Best Portable Humidifiers
Check Out Bemis, Air King and Kenmore
When you are looking to buy a portable humidifier, casters and handles are important. You should also get one that either vents on the top or the front, so you can place it where you want. Finally, check the length of the outlet cord. Many people make the mistake of buying a portable humidifier unit then find they have to move furniture to accommodate the short cord.
