      For small size rooms, works efficiently & quietly

      Posted

      I tested this unit in my office/bedroom with a hygrometer (measures room humidity). My room is about 120sf (below the 150sf for which this unit was designed). Before starting the Honeywell Mistmate, I measured the humidity in the room at 38% with my hygrometer. I then started my ceiling fan, but in reverse so that it pulled the airflow upward (most ceiling fans have a reversing switch on the body of the unit). The reason I wanted to use with the ceiling fan was to pull the mist upward and then disburse in the room rather than have it fall too quickly. I also closed the bedroom door. After getting the ceiling fan running, I then started the Mistmate and ran on the highest setting. In less than an hour the humidity reading had climbed to 59% (and still climbing). So, several lessons learned. The first is that the Honeywell does do an effective job raising the humidity level quickly in this size room. The next lesson is that it does have the ability to raise the humidity above a comfortable level depending on room size, and with door closed. So, if you buy one you will need to experiment with your own room. Also, be aware that you might want to reduce the dial setting at night so that the room humidity does not climb too high while you are sleeping. From what I have read, keeping the humidity around 50% is good. So run it on high to get to ideal humidity and then dial it back. Also keep in mind that having too high a humidity could cause mold growth. The unit is very quiet with a slight hum and occasional bubbling sound. It is a nice size and shape. The unit will automatically shut off when out of water, which is nice. The .5 gallon reservoir is good size for filling and carrying. I like that the unit does not require a filter. Filters can get expensive. One other tip: if you run on your desk, make sure the mist points away from the desk, otherwise the moisture will begin to soak into papers on your desk. You might invest in a hygrometer. A good, but cheap one, can be had for less than $10. The most important tip is to use the ceiling fan (but not blowing down, of course). Enjoy your Mistmate!

      My 6 year old's humidifier went out and in the hunt for another one, I came across this one. I was sold on size, price, no filters and whisper quiet. The first couple of weeks it was perfect. Actualy too perfect. it was so quiet my son kept waking up several times a night because he "heard something". Fast forward. I bought a white noise machine so we could all sleep...and then my Honeywell started "whining". it now generates a medium to high pitch whine or whistle when you turn it on. What the heck happened. Now we have to jiggle, shake and turn it off and on over and over until it comes on quiet. Sometimes I just turn it on 30 minutes before bedtime and let it whistle itself to "sleep". Oh well, i will return for another one. Hopefully this one was defected.

      I bought this cool mist humidifier few months ago during peak of the flu season. After a quick research, I found this small humidifier on sale at Best Buy, and decided to buy the cool mist instead of warm mist one due to safety concern (read from other reviews). Even though it’s small (0.5 gallon) humidifier, it gets the job done! And, it’s easy to refill the water, not too bulky/heavy to move around. Also, you can adjust the mist volume to your liking, not like other products only have low/high settings. It’s easy to clean as well! Overall, I am happy with this purchase!

      After researching on Consumers Report about the best room sized humidifier to buy, I had my heart set on another brand. As luck would have it, Best Buy didn't have any in stock. But my sinuses were screaming for a humidifier and the Honeywell sat next to the empty spot of the much more expensive one I wanted. This one is very quiet, is easy to use, very reasonably priced and after several weeks, has functioned very well and the pressure in my sinuses has been greatly relieved. It's hard to imagine another brand doing anything more or better than the Honeywell. I have been using distilled water to minimize the frequency of recommended cleaning.

      Easy set up and runs quietly! I had ordered another brand online but picked this up because I couldn't go one more night coughing my head off! This unit is the perfect size for a medium room; I used distilled water and had no problems whatsoever. The vapor is just the right amount and it closes securely with no danger of water spilling out. I returned the other brand I had ordered online, because it did not function as well as this one, and it cost twice as much! I would not hesitate to recommend this to family and friends!

      Good little humidifier

      Switched over from warm mist to cool mist humidifier. Overall, I've had no problems. Tested it out on high setting to see how much the temperature would decrease in a 100 sq ft room closed off. Dropped the temperature down about five degrees but if you run it on low, not much change if that's something you're looking at. It does make a noise when it's running but nothing out of the norm. On a full tank of water, it'll go on all night and part in the morning before needing a refill on the lowest setting.

      This little humidifier is great for a small environment. You would need to use distilled white vinegar every 2 weeks to remove the mineral buildup that would clog the cold mist discharge. The device is 2 pieces with the top tank that requires you to flip it over to fill. Be careful not to tip the humidifier over because it is 2 pieces requiring 2 hands for transport. Water will spill out if you just pull the top handle. There's a small reservoir on the bottom base. Otherwise runs quiet and is a good value.

      I've been wanting to get one of these for over a year now and knew I should have spent the money on a better one. Not happy with this product. The first day I used it, it was amazing!! You could see the mist coming out and I could breathe so much better. I've tried for a month now to get it going and it barely puffs out anything. The canister stays full now, which I thought is strange because the first night it was almost empty. I would return it but I think I'm past my return date.
