There are many benefits to owning a humidifier especially for those who live in particularly dry climates and are allergic to pollutants in the air. It not only increases the relative humidity to a more comfortable level but also purifies the air. A filterless humidifier provides the same function of a typical humidifier but does not require a replacement filter. This will save time and money associated with buying and installing a replacement filter.
The great thing about a humidifier is that it eliminates many of the problems associated with dryness in the air. Dry air can cause nose bleeds and irritation in the skin. The humidifier also purifies the air making it less of an issue for people with asthma, respiratory conditions or allergies to pollen and dust. It is also believed that germs are spread more efficiently through dry air making it easier to catch a cold or flu.
While any humidifier will help address these problems, there is maintenance required in cleaning the device and replacing the filter regularly. The frequency of replacement depends on the intensity of use. A filterless humidifier on the other hand eliminates this need for a replacement filter. There is a grid that can easily be removed and wiped clean so it is ready to continue operation with minimal downtime.
Instead of passing air through a traditional filter, the filterless humidifier uses an electrostatic charge to separate particles from the air. As the air enters the device, the particles receive an electric charge. The grid is oppositely charged so the air passes freely through the machine while the particles stick to the grid.
If you are looking for a low maintenance humidifier system, it will certainly be worth your while to consider a filterless humidifier. There are many brands available and a quick online search will reveal customer reviews of some of the top brand names. Choosing a reputable manufacturer will increase the chance of getting the best quality for your money.
