Humidification has a special role in providing comfortable climatic conditions in winter when, even at high relative humidity of air, its absolute water content is as generally very low. Proceeding to the room air is heated. Moreover, its absolute water content remains unchanged, and the relative humidity drops to 5-10%. For comparison, the relative humidity in the Sahara Desert did not fall below 15%! In order to maintain relative humidity at a comfortable level of 50% at room temperature 20 C is required artificial humidification, often enough intensive. In addition to providing comfort, maintaining the necessary level of humidity is also extremely important from the hygienic point of view. It is known that the bacterial flora (pneumococcus, staphylococcus, streptococcus) inhibited 20-fold intensively at a relative humidity of 45 to 55% than when humidity is above 70% and below 20%. Today humidifiers are divided into: steam (cold or hot steam) and ultrasound. The most simple form are humidifiers with a cold vapor. Credit: New York Museums-2011.
In a special compartment filled with water that soaks into the cassette. Through this cassette is a normal room air, blown by fans humidifier. To achieve maximum the effect of such humidifiers should be placed near a heat source (eg, sink). The advantage of these models is the efficiency in electricity consumption, ease of use, quiet operation and Low price. The disadvantage is that these moisturizers will not do "rusty" water from the tap, but if you're still on a dare, you have to buy a special filter. Also, humidity control will depend not on your desire, but from the room air.
Humidifiers with hot steam, respectively, have a number of design features. In them, as in a normal kettle, the formation of steam from water by boiling it. This device itself will maintain the necessary humidity in the room, except when it is over water – itself off. This type of humidifier has a function, so to speak, family doctor. That is, can used for inhalation of air in the house, and hot steam is already kill all microbes. The drawback, steam humidifiers is perhaps only by their high power consumption, water consumption a little more than cold-steam humidifiers. The latest and most advanced type of humidifiers – ultrasonic humidifiers. Through high-frequency sound vibrations from the water a cloud of cold vapor. Air passing through a cloud, saturate with moisture, and the instrument adjusts the level (ie, humidity), depending on your desire in the range of 25-85%. The price of these humidifiers are much higher than that of steam, about 1,5-2 times. This Article courtesy of Air Alter () for the dissemination and popularization of our site.
