrations than tap water. Using distilled water reduces the amount of gray or white dust your humidifier releases and reduces mineral deposits and limescale inside the humidifier.

Evaporative Humidifiers Require Filter Maintenance.

Filters in evaporative humidifiers reduce the amount of mineral dust released. However, the presence of the filter also means that you must monitor and replace the filter regularly. (manufacturers generally recommend using a new filter every 1 to 3 months. )

Ultrasonic humidifiers do not require wick or filter replacing.
