    Slightly noisy and leaks

    Posted

    I purchased this 12/27/18. When this was working properly, it was fine. Like all ultrasonic humidifiers, it emits a very high pitched noise which isn't noticeable all that much during the day but very noticeable at night. It's bearable and you eventually get used to it. On 1/15/18, I had turned it on in the morning and noticed a sharp "whirring" sound. This occurred on all "settings". I let it run for about 30-45 seconds before turning it off. I tried it a few more times and eventually, the sound went away. I thought it just might be some kind of quirk. When I went to turn it off I noticed that some water had pooled on the base. Nothing drastic, about the length and width of a roll of quarters. I thought I'd splashed some water onto the dresser when I placed the tank back on after a refill. I woke up this morning and water was everywhere. I'm not exactly sure where the leak is coming from and I don't know if the leaks are a result of the noise I heard. I'm going to run it overnight again to see if I can find out exactly where the leak is coming from. Either way, I wanted to leave this comment here to warn others. I've sent a request to the company to see if they'll provide a replacement. The reason I'm not giving this a one-star review is that the opening to the tank is large enough to fit my hand in there to clean. That's pretty useful!

    My husband and I are expecting and needed to get a humidifier before our little one came, so I researched and learned EVERYTHING there is to know about humidifiers. I chose this one because it didn’t require a filter, has a cool mist rather than a warm one, & it doesn’t break the bank. It has been wonderful so far!! Soon after we bought it I came down with a cold and slept every night with it in my face. The adjustment features are my favorite part because it allows me to choose how much mist I need/want as well as change the direction of the mist. I also love the automatic shut-off feature and how it is really easy to clean!! Just be careful when picking it up and putting it down because the base can detach pretty easily and the leftover water will go everywhere.

    Decent humidifier

    This humidifier is decent. It could benefit from a longer run time considering its size. A bit too big for the end of your bed side table or dresser. I keep mine on my bed room desk. Replacing the water is a bit cumbersome and no matter how hard I try, I always spill a bit of water. Filling it up strictly from the bottom is also slightly annoying. This could be alleviated if they allowed the user to refill the reservoir while upright and connected to the base. Noise is average and it 'gurgles' from time to time. Not a big deal for me, as I always sleep with a fan on that provides white noise. Use purified or distilled water only for best results and minimal maintenance.

    Recent surgery caused me to have extremely dry skin which was exacerbated by the very cold weather we have been having. I bought this humidifier for the living room and a similar but smaller one for the bedroom. They worked extremely well for the first month or so but over the last couple of days the mist put out by the larger humidifier is less than half of what it used to be, We don't leave water in either machine when it is not in use and cleaning it with vinegar as recommended has made no difference whatsoever, Unfortunately, I just discovered that Best Buy has a ridiculous 15 day return policy. 15 days! So I guess we are out the price we paid

    The dry air caused by our pellet stove was causing many problems in our home (dry eye, fly away hair, coughing, dry skin, etc.). This humidifier was extremely quiet, user friendly and nice looking. The ONLY sound I can hear is the dripping of water which actually sounds like light rain drops falling occasionally. It's more of a calming sound than anything else. But, I cannot hear the fan running. I love that it requires no filter to replace. All the dry air problems that we had are now under control. And, BTW, I am not normally easy to please. I gave this product the highest rating because it was deserving.

    We purchased this not to long ago. Nice large tank compared to the smaller one we had. The motor is quiet but you can hear the water dripping all night. We have a Crane that made a buzzing noise from the motor and the water dripped as well but not quite as loud. Maybe it's just ours but the water dripping sometimes makes a noise that sounds like someone is knocking. Kinda startling when you are trying to fall asleep. Also maybe it is our water but it is leaving a white powder on the humidifier itself. At first we thought it was because of it being black since our old Crane was white. A few days have gone by and now our dresser is being covered by the white powder. Our Crane definitely doesn't do that.

    Epic Fail

    I was so excited to get this home today. I got home, excitedly opened the package, read the directions, and thought wow this is easy to use! I filled the tank up, carried it up my stairs to my room, plugged it in, and turned the dial on only to discover the loudest whining noise that no person could ever sleep through. Returning it tomorrow and researching other brands. Honeywell, what happened to your tried and trusty brand? Epic fail. And the notice in the box about not returning it to the store? Yeah, not listening to that. Need something else now and not wasting my time sending it back to you.

    I bought this to maintain a healthy humidity level for my guitars which I keep on stands against the wall in my home office. It does a nice job and uses about a gallon of distilled water approximately every two days. The only thing that is questionable about the humidifier is whether it can work for a 350 sq. ft. room which is about the size of this room. If I don't keep the unit close to the guitars the humidity drops quite a bit according to my hygrometer although I don't have it set to maximum. I think a larger room might require two of these.

    The misting part works great; runs a long time... but that is outweighed by a major design flaw. To change the water is such a hassle.. it has to be dismounted from the base and leaks water when you turn it over and carry to sink ( which I must do in order to refill). It actually drips everywhere as soon as it is picked up. Clean up after changing every other day is super annoying. Another plus tho is automatic shutoff. - we are looking for a better model

    I love this humidifier. It’s easy to fill and clean, it’s big enough to have a fill last 5 nights, and small enough to fit in well.The mist function is silent, the unit does gurgle and drip during use. However I have never had a humidifier that didn’t gurgle and drip a little. I keep it on my dresser at the foot of my bed, and have a small fan on my nightstand so I am not bothered by any extra noises. Since I started using it, no more sinus headaches, nosebleeds, or dry eyes.

    i purchased this humidifier for my 18 inch fan. i position the humidier on the center to bottom to create a fine mist, misting fan the temperature should be lowered by 10 to 15 degrees which is ideal for cooling down the room your occupying. its way better than an evaporative cooling fan. of course you need to partially open the window. this cool mist humidier 1 gallon should last for 8-12 hours. the cool mist humidifier is cool and dry to the touch.

    Does its job

    I have a Vick’s humidifier to compare this product. This is ok and does its job. But product is not as finished as Vick’s . Few annoying issues are - it doesn’t sit quite well on top of the base and sometime takes patience to do so. Plastic quality is cheaper, since it is black hence prone to white water marks and deposits. Running fine otherwise.

    This product works great for what I needed! It was purchased to use in the living room, and it does the job nicely. Most of the time it runs on just below the medium setting to keep the room pleasantly comfortable. The water supply lasts for almost 2 days at this setting before it needs to be refilled. The only drawback is that it fills from the bottom, but if you’re careful, there isn’t a mess with water drips. I would highly recommend this product.

    Excellent Humidifier

    Have been using this almost continuously for a couple months without an issue. At first, it made a gurgling noise frequently but has since subsided and is for all intents and purposes very quiet. It seems to be adequate for our 200 sq. ft. bedroom and the issues related to dry air have subsided. Some complain of white residue but using filtered water with regular cleaning we have never experienced that issue. Great machine for the price.

    I've been using the Humidifier for a while now and am really pleased with how well it works to humidify my bedroom. Only inconvenience is when it runs out of water and we have to refill the container. Otherwise. Really good device. I have used other brands previously and always seem to have had problems with them. This one is well made and works well giving a good spray.

    The past decade of Winter or mountain trips always end the same: Miserable sinus issues. Finally purchased this mist humidifier this winter. All I can say is that it’s nearly a miracle. The humidifier works perfectly, runs quietly, packs back into the box easily for transport, and it has transformed my winter travel by saving my sinuses. Love this thing!

    I have purchased 3-4 other brands of humidifiers for medium-sized rooms and the Honeywell is by far the best one. It is easy to set up and maintain and emits a steady quiet flow of cool air. Even bedside, it is quiet and constant and definitely helps relieve sinus congestion when windows have to be shut from the cold. I recommend this humidifier for similar needs.

    This sits on my ironing board in my bedroom and does the job well! The moisture from the mist really helps with dry skin during Winter! Holds a good amount of water so you can run it for a couple of nights or so before re-filling the tank. Plus I am a very light sleeper so the fact that this is very quiet makes me happy with this purchase. Helps that I bought it on sale and used my rewards, so it was a great deal!

    I like that it's compact and can sit in corners of the room. One fill of the tank lasts longer than a day, or longer if you dial down the amount of humidity it releases. My living room has been so dry all winter and this does a great job in a pretty large room. It made us so much more comfortable that we bought a second one for the bedroom. When you pull the reservoir it drips a little, but not a bid deal; it's water.

    Great humidifier for cats asthma

    My cat was recently diagnosed with asthma and my veterinarian recommended that we place her on a humidifier regimen 45 minutes daily. So far the humidifier has done its job in relieving my cats pain. She has benefitted greatly from this product and the results have been amazing. Totally would recommend this to anyone who owns a cat with asthma especially in places where it gets dry during the summer.
