Large rooms require large air vaporizers to provide the misting effect. Many household humidifiers require a large tank and powerful pump to circulate the moisture into the air. While some use the power of the pump, some use advanced technology such as rotary diffuser for the same function. Now, the latter will cost you a little more but the efficiency of humidification is better. So, what can you expect from humidifiers large room vaporizers if you plan to purchase one?
But before we begin to list down the features to expect, you must understand that every brand uses unique technology to create mist and spray into the air. So, the space coverage, refilling time, unit consumption, and other parameters may vary even when the pump specifications are the same. We will discuss this in detail in our next section.
Features to expect from large room vaporizers
Large room air humidifiers usually have the following features in common. While different brands modify the features to match their uniqueness, the working utility is similar.
- Large tank – every air vaporizer must have a large tank for storing water to be sprayed by the pump. If you are going for a small tank to cater to moisturizing the large room, you will have to refill the tank every other night. The usual capacity ranges from 4-liter to 6-liter.
- Diffuser and rotary pump – Diffusers are nozzles that spray the water collected from the tank in an atomized form. This makes the air moist but not wet enough to see water stains on the walls or floors.
- Filters – Water filters are essential parts of any humidifier’s large room vaporizers so that the pump doesn’t choke on any particulate matter like dust, waste, insects, or other foreign particles.
- Powerful pump – If you have a job to move a huge block of wood, you will probably assign it to the strongest person in the room. The same is the case with the pumps in air humidifiers. Based on the size of the room and area coverage, powerful pumps are selected.
Understanding space coverage Technology
It may be quite handy to get a few tips on how to calculate the area coverage. Area coverage is the parameter based on which the pump’s strength is selected. If your room is very large and you intend to place the humidifier in a corner, then you must lookout for a humidifier with an atomizer that can spread out the mist at least two times your room size. Otherwise, you will find corners of your room having dry air. You can also check out several space coverage calculators online to find the perfect settings for your humidifier.
