Humidifiers: Improve air quality for the whole family
A good humidifier is a must-have for every home, but it is especially important to have this appliance if you have at least one child living under your roof. During the harsh and dry winter months, it is much easier to come down with various types of colds that can lead to a variety of symptoms, such as stuffy noses, dry coughs, and sore throats. Doctors recommend adding moisture to the air in order to cut down on sore throat irritation, soothe coughs, and clear up stuffy noses. Purchasing a humidifier is a great way to follow the doctor’s orders and add extra moisture to the air. Not only can a humidifier help to make children and adults feel better when they are sick, but the mist from a humidifier is also very soothing and can help individuals fall asleep better whether they are sick or well.
Types of Humidifiers:
Humidifiers come in two main categories: cool mist and warm mist. It is a good idea to have each kind in your home because they serve different purposes. A cool mist humidifier is primarily used to add moisture to the environment while helping to cool down the area. If you or your child have a fever or if you get sick during the warmer summer months, a cool mist humidifier can help you feel better without adding to the stifling heat of your environment. A warm mist humidifier is great for individuals who get colds or other sicknesses during the colder months, and the warm mist can help comfort particularly fussy babies.
A humidifier is a fairly simple appliance, but it offers a variety of benefits for both children and adults alike. Some of the benefits of a humidifier may include the ability to soothe sore throats, calm coughs, and relieve some sinus pressure by helping to clear up the nasal passages. Additionally, many different models make a gentle, consistent hum that can be quite comforting and may function as a soothing noisemaker for babies who have a hard time sleeping well at night due to excess environmental noises. Some individuals may even discover that the moisture from a quality humidifier helps to soothe their asthma or allergy symptoms.

General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
