We have discussed the types of humidifiers that are available, let’s talk about the size of the humidifier you should choose.

To begin with, you need to decide the amount of space you need to cover in a room and how many rooms too.

There are three (3) categories of humidifiers specific to the area you need to cover in your room.


1. Portable Humidifiers

2. Room Humidifiers

3. Whole-house Humidifiers models

Portable Humidifiers

A perfect example will be the Portable Mini Travel Humidifier. Not only are they cheap, but also the best option for a small room like your bedroom. However, they require constant maintenance to fill the water compartment.

The best part is, they’re your go-to plan if you want to travel with a humidifier. You could use it hitch-free in your hotel room.

Room Humidifiers

Unlike the portable humidifiers, these room humidifiers give you a lot of options to take from. You could humidify a small or large room with a square foot of 650-1200 feet.

In this category, you have the ultrasonic warm and cool humidifier, ultrasonic cool mist humidifier, and the air washers.

Whole-house Humidifiers

For areas with 1700 to 2500 square feet, this is our recommendation. You must ensure that there are open doorways for the humidified air to circulate freely.

For the humidifier that is good for your large areas, it will be the evaporative cool mist humidifier. Consequently, you need to know that they’re quite noisier than their counterparts—warm and cool mist humidifier.

On the other hand, the warm and cool mist humidifiers are quieter and easier to clean, but expensive to maintain.

So, our advice? Choose according to your preference.
