Our customers often ask us whether they should choose a warm or a cool mist humidifier. To simplify the answer, our years of experience (along with doctor and allergist recommendations) have proven that a cool-mist humidifier is best used to combat allergies while a warm-mist humidifier offers relief for those with asthma, a cold, the flu or respiratory infection. Other symptoms such as dry skin, swollen nasal passages, sinus headaches, and asthma will also be relieved while in a well humidified room. As a first step, our product experts recommend placing one of our virtually-silent ultrasonic humidifiers in each of your bedrooms for improved sleep. Many of our ultrasonic humidifiers deliver both warm and cool mist with the touch of a button. Larger, fan-based humidifiers are recommended for humidifying larger, open areas of your home.
For the best soothing, warm steam humidifier, you might consider the Air-O-Swiss S450.
For a quiet bedroom, we recommend our Air-O-Swiss and Stadler Form humidifiers.
For a large open area, we recommend our evaporative, fan-based AIRCARE humidifiers.

More Information about Humidifiers
In our testing of home humidifiers, we have found that they often humidify an area less than what is stated by the manufacturer. The AllergyBuyersClub product review group tests and published information about each humidifier to ensure that you are getting a high quality machine that will be appropriate for the location you intend on using it.
