Why choose Vorando?
There are a lot of brands to consider when purchasing a humidifier. Unfortunately, not all are the same. Safe yourself some confusion and go with a brand that has proven itself in the humidifier space. Vornado began its origins in the 1920s as the founder began research on airplane design. Over time, new technology was created that is now the basis for the modern-day Vorando company.
Features to consider while choosing a Vornado humidifier
Within the category of Vornado humidifiers, there are a lot of options. To help you decide which Vornado model will work best for you, understanding the various features available will help narrow down the search.
There are two types of Vornado humidifiers: cool mist and warm mist. What this means is that while all humidifiers produce a mist with moist air, only some will have the option of choosing between cool or warm temperature.
Most Vornado humidifiers only allow you to produce cool mist. This is usually for a safety reason; after all, steam can burn. However, there is one model on our list, the Vornado Element A2, which allows you to select either cool or warm mist. Sometimes, if you are sick, warm mist is exactly what you need to soothe your sore throat or achy joints.
If you do choose a warm mist option, be sure to keep it out of reach of children. While the temperature should remain just nice and warm, you can never be too careful when little fingers are involved.
The coverage area of a humidifier refers to how large a room the humidifier will be able to service. In this case, you don’t want to just automatically choose the largest coverage area. Remember: a larger coverage area can often mean a larger price point. So, if you just need a humidifier for a single room, or even just a small apartment, chances are you can find a smaller machine at a more budget-friendly price.
Water tank capacity
When it comes to humidifiers, the water tank capacity refers to how much water a tank can hold. The larger the water tank capacity, the longer the humidifier can run before needing to be refilled. A lot of factors come into the refill time, however, so it isn’t as straightforward of having a larger tank capacity to lessen the number of refills. How often you use your humidifier and at what strength your run it will determine how much water you go through.
If you don’t plan on using your humidifier very often or don’t mind the task of refilling your water tank, the Vornado EV100 and Vornado UH100 are your best options with 1-gallon water tanks. However, if you dread another daily chore, then be sure to check out the Vornado Evap40. It has an incredible four-gallon water tank, so will need to be refilled a lot less often.
Water tank capacity and runtime are usually linked. Basically, the more water there is, the longer a humidifier can run for. All of the products on our list can last for at least 12 hours. This is perfect as chances are, you’ll want to have your humidifier on at night. If you are really concerned about runtime, the Vornado Evap40, Vornado EVDC500, Vornado EV100 are all products that will go for 24 hours.
Dimensions and weight
Some humidifiers can be placed on the top of a dresser. Others can only be housed on the floor. Before you purchase your new Vornado humidifier, measure the area you want it to be in. Be sure to pay attention to all the dimensions, including height, so you can decide beforehand where you want your humidifier to be. All of the products on our list are very different in size, so you may need a few location options.
Want to purchase a new Vornado humidifier, but aren’t sure if you have the technical know-how to deal with any unexpected issues? Thankfully, Vornado, as a company has a great warranty program.
All of the humidifiers on our list come with an impressive five-year warranty. And, if you do have any issues, the customer service is unparalleled. That’s right – you can purchase a new Vornado humidifier and know that your investment will last you a long while.
Gone are the days of basic humidifiers. Instead, these machines come equipped with a lot of extra features. Some, like the Vornado Element A2, allows you to diffuse essential oils. Others, like the Vornado Evap3, has LED lights that give a soothing night atmosphere. Be sure to check out the features available and see if they are needed in your new purchase.
How to keep your Vornado humidifier in its best condition
Humidifiers need water to work, and stagnant water can cause a lot of complications. Make it a habit to clean your Vornado humidifier every week. This includes emptying the water and checking the filter. Once a month, take apart your humidifier and give it a thorough cleaning with warm soapy water. Let all the parts air-dry before reassembling the machine.
