How Stadler Form Humidifiers Help
When temperatures dip, people begin using their heating systems. While some systems will dry homes out more than others, all of them, LP, natural gas, wood, coal, and electric dry homes out. This can mean waking up with a stuffy, dry nose, chapped lips, dry patching skin, aggravated eczema, or dried out, painful sinuses. Chronically dry conditions can also potentially inhibit the ability of the immune system. As the first line of defense, mucous membranes must remain moist to effectively trap dirt and particles before they make their way deep into your airways. So when they dry, they can lose some of their ability to filter out and trap particles.
In addition to effects on the human body, when the relative humidity in your home dips too low, this can actually cause wood trim and furniture to crack or split, and less moisture in the air means particles tend to stay suspended in the air. Not encumbered by moisture and settling to the floor, things like house dust remain airborne and are more easily inhaled.
From asthma and eczema to allergies, low relative humidity can have a negative impact and cause conditions to worsen - a dry cough from asthmatics, itchy skin of those with eczema and sneezing or sinus pain for those with allergies. Each of these winter time problems can be helped with the use of a humidifier. Humidifiers put much needed moisture back into the dry air in your home. Safely and effectively, humidifiers can bring comfort back and reduce symptoms from dry, winter air.
Types of Stadler Form Humidifiers
Ultrasonic humidifiers have steadily gained popularity since they were first created. Not only are they safer than older, boiler-style humidifiers, but they are also extremely efficient and virtually silent. Most of the time you cannot even tell they are running except for the stream of mist coming out of the top. Stadler Form ultrasonic humidifiers follow this path, with an internal diaphragm that vibrates so rapidly that it literally turns liquid water into water vapor.
Like other ultrasonics, the Stadler models offer a variety of convenient digital features like a soft touch controls, LCD Display, built-in hygrostat, and a sleep mode. Additionally, these models use a patented Ionic Silver Cube to inhibit the growth of mold and microbes as well as a demineralization cartridge to remove excess mineral content in the water. Extremely efficient, this type of humidifier works well in the most severe conditions and can put 2-3 gallons of moisture back into the air in your home.
Evaporative models like the Oskar are a favorite among many people, for their ease of use and humidifying ability. This type of room humidifier uses a built-in fan and evaporative wick/filter that draws moisture up (capillary action) then disperses it throughout the home. Evaporative humidifiers are surprisingly simple but efficient in that the humidity level will rise and fall with the temperature. Additionally, as the drier air passes through the machine, the filters can actually retain some particles. While it will not replace an air purifier, in this small way, it helps keep your indoor air cleaner.
Choosing the model that is right for you involves weighing and balancing several factors, ease of use, style of humidification, replacement parts cost, where the humidifier will be used, and initial price. No matter which model you select, each Stadler Form humidifier will deliver soothing moisture back to your home.
Stadler Form Humidifier Hygiene
Keeping your humidifier operating at its best does require a little maintenance, and with an appliance that can contain standing water, there should be measures taken to ensure the water is clean and free of microbes. On the first front, cleanliness, the Stadler Form humidifiers use a couple different devices to keep mineral content out of the moisture being put back into the air in your home. For evaporative models, like the Oskar, evaporative filters or wicks help to trap mineral content. Just by the evaporative nature of these humidifiers, mineral content will often settle in the basin where it can be easily removed with a descaling agent or a simple mix of vinegar and water. With ultrasonic models, like the Hera or Anton, a demineralization cartridge neutralizes mineral content. Just remember that with this type of humidifier, you'll want to avoid using softened water as it can cause problems. For the ultrasonic models it is best to use regular, unsoftened, tap water or avoid the demineralization cartridge all together and go with distilled water.
To help keep all of their humidifiers free of microbes and germs that can proliferate in standing water, Stadler For humidifiers by Swizz Style use an Ionic Silver Cube. This tiny device emits silver ions that are a natural antimicrobial agent. Replacing this cube annually can help ensure germs or pathogens never make it into the soothing mist.
