      Still working after 7 years

      Posted
      THay

      I believe I originally bought this for my tortoises about 7 years ago. Now I use for myself in the winter so I can breathe better. I have read other comments from people who had issues, and I think I can provide some tips on how to keep this lasting as long as I have. Someone said it would turn off as soon as you turn it on. This happened to me before and I realized it would happen after filling the tank. Turns out I had to wait for the water from the tank to settle and then it would turn on and stay on no problem. Make sure you are letting it do this (takes less than 30 seconds) before thinking it is broken. Do not leave it without the demineralization capsule. I didn’t change mine for years, but sure enough as soon as I took it out, the minerals built up all over the pieces that keep it working. It was easy enough to clean off and as soon as I cleaned it thoroughly it was working again. Clean machines really do run better. I would buy this again considering it has lasted me so long and the only issues I had were human error, not the machine. Will be buying another demineralization capsule to keep me from having to clean it. Also, have never used distilled water. 7 years and I have only used tap water.

      No warm vapor and counterintuitive design.

      Posted
      Mark

      Instructions say to wait 20 minutes for warm vapor. An hour later, vapor is still the same temperature and is not warm. Drove many miles out the way to find one in stock, so not particularly pleased at the waste of time and money on fuel and wear and tear only to have to return it. Also, having to invert and sit the finished top of the water tank down on a surface to fill it is not a good design and is an instant recipe for scratches and rubbed off paint on a primary, very visible design element. You don't sit your glasses lens down on any surface, so one would not expect to slide around a polished plexiglas and painted assembly on a hard surface while filling. Forget hanging on to it under the tap since it is conical in the inverted postion and will most likely get away from you as it gets heavier. Use a towel to protect the "top" of the reservoir when inverted and filling if you want to maintain its good looks. I undersand that the tank angle when inverted may be necessary to fit under conventional sink while giving some additinal capacity, but other manufactures choose to use split tanks to solve this design issue. There is another review reporting a fumble, as it were, when handling the less than ergodynamically designed tank since it is tapered and potentially slippery in the inverted position--opposing team: 6; consumer: 0. The extra point is good! The night light might have been a cool psychedelic feature for parties, but I i will never know.

      SO GLAD I PURCHASED THIS!!!

      I'm so happy the few negative reviews did not dissuade me from purchasing this humidifier. I LOVE IT! I used it yesterday and for the first time in several weeks I did not wake up with a scratchy, sore throat. While it is not totally silent, it is very quiet -- one reviewer called it a "calming, white noise sound". I am also glad I bought the Geek Squad protection plan so now I can have this for two full years! (Unlike other humidifers/air diffusers I've purchased on Amazon that quit working.) My vet thinks this will be beneficial for my dogs' Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome (various upper airway problems found in short-nosed, flat-faced dog breeds). I would buy it again in a heartbeat!

      Great humidifier for med/large rooms

      My favorite humidifier finally crapped out on me after 5 years, they quit making them. Been through many humidifiers. I really like this one! Just wish it would shut off after it got to a certain percentage of humidity. It does have a timer you can set for so many hours and you can adjust the humidity output. Works very well and it's very quiet. Most humidifiers I've used don't last long, but my old Honeywell went 5 yrs. Curious to see how long this one last, it's built well. Remember to always use distilled water in your humidifier. Sediment from tap water can destroy a humidifier, and it's hard to clean off.

      So I did some research as I was interested in getting a good humidifier because the one I had was not the best. I read the reviews for the HoMedics Humidifier, and I am happy with the purchase – product. I like the option that you can select the warm or cold TEMP, and that you can lower or turn off the light of the water tank, so it will not distract your sleeping time. Also, I think the size of the tank is convenient. I refill it every two – three days, and that is using the humidifier all night. Sometimes it makes some weird noise; I guess because my floor is a bit uneven, but once I positioned the humidifier correctly, it makes no sound. I do recommend this product.

      Great humidifier but settings are confusing

      The humidifier works great in our large bedroom and you can see the mist coming out, so once it stops, you know it's time to refill it. We've used it for a couple months already and it's still working well. It doesn't need a filter and doesn't smell like the way some humidifiers start to smell after water has been left in there for a while. The only thing is that setting the humidity & cooling is a bit confusing. We still don't understand it very well, but we try to set it around 50% humidity, even though it doesn't read that way on the screen. The water will last about 2 days.

      This is my second unit after the first one shut off and wouldn't come back on. I called the manufacturer and they told me I was out of luck since it was 13 months old. Now, #2...and would you guess it, the same exact thing happened. I'll give it credit, it lasted about 16 months this time but I'm going to guess my phone call will result in the same exact thing. Sorry but it's out of warranty. I will be looking for a better option this time around and Homedics as a whole is nearly off my list of products to consider in the future.

      Decent for basement

      The winters in Iowa can be quite dry, so I wanted to get a bigger humidifier to cut down on getting a stuffed up nose, dry mouth and itchy skin during the winter. I purchased this humidifier for my finished basement (about 600 sq. ft.) and it seems to be working decently. I still have a little itch skin, but my nose hasn't been stuffed up. I'm still a little confused on the humidity setting feature that is suppose to shut the humidifier down once it reaches the desired humidity set point. Mine continually runs even after it hits the desired humidity set point. Other than that it works pretty good.
