Top Five HumidifiersWith humidifier season fully upon us, we've put together our Top Five Humidifiers lists for each of our categories. A humidifier is an important tool for people to relieve the symptoms of dry indoor air that can aggravate asthma and eczema and overall, increase house dust in your home. In each category, we've weighed a variety of factors included performance, reliability, price, features, ease-of-use and aesthetic appeal. So whether you're looking for a true warm mist humidifier, something lightweight that travels easily or a dependable ultrasonic humidifier we've tested and ranked each of our models and compiled our top five list for each category.

The most popular humidifier category is ultrasonic humidifiers. The appeal of ultrasonic humidifiers starts with their ability to put a lot of moisture back in air very quickly and often ends with them being some of the absolute quietest humidifiers available.

Warm mist humidifiers are a favorite not only for the comforting warm steam they emit but also because many offer the ability to use a medicine cup or essential oils.

As the years have passed, some manufacturers have overcome this problem and offer true warm mist without the potential problems.
