Crane-USA Cool Mist Humidifier Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: Howdy everyone, I wanted to inform you that I was not compensated for this post. However, I did receive a product and the opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.

With cold and flu season right around the corner, I wanted to add some things to the house that would keep the girls and I healthy this Winter. Of course hand sanitizer, sanitizing cleaning products, and lots of orange juice was a must but what other ways could I keep them healthy? After searching around the internet and talking to Crane USA I decided to try out a Cool Mist Humidifier.

Health Benefits of a Cool Mist Humidifier

While I was researching the benefits I found some interesting health benefits to using a cool mist humidifier. I wanted to share some with you so you could make a well informed choice about ways to keep your family healthy this winter.

  1. Eases Asthma Symptoms- My oldest suffers from Asthma and it is worse in the winter because of the harsh cold air. It seems we are refilling her emergency inhaler a lot more during those cold months. A cool mist humidifier helps eases the breathing problems associated with asthma. Especially if those symptoms are aggravated by a cold or respiratory infection.
  2. Eases Dry Skin Suffering- Heating your home in the winter causes dry, hot air which can dry out your lips and skin. This can cause severe chapped lips and dry, itchy skin. Which can be pretty miserable. Cool mist humidifiers moistens the air and can help prevent these conditions and ease the suffering they cause.
  3. Prevents Sinus Infections and Sinusitis- If you are like me, your sinuses are 10x worse in the winter. The cool mist humidifier can keep nasal passages moist, which can help alleviate or even prevent sinus issues.
  4. Prevent Flu From Spreading- I talk more about that below, but studies have shown that cool mist humidifiers can help ease flu symptoms and prevent them from spreading.

Proper Humidity Can Help Stop The Spread Of The Flu Virus

Did you know that proper humidity levels in your home and workplace also help stop the spread of the flu virus?

A new study done by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that relative humidity levels of 43% and above eliminate the vast majority of flu virus particles in the air. Moisture from the water vapor in the air combines with germs and other airborne chemicals, causing them to become heavy and fall to the ground. This makes surviving and spreading incredibly difficult for the virus at regular humidity levels.

In a previous study done by Jeffrey Shaman, Ph.D., of Oregon State University in Corvallis, he claims, “[the influenza virus’] ability to survive and be transmitted person-to-person is greatly affected by how dry or wet the air is”. The study was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Shaman believes he’s found the answer: It’s all about humidity. Absolute humidity, that is, which is particularly low in cold weather. The difference is important, because cold air cannot hold as much water vapor as warm air.

Aha, low humidity from dry, cold air! Could this be the answer to the mystery behind the flu’s prominence in winter months?

Why You Should Trust Crane USA For Your Cool Mist Humidifier Needs

Crane USA was founded in 2005 on the belief that design is an attitude and the home is a personal expression of an individual’s lifestyle. We also realize that more than ever before are looking to improve their health and their home environment. Crane is a company that recognizes these health concerns and people’s individual lifestyles.

While humidifiers, air purifiers, and space heaters are some of the best ways to control indoor air pollutants and heating, most people don’t break into a smile about these traditionally unexciting humidity, air quality, and heating solutions. Here at Crane, we are looking to change that.

Since 2005, Crane USA has taken the lead in putting the “fun” into cool mist humidifiers, air purifiers, and space heating by following our mantra: design for better living. Our products are functional and efficient at fulfilling your home improvement needs while communicating an appreciation for elegant design. Furthermore, our unique sense of design and unwavering commitment to quality allows us to continue to create our own distinctive interpretation of humidity, air quality, and heating solutions while remaining a step ahead of the crowd.

From cute characters like Oscar the Owl to beautifully designed heaters that will fit any décor, Crane builds products you can trust. I have tried out the Oscar the Owl cool mist humidifier and in the last two weeks I have noticed a huge change in my older daughters breathing and my dry skin. Plus my sinuses are a lot better.

I am not saying they are a miracle cure, but I am saying I feel that there would be several health benefits to buying a cool mist humidifier.
