Features and principle of work
The minimum allowable moisture content in the residential room is 30% – this parameter is optimal for healthy adults and children, during the exacerbation of viral and bacterial respiratory diseases The moisture content in the air should be increased to 70-80%.
In winter, when heating is running, in the process of intensive returns of heat energy in the air, the amount of moisture is sharply reduced, so household air humidifiers are used in homes and apartments to maintain a favorable microclimate.
Most of the models manufactured by the technology of ultrasound spraying steam.
During the operation of the humidifier of the air from the total weight of water with the help of ultrasonic waves, the smallest solid particles are separated, which form fog under the membrane, from where using the built-in fan and is dealt with air flow through the room. One part of the fog converts and moisturizes the air, and the second – wet film falls on the floor, furniture and other surfaces in the room.
Any Polaris air humidifier is equipped with built-in hygrostat.
It provides effective control and adjustment of the amount of steam produced, since excessive moisturizing also negatively affects the state of the person and sensitive to the moisture of interior items.
Usually, The published pair has a temperature not higher than +40 degrees – This leads to a decrease in temperature in a residential room, so to eliminate an unpleasant effect, many modern models are additionally equipped with the “Warm Couple” option. This ensures water heating immediately before spraying into the room.
Important: It is necessary to remember that the quality of the formed steam directly depends on the chemical composition of water. Any impurities present in it are sprayed into the air and settle on the equipment details, forming a precipitate.
Tap water, in addition to salts, contains bacteria, fungi and other pathogenic microflora, so it is best for an air humidifier to use filtered or bottled water that does not contain anything dangerous to humans.
Advantages and disadvantages
The main advantage of Polaris humidifiers in comparison with other similar models is the ultrasound principle of their work.
Besides, Users allocate the following advantages of this brand:
- The ability to control the speed and intensity of air humidification;
- Some models are complemented by the “Warm Steam” option;
- Low noise during operation;
- Simple control system (sensory / mechanical / with remote control);
- the possibility of inclusion in the design of the air ionizer;
- System of replaceable filters allows you to use crude water.
All minuses mainly relate to the service of household appliances and cleaning it, namely:
- Users without filter models should use only bottled water;
- During the work of the humidifier, it is undesirable to presence in the room of working electrical devices due to the risk of their breakdown;

On the principle of operation, all humidifiers can be divided into 3 main groups: it is ultrasound, steam, and air washing.
Steam models function on the kettle principle. After the device is connected to the network, the water in the container begins to heat up quickly, and then steam out from a special opening outside – it produces humidification and air purification. Some steam models can be used as a inhaler, a special nozzle is included in the kit. Such products are easy to use and affordable.
However, they are unsafe, so they are not allowed to accommodate in children’s rooms. And it is also not recommended to install them in rooms with lots of wooden furniture, paintings and books.

How to choose?
When choosing an air humidifier Polaris The following parameters must be taken into account:
- Installation capacity;
- noise released;
- availability of options;
- management type;
To begin with, it is necessary to estimate the power of the device. So, high-performance aggregates will quickly moisten the air, but at the same time they consume a lot of electrical energy, increasing utility bills. More economical models work slower, but if there is an automatic support option for the required humidity level, it will be much more profitable.
Essential Noise. For children’s rooms and premises, where sick people live, preference is better to give instruments with night mode.
Casse all work ultrasound structures.
Due to various options for the design of POLARIS air humidifiers, you can always choose the appropriate option for rooms in any style. The manufacturer’s lineup is present both classical models of humidifiers and air purifiers in the style of high-tech.
Pay attention to the design dimensions. For small rooms, the optimal models in which the volume of the tank for fluid does not exceed 2-3 liters. For large rooms, you should stop the choice on appliances with a 5-liter tank.
The degree of air pollution is important. If the windows of the processed room goes onto the motorway, as well as if animals live in the house, it is best to choose a polaris air sink. Such models can work in cold mode, while efficiently delay the particles of soot, wool, dust, effectively purify air from pollen plants, dust ticks and other strongest allergens.
If the air indoors are reheated, it is better to give preference to models with the possibility of adjusting the supply of steam, as well as the ionization option.
The price of the device directly depends on the number of additional functions. If you count on simple moisturizing, it does not make sense to buy products with three and more work modes, built-in ionization and aromatization of air. An excess can be an antibacterial coating of a tank, a highlighted display, as well as sensory or remote control.
When buying a humidifier, be sure to consider user reviews – Some models are characterized by an increased level of noise, when working quickly heats up and make an unpleasant smell of plastic. Buyers celebrate the degree of power consumption, pros and cons of design of each specific model, ease of installation and actual time of smooth operation.

If the liquid ends during the operation, the system automatically turns off.
Aromatic oils allowed only in models with a special tank for them.
After each use, it is necessary to clean the equipment, for this it is impossible to use aggressive chemical acid-alkaline solutions, as well as abrasive powders.

Keep in mind: Before cleaning the equipment, it is necessary to turn it off from the electrical current network.
