Cool mist or warm mist humidifiers, which do you choose?

Have you ever been shopping for a humidifier whether for your own sweet baby or for someone else's and discovered they are either labeled "cool mist" or  "warm mist". What's the difference and which one should you choose?  This question I asked myself just recently and I ended up doing some pretty extensive research on the subject since I wanted the best for my baby girl.  Here is what I found over at eHow.

Cool Mist Humidifiers

Cool mist humidifiers are recommended for young children.  "It helps treat asthma and allergy type symptoms."  Cool air is easier to breathe than warm air.  If we think about this in detail this is so the truth.  It is definitely more difficult to breathe warmer air causing discomfort, so this can be a potential danger for newborns and infants with breathing issues if you choose the warm air humidifiers.

Cool mist humidifiers are known to be easier to clean and trap less bacteria, etc.  Rinsing this particular humidifier every few days cuts down on germs in the environment.  They are also known as environmentally friendly since it tends to use less electricity than warm mist humidifiers.

Warm Mist Humidifiers

Warm mist humidifiers are ideal for treating cold and flu symptoms.  If you experience congestion, stuffed up nose, and aches, the warm mist helps relieve those miserable symptoms.  Warm mist humidifiers also kill any mold present in the home.  If it a cold time of year it is best to consider a warm mist humidifier.  This helps warm up a room especially at night.

Many people prefer warm mist humidifiers because they don't make any noise like cool mist humidifiers do.  Again, if you have a small child or baby residing in your home, consider the cool mist.  You want the best for your little one, especially during those "sicky" times of year.

I just recently noticed that there are humidifiers that have both cool mist and warm mist settings.  This is the one we went with since it was so hard to decide what was worth purchasing.  Basically, you may spend about the same amount on a dual setting rather than just one setting.

Hopefully this cleared some things up for you regarding the differences between "cool mist" and "warm mist' humidifiers as it definitely helped me as confused as I was.  How about you?  Which humidifier do you find works best in your home?  Maybe you have a dual mist humidifier.  Feel free to share your experiences with both.  We would love to hear from you.
