Say goodbye to dry skin, cracked lips, allergies and irritated eyes with the best air humidifiers in Malaysia 2020!

Did you know that humidity levels above 40% can hinder viruses (like the common cold) from being as infectious? If the air is too dry, you’re more likely to snore and have dry coughs too!

Take a look at these humidifiers that you can get in Malaysia. And their prices!

Types Of Air Humidifier

While most of the air humidifiers in the list below are only of one type:

There are actually a few more types! Described below!

Whichever one you choose, all humidifiers require some level of maintenance to keep harmful mold (and their nasty spores) away!

Speaking of unwanted mold, if you have an area in your home that is always damp:

You can fix that with the best dehumidifier in Malaysia!

1. Cool Mist

Because they utilize small fans:

These types of humidifiers will take more effort to clean compared to other types. As mold can build up fast!

The resulting breeze will carry the moisture along with it. Mind that it will not be as cool as what an air conditioner or air cooler would project.

2. Warm Mist

You probably don’t need one of these in Malaysia. Warm mist humidifiers have a heating element to make steam. For medicinal healing with essential oils.

They are quiet since there is no fan. Because of the steam, it’s advisable to keep this away from children in the house!

3. Ultrasonic

This is the type of humidifier that is prominently available in Malaysia! It’s actually very similar to an ultrasonic diffuser. The only difference is that you would add essential oils to the diffuser! Aroma diffusers tend to have a smaller water capacity too.

Ultrasonic humidifiers work through a combination of a vibrating plate (in water) and maybe a fan to generate a fine mist. They can be quiet.

The water tank does have to be cleaned regularly. To avoid mold or calcium build up!

4. Evaporative

An evaporative humidifier has a replaceable wick filter to draw up water. While a fan blows the water vapor into the air!

Both filter and water tank have to be cleaned. And the filter has to be replaced eventually too.

Difference Between Air Humidifiers And Air Purifiers

What about air purifiers? How are they different from air humidifiers?

For one, air purifiers have a different purpose! They improve air quality of the environment around them!

Humidifiers on the other hand, increase the moisture level in a room. And do not do anything to filter out dust, mold or other allergens! Unless they have a built-in filter!

What To Look For In A Humidifiers

1. Size

Humidifiers are usually small enough to sit on a desk, bedside table or shelf easily. Because of their size, you can transfer them to another location as needed.

There also are humidifiers with large water tanks that should sit on the floor.

But the important thing is to note their range of coverage (or application area). This will be written in square feet or square meters to represent the maximum or optimum room size the device can handle.

2. Run Time

How long can the humidifier run until you need to refill the water tank?

Some humidifiers can run for a few hours. While others can operate for half or almost a complete day!

For safety, there should be an auto-off feature in case the water runs out when you’re not around or aware!

3. Ease Of Cleaning

Depending on how heavy your usage is, cleaning can be a pain. But is necessary to stop bacteria and mold from creating respiratory problems!

So check that the humidifier can be taken apart with minimal parts to clean. The tank should be easy to remove. With a wide opening to enable refilling and cleaning of the tank.

4. Features

Not essential but nice to have!

  • Water level indicator or transparent cover
  • UV light filter (to prevent microbe growth in the water)
  • Hard water filter
  • Air filter/ pre-filter

5. Budget

You can get humidifiers for as low as RM45.

The most expensive one in this list is ~RM200.
