使用 & Care of 欧博真人游戏 增湿器

使用 & Care of 欧博真人游戏 增湿器

Introduction

加湿器通常用于家庭,以缓解身体上的不适,干燥的鼻子, 喉咙, 嘴唇, 和皮肤. The moisture they add to dry air also helps alleviate common nuisances brought on by winter heating, such as static electricity, peeling wallpaper, and cracks in paint and furniture. 然而,过多的水分会促进家中生物有机体的生长. These organisms include dust mites, which are microscopic animals that produce materials causing allergic reactions to household dust, 和模具.

Recent studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Consumer Product 安全 Commission (CPSC) have shown that ultrasonic and impeller (or "cool mist") humidifiers can disperse materials, such as microorganisms and minerals, from their water tanks into indoor air. 目前, only limited information is available on the growth of microorganisms and the dispersal of microorganisms and minerals by home humidifiers.

Proper care and cleaning of ultrasonic and impeller humidifiers are important for reducing potential exposures to microorganisms, such as bacteria 和模具. Microorganisms often grow 在增湿器 which are equipped with tanks containing standing water. Breathing mist containing these pollutants has been implicated as causing a certain type of inflammation of the lungs.

The Federal government has not concluded that the dispersal of minerals by home humidifiers poses a serious health risk. Nevertheless, using water with lower mineral content will reduce exposures to these materials.

年轻的, 老年人, and those people with lung diseases or respiratory allergies may be particularly susceptible to certain types of airborne pollutants. 然而, if you follow the recommendations for the use and care of home humidifiers provided in this fact sheet, the potential for dispersal of microorganisms and minerals from your humidifier should be reduced.

Can I Use Tap Water in My Ultrasonic or Impeller Humidifier?

The Federal government has not concluded that using tap water in ultrasonic or impeller humidifiers poses a serious health risk. 然而, researchers have documented that these humidifiers are very efficient at dispersing minerals in tap water into the air. 除了, some consumers are bothered by a "white dust" that may appear on surfaces during use of these devices. 最重要的是, 自来水中的矿物质可能会增加地壳沉积物的发育, 或规模, 在增湿器. 规模可以成为微生物的滋生地.

Retarding the growth of scale is the most compelling reason to find alternatives to tap water. 因为这个原因, or if white dust is a problem or you wish to minimize your exposure to minerals in the tap water as a matter of prudence, you should either:

  1. 使用 bottled water labeled "distilled.虽然蒸馏水仍然含有一些矿物质, 它的矿物质含量可能比大多数自来水都要低. 蒸馏是去除水中矿物质最有效的方法.

    Two additional demineralization processes, deionization and reverse osmosis, remove most of the minerals from water, 但通常没有蒸馏有效. 水通过这两种过程脱盐会, 平均, 比蒸馏水含有更高的矿物质含量. “纯化”水可以通过这三种方法中的任何一种或其他类似方法生产.

    Be aware, however, that not all bottled water is produced using demineralization processes. Bottled waters labeled "spring", “自流”或“矿物”未经过处理以除去矿物含量.

  2. Consider using demineralization cartridges, 磁带, 或过滤器,如果提供或建议使用您的加湿器.

    然而,请注意,这些设备清除矿物质的能力可能相差很大. 需要进一步的研究来确定这些设备的工作效果和工作时间. Watch for the appearance of "white dust," which would indicate that minerals are not being removed.

    也, 在国内自来水中矿物质含量高的地区, 使用蒸馏水可能比墨盒便宜, 磁带, 或过滤器.

Types of Humidifiers and Associated Pollutants

控制台加湿器封装在为地板使用而设计的机柜中. 便携式加湿器更小,更容易移动. 中央加湿器被安装在供暖和空调系统中, and humidify the whole house.

The two types of humidifiers which generally appear to produce the greatest dispersions of both microorganisms and minerals are:

  • 超声波它通过超声波振动产生一种清凉的雾.
  • 叶轮或“冷雾”,它通过高速旋转的圆盘产生冷雾.

Two additional types of humidifiers can allow for growth of micro-organisms if they are equipped with a tank that holds standing water, but generally disperse less, 如果有任何, of these pollutants into the air. 这些都是:

  • 蒸发, which transmit moisture into the air invisibly by using a fan to blow air through a moistened absorbent material, 如皮带, 芯, 或过滤器.
  • 蒸汽蒸馏器这种装置通过电加热元件或电极加热水来产生蒸汽. "Warm mist" humidifiers are a type of steam vaporizer humidifier in which the steam is cooled before exiting the machine.

注意: 蒸汽蒸馏器 and evaporative humidifiers are not expected to disperse substantial amounts of minerals. A steam vaporizer tested by EPA did not disperse measurable amounts of minerals; evaporative humidifiers have not been tested by EPA for mineral dispersal.

Recommendations for Use and Care

重要的是,只有在条件需要时才使用加湿器, 在现有条件下使用正确的湿度设置, and to clean it thoroughly.

The possible health effects resulting from the dispersal of microorganisms and minerals by home humidifiers are not fully understood. 与此同时, it may be prudent to reduce the potential for personal exposures to these materials by taking the following precautions, 特别是当使用超声波和叶轮加湿器时.

  • 空罐, wipe all surfaces dry, and refill the water in portable humidifiers daily to reduce any growth of microorganisms; follow the manufacturer's instructions for changing water in console humidifiers. 一定要先从电源插座上拔掉电源插头.
  • 使用 water with low mineral content to prevent the build-up of scale and the dispersal of minerals into the air. 使用矿物含量低的水的信息见左边的方框.
  • Clean portable humidifiers every third day. 清空水箱,用刷子或其他洗涤器清洗. 删除任何规模, 存款, 或在罐体侧面或内壁上形成的薄膜, and wipe all surfaces dry. Again, be sure you unplug the unit.
  • 按照制造商的建议使用清洁产品或消毒剂. In the absence of specific recommendations, 用3%的过氧化氢溶液清洁所有与水接触的表面. 如果您使用任何清洁或消毒代理, rinse the tank thoroughly with several changes of tap water to prevent dispersal of chemicals into the air during use.
  • Follow the manufacturer's directions on cleaning and maintaining console and central (furnace mounted) humidifiers. 特别是, if the humidifier contains a tank, 不要让水长时间停留在水箱内, and keep the water clean.
  • 蒸汽加湿器应放在儿童够不到的地方. Steam and boiling water may cause burns.
  • 不要加湿到室内相对湿度超过50%. 较高的湿度可能会促进家中生物有机体的生长. 湿度计可在当地五金店买到,可用来测量湿度水平. Some humidifiers contain a built-in humidistat which may be adjusted to the proper moisture level. If water condenses on windows, 墙, 或图片, either relocate the humidifier, lower its humidistat setting, or reduce its use.
  • 不要让加湿器周围的区域变得潮湿或潮湿. 如果潮湿,请将加湿器的输出音量调小. If the humidifier output volume cannot be turned down, use the, humidifier intermittently. Do not allow absorbent materials, such as carpeting, drapes, or table cloths, to become damp.
  • 遵循制造商的使用说明, 欧博真人游戏, 更换加湿器附带的任何材料. 使用产品制造商推荐的适当材料.
  • Clean the humidifier, 指示, 在增湿季节结束或本产品不再频繁使用时. 在储存之前,确保所有的部件都是干燥的. 处理所有用过的脱矿筒、盒或过滤器. Store the unit in a dry location. 储存后,再次清洁本机,并清除任何灰尘的外部.
  • Stop using your humidifier and contact your physician if you have respiratory symptoms which you believe are associated with periods of use of your home humidifier, 即使您在遵循欧博真人游戏指示.
