Home Air Humidifiers: Types
The climate is changing, summer is getting hotter every year. Many people start to think about preserving moisture in the home air. The purifier and humidifier for the house became very popular. The problem arises only in the fact that it is difficult to choose the appropriate design option, because each model has its advantages and disadvantages.
The humidifiers for the house presented on the market differ in power, method and power of evaporation and in auxiliary functions. This is ionization, aromatization, air purification.
Humidifiers for home are divided according to the principle of action. There are three main types: ultrasonic, steam and traditional.
Traditional moisturizer is used, as a rule, in everyday life. Has a fairly simple design (evaporation of moisture occurs on its own). Only a fan is used, which drives the air flow through the filter.
At the heart of steam humidifiers is the principle of operation of an electric kettle. The water in them is heated batchwise to boiling, which helps intensive evaporation. They are necessarily equipped with a hydrostatic (determines the humidity of the air), which switches off the device when a certain humidity of air is reached. With the help of such humidifiers it is possible to raise the humidity to the level of steam (condensate forms, which subsequently falls out as dew). The capacity of such an aggregate reaches 16 liters per day. Its power is up to 60W. The average cost of such models is $ 80.
Humidifiers for the home are ultrasonic. Such a device is considered more efficient among other types of devices. Its principle of operation is based on the creation of fog with the subsequent knocking out of it droplets of water with the help of ultrasonic vibrations, which are generated by piezoelectric radiation. With the help of a natural current of air, fog is spread throughout the room. By natural evaporation, the mist particles are converted to steam (air humidity greatly increases in the room). Part of the mist settles on the hard surfaces of the room and dries up. This can lead to the formation of spots on hard surfaces (the components of the water composition remain), therefore it is recommended to use only distilled water in the work.
As a rule, ultrasonic humidifiers for the home have a capacity of up to 12 liters per day. Power consumption up to 50W (in the presence of an element for heating water can increase to 125W). At this time, household air humidifiers worth $ 20-300 are very popular.
Advantages of ultrasonic humidifier include automatic maintenance of high humidity in the room, almost noiseless operation, safety in operation, reasonable cost. The disadvantages are not so many: the formation of a white coating when pouring ordinary water, the price of replaceable cartridges is high.
