5 Types of Humidifiers

5 Types of Humidifiers

Humidifiers come in all shapes and sizes, from tiny portable units to furniture-sized consoles. But they all do the same thing: They put moisture in the air. And they do it in one of five ways.

1 - Evaporation. Evaporative units have a fan inside them that blows air through a wet pad, and this moisture-laden air then continues on into the room. ("Wicking" humidifiers do the same thing, only the air is blown through a moisturized filter instead of a pad.)

2 - Steam. These units, sometimes called vaporizers, boil water and send it into the air as steam.

3 - Warm mist. These units boil water just like steam vaporizers, only the steam is cooled slightly before exiting the unit, resulting in a "mist" of warm water droplets instead of real steam.

4 - Cool mist. These units break up water into tiny droplets and spray a cool mist into the air.

5 - Ultrasonic. These units use high-frequency vibrations to break up water droplets into an extremely fine mist.

A lot of folks buy the wrong type, not realizing how much they differ.

Hopefully they're being bought at Wally World :wink:  Anyway, I'm actually gonna be getting a vaporizer soon to see if I can use the steam to help heat a pile of quick production compost.  Kinda like the one listed on mycotopia...  I'm thinking the heat of the steam should help bring temps up consistently if I can get the timing down right, whatcha think agar?

I just got #4 and #5 for my new 4tier. I had to read quite a few posts to make sure I had the right kind before I bought them. This post could have saved some time hehe. Good info as usual Agar

yeah it seemed like a lot of people here think it's really messy and a pain in the ass to use when i liked it a lot too... only reason i switched to a martha is the labor involved w/ air exchanges using perlite

i had some airpumps goin w/ the perlite but i still dind't think i was getting enough o2 in there
