    One of my favorite humidifiers.

    Posted .

    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!

    Good Product, Little on Noisy Side

    We use it in our Living-room and it does a good job making us comfortable. On a high setting it will make more noise then on low setting. The high setting usually drains the water tank in 5 hours and on low setting it can run almost all day. The unit has shown some water mineral (salt) deposits on the walls but after putting water softener tabs the deposits never redeveloped. All in all go for it.

    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.

    Best humidifier for price range

    This unit has a small foot print that takes up less space. It starts up quickly and has an easy to use selector switch. I intended to use it in the bedroom but, it is a little noisier than the one I have in there now. I use it in the living room now. It helps warm the room and makes the air feel more comfortable. I'm happy that I bought it.

    A Must-Have For Winter Months, Pays for Itself

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Solved our humidity problem, even in a large room

    Posted .

    This unit is small and inexpensive, but it's able to humidify a drafty attic bedroom very well (15' x 35') -- no more dry skin or irritated nasal passages in the winter! The reservoir will last an entire night on the high setting. The unit makes a slight hissing and occasional gurgling sound as water is heated. You need to clean the unit with vinegar and bleach regularly (every week according to the manual). Doing so has kept the unit running well.

    Nice humidifier and it still works. I'm too lazy to use distilled water so I have to scrape the mineral buildup off the heating element quite often.

    It works

    This is a warm air humidifier. I got this as per recommendation from a friend when she heard I had bronchitis. It has 2 settings.. Low and high, but I can't really tell the difference (except that the water lasts long.. Duh.. ) The reservoir is large... Enough to last throughout the night on high. It has a spot at the top that allows for essential oils like eucalyptus which is great for the sinuses but you don't really smell it for too long. It is very quiet... I've checked to see if I forgot to turn it on a couple times. The vapors are hardly noticeable to me. I slept well through the night with this.. I like it

    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.

    Value for money

    The only reason I use this humidifier is that this boils water. Because I have kids, I didn't want to worry about well-sanitizing the humidifier everyday. This is so simple: off/1/2 for the dial. With the dial on 2, it humidifies for more than six hours, which means it lasts during your sleep. The downside of this humidifier is twofold. Firstly, the residue of water piles up quite fast and it is not an easy task to clean it up. Second, it is hard to clean inside the water tank because the hole is too small. Bottom-line: If you are concerned about the sanitization, buy it.

    Solid Humidifier

    Posted .

    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.

    Works Well Somewhat Loud

    Posted .

    I purchased two of these to replace a couple of failed humidifiers in my house. They work well and hold enough water to make it through the night. Only slight problem is that they make a fair amount of noise while heating the water (these are warm mist). Noise is worst when it is first starting up and it gets a little quieter as the unit reaches operating temperature. Overall not bad for the price.

    Owned for 1.5 years when reviewed.

    Replaced this for the Honeywell larger cool mist humidifier as we were running into mold a lot with the filter. Pros are easy to clean, keeps a little warmer in winter. Cons would be can be used only for an average sized room. Need to be refill everyday. Clean every week and stay away from children. Although there are lot of cons, It keeps you peaceful at night without any issues.

    Good humidifier

    |
    Posted .

    This works well for a fairly large sized finished basement area. More than 400 square feet. Found that w/o it, the room humidity would get to 22% with the heat on. A humidifier with a greater capacity would do a better job for a room this size but definitely raises the humidity level for the area. I can get it to 41% after several hours running. It is also very quiet, even on high, which is louder than low. If you have hard water like I have, be prepared to use vinegar often to clean out the lime deposits. I do think having it on, also helps to keep the heat from having to constantly come on as a result of adding humidity to the air.

    it's a decent humidifier

    This has a warm mist however in the Michigan winter you really can't feel the warm unless you put your hand over the nozzle. Full tank will give you more than 7 hour mist in the highest mode and more than 10 hour mist for the lowest mode. BTW it only has two modes. It will be off automatically when the water is drained out although the lamp indicates it looks like it is still working but it isn't. overall it's pretty good humidifier with a low price

    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.

    Effective Humidifier

    |
    Posted .

    This humidifier has worked out quite well. Being the warm mist type, some steam simply rises and the moisture evaporates into the air. It's simple in operation and is quiet. It makes only a low gurgling type noise that is not very noticeable. If the noise is noticeable, the lower control setting can be selected. The two handled water container is easy to carry and handle for refillling.

    Working well till now

    Although there are some negative reviews about this Product on many forums, I thought of giving it a try. And what I have found is that it does work as expected. It's been about a month and I did not see any issues with this product till now. It is a warm mist humidifier, but the body is cold to touch. I always use filtered water, so did not see much sedimentation in the tank. The humidifier does provide enough humidity for a large room. It helps in avoiding dryness if you are running the heater.

    It's rated for about a 500 sq ft room, but I would say it's better suited to a 300 sq ft room. We can run it all night on the high setting with the bedroom door shut, but it never shuts off all night. It makes a little noise when running, but doesn't interfere with our sleep. It's a "white noise" kind of sound. One tank of water will keep it running for almost 2 nights on high, and we live in the desert.

    Good Health at a Good Price

    Posted .

    I've suffered from asthma and allergies since I was a kid, and a humidifier is an important part of achieving and maintaining good respiratory health. Plus, its non-medicinal and this model is very reasonably priced. This is my second warm-mist humidifier. The other Honeywell humidifier didn't break-it became encrusted with scale because I was lax in cleaning it. Also it was only 1-gallon and required refilling every 12 hous or so, even on the "low" setting. The 2-gallon capacity allows me to fill it in the mid-morning and have it last all day and night. I'm also keeping this humidifier very clean with a weekly white vinegar bath.
