Re: Whisc is best: Humidifiers or Air Purifiers?

I would think that since you are in MS, winter would be the time you'd need it the most.
I get so humid in the summer there.

Re: Which is best: Humidifiers or Air Purifiers?

Only use it when the air is dry. Human lungs work best between 30 and 50% humidity, some weather sites have a calculator to figure out your indoor humidity. If you have issues with indoor air in winter, use a humidifier. If you have trouble with pollution or allergens, use a filter.
