@werehatrack My timing must be off. I’ve been to the coast on numerous times. Mostly Galveston, some Surf Side, CC once. Does Texas City or Kemah count?
Never ran into a “dry” season. Twas always at least humid, usually very humid.
The most comfortable times were in 1995. Late July, the best thing was the cooler weather as they were trying to get people to evacuate as a hurricane was coming in. Later in December, in SS for our honeymoon. Besides the lack of a crowd, also enjoyed the cooler clime.
@devyanks90@katbyter Sometimes that results from a faulty algorithm at Amazon which causes reviews to get homologated together that shouldn’t be. It also often results from a seller changing a listing to a different product instead of adding a listing for a new product.
Ultrasonic humidifiers efficiently spray water and the majority of its impurities into the air without killing any of the microbes.
Steam humidifiers use a lot more energy as they spray a significant fraction of the impurities into the air, but they do effectively sterilize it on the way out. The rest of the impurities will build up inside the humidifier, eventually clogging it.
Evaporative humidifiers provide an ideal breeding ground for microbes, but only release a tiny fraction into the air. Most of the crud from the water is deposited inside the humidifier, onto a replaceable proprietary element.
Every type of small humidifier needs to be cleaned regularly, but the ultrasonic ones are the easiest to clean, are energy efficient, and don’t require any other maintenance.
We have incredibly hard well water that rapidly fouls the whole house evaporative humidifier built into our furnace.
I will buy a couple of these, fill them with distilled water, and try to keep them clean. Wish me luck.
If I die from an airborne pathogen that grows in water, such as legionnaires disease, you will know I failed.
