Humidification

Indoor air humidification

  1. Ultrasonic or mist humidification:

    This is the technology most widely used in France. Water from the tank flows over an ultrasonic plate that vibrates. These vibrations break up the water molecules into fine droplets, which are then released into the air as a cold, visible mist. One of the advantages of this technology is its ability to raise low humidity levels. Inexpensive and energy-efficient, ultrasonic humidifiers are highly appreciated.
  2. Evaporative humidification:

    plant fiber filters are half immersed in the reservoir water. By capillary action, the water rises along the filters. A fan blows through the filters, humidifying the water before dispersing it into the air, invisible to the naked eye. This technique is the most natural and requires little energy consumption.
  3. Hot-steam humidification:

    This technology is based on the same principle as a kettle. A heating plate is placed at the bottom of the unit. As the water boils, steam is released from the humidifier into the ambient air. Heating the water to a temperature of 100° eliminates bacteria and germs. This not only humidifies the air, but also makes it healthier and purer.
  4. Why humidify?

    When temperatures drop, we tend to close the windows and turn on the heating to keep warm. Yet these seemingly innocuous gestures dry out the air in our homes. That's why it's so important to choose the right humidifier for the job. It's advisable to maintain a humidity level of around 50-55%. Humidity levels that are too low can have adverse health effects (dry mucous membranes, coughing, chapped lips and hands, etc.). Most humidifiers on the market are equipped with a hygrometer, so you can check the humidity level in your rooms in real time. In addition to the technical aspect of the device, it's essential to take into account its many functions when making your purchase. A silent humidifier will give you a peaceful night's sleep. While the aromatherapy function lets you relax... Opt for a humidifier with an easy-to-fill tank. That way, you'll avoid inconveniences such as leaks during transport.

    Did you know how long it takes for humidity to rise?

    Humidity levels can take a long time to build up again, despite daily refilling of the water tank. This is the case for mountain dwellings such as chalets. The structure of these dwellings is generally made of wood, a material that will primarily absorb water. We therefore recommend that you leave the humidifier running 24 hours a day.
