Humidifier vs. Vaporizer

We're quickly approaching flu season, and with the winter months approaching, the air is starting to turn dry and brittle.

As I'm sure most of you have heard at one point in time from your Doctor or maybe even a family member, humidifiers and vaporizers are great!

Both add humidity into the air, which makes for easier breathing.  It's perfect to use for all age groups, but I especially wanted to point out how fantastic they are if you have a sick infant or toddler at home.

More times than not, children in this age bracket are unable to take medication because of age limits, so humidifiers and vaporizers are truly great home remedies!! If you're like me, you consider them to be a God send! 

So...My question is - Do you use a humidifier or vaporizer to add moisture into the air? Do you have a preferred method?

As I've asked this question to several of my friends and family over the course of the last several months, I've really noticed that it's quite the controversy! You're either Pro Humidifier or Pro Vaporizer.  They're really doesn't seem to be any common ground. 

Which are you?
Why is that??

School me.  I want to learn!

I'm sure I don't need to put the fine print here, as all my readers are intelligent and have plenty of common sense, but as a precautionary - Please talk to your doctor 1st before using a new product.  They have far more knowledge than I or the web can provide to you and have the best advice for what is best suited for you and your family.

  1. Memah says...depends on the illness involved. Humidifer puts out cool soothing mist that keeps you from drying out too much and a vaporizor puts out warm mist that relieves bronchial tubes and keeps airway moist. Both a must havebut I am more preventative so use humidifier. If yoy don't have central heat, humidifiers are wonderful but would use a vaporizor in cold months.
