Young couple sitting on couch - What are steam humidifiers?Steam humidifiers are an effective solution for combatting dry winter air, but what do they do, and how do you use them? Simply put, steam humidifiers are devices that add moisture to the air in your home by releasing steam. They can be integrated with your central HVAC system or serve as a portable appliance you can place in any room.  

How do Steam Humidifiers Work? 

Steam humidifiers are used to add moisture to indoor air and may be installed in your home’s HVAC system. When the humidity level in your home falls below a certain threshold, the humidifier is activated, and water is boiled in a canister. The steam produced by boiling the water is then released into your home’s ductwork, mixing with the dry air and increasing the overall humidity level. 

One of the advantages of steam humidifiers is that they can produce a high level of humidity quickly, making them a good option for homes in very dry climates. Additionally, because they use boiling water to produce steam, they are effective at killing bacteria and other pathogens before releasing moisture into the air.
