          • Air Humidifier’s NanoCloud Technology

            Philips NanoCloud is a unique humidification technology that maintains comfortable moisture levels at home using a natural process. No white dust and wet patches, and 99%* less bacteria versus Ultrasonic Humidifiers.

          • What is Philips NanoCloud Technology?

            • Philips NanoCloud uses a completely natural process to maintain optimal moisture levels at home.
            • Air humidified by Philips NanoCloud is therefore healthier, comfortable and refreshing to breathe.*
            • How does it work: Unhealthy dry indoor air is drawn in, passed through a filter (also called a ‘wick’) that helps clean various impurities. Using natural methods, this filter then evaporates the clean, fresh water molecules into the room.

            *“Humidifiers: Air moisture eases skin, breathing symptoms”, Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research (MFMER) (http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/humidifiers/HQ00076)

          • Why is Philips NanoCloud humidification technology superior to Ultrasonic Humidifiers?

            • NanoCloud water molecules have too little volume to carry bacteria. This means: NanoCloud releases 99% less bacteria than an Ultrasonic Humidifier.*
            • Secondly, NanoCloud molecules are distributed evenly throughout the room. The big water droplets of an Ultrasonic humidifier however fall nearby and create wet patches.**
            • Thirdly, the droplets from Ultrasonic Humidifiers can contain impurities from the water reservoir. Minerals that form a sticky white dust over time. With the Philips NanoCloud Technology they remain inside.

            *Compared to standard ultrasonic technology (non warm mist), Philips NanoCloud technology in the humidifier emits up to 99% less natural bacteria into the air, as tested for 8 weeks in a 1m3 chamber, and certified in an independent laboratory benchmark study by Rabe HygieneConsult in June 2012 (Rabe Hygiene Consult 2101p_12.116).

            **Independent third-party test Determination of deposition of minerals from liquid droplets on furniture according to DIN 44973, IUTA e.V. (Institut für Energie- und Umwelttechnik) (139/08 – 55955.00), December 2008, to determine mineral deposits onto furniture from airborne liquid droplets over a period of 3 hours. NanoCloud demonstrated negligible deposition of minerals, whereas ultrasonic devices produced depositions of droplets of salt solution near the devices.

In general you need to replace the wick every 3 months. Some models do have an anti-bacterial cartridge which needs to be replaced every year. Furthermore we advise to clean the water tank regularly.

              How about the danger of bacteria, mold or fungus in the water?

              Philips NanoCloud reduces bacteria released into the air by 99% compared to Ultrasonic humidifiers*. Its invisible mist of water molecules has too little volume to carry bacteria and has a special wick that intercepts bacteria and mold spores in the water tank.

              *Compared to standard ultrasonic technology (non warm mist). Philips NanoCloud technology emits up to 99% less natural bacteria into the air, as tested for 8 weeks in a 1m3 chamber, and certified in an independent laboratory benchmark study by Rabe HygieneConsult in June 2012 (Rabe Hygiene Consult 2101p_12.116).

              How will it distribute through the air if I place it in a corner? Or do I need to carry it around to different places?

              Philips NanoCloud distributes its invisible water vapor evenly through the room, aided by a 360- degree distribution bay and an efficient fan that maintains a constant, effective airflow. NanoCloud water vapor suspended in the air for longer due to its fine size.

              There are vast price differences - why?

              The Ultrasonic doesn’t have a motor and a fan. Philips humidifier does have it to have high performance and healthier humidification.*
