My humidifier recommendation

February 15, 2011

I have had many people ask me what humidifier we use in our daughter’s room, so I thought I would share it here.  We use the Air-O-Swiss 7135 Digital – and have gotten great use out of it – especially over the last 2 weeks when Radha has had two really bad colds back to back (spending most of tonight in her room, holding her upright).

Anyways, the humidifier is definitely on the more pricey side, but it is very reliable, stays clean (it has an ionic silver stick) and can be used in a large room. It is quiet, and uses ultrasonic humidification, so as soon as you plug it in and put water in it, it is producing mist. We have been using it for 2 years now and are still very happy with it. In fact, we haven’t had any problems with it, which is more than I can say for the less expensive, store bought humidifiers that we have in our master bedroom (barely lasts through one season). The one thing you should keep in mind is that you need to elevate the humidifier off the ground about 1 foot to keep the surrounding ground dry. We have used it in our daughter’s room – both old with hard wood floor and new with carpet, and haven’t had any complaints.

As far as cleaning goes, the ionic silver stick keeps the water from getting gross (all the other humidifiers I have used inevitably start getting a nasty film on them), but you do still need to clean it with a demineralization cleaning packet every so often.  The humidifier has a cleaning light to let yo uknow when it needs to be cleaned.  We usually have at least a 1 month response time to this light, and it still seems to be working just fine!
