It’s extremely common for most Singaporeans to use air conditioners to beat the sultry weather conditions we face every day. However, we probably don’t realise that with this habitual act comes some consequences too.
From milder symptoms like sore throat and sinus to more severe conditions of viral infections, dry environments and low humidity conditions are never optimal. But the good news is that humidifiers can help ease all these symptoms! Read on to find out which are the best humidifiers to get in Singapore!
Types of humidifiers
Given the many types of humidifiers available on the market, check out our basic guide to help you decide which is the best one to get for your air-conditioned office or home!
Evaporative humidifiers diffuse air over a moisturised wick filter, allowing water vapour to evaporate into the air. This will increase humidity levels and relieve dryness.
Evaporative humidifiers don’t consume much power and are the more budget-friendly option! However, due to the fan mechanism which they run on, they can get noisy. But if you’re already used to sleeping with a white noise machine, then you might not mind the sound created by evaporative humidifiers. We hear they produce similar sounds!
Ultrasonic humidifiers use high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations to produce water mist which is then diffused into the air to add moisture into the room. If you prefer a quieter humidifier, opt for ultrasonic humidifiers!
These humidifiers are also safer compared to evaporative humidifiers. Since there’s no use of hot water, there is no possibility of scalding at all. Hence you can place this humidifier in your children’s room without any concern! However, do take note that the lack of filters to absorb mineral scale deposits might leave your home dustier than before.
