Product Overview

This functional little humidifier makes maintaining proper humidity levels easier than ever. Our humidifiers work by adding invisible moisture to your environment by moving dry air through a saturated wick. Maintaining proper humidity levels between 30-50% in your home/office/workplace has been scientifically proven to help prevent the flu and allergies. Proper humidity hydrates your skin, alleviates dry eyes, scratchy throats and can reduce snoring. With a doctor's approval increased humidity can reduce asthma and allergy symptoms. It also protects fine furniture, musical instruments, collectibles and wood floors. Proper humidity makes you feel warmer allowing you to lower your thermostat setting which will save money.

Answer: 
Order the AirCare MAF2 from Home Depot. AirCare is Essick's brand of replacement filters and wicks.
If you want to pay more for a third party brand, you can find them on the internet. But WHY !?

2.5 Gal. Evaporative Humidifier for 2,600 sq. ft. is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 108.

However, the reservoir is not large enough, and it has to be filled too often. Also, having to turn it upside down and fill it at the sink, does not work if your faucet it too low. This has resulted in having to fill the reservoir using a cup.

It is long and narrow, This humidifier is compact enough to sit is a hallway and not be an obstruction. We like the easy water loading, easy operation, and it is relatively inexpensive. The low fan speed is very quiet, medium is acceptable, and high is loud but we never need it. On the first day we ran the fan on on medium fan speed to hydrate up from 30% RH. By the third day the RH had risen to 40% and now the low fan speed maintains it. The unit is located in the bedroom hallway about ten feet from the master bedroom door and about six feet from the house return air grille. On the low fan speed it is barely noticeable. I check the water level twice per day and refill as needed. So far we are totally satisfied.

I have a 1,000 Sq ft 2 bedroom apartment which is extremely dry. This unit is replacing a small 1 gallon (more meant for a single room) that couldn't keep up. It also didn't go through water nearly as quickly as this one. When I first plugged it in I blew through 2 tanks in 8 hours getting the humidity right. Now I go through about 1.5 tanks every 24 hours with it set to 45%. The lower 2 speeds are incredibly quiet, but the highest one is really full tilt! I especially like the auto-shutoff feature thanks to a water float-on the off chance I forget to fill it at least it's not running dry. I'd suggest using the Bacteriostatic Treatment (blue bottle). I notice a big difference in the smell-it's not musty at all with this added after 2 months on the original filter and hard water. Highly Recommend!

We have a large upstairs space where the bedrooms and kitchen are, thus we spend a lot of time there. This unit well humidifies the area all day. I usually need to refill the water tank once a day, I am running it from about 6 am until 10 pm. The unit does make some noise but its really just light background hum I would expect with an electric unit. Very happy with this unit!

I purchased this humidifier about a month ago and since then we have had very cold weather so am using it to the max. It is very quiet and is keeping the humidity pretty much where I want it. I do wish I had a larger water tank. I have to fill it several times a day and is usually empty in the morning. But it does do the job I expected of it. Am happy with the results.

It really puts the humidity in the house because I have forced hot air. The only complaint I would have is I wish there was a window strip on the tank so you are able to see when it's full, I always over flow when filling it.
