10 Best Misting Humidifiers
for December 2022

Humidifiers come in all shapes and sizes, from tabletop models to giant floor models, and both portable and desktop models. While humidifiers help add moisture to dry air, they can also raise humidity levels in the room, which can be helpful during the winter when heaters dry out the air. During summer months, it can also help combat dry air, which can make your skin itchy, dry and flaky. Humidifiers can also help protect your home's furniture, hardwood floors, and artwork from cracking and warping.

Humidifiers work by adding moisture to the air, which cools the air down, making it feel warmer. Humidifiers can also remove particles from the air, such as dust and pollen, and can also release essential oils, such as lavender, to help freshen the air.

In the Different Guide , we test humidifiers to evaluate performance, including ease of use, noise level, and portability. We also evaluate how well humidifiers work, including how much moisture they add, how long their water tanks last, and whether they work effectively in warm or cold climates. Here are the best humidifiers to buy in 2022, according to testing and consumer reviews:

What We like

The 4-liter tank and 40-hour runtime give the Classic 200S plenty of power, and we love the 360-degree rotating nozzle. But its lack of a hygrometer keeps it from earning our top spot.
