Sunpentown SU-4010 Ultrasonic Dual Mist HumidifierWhether it comes from a roaring, rustic fire or your dependable central heating system, nothing is quite as comforting during the chilly winter months as walking into your home and being enveloped in warmth. For all of the comfort that a warm home provides, it removes a crucial element of your healthy indoor environment—moisture. Adding a humidifier to your area can restore proper moisture levels to your home as well as re-ignite your comfort.

Along with creating a generally uncomfortable environment, parched indoor air can lead to chapped lips, dry and itchy skin, irritated sinuses, upper respiratory problems, and more. It can also cause structural damage to your home and furnishings by causing wood to crack. To protect yourself and your home, take advantage of one of these top-rated Sylvane humidifiers, recently recognized by a leading consumer reporting agency.

Trophy ImageDid you know that part of the Sylvane story began with our company president’s severe tree pollen allergy? Steven Hong was searching for allergy treatment options to combine with immunotherapy and medications when he began researching the benefits of air purifiers. After purchasing his first air purifier, an Austin Air Healthmate, Hong was overwhelmed with the positive results he experienced using it. He immediately began researching other high-quality air purifiers, talking to vendors, developing a Web site, and—voila! In 2000, Sylvane.com was born.

Providing exceptional-quality air purifiers has been one of the cornerstones of Sylvane. In fact, a leading consumer reporting agency recently recommended two air purifiers that we carry: the Whirlpool AP51030K and the Hunter 30547. These air purifiers were recommended because they offer a great combination of performance, features, and value.
