The winter air combined with heating appliances can dry out the air in your home, leaving you with dying house plants, dry skin and frequent sore throats – making you more susceptible to the cold and flu viruses.
Our choice of humidifier is the Venta Airwasher. The Venta Airwasher humidifier not only adds moisture to the air through its unique “cold water humidification” process, it also purifies the air at the same time and does both without leaving any of that white “dust” that makes a lot of people stop using their humidifiers.
The secret is in the rotating disc stacks inside the Venta Airwasher’s basin. Intruding particles are attracted to these discs, and sink to the bottom of your Venta Airwasher, where they stay until you clean the unit. And because water evaporates, instead of being misted, into the air, the “dust” creating particles stay in the Venta Airwasher, too.
If you’re like us, you’ve already got a Venta or two, and now is the time to prep it for the season. Just fill the lower basin with water and add a bottle of Venta Cleaner. Run the machine for about two hours, then drain the excess water, and rinse the basin with warm water.
For superior hygienic conditions and improved performance, we also add 3.5 oz. of the Venta Water Treatment Additive every two weeks. The Venta Additive prevents calcium deposits and helps neutralize odors.
With units for 180, 360 or 720 square feet, and with no filter pads or demineralization cartridges to buy, the near-silent Venta Airwasher is the most convenient way to keep your home at optimum humidity this season.
But we know that some people prefer an ultrasonic humidifier, especially one that warms and sterilizes the water before it’s put into the air. We’ve found Air-O-Swiss humidifiers to be the best of this class, and have a variety of models for every size room and budget.
As always, though, if you have any questions about how to choose the best humidifier for your needs, just call us toll free at 888-205-3228 and one of our humidifier experts will help you sort it all out.
