Find out the difference between a humidifier and a vaporizer and know about their pros & cons.

Humidifier Versus Vaporizer

There is a wide range of vaporizers and humidifiers available today in the market. But questions begin to crop up in our minds as to which one is a better product and how do you distinguish one product from another. Here, in this article, we will try to solve all of your problems.
Humidity helps to relieve your colds if you are suffering from it. In order to make breathing easier, you need to add some moisture to the air which will loosen your nose. Your nose gets congested because a dry nasal passage is more prone to acquiring more bacteria than if it is moist. In the same way, if you have a dry house, you are more prone to dry and itchy skin and even nosebleeds.
A humidifier and a vaporizer basically do the same job, i.e., to add humidity. A humidifier emits cool moisture into the air while a vaporizer uses boiled water to release warm moisture. A disadvantage of a humidifier is that several bacteria and molds are likely to spread in the room because the water is not boiled. By using distilled water you can actually remedy this problem. Getting a humidifier will be much more cooler and refreshing if you live in a place where the temperature is generally warm.
One important point you should always keep in mind is it doesn’t matter if you get a humidifier or a vaporizer; you need to keep it as clean as possible. Also, see to it that the water is changed daily and you strictly adhere to the cleaning instructions. You need to be careful because you don't want to put too much humidity in the air since too much humidity can breed bacteria, dust mites, etc.

The final choice rests on you, whether you want to get a vaporizer or a humidifier. Understanding the difference between the two can help you make a wise decision.
