If you’re the type of person who sleeps on their back, it’s important to keep your humidifier at least 3 feet away from the bed. If you sleep on your side or stomach, keep your humidifier 6-8 inches away from the bed. Why? Humidifiers increase air moisture and raise humidity levels in a room which can lead to bacterial growth on nearby surfaces like furniture and floors. Keep that moist air out of your bedroom!
Determining how far away to sleep from a humidifier can be tricky. On one hand, you want to be close enough that the humidifier’s mist reaches your desired area, but on the other hand you don’t want to be too close and risk breathing in the moist air. In this blog post we’ll explore some of the factors you should consider when deciding how far away to sleep from a humidifier.
Maintaining the right humidity level in your home is important all year long, but it’s especially critical in the winter when the air is dry. A humidifier can help add some much-needed moisture to the air, but how close should you place it to your bed? Here’s a look at what you need to know.
The distance you sleep from the humidifier will be dependent on your personal preference. There are some that need to be close, while others can get away with sleeping farther away. Your individual needs and preferences should dictate how far you sleep from the humidifier!
