Default Humidifiers and Budgies

As it is winter and -20 outside here sometimes, the heat is on. However, now everyone in the house has dry skin. I'm looking to get a humidifier but naturally worry about teflon issues. Do any of you have a humidifier? What brand? I really think it will benefit poor Lemon and Sweetie's cere and feet.

I have one for my sinuses. I believe it's a Vicks brand (think Vicks Vaporub).

Mine is crane classic warm mist humidifier. It doesn't work the best in larger rooms but I just have it in my bedroom. The birds have their bedtime cage in my room so both birds and humans can benefit from the humidity.
The other thing I do is take the birds into the bathroom and run a hot shower for a bit so they can get some more humidity before going to their daytime cage.

I think (I could be wrong) its only warm mist humidifiers have the concern of having a PTEF(Teflon) coating. I personally did not want a cool mist humidifier so I searched amazon for a warm mist humidifier in my price range and contacted the manufacturer asking if the heating element was PTEF free.

We use a Duracraft humidifier, and so far, Ernie isn't experiencing any health problems.

A warm mist humidifier is best and many brands do not contain PTEF.
The one I use in the bedroom is a Honeywell.
