Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie Excellent whole house humidifier
Easy to assemble and disassemble to clean. Just lift the top off. The top can then stay plugged in for the filter timer. The bottom pan has ridges for the filter and for strength, but that makes it less easy to wipe clean. I have a 3000 sq ft ranch house in cold winter northern Illiinois, and the humidifier keeps up with the humidity level at low fan speed, which is pretty quiet. My only complaint is a fair amount of maintenance. You need to add bacteriostat to every container of water (1-2 per day for me in Jan-Feb), and you need to clean the water container and pan with vinegar and then bleach every 2 weeks. The filter lasts me about 3 months.

Large tank and easy fill. This machine can do what it was made for. House has been so much better to breath in. Easy clean filters last. We have a softener so salt build up on filter is washed away quickly once a week. Filters last us longer than what is stated in instructions. I would buy this machine again. 5 STARS.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Excellent product--very satisfied after 4 months of use
Used the unit for 3 month now and am very satisfied with it. Works exactly as described and keeps the humidity very close to the desired level. Instructions are clear and if followed the unit works well. Even though I'm heating with a wood burning insert and the air dries out fast in the Winter, I've had no trouble in keeping the humidity set at 35% in 1500 sq. ft. Noise is not a problem at the low fan speed--hardly noticeable. Water leakage (which I had with my last unit) is not a problem. I have found that taking out the filter and rinsing it gently once a month seems to make the filter last longer. You have to do this to reduce mineral buildup on the filter. Overall, this is an excellent unit and well worth the price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MC1 Worst Humidifier Yet
This humidifier is probably the worst one yet. I had it running for less then 10 minutes, and it already broke. As I was switching through the fan speed the knob got stuck and won't come out again. Then the unit shuts off, and when I went to put it back on, it shut it self off again.
Not to mention the unit was dirty when I got it and the filter was mangled a bit. It looked like someone had used it previously.
Don't buy this humidifier. It's a piece of junk.

Quiet, attractive, easy to use, and this humidifier puts a lot of water into the air -- and it's automatic so shuts off when it reaches the set humidity, and let's you know when it needs more water!

We have a whole house furnace humidifier but it doesn't get the humidify above 30%. We purchased the Aircare MA1201 to add more humidity. The unit was easily and quickly assembled. Filled water bottle (1.9 gal) at kitchen sink and added 1 1/2 teaspoons of bacteriostatic and reinstalled bottle back onto unit. Set humidistat at 45% and fan at F4 (high) and ran for 24 hours then reset fan to F1 (low) and unit worked as expected. The unit is located in the great room on the main lever of our ranch house w/ walk out basement (3400 Sq. Ft.) in Colorado (Alt. 6700 Ft.) and is dong a great job. The normal outside humidify ranges from 20%-30%. Refill the water bottle about once a day. The humidistat is set in increments of 5%, it would be better if the increments were 1 or 2%. It still is a great humidifier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pano Good product great customer support
My first unit arrived damaged. The outer case was cracked. I contacted the company who quickly shipped me a replacement. Great customer service. Great to see a company stand by their product. Unit works as expected. I'm in a 2000 sqft colonial. I keep the unit upstairs and seems to adequately humidify the upstairs. Probably would need a second unit downstairs to match the humidity.
