The Benefits of Ultrasonic Humidifiers for Your Home and Garden
You may have noticed that your indoor plants are not looking their best, even if you give them enough water and sunlight. This could be because the air in our homes is too dry for them to “breathe” properly through their leaves. Humidity, or the amount of water vapor in the air, can help your plants thrive, and also improve your own well-being! More moisture in the air can ease common allergy symptoms like dry cough and sore throat, as well as heal cracked lips and skin. An ultrasonic humidifier can be a great solution for you and your plants to combat dryness.
What is an Ultrasonic Humidifier?
Unlike most humidifiers that boil water to create steam, ultrasonic humidifiers use high-frequency vibrations to turn water into mist. The ultrasonic design makes the mist particles very small, which prevents the air from becoming too humid or the surroundings from becoming damp. Smaller mist also protects your plants from getting fungal infections or root rot due to excess humidity.
Ultrasonic humidifiers have a simple mechanism, which makes them quieter and smaller than regular humidifiers. They also do not require a filter, which saves you the hassle and cost of replacing them. Some ultrasonic humidifiers let you choose between cool or warm mist, depending on your preference and the season.
How can I benefit from a humidifier?
Humidifiers can help you deal with dryness in your skin, hair, and eyes, as well as reduce allergy symptoms and respiratory problems. When allergies make your nose and throat dry and irritated, a humidifier can soothe them by adding moisture to the air. In the winter, humid air feels warmer than dry air, so you can lower the heater and save energy.
You may be surprised to learn that even plants that live in dry climates, like cacti, need at least 40% humidity levels, while the average home has only about 30% or less due to the effects of air conditioners, heaters, and fans. Plants use tiny openings on the bottom of their leaves, called “stomata”, to take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. If the air is too dry, plants close their stomata to conserve moisture. But this also stops them from “breathing”, making them droop and turn brown.
By keeping the right level of humidity in our homes, we can experience benefits that we didn’t know were possible –for both our plants and ourselves.
