  • 1 min read

Why Humidifiers Matter

Humidifiers offer a balanced approach to comfort and well-being in your home. Read on to find out why a humidifier could be the perfect addition to your home wellness routine this year.

What Makes a Good Humidifier?

As technology evolves, so do the capabilities and features of humidifiers. Let's dive into what makes a humidifier stand out in 2024.

Key Features in 2024's Leading Models

The best humidifiers of 2024 have several features that cater to convenience, efficiency, and wellness:
  • Customizable humidity settings allow users to tailor the moisture output to their specific environment and needs.
  • Built-in sensors that measure and display the current humidity level, providing added convenience by automatically adjusting settings to maintain ideal humidity levels.
  • Easy cleaning and refilling, which reduces the risk of mold and bacteria buildup.
  • Quiet operation, especially important for units used in bedrooms or quiet spaces.
  • Smart features like app integration and compatibility with home automation systems.

Understanding Different Types of Humidifiers

Levoit has developed several humidifier models that all offer different types of humidification, including ultrasonic, evaporative, and hybrid options that offer both cool and warm mist.

Best for Whole-House Humidification

When managing the air quality of an entire home, the best humidifiers can handle a larger area without frequent refills. Levoit’s first evaporative humidifier, the Superior 6000S, combines smart control, easy refills from the sink, and coverage of up to 3,000 ft² for a convenient, effective, mist-free experience. The six-gallon water tank extends the runtime of this humidifier to 72 hours (when run on low speed) and smart controls allow you to adjust the settings, create schedules, connect to voice assistants, and more through the VeSync app. The Superior 6000S also features Dry Mode to extend the life of your filters and Sleep Mode for extra-quiet operation.

Best for a Child’s or Baby’s Room

Cool mist humidifiers do not involve hot water or emit warm steam, which could reduce the risk of accidental burns. Options like the Levoit Classic 200S and Classic 300S are compact enough for a child’s room but still feature smart controls, allowing you to control the humidifier through the VeSync app—turning it on or off, adjusting humidity level, and dimming the nightlight (in the 300S) without waking your little ones.

As always, safety is paramount, so humidifiers should be placed out of reach of children and maintained regularly to prevent microbial growth.

Best for Cold Climates and Winter Months

For colder weather, we recommend the Levoit LV600S Smart Hybrid Ultrasonic Humidifier, which gives you the option of both cool mist and warm mist. Warm vapor can add a bit of heat to the room, making this humidifier a great option in colder climates or during winter months.

Best for Warm, Dry Climates

While we always welcome a little fun in the sun, dry weather can be rough on your skin, your energy levels, and your general wellness. Adding a humidifier to your space can help you create a comfortable indoor atmosphere. The Levoit OasisMist® 1000S Smart Ultrasonic Cool Mist Tower Humidifier restores dry air in extra-large spaces and has a runtime of up to 100 hours.

Best for Plant Parents

If you’ve been growing an indoor plant collection at home, you may have seen leaves browning or curling up, even with proper sunlight and water. This is likely because our homes could lack the moisture that plants need to “breathe” through their leaves, and increasing the humidity, or the amount of water vapor in the air, can greatly benefit your plants. With the Levoit OasisMist® 450S Smart Humidifier synced to the Vesync app, you can turn your home into your own personal greenhouse. The Plant Care Toolkit in the VeSync app offers automated scheduling, plant species identification, watering schedules, fertilizing schedules, and care reminders to help your plants thrive—no green thumb required.

Maintenance Tips

Proper maintenance is crucial for ensuring the longevity and effectiveness of your humidifier. Regular cleaning is necessary to prevent mold and bacteria growth. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and use the recommended products to avoid damaging the humidifier. Changing filters as required (for models that use them) and using distilled or demineralized water can help minimize mineral buildup and prolong the life of the humidifier. Additionally, it's advisable to empty, rinse, and dry the tank daily, especially in models where water stands still.

Each type of humidifier—ultrasonic, evaporative, and hybrid—offers unique advantages tailored to different needs. And with Levoit’s 30-day money back guarantee, 2-year limited warranty, and free shipping, you can breathe a bit easier knowing you made the right choice.
