Having these problem during the always cold weather? Don’t worry! I will give you my recommended hygrometer and humidifier I personally use to save me during this winter season.
It is getting chilly these days and many of us suffer from dry cough, cracked lip and dry skin. What’s worse is when our kids or babies experience these winter problem. As remedies: we often use lip balms, body and hand lotions and drink lots of water but only few of us know the importance of humidification.
During winter, the humidity drops because dry cold air cannot hold moisture. Then, we use heater at home which increases air temperature thus further reducing the humidity.
Importance of Humidification
Moisture in the air keeps our nose and throat healthy. Dryness may cause irritation, proneness to wound and bleeding and makes the natural filtration less effective. One example is in the hospital setting, where people receives humidified oxygen to prevent those things from happening.
I’m currently using VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier and I’m so satisfied with it. I first saw it at my friend’s flat and thought it was a baby bottle steriliser because of its design. Being satisfied after few hours of experience, I bought one for myself. To keep it straight to the point, these are the things I like with this humidifier:
- Auto-off feature when water run out
- Massive 4 litre capacity, more than enough for overnight humidification
- Cost less compare to other expensive brands
- Transparent so you can monitor the water level
- Big size make it easier to clean inside
And the thing I don’t like is it got a small crack on the top when I accidentally dropped it. However the crack didn’t affect its function and the water is not leaking. I was just so careless – oh dear!
Hygrometer and Humidifier
My mistake is I only purchase a humidifier and use it in my room without knowing if I need it in the first place. Before buying a humidifier, you must have a hygrometer to measure the current humidity inside your flat or room. In terms of humidity, the recommended during winter is between 45% and 55% (Other seasons is between 50% to 55%).
I highly recommend ThermoPro TP50 Room Thermometer because it is affordable and so far reliable. Aside from measuring humidity, it also measures the room temperature. In Addition to that, the screen displays the highest and the lowest recorded humidity and temperature of your room.
This cute gadget uses one AAA battery and it comes with a stand. It also has a magnet at the back so you can also pop it on the fridge. What makes it more awesome is you can also have 3 years extended warranty for free when you register it on their Official Website.
So that’s all folks! I hope I helped you to have a lovely day inside your flat during winter season. x
