With winter comes two of our least favorite things: harsh dry air and cold and flu season. Both can take a major toll on your body and home, leading to itchy skin, sore throats, congested sinuses and even warped or cracked furniture. ("Yikes!" is right.)

Luckily, you can easily replenish the moisture in your home with a new humidifier. Your skin, your furniture and even your plants and pets will all thank you for it. Here are the best humidifiers for every budget and need that you can get on sale now and enjoy throughout the New Year.

What to Consider When Buying a Humidifier

To find the best humidifier for your home, you need to know a few key phrases: "warm mist," "cool mist" and "ultrasonic." Essentially, warm mist and cool mist humidifiers both release water vapor into the air, but warm mist humidifiers heat the water and convert it into steam. For this reason, warm mist humidifiers are better at targeting germs (hello, cold and flu season), but they can be too hot for kids and pets and harbor bacteria if not cleaned frequently.


How to Clean a Humidifier

Improve your home's air quality by disinfecting one of the most important small appliances you’re probably forgetting to clean.

Cool mist humidifiers, on the other hand, don't produce heat. Instead, they use ultrasonic technology to break up water particles in the air and circulate moisture into an environment. This is why you'll usually see the terms "cool mist" and "ultrasonic" paired together.

Finally, consider the size of your space. A smaller room, like a nursery or home office, will require only a tabletop or even a portable humidifier. But a larger room, like an open-concept kitchen and living area, might need a freestanding, remote-controlled humidifier. The good news? You can find all of these styles on sale below.
