If you want a humidifier that is quiet and does not present a risk of scalding, then you must get an ultrasonic humidifier.
Unlike the evaporative type, an ultrasonic humidifier does not need to boil the water in order to produce the mist. Instead it uses high-frequency sound vibrations in order to expel extra fine water mist into the air and thus add more humidity and moisture.
Most ultrasonic humidifiers do not use a filter and, as a side effect, often produce white powder that settles on the furnishings around the room. However, if you need a humidifier that is easier to use and maintain, the ultrasonic kind is your best bet.
Can’t decide on the ultrasonic humidifier brand to get? You should consider the TaoTronics Ultrasonic Humidifier.

The TaoTronics Ultrasonic Humidifier Cool Mist is a well-made, solid and sturdy machine that gives hours and hours of humidity that is helpful in avoiding cold symptoms, dry skin and the spread of dust mites and other particles as such.
Tall and wide, the humidifier has a solid footprint even if it takes up less space on your bedside table or kitchen counter.
The water tank is easy to fill and very convenient to carry thanks to the water tank handle. Setting up and operating it for the first time is also hassle-free and intuitive.
The LED-lit controls are easy to understand and can be turned off so as not to disturb sleeping, especially for users who do not like sleeping with some light on.
If you are a light sleeper, this humidifier is your premium choice because it is 99% silent. It gives you no fuss and no worries – not even the white dust or powder that is characteristic of hard water that is found in most households, thanks to the ceramic filter.
The humidifier provides optimum air flow and humidity level that can be gained through the adjustable settings. That being said, the humidifier greatly reduces snoring and promotes good sleep throughout the night while combating the symptoms of cold and flu and the effects of dry air on the skin.
Aside from the obvious benefits you get from an effective humidifier, the Taotronics Ultrasonic Cool Mist humidifier also serves as a good piece of decoration. The pleasant combination of blue and white plus the night light makes a tasteful addition to the bedroom.
The humidifier has two parts, the base and the water tank. As mentioned above, it is very easy to carry the water tank to the sink and fill it with water.
Cleaning is very easy, too – just use a bit of vinegar to swish around the water tank and the base. The unit also comes with a brush that makes cleaning easier.
Leaking is one of the complaints about this humidifier, but this could be attributed to improper use of the machine. For one thing, you are not supposed to carry the whole unit while it is filled with water, which is why you detach the water tank and bring it to the sink for refilling.
Otherwise, the unit could just be defective, and the manufacturers would be happy to replace it or refund you the cost as long as it is within the warranty.
Another major complaint is the settling of white dust or white powder in the room. This is a usual complaint, but it must be understood that this is not a problem with the humidifier but with the kind of water you use with the appliance.
Hard water contains minerals that can manifest as white dust that settles on furniture around the humidifier.
Like any other machine, the Taotronics Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier has advantages and disadvantages, but in this case the benefits clearly outweigh the setbacks. Get yourself a TaoTronics humidifier and give yourself and your family the kind of indoor air you need.
