Cool Mist Humidifiers – Feel The Breeze!
There are basically three types of cool air humidifiers and you really can't go wrong with any of them. It all comes down to personal preference. This humidifier can be used to make your home or office much more comfortable, especially in winter when the air becomes much drier.
Low humidity often worsens asthma symptoms. Moveable cold mist fans use filters to trap minerals and contaminants in the air and release an invisible cool mist that evaporates into the air. They do not heat the water so there is no risk of burns which is a real plus if there are children or adults living in your home. The three types are:

This type of humidifier uses a wick to hold water. The water is then evaporated with a fan. This is a completely natural form of evaporation that some see as an added benefit. The rate of evaporation slows down with increasing humidity, so these devices are really self-regulating.
In this cool mist humidifier, the rotating disc produces mist. This process of generating water vapor is much quieter than generating it with a fan. Impeller humidifiers are usually available as smaller units so they can be easily moved from room to room. Unlike hot mist humidifiers, which have a heating element, they use minimal electricity. You usually don't need a replacement filter.
Ultrasonic force is a much more modern type and creates mist using sound waves that vibrate the water. They are very effective and almost silent to our human ears. You will find that this style almost always includes a demineralization filter that captures minerals before they are released into the air. Some ultrasonic humidifiers come with a heating option. When using cooling mists, they also use low power consumption.
