8 best ultrasonic humidifiers

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Normal air humidity for humans is 40 … 70%. With this value, the skin and mucous membranes of the nose and eyes feel comfortable and remain healthy (do not take into account internal factors). The same is true for most plants and animals. With a decrease in the humidity threshold, unpleasant consequences arise in the form of drying out of the mucous membranes and skin, sensitivity to microbes and infections arises, immunity decreases, and it is unpleasant to breathe dry air. Ultrasonic humidifiers are often used to increase the amount of water in indoor air.

How the device works

Ultrasonic humidifiers are one of the most effective directional devices today. The main working element is a diffuser, in which water evaporates by means of high-frequency sound without heating. The liquid enters the air quickly and in the right amount.

In many humidifier models, the quantity of water discharged can be adjusted by adjusting the humidity in the room to suit the specific air condition.

General device benefits include:

  1. Lack of heating water to boiling point;

  2. Rapid evaporation and air saturation;

  3. Comparatively quiet operation of the diffuser;

  4. Low power consumption.

All ultrasonic humidifiers require periodic filter replacement, which gets clogged when using water from the mains. The frequency of replacement can be reduced by using purified distilled liquid.

The experts of the portal have studied the market of ultrasonic humidifiers of ultrasonic type and have identified the leaders according to user reviews in three price categories:

  1. Inexpensive up to 3000 rubles;

  2. Average price in terms of 'price-quality' ratio;

  3. Premium.
