Hello! I am in need of a humidifier/air-purifier. I tested the humidity in the house and it is under 50%. My budgies' skin is a bit dry and even with little sprays and baths and such it's still not good enough.
I've been looking at different forums and pages and it seems that a cooling mist humidifier won't fit my needs as it adds to the cold and is more likely to grow mold and also takes longer to add humidity to the room.
So I need a warming mist humidifier. After some looking around I heard Honeywell and Sunbeam could be good brands. The only issue is if it does get too hot, then it's best not to put right next to the birds, and that they need consistent cleaning. This is completely doable for me as I will make sure my birds are safe and the product is always clean.
Considering all this, I just wanted to make ABSOLUTE sure that the product I want to buy is safe and I'm not missing any factors? I did hear that on some of the larger humidifiers for bigger spaces like the living room they had Teflon, but this one is for a single and smaller space so it wouldn't need to heat up as much, hence not needing Teflon? I'm not sure. If no one else knows, where can I check to see if it has it?
I'm sorry this is so long, I care dearly for my seven babies and the last thing I want to do is hurt them by trying to help. :c
I wanted this:
Sunbeam Warm Mist Humidifier, SWM6000-BWM
Here is a link as I saw it was also available at a Walmart near me and I wanted it as quick as possible to help my babies:
Thank you so much for your help!
