With the advent of cold weather and the advent of heating, in ordinary apartments the air becomes very dry. To deal with this problem, many people buy humidifiers. But as a rule, people take ultrasonic humidifiers. And then they face many shortcomings of these humidifiers. White coating, unpleasant odor, long moisturizing. And by the way, there is another type of air humidifiers, which not only humidify the air in the room, but also wash this same air. As the name implies, such devices are called air washers.
How does an ultrasonic humidifier work? Water, with the help of a special element, is whipped into a kind of steam and thrown into the air. This method allows you to evaporate a large amount of water in a short time, but at the same time, all the elements and substances in the water are also in the air, and then they settle in the form of white dust on all the furniture in the apartment. I think many people are familiar with this problem.
How does an air washer work? Water is in the bowl along with special disks. The disks spin and are constantly washed, and from above, air is blown onto the disks with the help of a fan. Together with air, dust and small particles from the air get on the discs, settle on wet discs and are washed off with water. And the air is already coming out clean, at the same time taking with it some of the moisture that evaporates naturally. Thus, the air is cleaned and humidified, which is very useful.
What type of humidifier to choose, everyone decides for himself. The advantages of ultrasonic humidifiers are availability and low price. I mentioned the cons above. But for air washers, the price is already a minus. Air washers are always expensive. Although recently several offers from Xiaomi have appeared on the market, which I want to talk about. In fact, many other manufacturers make and sell air washers, but it so happened that it is the Xiaomi options on the market that are among the most affordable. I will tell about them.
Xiaomi humidifier is a small box that contains a fan, evaporative discs, a water tank and a smart filling. The device supports connection to Xiaomi smart home, can measure air temperature and humidity, can turn on and off according to a schedule, and most importantly, it has several operating modes that differ in the amount of air being driven and the amount of moisture evaporated. The device is controlled either through the smart home application, or using two touch buttons on the end of the device.
Xiaomi humidifier 2
The second version of the air washer differs from the previous version by the presence of a clear display, the use of plastic with the addition of antibacterial additives and the presence of additional modes. Otherwise, this is the same sink as the previous version. Able to evaporate up to 260 ml of water per hour. It seems that this is not so much, but in a day it is already more than 6 liters of water. Which are very necessary in the air.
MI Smart Evaporative Humidifier
XIAOMI Evaporative Humidifier is not really an air washer, it is a water filter. The air is driven through the water filter and then evaporated with the help of an ultrasonic evaporator. Unlike conventional ultrasonic evaporators, there is a purification of the incoming air flow. This gives more effective hydration. It also removes dust and, for example, pollen particles from the incoming air. For allergy sufferers, such a device will obviously not be superfluous.
Deerma Non-fog Humidifier CT500
Another device for cleaning and humidifying the air with water. Although this is not exactly Xiaomi, but I decided to add it to the selection. Since it is a product from the Xiaomi ecosystem. In Deerma Non-fog Humidifier, air passing through a wet filter gets rid of dust, saturated with moisture and cools. The device can evaporate up to 0.5 liters of water per hour, which is suitable for residential and other premises. The device has 6 operating modes, is controlled via an application, can track the level of moisture in the air and will fit very well into the design of any home. This is a great option for those who want to keep the air level in their apartment within comfort limits.
Air Humidifier Misou MS5800 Evaporation
Another option for a water filter for air. Nozzle Misou MS5800 Evaporation. This nozzle is placed on the Xiaomi Mijia Air Purifier Pro air filter as an additional option. The air is first filtered, and then it is already driven through the nozzle, saturated with water and cleaned of smoke, odor and other impurities. In the CIS countries, this nozzle is not very common, but in Asian countries it is quite popular and well-known. I think that over time, our compatriots will also appreciate the convenience.
There are many instructions on the Internet for the independent manufacture of filters and air washers, and they have the right to life. But a factory solution will always work and look better. Therefore, it is better not to waste time, but to buy a ready-made solution. Moreover, Xiaomi offers its options at an affordable price. This is especially noticeable if you compare the offers from Xiaomi with options from Boneco, Winia and Venta. But you can save even more if you buy air washers during the Black Friday sale. With valid coupons, you can get a small, but discount. And such a purchase will please even more.
