WINIX LightCel™ TechnologyThe WINIX LightCel UV-C + LED technology removes bacteria present in the water, providing a soothing and safe mist for you and your family.
Ultraviolet (UV) Humidifiers purify water with UV light and distribute clean water particles throughout the room. UV-C light purifies water before dispersing it, reducing the spread of germs and bacteria. UV-C rays inhibit its expansion by disabling cells in the sense of damaging the chemical structure of biological DNA.
There are three types of UV rays:
– Long wavelength (UV-A) – Medium wavelength (UV-B) – Short wavelength (UV-C)
The shorter the wavelength of the ultraviolet rays, the stronger the sterilization is, therefore UV-C rays are commonly used for sterilization.
Advantages of the UV humidifier
Humidifiers are known to have a great influence on human health and UV-C light is, as already mentioned, a strong disinfectant. By combining these two technologies, humidifiers can provide several proven benefits. you get clean, germ-free air, which is distributed throughout the house. UV light has been proven to kill bacteria, germs, viruses and pathogens at a specific wavelength. The UV light in the humidifier purifies the water before it is released into the air.
Adding humidity to the air (especially in the winter months) can improve the air quality in your home and has significant positive effects on the health of you and your family.
UV humidifiers have proven particularly effective for:
– People who suffer from allergies and asthma – People with skin problems – People with respiratory problems – People who want to minimize the presence of viruses and bacteria in the air – People who live in dry climates – People who have pets and scents in the house – People with sleep problems – People with furniture that needs to be protected from moisture
The WINIX L500 humidifier
The LightCel UV-C + LED technology described above is part of the WINIX L500.
The WINIX L500 is an ultrasonic humidifier with hot and cold mist. Thanks to the 7.5 liter water tank, it performs its service excellently over a long period of time without requiring much maintenance. This humidifier is recommended for living rooms, bedrooms and offices.
How do ultrasonic humidifiers work?
Ultrasonic humidifiers are based on highly efficient technology that emits tiny droplets of water into the air. These droplets then evaporate into water vapor, which humidifies the room. Normal (evaporative) humidifiers, on the other hand, use heat to evaporate the water in the unit and then blow the steam into the air.
The most important advantages of ultrasonic humidifiers
Ultrasonic humidifiers offer a number of advantages over evaporative humidifiers. Ultrasonic humidifiers are quieter. Require less maintenance than traditional humidifiers. They do not require filter change and there is no risk of burns as the water in the device does not stay hot. This is especially important if the humidifier is used in a child's room. – Ultrasonic humidifiers humidify the air very well and can even add too much moisture to the air, causing over-humidification of the air, which causes dampness and mold. Therefore it is recommended to use a hygrostat, which can detect the air humidity. The WINIX L500 ultrasonic humidifier has a hygrostat that allows for constant and perfect humidity control. – The vibration of an ultrasonic humidifier is much quieter than the fan of an evaporative humidifier. In addition, ultrasonic humidifiers consume less electricity than conventional humidifiers.
