Cooler weather has arrived, and with it often comes dry air that can irritate your nose and throat throughout fall and winter. To help combat the issue, it can be worth adding a humidifier to your home to help create a comfortable environment.
One top-rated humidifier has racked up thousands of five-star reviews at Amazon Canada, with shoppers praising its smart connectivity and ease of use.
Check out the Levoit Classic 300S Cool Mist Humidifier, which is currently on sale for $90.
What is a humidifier?
A humidifier is a small appliance that releases water vapour into the air to increase moisture levels and soothe problems commonly associated with dry indoor air.
Humidifiers can range in capacity and size but are typically small enough to fit on a bedroom nightstand or in the corner of a room. Most humidifiers are quiet, easy to use and work well with water straight from the tap.

What are the benefits of a humidifier?
From nose and eye irritation to cracked, uncomfortable skin, dry indoor air can wreak havoc on a person's health and wellbeing.
By increasing the moisture levels in your home, humidifiers can help soothe cold and flu symptoms, loosen congestion, alleviate some allergy and asthma symptoms and ease dry skin pain.
The Levoit Cool Mist Humidifier is perfect for any smart home, as it is compatible with all Amazon Alexa devices through Bluetooth connectivity. It lasts up to 60 hours at the low mist level and can cover spaces as large as 505 ft²/47 m².
The humidifier's built-in sensors automatically adjust to maintain optimal moisture levels. It also comes with convenient settings like a quiet sleep mode for overnight use, automatic shutoff and an adjustable display. If you're partial to essential oils, you can even add a few drops to the water to create a spa-like environment when using this humidifier as a diffuser.
'This humidifier is fantastic'
Amazon shoppers have been loving this Levoit humidifier, which has been called "very good quality for the money." It's received a 4.5-star average rating from more than 3,700 customer reviews, and has earned a coveted Amazon's Choice badge.
Among its top features, shoppers have been impressed by the humidifier's top-filling tank which is "easy to fill," and its "very large" capacity that lasts several days.
'Easy to control with my smart phone'
Others were also a fan of the smart home aspect, which connect to Amazon Alexa and Google Home devices.
"It connected without any problems," said one reviewer. "Well worth buying."
While reviewers say this device is ideal for "dry Canadian air," some reviewers found that the design of this humidifier is prone to leaks. In case you're worried about drips affecting your flooring, one reviewer recommended placing the humidifier on top of a plastic tray, to catch ant drips "before it's an issue."
With its large capacity and convenient Bluetooth connectivity, the Levoit Classic 300S Cool Mist Humidifier is a great choice for improving your home's indoor air quality this fall.
