Are Steam Whole House Humidifiers better at avoiding mold and bacteria than the other types of whole house humidifiers?

Yes, in general steam humidifiers are better at avoiding mold and bacteria growth compared to other types of whole house humidifiers:
1.Evaporative humidifiers do not require filters such as filters, do not need to be cleaned every day, and will not produce bacteria.
2.Ultrasonic and impeller humidifiers produce cool mists that can condense on surfaces and promote mold.
By contrast, steam humidifiers boil the water, killing many microbes. And they don’t require wicks or filters.
However, steam humidifiers are not foolproof:
If not cleaned regularly, mineral deposits can accumulate in the reservoir, which can affect the performance of a steam humidifier and can breed mold and mildew.So, despite the advantages of steam humidifiers, proper maintenance is still crucial.

I recommend everyone to read this article. The cold mist humidifier I bought before made me feel like there was a lot of white dust floating around. The mist produced by the steam humidifier I use now feels very moist and clean. Moreover, the steam humidifier will boil the water and kill many microorganisms.
