Trying to identify the right small and portable humidifier for children’s bedrooms, dorm rooms, offices, or traveling isn't always a straightforward process. Humidifiers come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and configurations. Comparing user reviews and comments is usually the most effective step to determine the right choice.
Buzzrake has examined literally thousand of user comments and ratings to find out what makes some models excel over others. In this case, Buzzrake looked into models with a water tank capacity of 2 gallons or under, which are thought to be the ideal size for adding moisture to a small-sized room.
Small room humidifiers are the portable and lightweight units that sit on a tabletop or the floor. A majority of models are simple to use and simply plug directly into a wall socket and water is held in a easy to remove and refillable tank. Because of the lightweight nature of these humidifiers, they are quick to move from room to room if required.
User favorites in the small humidifier category do, of course, have a relatively small coverage area (on average 483 square feet) and tank capacity (0.9 gallons on average), but they are still highly effective at providing the desired moisture.
