Vaporizers have long co-existed with their sister products humidifiers. In fact some people think they are the same. Some people call the latter products cool mist vaporizers. And the former hot humidifiers.
Both Vaporizers and humidifiers help with making the air we breathe more soothing. But vaporizers have an edge on humidifiers overall. Want to know why? Read on to find out.
First of all is price. Because vaporizers are less complex to make they turn out to be cheaper than most humidifiers. Not only that but they also tend to be less bulky as well.
The chief complaint against humidifiers is the molds that grow inside of them. And the molds they subsequently scatter all over the room. A humidifier that is maintained less than perfectly will be a mold scattering machine. A vaporizer on the other hand kills bacteria and molds even before they are released to the air.
Vaporizers can be used to on medicated vapors. Some humidifiers have been designed to expel scented water but do not come close to the medicated concoctions widely available for most vaporizers.
A little fact about humidifiers is that they cause tiny little water spots on shiny furniture on the room they are installed in. This water spots are so fine that you’ll only notice them on delicate and expensive furniture. Once they set in and harden they can ruin your furniture or other smooth shiny surfaces you care about.
The only thing that humidifiers have over vaporizers is that they are safer. Since they do not rely on high boiling temperatures to release water vapor they do not pose as a threat to burning like vaporizers do.
A properly positioned vaporizer will minimize that threat. So if you are after a better product then you know what is best. Next time you are in a situation where you had to choose one over the other then you know what to get.
