      One of my favorite humidifiers.

      Ok, Short technical lesson, this is a Honeywell-labeled version of a popular Vicks humidifier, which is fine,'cause it qualifies for the GeekSquad extended warranty, which is worth purchasing for these units. They _are_ well built, but there's a couple of caveats: 1) This is a steam unit, so there is a heating element, but they have no sacrificial anode, so if you have hard water, consider using distilled water in the unit to avoid scaling issues. (Plus distilled water at your local drug store is cheap.) If you can't manage distilled water, then using a good descaler every two or three uses is a good idea. 2) There is a medicine well at the top of the steam column, using this is marginally effective. You're better off using a vaporizer additive in the actual water. There are differences in how to go about this, so pay attention: a) Vicks or Kaz products - are safe enough to mix in during the filling of the reservoir tank. b) Generic additives, or anything oil based - You will probably want to premix your water, or possibly add it to the medicinal reservoir. You'll want to avoid adding these to your actual tank as these are petroleum-based products, and can potentially break down the acrylic in the water tank (and cloud the clear panels as well). An elegant solution a relative of mine had (who is a nurse), was to use an IV drip line for the additive, but I've not the space or patience to explain how to set that up. :) 3) Clean, dry, and inspect after each use. This is important. I've had three of these in the last 6 years, I kinda know what I'm talking about. Since there is water + electricity going on, things will get corroded rather quickly unless you take steps to minimize corrosion. All the plastic parts can come off the "working" part of the unit, most are designed to be Dishwasher safe (on the top shelf). The base is not. If you see mineral build-up, then use White Vinegar or CLR to clean it up quickly. Don't let it build up. Cheap alternative, just fill the machine with distilled water instead of using the tap. Enjoy!

      A Must-Have For Winter Months, Pays for Itself

      In our 4-bedroom house, I keep 2 of these running on low, 24/7, starting when I turn on the furnace in the fall. They pay for themselves in no time. No one in our house has sore throats and we almost never have colds or sinus infections that tend to get a good start when sleeping with dry air. (Just one illness, with its doctor visit, accompanying Rxs and over-the-counter meds and cough drops, can easily cost more than the 2 humidifiers.) I bought this last one to replace one that had finally broken (plastic water tank got brittle and shattered) after 3 or 4 winters of use. No filters needed, but you do have to clean it every week or 2 with vinegar or CLR. We have a lot of minerals in our water, so we get mineral buildup on the heating element that is difficult to clean, but it's a small price to pay for a good night's sleep night after night. (If I forget to fill it for JUST ONE NIGHT, everyone in the house wakes up with a sore throat and stuffy head.) I run 2 next to the kitchen sink, but if anyone feels a stuffy head coming on, I put one of them in the bedroom for them and it does the trick, sometimes overnight. I use these IN ADDITION to the whole-house humidifier on our furnace. My grown kids that have moved out have realized the benefits (after getting sick) and use humidifiers of their own now.

      Defective junk

      Posted

      I purchased this unit as I had owned another Honeywell humidifier years ago and thought it was a brand I could trust. I read the manual cover to cover, checked that all the parts were there and correctly assembled, then filled it up and plugged it in, all according to directions. The green light came on and the unit produced a warm steam mist. For five minutes. Then an orange light came on and it completely cooled down and stopped working. I unplugged and turned it off and tried again. The exact same thing happened. There was nothing in the owner's manual about what happens if the units glows orange so I assumed that it was the empty tank indicator. But the tank was full to the top. Today I called Honeywell and I told them what happened. They asked me for the model number. I expected some troubleshooting advice. Instead I was told the circuitry was defective and I should return it. And I definitely will, but will not purchase another Honeywell nor would I recommend the brand to anyone after the experience I just had.

      This product has qualities which may be good for some but not for others, which is why I rated it a 3. • it is extremely powerful. I have it in my small-medium sized bedroom in a ranch style house and although it keeps the room it's in comfortable, it also causes a lot of condensation on not only the windows in my room but throughout the entire house. • It's kind of poorly designed for frequently refilling. Even if it is empty, when you life the tank up it drips water and even does so when going to put it back on. • Lasts a long time depending on setting. On high a full tank will last around 12hours. The low setting lasts much longer. • The auto shutoff works perfectly. It doesn't make any noise to bother you in your sleep, it simply just shuts off and the light changes to red. Overall, great for the price especially if it won't be in constant use.

      Purchased this for my 6 month old daughters room. Have been using it now for almost two months, and we are very happy with the ease of use and quality. As is always, the designers did not think about ease of filling when they designed the top of the tank, it is a little unsteady on its own. Otherwise, it is fairly quiet, does a great job of humidifying the room, and is easy to clean and use. Also, since it is warm air, it has not have a filter/paper element to change. I find myself liking the soft glow from the selection switch, and our daughter likes the burbling sound that it makes. Makes sure to use distilled water if you have hard water. It makes a huge difference in how long these things last. A good product overall.

      Solid Humidifier

      Apparently shopping for a humidifier is a very difficult thing to do and I was hard pressed to find a unit with great reviews and features that I needed. I was more confused than anything. I found this unit in Best Buy and decided to give it a try based on it's availability and price. I have not been disappointed. I've had it for a few weeks and it does it's job like it's supposed to. It's easy to handle and provided a good amount of warm mist that eases my chest and throat and helps me sleep through these cold winter nights. No complaints so far. Only thing it's missing is an ultrasonic element to help keep it germ free. But so far, its a great bargain for the price.

      Nice inexpensive humidifier

      My kids have allergies and it was recommended that I use a humidifier in their rooms at night, especially during the winter. I cannot comment on its health benefits, but as a humidifier it works well. It only has 2 settings (low/high) so it is very easy to operate. My kids can turn it on at night and off when they wake up. The low setting provides an adequate amount of steam. Capacity is only 1 gallon, so it must be refilled a couple times a week. On the bright side, it's not too heavy when filled. My water is fairly hard, so after a week of use, the heating element gets quite a bit of build up. I bought a gallon of cheap vinegar just to clean it. The heating element is easily accessible, so cleaning is not difficult.

      Warm Mist

      Bought two humidifiers for the house in December 2017 a cool mist and a warm mist to see which we'd like and I love the cool mist and my daughter loves the warm mist so this one is in her room. I like the misting more on the cool however this one does make the room feel wamer also with the moisture it puts in the air. notice we have our heat lower with these on as well. We only run them at night and couldn't be happier really with investing in these little gems. We have a humidifer on our furnace and it's okay but it's not proven to be amazing or worth it really so went with these and have been much happier.
