What is the best water for humidifier? Can tap water be used for humidifier

Humidifier is a necessary anti drying artifact in every home, but some friends who use humidifier for the first time may not know what water to put in the humidifier. Some people even put tap water directly. Here is what water to put in the humidifier:

It is best to use distilled water with less impurities, which can reduce the damage to the lung and respiratory system. Many people want the air to be fresher, so add some perfume or essential oil to the humidifier, which is very unsuitable. Because these chemicals containing aromatics and preservatives are designed to contact human skin rather than directly contact human organs, it is best not to take risks. If you have to use a kind of water and make them enter the lungs through ultrasonic atomization, it is better to use water without impurities. Relatively speaking, distilled water is an ideal water. However, indoor humidification is not easy to be excessive and for a long time.

If you have a water well in your home, the water well water is better. After all, the water well water is groundwater and pollution-free. It is healthier to use it as an air humidifier. If friends are restricted due to various conditions, tap water is OK, but you need to boil the tap water and use it after cooling. Of course, what kind of water the humidifier uses depends on the situation. There are water purification devices in many humidifier water tanks, but they are all like goods with little effect. Instead, it breeds bacteria.

The humidifier cannot directly add tap water. Firstly, tap water contains a variety of minerals, which will damage the evaporator of the humidifier, and the water alkali contained in it will also affect its service life. In addition, tap water contains a certain amount of chlorine atoms and microorganisms, which may be blown into the air with water mist to cause pollution. The hardness of tap water in some communities is high. The water mist ejected by the humidifier contains calcium and magnesium ions, which will produce white powder, which will not only pollute the indoor air, but also damage the paint on the surface of furniture and floor, affect the gloss and cause permanent damage.

Obviously, adding tap water has many hazards, so friends who buy humidifiers should remember not to add tap water directly. Some families will add aromatics to the water, which is also inappropriate. Because the volatile organic compounds contained in aromatics are easy to cause respiratory diseases, especially for people with a history of respiratory allergy, a few drops of essential oil can be added appropriately. The water injected into the humidifier is preferably distilled water or cold boiled water, because after treatment, the water contains less impurities, and people will not cause respiratory discomfort due to inhalation of impurities.
