Thanks to Dyson Canada for partnering with me for this post!
There’s one thing you’ve gotta know about my husband and that is that he is obsessed with “smart” technology. You know, something that is just SO extra and does a bunch of things you’d never expect. We have a smart fire detector, a smart doorbell, a smart lighting system.. even smart Christmas lights. It was about time we upgraded our old school humidifier. But can you really improve on the basic technology that is a humidifier, I mean all it does is add moisture to the room right? Well friends.. YES, you can indeed! And Dyson has done it. This Winter you can have healthy winter skin with Dyson!
If you know the Dyson line of products than you know that they are sleek and modern, and go above and beyond in the technology that they offer. We already have an amazing Dyson vacuum, so I was more than happy to add to our family of products that we use.
Lets start off with what makes the Dyson humidifier different. First of all, it KILLS 99.9% of bacteria in the water while other humidifiers breed it. It does this by exposing every drop of water to UVC light. I mean, WHAT? That’s super futuristic stuff. After that it disperses the mist through the room evenly and measures temperature and humidity to adjust accordingly and create a comfortable environment in your home. That means there’s no over humidification. It’s always just right.
The accurate humidistat and efficient water management system ensure up to 18 hours of continuous use on just one full tank of water. Plus there’s a built-in sleep timer for automatic shut off, or you can just use the remote if you don’t wanna roll on outta bed! But you can leave it on as well. It’s incredibly quiet, so it won’t keep you awake.
See? All crazy awesome stuff to get really excited about. ESPECIALLY if you live somewhere like I do. Southern Ontario Canada can get pretty cold. Today we had an extreme cold warning issued. Temperatures of -30 degrees Celsius are not abnormal in the Wintertime! That can make for some pretty dry air when you’re running the furnace constantly, and may be why my daughter got her first nose bleed this season. Not to mention why our skin is dry and scaly, and I can practically hear my lips screaming for some chapstick!
And while I’ve noticed a huge difference in our skin since using the Dyson humidifier, another huge reason we use the Dyson humidifier is to help combat colds. Ever since B started Junior Kindergarten she’s pretty much been sick non-stop. I’ve been told by friends with older kids that the Kindergarten years are pretty much illness after illness for the entire school year. And since our little Kindergartener brings her germs home with her the rest of us get sick, too. It’s so important to me that I protect our 5 month old from as much as I can. The humidifier kills the bad bacteria we put into the air via the water reservoir and UVC light, and provides us with clean, humid air. You’d think it would get pretty dirty doing such a tough job, but nope! You only have to clean it once a month, per the manual, whereas older style humidifiers you’d have to clean nearly every day. I’m all about less things to clean every day. As a mom, I’ve got enough 😉
If you’re looking for a solution to your dry air problems or have a little baby at home I couldn’t recommend this humidifier more. It is a multi-tasking powerhouse and I won’t be suffering through Winter anymore without it. Your family (and skin) will thank you! Okay, maybe not literally, but you know!
