What is a humidifier?

What is a Humidifier?

Humidifiers are appliances that add moisture to the air in your home to keep the air from drying out. Humidifiers are available for single rooms or small areas, or for entire homes or buildings. Whole-home humidifiers work with existing HVAC equipment to add humidified air to outgoing air before it goes through the ductwork and into the home. They also work as a stand-alone product, working independently of your HVAC equipment to maintain humidity levels even when the furnace or air handler isn’t in use.

Types of Humidifiers

If the air in your home is too dry, you should consider investing in a humidifier to add moisture to the air. Mason Heating & Cooling offers a line of humidifiers that help optimize your home heating system in the winter and relieve dry air and low humidity issues such as wood damage, chapped lips, dry skin, flu symptoms, and allergy and asthma flare-ups. The following are the different types of humidifiers available:

Types of Humidifier Technology

Central Humidifier 
Central or whole-home humidification units are installed directly into a homeowner’s HVAC system. These are effective in humidifying the home evenly throughout. 

Impeller Humidifier 
This is also called a “cool mist humidifier.” It utilizes a rotating disc that emits water through a diffuser that breaks larger droplets up into a fine mist. Considered a child-friendly option, it requires minimal energy to humidify a larger area. A disadvantage is that they can be noisy and bacteria can possibly gather around the filter. 

Evaporator Humidifier 
These are single units that add moisture to the room it is placed in. This works similar to  a boiling pot of water that evaporates and sends moisture to the air. They are small and relatively inexpensive options. However, evaporator  humidifiers are only intended for  small areas. 

Steam Vaporizers 
These are portable units that can be found at your area drugstore or bought online. Keep in mind though, that “they are known to cause burns, so be cautious using these around pets or small children. 

Ultrasonic Humidifier 
This is a single unit that puts moisture in the air using  high-frequency sound vibrations. These vibrations produce an extra fine water mist.

Lowers Heating Bill

Increased humidity during the summer months makes it feel warmer in the home because of the excess moisture. By adding some moisture to the air in your home during the summers, you’ll end up lowering your heating bills.


Prevents Morning Sore Throat

Overly dry air affects your vocal cords and can cause you to have a dry, scratchy throat in the morning. Keeping the air moist and maintaining suitable humidity levels during the winter helps relieve this problem , especially while you sleep.


Comfortable Sinuses

Have you ever woken up feeling like your nose is dry and stiff during the winter? Even if you don’t have a cold, winter air dries out the sinuses. It also lowers one’s immunity to airborne and other bacteria. Additional moisture in the air brings comfort to your sinuses.


Reduce the Risk of Illness

Bacteria and viruses are unable to travel well in moist air. Using a humidifier may possibly prevent you from getting sick during the cold season. In any case, dry air can cause a host of health-related problems.

What is the ideal level of humidity to maintain?

Experts recommend that homeowners maintain in their homes a relative humidity level between 30 and 50 percent, with some stating the best range to be between 40 and 50 percent. Humidity levels above 50 percent creates a breeding ground for such organisms as bacteria, mold, and dust mites. If humidity levels fall below 30 percent, it increases the risk of flu and cold viruses and can cause uncomfortable respiratory symptoms.

What size humidifier do I need?

The size of humidifier you need will vary depending on the square footage area you would like to humidify. Most humidifier manufacturers state the coverage range in square footage with their product’s specifications. If what you’re looking for is humidity control for your entire house to protect wood and ensure more comfortable environment that costs less to heat, give us a call or check out our whole-home humidifier special offer.

How much upkeep do humidifiers require?

If you prefer a humidifier that requires minimal effort in maintaining the humidity level in your home, you definitely should consider a whole-house humidifier. In contrast, portable humidifiers require regular maintenance that includes cleaning it and constantly filling the reservoir.
