Combat dry, stuffy air in your office breakroom, often caused by heaters especially during severe winter months, with an air humidifier, which works by spraying mist directly into the air to restore proper moisture levels. Make sure employees can breathe comfortably and prevent irritated nasal passages and dry, chapped lips with humidifiers that are designed to work in a variety of room sizes. For additional air concerns, consider purchasing a fan to keep air circulating or an air purifier to make sure air is clean.
Whether the workday lasts 8 hours or the office runs 24/7, humidifiers feature a variety of tank sizes to run continuously for a few hours or all day. Tanks that hold more water run longer before having to be refilled. Look for humidifiers with visible water windows, so it's easy to tell when the tank is running low. Better yet, choose a humidifier with an auto shutoff and indicator alert, which make it evident when more water needs to be added.
Many humidifiers come equip with misters that will either dispel cool or warm mist. A cool mist humidifier will release room-temperature mist while warm misters will boil the water before releasing it. Depending on the current season, weather and climate, the amount and type of moisture that needs to be added to the air will fluctuate. Humidifiers with variable mist control make it easy to regulate a room's humidity level for maximum breathing comfort. A directional mist outlet enables a user to point outputted mist in a specific direction. Some humidifiers even offer the option to choose between cool or warm moisture.
Cold and flu season is a nightmare for offices. Consider purchasing an air humidifier that accepts medicinal tablets for dispersing medicated vapor into the air, helping to soothe irritated nasal and throat membranes. Humidifiers that feature a place to insert aromatherapy tablets diffuse gentle, pleasing scents into the breakroom to help cover up smelly food and cooking odors.
