As it is able to output approximately 200 milliliters of moisture per hour, it will raise humidity levels in no time. To benefit from optimal performance, we recommend that you use it only in spaces of up to 320 square feet. It features a 0.71-gallon water tank that won’t need refilling all that often even if you run it continuously, providing from 15 to 28 hours of runtime, depending on the moisture output setting you choose.

It makes less than 30 decibels when it runs, so you won’t be able to hear it run as you try to fall asleep. If the LED lights bother you, you can turn the Sleep mode on to get rid of them. It features a 360-degree nozzle that ensures mist is spread into the room evenly in all directions. Another neat trait is the fact that the water tank is transparent, allowing you to check on the remaining water level with a simple glimpse. It consumes a mere 25 watts to run, which means that your utility bills won’t be affected by its operation all that much. Additionally, the manufacturer has it covered on parts and defects for 1 year after you purchase it.

Optimizing Humidity for a Healthy Sleep

One of the main components for a good start of the day is quality sleep, and there are many factors that weigh when it comes to it, including humidity levels in the bedroom. Climate plays an important role in the resting process, particularly when it comes to humidity, and seeing how a large number of us have low indoor air quality, it is time to learn exactly how it impacts sleep quality and ultimately impacts our well-functioning during the day.

Low humidity during the nocturnal slumber causes the throat to become dry, irritated, and itchy, making it difficult for you to fall asleep. It also causes dry coughing when you are cold, which will cause you to wake up in the middle of the night feeling a discomforting sensation in the neck. Similarly, high humidity negatively impacts sleep as well, so you have to ensure proper balance when it comes to moisture as the effects of excess moisture include the sensation of feeling hot and potential mold growth in the room, for those who suffer from allergies causing allergy symptoms like wheezing and irritations to appear.

The ideal humidity level in the bedroom should range from 30% to 50%, anything lower or higher causing discomfort and lowering sleep quality, thus robbing you of the vitality and energy you need when you wake up to get through the day properly. There are quite a few methods that you can turn to if you want to upkeep this ideal moisture level in the bedchamber, including:

  • Humidifier: Evidently, this is your optimal choice as these modern devices feature moisture level control, which means that you can select for them to maintain the exact humidity level you want to preserve in the room. This way, you are ensured that it won’t go lower or higher than the aforementioned proper range for ideal sleeping conditions, avoiding the disastrous effects of accidental excessive humidity.
  • Houseplants: Yes, plants can help with moisture as our green friends release moisture from their stems and leaves as vapors through a process called transpiration. Your only part to play in this natural humidification process is to keep the houseplants watered, and moisture regulation is bound to occur.
  • Water bowl on the windowsill: You must have a sunny windowsill in the bedroom, and during the day, when the sun shines through that window, you can place a bowl filled with water there so that the sun will gently and slowly warm the liquid and evaporate it into the air, raising moisture levels.

Rating Our Picks

Rating Criteria Explanation Product to Receive the Best Score
Nightlight By far, this is the most important feature for the machine to have as it helps soothe you to sleep. The soft light it emits not only helps you fall asleep faster as it creates a pleasant ambiance indoors, but it helps in case you have trouble falling asleep in conditions of complete darkness. Pure Enrichment MistAire, Anypro CF-2530A, Vicks V745A
Tank capacity The capacity of the tank influences product quality as it indicates how often you will need to refill it. It’s preferable for this capacity to be large so that you won’t have to tend to this maintenance task too often. Ideally, the tan should boast a transparent design to make it easier for you to keep an eye on the water level. Levoit LV600HH
Runtime The runtime it provides on a full tank is important to look into as it shows how convenient to use the machine is, and how proficient it is as well. The bigger the runtime provided is the better as you won’t wake up in the morning to notice that the device hasn’t been running for hours as the tank has fully depleted of water soon after you fell asleep. Levoit LV600HH
UV technology As with any other machine out there, the role of the UV technology is to kill off any bacteria and germs it encounters. The presence of this feature ensures that the mist released into the air in order to moisturize it is free of health-threatening impurities, preserving a clean and safe environment for you to sleep in. Honeywell HCM350W
360-degree mist nozzle As the nozzle that outputs the mist can be rotated in any direction you like, you get the upper hand when operating the humidifier as you will choose exactly where the mist flow should go first. When it comes to bedroom machines, this is important as you can direct the flow towards the bed without actually moving the device from its sitting place. Pure Enrichment MistAire
Noise level Seeing how you will use the device in the room you sleep in, it is important for it to produce as little noise as possible when it operates. Otherwise, it might keep you awake at night, disrupting your sleep. iTvanila 2.7L
Humidity sensor As you are constantly kept updated with the current situation when it comes to the indoor humidity level, you can make an informed choice when selecting the moisture level you want the machine to help you reach. Systems that feature humidity sensors are more precise when it comes to their mist output performance as well, so a higher overall quality is enjoyed. Levoit LV600HH

Testing Trials

Pure Enrichment MistAire Levoit LV600HH Anypro CF-2530A Vicks V745A Honeywell HCM350W
Moisture increase
The most important testing factor we passed our picks through is efficiency in enhancing indoor moisture. The higher the device can raise humidity levels and eliminate air dryness the better as this is the reason why you intend to buy it to begin with. What we did was check indoor moisture levels with a hygrometer before starting the device, and then let it run for 1 hour. When the time passed, we checked moisture levels again to see how big of a difference its operation made.
10/10 10/10 8/10 10/10 8/10
Ease of use
User friendliness is another testing parameter we couldn’t overlook as ease of use matters in the sense that no one wants an overly complicated device on their hands. Features that make the humidifiers more malleable to use are the ones that we looked for, like the automatic shut-off when the water tank empties and intuitive control over the mist output level, as well as features that help enhance the appeal factor of the device, like the nightlight function.
9/10 10/10 9/10 9/10 8/10
Easy cleaning tank
With the moisture increasing appliance, there are daily and weekly cleaning tasks that need to be performed. Considering the fact that you should change the water in the tank on a daily basis to make sure that it won’t become stale and harbor germs that will inevitably be released into the air and end up in your lungs, we tested to see how easy it is to remove and clean the tanks of our selections.
9/10 8/10 10/10 10/10 8/10
Noise output
Seeing how the room where you will use the device is the one you sleep in, you need a humidifier that produces little noise when it runs. Thus, we had to test the noise output level produced by each and every one of our picks in order to establish whether you will be able to sleep soundly with it in the same room or not. We placed a decibel meter in the proximity of the devices and compared the results to each other, grading the models that provided a more silent operation better than their competitors.
10/10 8/10 8/10 9/10 9/10
Duration
This testing parameter is linked not only to the size of the tank that the device features, but to the adjustability level it allows in terms of moisture output as well. Machines that allowed us a more expanded control over the output pace of the mist and that featured higher capacity tanks received better scores as they provided a longer duration of uninterrupted operation.

Conclusion

A perfect addition for the bedroom as it produces less than 30 decibels when it runs and produces up to 300 milliliters of moisture per hour to raise humidity levels as rapidly as possible, the Levoit LV600HH is the go-to solution for the bedroom. It even shows current humidity levels in the room to keep you aware of your surroundings at all times, and as it can run for up to 36 hours on a full tank, there’s not much hassle involved with using it either.

Best suited for those who are on a budget yet want to enjoy an effective performance, the Pure Enrichment MistAire uses ultrasonic technology to transform water into moisture-enhancing cool mist. Thus, it manages to stay ultra-quiet in its operation so that you will barely even notice it is turned on.

However, if utter silence is what you desire most, the TaoTronics TT-AH025B is our top suggestion as it produces a maximum of 26 decibels when it runs. Thus, chances are that you won’t even notice it is turned on when you go to bed.
