Working from home is more prominent than ever. For those of us who are using our home as our workplace, it’s very important for that space to be comfortable. In the winter, with the central heating on and the cold raging outside, that can prove to be a challenge just from the fact that the environment can dry out your skin and dry air contains a lot of particles.
Humidifiers can help with that, plus, they’ve been shown to be beneficial in reducing the spread of COVID-19. Since I’ve been working from home during the winter, my skin has dried out and I wanted to make sure the air in my house wasn’t dry. This is why I now have a humidifier shaped like a funky lightbulb from Proffi Home.
I keep Proffi’s lightbulb humidifier on my desk when I work. Thanks to the USB function, the humidifier can connect to a laptop or any charger with a USB port. You have to press the button after you plug it in. Press for one second to start the humidifier and the LED lighting inside for the funky look.
The decorative elements of the Proffi lightbulb humidifier are white rocks and palm trees that go inside the lightbulb. You’ll have to fill it up with water, place the cotton filter inside the plastic tube, close the “base” of the lightbulb and plug it in.
So far, the humidifier works quite well and looks really funky on my desk. It can stand straight or be tilted slightly. Some people also use it as a nightlight and humidifier combo. However, the small volume of the Proffi lightbulb humidifier can only go so far, and there’s no way it can heat up an entire apartment.
It does use up the water quite quickly; half of the Proffi lightbulb was used up in two hours. For that reason, I recommend either keeping it next to you whilst you’re working or at night while you’re sleeping so that it keeps your bedroom sufficiently humid.
