If the air is dry in your room, a humidifier would be the solution. But you need to check the followings before purchasing a humidifier.
1. Get a hygrometer to determine the humidity level in your room.
Not all people can have a right judgment on the humidity level by feeling dry or skin problems. And a hygrometer not only helps you to decide whether you really need a humidifier but also would be a tool to maintain a healthy humidity level after you buy one
2. Decide the type of humidifier you want.
a. Usually you can choose from warm mist or cool mist or with both functions. You can get advice from your doctors. Or decide in which mist you can breathe more easily. Warm mist usually uses a heating system so maybe not safe for kids and seniors. But it all depends on your needs.
b. According to different Humidification Processes, humidifiers use basically two different ways to generate steam or moisture. Those evaporative are more common and generally the cheapest; and those ultrasonic produce a finer water mist. They are both can be used for generating warm or cold steam. But those evaporative usually have a boil system for warm mist. So those ultrasonic are considered to be safer and quieter.
c. Choose the capacity and style you want
Capacity depends on your room size. Usually it will note on package saying for 600 sq etc. it can be easily confused with the amount of moistures it puts out, which is larger than the water tank capacity. Water tank capacity would be a clear indication of the capacity. If the capacity is too big, your room will get too much moisture. Humidifiers can with different styles also, personal, portable, etc for different places.
3. Operation noise level and ease of handling
Choose quiet ones if you buy for your bedroom. But even a quiet one, there will be noise too. Allow yourself some time to adjust to it. Also check the refilling, whether it is easy for you to refill after 12 hours or 24hours but not every 8 hours.
There are still many things to consider. Do your research and you will find a perfect humidifier for you. If you interested in buying a humidifier, you can check our SPT humidifiers.
