Do you need an Evaporative or Ultrasonic Humidifier?
What is an Evaporative Humidifier and how does it work?
- Evaporative type humidifiers work like a jar of water in a room that allows the moisture to naturally evaporate into the air to remove dryness.
- When it comes to the Humidiwick Evaporative Humidifiers, the filter in the humidifier holds and draws the water up to a fan and then expels it from the unit putting moisture into the air. This process greatly accelerates the evaporation of the water into the air, thus providing soothing, humidified air in a short amount of time.
What is an Ultrasonic Humidifier and how does it work?
- An ultrasonic humidifier uses high-frequency sound vibrations to produce a water mist that is expelled into the air to add moisture to the room.
