Which is better/cleaner/safer:

A room or whole house humidifier OR
One that is placed on the forced air furnace?

The apartment is extremely dry......and a lot of sinus problems arise.
Thanks

room or furnace humidifier for your home
by: Lisa - site expert

Hi!
I have both in my home and generally prefer the room humidifier. I find it's still quite dry with only the furnace humidifier because it only humidifies when the furnace runs. A room humidifier will keep the humidity at a good level all the time.
I use my Vornado evaporative humidifier all winter long and it does well in about 900 sq ft in my home.
