Frequently Asked Humidification Questions
Most frequent questions and answers on humidifiers
How many types of humidification is there?
There are four main types of humidifiers: Impeller/Cool-mist, Ultrasonic, Evaporative, and Steam. A Plus Air Systems only sells and installs Evaporative and Steam Humidifiers.
Cool-mist or steam humidifiers?
Cool-mist humidifiers work by vibrating water through either ultrasonic or impeller waves. They work poorly compared to Evaporative and Steam Humidifiers. This is because cool-mist humidifiers contain a still water tank which can be a breeding ground for harmful micro-organisms. A Plus Air Systems only installs Evaporator and Steam humidifiers for this reason.
