Find reviews on the best silent humidifiers on the market today. The quietest humidifiers are ultrasonic and we have a list of the best. The closest thing to a silent humidifier is an ultrasonic humidifier.
Ultrasonic humidifiers allow the consumer to enjoy all the benefits of a humidifier without all the noise that can come with the operation of a standard humidifier. These humidifiers are virtually silent and are perfect for use in bedrooms and other places where a quiet environment is highly desirable.
When purchasing an ultrasonic humidifier, look for a model that offers demineralization tablets. These are important because ultrasonic models produce white mineral dust, which can be harmful to the lungs when released into the air. This can be avoided if the consumer always uses distilled water in ultrasonic humidifiers – most of the minerals have already been removed from the distilled water leaving no source for mineral dust.
A great mid-priced ultrasonic humidifier option is the Supentown Ultrasonic Humidifier with Dual Mist. In addition to being nearly silent, this model provides both cool mist and warm mist options. A single 4-liter tank of water will provide up to 10 hours of warm mist humidity or up to 12 hours of cool mist humidity. The ion exchange filter this humidifier comes with helps to reduce minerals in hard water and to prevent white mineral dust. It is a fantastic nearly silent humidifier for any room up to 500 square feet. MSRP is $98.
A less expensive, but still highly rated, option is the Crane Drop Shape Cool Mist Humidifier. This almost silent, nursery friendly humidifier comes in a variety of colors, provides 2.3 gallons of cool mist per day, and sells for about $40.
