Rowenta is expanding its home comfort line with the launch of a new humidifier this fall. The Rowenta Intense Aqua Control humidifier is said to provide the optimal humidity level to protect consumers’ health from the negative effects of dry air, such as skin and respiratory ailments.
The Rowenta Intense Aqua Control Humidifier enables an output of two gallons of steam per day at only 40 decibels, which is equivalent to the level of noise in a library, according to the company. The technology implemented includes a ceramic disc that vibrates at an ultrasonic frequency to create micro-fine cool water droplets which are blown into the room where they evaporate. The humidifier also contains a tubular electric heater in which the water temperature is heated to 95°F to create 20% more humidity, noted Rowenta.
Users can set the humidifier at a targeted room humidity level, and the unit has a continuous run feature, a safety stop system and a warm mist function. The humidifier offers three smart modes, including auto, baby and night functions.
Rowenta entered the home comfort category with the launch of Turbo Silence fans in 2013 and stated that it is currently developing additional products, which will be available in 2015. The Rowenta Intense Aqua Control humidifier retails for $215 and will be available at Bed Bath & Beyond and additional retailers this fall.
