Fall is here, which means that winter is just around the corner! Soon, we’ll be turning on the furnace, which creates dry air. I suffer from dry skin and eczema due to the cold, winter months, and a dry home doesn’t help.

We also find our home is dry during cold season, and no matter whether we use a humidifier with our furnace system, our bedrooms are still dry. We usually wake up with stuffy noses from the dry air, and sinus-related issues. The change in seasons also marks the start of cold and flu season, and if you are an allergy sufferer, you feel worse.

So when Dyson asked my family to test the Dyson Humidifier, I jumped at the chance.

Some humidifiers actually create bacteria because of the water, and then spread it around your home, causing illness.  Dyson has created a humidifier that stops the breeding of bacteria before it can spread.

Dyson Humidifier kills 99 per cent of bacteria with its Air Multiplier™ and its patented ultraviolet cleansing technology. The water in the tank is exposed to an ultraviolet light that destroys almost all of the bacteria that lurks there.

Assembling the Dyson Humidifier was easy. Once assembled, the Dyson Humidifier was really easy to use. The remote control is user-friendly, and the settings are simple. You can choose whether or not you’d like the machine to emit mist, or no mist at all. There is also an auto timer, which is helpful during the night – in increments of 15 minutes, and then every hour. But if you forget to use the timer, the unit will automatically shut down after 18-hours of continuous use.

Also, the humidifier wasn’t loud during the night. I’ve kept the humidifier running on low, at a 1 or 2 when the kids are sleeping. At a higher setting if used during the day, it does run louder but not excessively.

Dyson’s Intelligent Climate Control allows us to control the feel of the room this machine was operating in. The unit is great at measuring temperature and humidity, and accurately controlling the climate.

Since this humidifier can also be used as a fan, it would be great to use during the summer months because our second level tends to be warmer than the first.

Air Multiplier™ technology also allows for the air it created to be dispersed evenly around a room. You’ll feel it more in a smaller space such as a bedroom, but you can also notice a difference in a larger area like a family room.

If you suffer from dry air, sinus issues, dry skin and/or eczema, and allergies, or are prone to  catching the cold or flu, the Dyson Humidifier would be a wonderful addition to your home.
