Ultrasonic Humidifiers. Warm and Cool Mist Humidifiers
Ultrasonic humidifiers use high-frequency vibrations to generate a micro-fine cool or warm mist. This micro-fine mist is blown into the room where it immediately evaporates to create a comfortable environment. Ultrasonic humidifiers are virtually silent and make for an excellent choice in the bedroom. We have tested all the brands, such as Air O Swiss, Stadler Form and pureguardian, for their reliability which is excellent. They are also to be recommended for their ability to reduce bacteria and germs caused by standing water, and method for reducing mineral dust which can be problematic for hard water areas. What we have to offer are truly the best in class humidifiers available. Ultrasonic humidifiers come in cool mist alone or the slightly more expensive warm and cool mist combination models, which we recommend. pureguardian offers a no maintenance solution, while both Air O Swiss and Stadler Form offer humidifiers of a quality that is not common to this category.
If you are interested in other types of humidifiers we have a large selection.
Ultrasonic Warm/Cool and Cool Mist Humidifier Pluses
Ultrasonic humidifiers are quieter than evaporative cool mist units
When using the warm mist option, the mist will evaporate faster into the air so you will be able to increase the humidity very fast. If using the humidifier in a bedroom you will not need to have it going all day.
Warm mist humidifiers feel the most comfortable especially in Northern winters
Ultrasonic humidifiers require less cleaning
There is no limit to how much humidity you can add to the air since the water mist droplets will not decrease regardless of the room humidity. Ultrasonic humidifiers are particularly beneficial if one wants to raise the humidity over 45% or higher such as preserving certain materials or products for example cigars, musical instruments, etc.
Ultrasonic Warm/Cool and Cool Mist Humidifier Minuses
They cover a smaller area than the evaporative cool mist humidifiers, often no more than one decent sized bedroom.
They require placement at least 2 feet from the floor to prevent the moisture from hitting the floor before it has a chance to evaporate. Note that as the humidity increases in the room, the mist being emitted will take longer to evaporate into the air. Therefore, you may find it necessary to raise the humidifier positioning higher from the floor and/or use the warm mist option if available.
