I purchased this model primarily because of the dimensions so it would fit into certain places around the house. It works well, and is quiet on the lowest of the 4 fan settings. I'll probably order another for upstairs. We have an 1880's Colonial with radiator heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and is simple to set up. This little unit really puts out the humidity! I was very impressed with how well it worked and it doesn't take up very much room either. I've used Essick products in the past and they last a long time. I gave my brother my old one (a larger unit) several years ago after I used it for 5-6 years and it's still working great! Before I purchased this unit, I went back and forth on whether I wanted to get a unit that was filter free, as that's the only drawback to owning a unit like this, but after reading the reviews of the filterless units and the time spent cleaning and filling them and the reliability issues, I finally decided to stick with what I know works. The little bit of money you spend for filters far outweighs the time spent cleaning the other units in my humble opinion. As they say, time is money, and who's not pressed for time these days? You can't beat this little unit for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I JUST BOUGHT A 2ND ONE OF THESE..... An evaporative humidifier is simply a wick or wicks, a water tank, and a fan. That is it. This unit, in a way seems like it is sort of cheesy or too simple. But that is the beauty of it. Simple to use, simple to fill, simple to clean, and a really effective wicking system with a huge water tank. I purchased a different tower style humidifier in-store and will return it. Why? it only puts out 1/2 the amount of humidity for the same price. This unit lacks a timer or shut off when empty. No biggie. It does have a set control that would allow it to shut off when it reaches a certain humidity level, but that feature is just annoying. On/off, on/off, on/off, etc. So I figured out that using the fan to control the amount of humidity is the better option. I compared the humidity level coming out of this unit using a humidistat vs. the one I'm going to return. I found this one produced about 75% humidity. The one I'm returning put out maybe 30% humidity. It appears to me the wicks in the one I'm returning just don't wick very well which means the fan cannot push out that much humidity. And the fan is weak on the one I'm returning. This is simplistic...the cover sits on a round plastic plate, that sits on the two filters with a plastic frame around them, which sit in some slots, and they absorb the water as you put the water in a big tub. But you know, it works. It isn't a quiet as the unit I'm returning but the one I'm returning cannot move the humidity level in a room. This unit is really easy to clean. Dump the excess water, reassemble, and allow it to run. It will naturally dry the wicks and the inside of the unit. Then you can sanitize. I have been using the anti-bacterial liquid with this which makes the water smell clean. This is the one to buy. Easy, simple, and not outrageously expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little humidifier I used this to replace a tower style humidifier made by the same company. That unit has 2 side tanks which had to be removed to fill and were akward to replace. This can be refilled easily by just pouring water trough the top grate on either side of the fan assembly. The lowest speed is quiet enough and can keep the humidity at the setting I prefer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great humidifier We love this humidifier. It is easy to fill and clean. It lets you know what the humidity is and allows you to set your desired humidity. It is powerful enough to cover a good-sized area. This has been a great purchase for us and has solved our nose and throat dryness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AirCare Humidifier Very simple to set up right out of the box - the 2 filters are easy to insert - I like the top fill feature - you simply lift off the top piece (fan) and pour the water into the unit - I use a gallon jug and add a gallon of water per day - it has increased the humidity level in my living room area which is about 500 sq. ft. - I don't know if it will cover 1100 sq. ft. as manufacturer says but for the area I'm using it in it has worked well on setting #3. As others have stated, fan setting #4 is a bit loud. I bought a separate humidity monitor so I know its working. I keep it set to 65 so it runs continuously until I shut it off. I also purchased the optional air filter for the top to help with air quality. This seems to be a nice humidifier so far and doing the job - I've been using it for 3 weeks - no problems with it - you can buy the water treatment solution but I just wash the basin once a week with vinegar and it stays very clean - I have hard water so I will replace the filters monthly or as needed. I am happy with this product and would recommend it to someone with a large area to humidify looking for a unit that is easy to use.
