Here at Miss Misty, we get asked all the time what the difference is between a humidifier and a diffuser. While they may seem similar, they do have very distinct differences that mark them apart from each other.
With that in mind, we thought we delve into a little more detail about those differences so you can make a more informed choice when it comes to purchasing.
What is a Diffuser?
Diffusers come in several different shapes and sizes, and there are different types too. Their primary purpose is to diffuse essential oils into the air for aromatic purposes. Diffusers are distinct from humidifiers because they are designed specifically to mix drops of essential oils with the water in their tanks before distributing it across a room or area within the home.
With regards to types, there are four principal varieties: ultrasonic diffusers, nebulizing diffusers, heat diffusers, and evaporative diffusers. Each of them works in slightly different ways, but they all produce the same outcome, which is dispersing the essential oils into the immediate atmosphere around the diffuser.
What is a Humidifier?
As we’ve explained in a previous blog post, the purpose of a humidifier differs from that of a diffuser. A humidifier is designed to keep a set level of humidity (moisture) in a room or area. Moisturizing the air in a room is needed in dry climates, and in environments where the heating has been turned on to remain warm during the winter.
Dry air can cause all sorts of problems such as dry skin, bacterial and viral problems, and make it more difficult for people to fall asleep. Many people use a humidifier for treating the symptoms of colds, flu, and sinus congestion. In other cases, people use them as a preventative measure against airborne germs, of which they can eradicate up to 85%.
Once again, there are different types, such as: central humidifiers (built-in), ultrasonic humidifiers, impeller humidifiers, evaporator humidifiers, and steam vaporizers. As you’ve probably guessed, they all have different methods for achieving the same overall aim of controlling humidity levels in the air.
Which One is Right for Me?
Both humidifiers and diffusers come with a wide range of features that may be attractive to you. For example, some are just humidifiers, whereas others are dual-purpose and include lighting systems for visual displays. Let’s take a look at what the options are so that you can make the correct choice for your needs.
If you are only interested in controlling humidity levels within your home, then you may be best suited to a humidifier-only model.Humidifiers will not only restore your humidity levels to between 30% and 50%, but they’ll also look amazing with their cute designs, which are perfect for kids (and big kids too!).
