The Honeywell Cool Mist Ultrasonic humidifier can reduce the survival time of flu viruses during cold and flu season

In time for the annual cold and flu season, the Honeywell Cool Mist Ultrasonic humidifier is being launched to help temporarily relieve dry-air discomfort in the home.13-12-2012

KAZ_machine.jpgMaintaining ideal humidity levels in the home is linked to comfort and wellbeing. The innovative Honeywell humidifier creates cool water droplets that are released to moisten surrounding air. This helps keep throat and nasal passages hydrated.

Research suggests that flu germs live longer on surfaces outside the body and spread more easily when the humidity level is low. But by maintaining an indoor humidity level between 40-60%, the survival of flu viruses on surfaces and in the air can be reduced . “Especially during winter, indoor air can be drier than the Sahara desert, dropping the humidity level as low as 10%,” said Victor Camuset from KAZ Europe, marketer of portable humidifiers under the Honeywell brand.

“We suggest using a hygrometer to check the humidity level in the rooms that are used most often in your home and particularly by children. If the reading is below the 40-60% comfort zone, the use of a humidifier is recommended to return essential moisture to dry room air throughout the winter,” commented Victor Camuset.

The Honeywell Cool Mist Ultrasonic humidifier can be used to reduce discomfort by moisturising airway passages, enabling better breathing and a more comfortable sleep2. As the mist is cool there is no risk of potential hot-water injuries and so the Honeywell Cool Mist Ultrasonic humidifier is suitable to use in children’s rooms. KAZ_groupshot.jpg

Not only the family benefits, but indoor plants and furniture also benefit, as correct humidity levels help to return moisture to the air, promoting plant growth and helping to reduce static electricity. Whereas most humidifiers are filled from the bottom and the heavy tank needs to be turned upside down, this humidifier’s patented top-fill design makes refilling straightforward.

Flowing water provides a soothing sound and an antimicrobial treated reservoir keeps the humidifier clean, running for 24 hours after each filling. Its chic overall design blends in with both living and sleeping areas and low energy consumption ensures low maintenance costs.

Price is £ 59.99
