Germ-Free Humidifier Systems
A germ free humidifier is a humidifier that removes mold, spores and water-breeding bacteria. There are three ways that the water in the reservoir can be sterilized, those that use ultraviolet (UV) light to eliminate bacteria in the water, humidifiers that heat the water to boiling to eliminate bacteria, and humidifiers that use both methods (UV light and boiling combined). Any one of these three options is equally effective, eliminating bacteria that can be added to the air with other types of humidifiers. Germ free humidifiers are an excellent way to increase the humidity in a room or part of the house without the exposure to harmful germs that typical humidifiers can produce, and are an ideal solution for those who suffer from allergies and chronic respiratory illnesses.
What do They Cost?
Germ free humidifiers typically cost double or triple what a typical humidifier will, and come in a variety of sizes, depending on the size of room for which they are needed. Smaller units are perfect for individual bedrooms, while larger units will accommodate larger living areas, such as a living room or den. If the humidifier is to be used in an infant or toddler's room, the safest option would be to select a humidifier that uses UV light to avoid any accidental burns.
How To Assemble Floor Fans
Assembling floor fans is quite a simple task since putting it together needs little or no tools at all. Typically, floor fans are comprised of only 4 parts: the fan itself, the rod, the base and the switch. Assembling these pieces is simple with these tips.
The fan’s main body consists of the blades and the motor. The size of the blades depend on the fan size but usually fans consist of three rotating, metal blades that are encased in a grill.
This is the part which connects the fan to the base. Depending on the model of floor fan, it will either snap into place or else require screws to connect it to each of the other 2 parts. Screws will be provided and you can simply screw them into the appropriate holes as will be diagrammed in the instructions.
If the rod is not already connected to the base, you should either snap it into position or else screw it there depending on your model of fan. As previously noted, instructions should be provided which are specific to your fan.
The control switch may be located on top of the fan's head (in which case it will require no assembly at all) or will rest on the floor and must be connected to the base. If the latter, it should be a simple matter to plug the switch into the appropriate hole.
Depending on the type of floor fan you purchase, assembly will vary. However, assembling a floor fan is basically the same for every model and can be done by almost anyone.
