A portable humidifier is an electric device that adds moisture to the air to raise humidity levels in a space or structure. It helps prevent dryness, which irritates or inflames the skin, and it relieves cold and flu symptoms, providing relief to those who have sinus congestion, nose bleeding, and chapped lips. As a result, portable humidifiers are frequently incorporated into medical ventilators to enhance the air quality. Portable humidifiers are installed in homes, corporate offices, large shopping centers, business buildings, data centers, concert venues, museums, and art galleries. People frequently live in places where dry air is present without realizing the potential harm to their health. The presence of dry air in an office setting or homes has a negative effect on the skin, hair, sinuses, and the throat. Portable humidifiers help to resolve these issues. In portable humidifiers, high-frequency waves are used to reduce the dryness of the environment. The metal diaphragm in the portable humidifier produces these waves. The humidifier has a water reservoir inside it. High-frequency waves vibrate the water, which causes the water in the reservoir to break up into tiny particles, producing vapor and mist. The portable humidifier is segmented into two types: Cool Mist Humidifier: Cool mist humidifiers are ideal for use during warm weather and in areas with warm climate. Warm Mist Humidifier: Warm mist humidifiers help in easing symptoms of cold or allergies, such as congestion.
