PRODUCT OVERVIEW

This attractive mini-console unit adds invisible moisture to your home by moving dry air through saturated wicks. The compact size makes this unit ideal for apartments. 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.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. November 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Option for a larger room/ small apartment I have had several humidifiers of various types over the past few years. I have now owned and run this one for two months. It is very simple and straightforward - it is basically just a fan sitting atop a bucket into which two wicks are submersed. Don't let this simple design put you off. Even on the lowest setting, this unit puts a gallon or two of water into the air each day.. It is NOT silent - no humidifier is - but you can still hear the TV (or a conversation) across the room when this unit is running just a couple of feet away from you. Higher settings are noisier, but (presumably) are are useful when rapid humidification is needed. January 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best purchase ever We weren't sure if the "whole house" humidifier would work properly for a two story house so we bought two this fall - one for upstairs, one for downstairs. This has been the first winter (and a particularly harsh one) where I wasn't plagued by itchy, dry skin and my husband was spared, dry, bloody sinuses due to running the heat non-stop. (Each floor is about 1100 sq feet.) We placed each humidifier in a central location. They are extremely easy to use and refill and, if on lowest setting, very quiet. I would purchase again and would highly recommend. Make sue you use the anti-bacterial solution. (tsp per 3 gallons of water.) My only complaint is with Home Depot, itself. The website/customer service apparently does not carry the correct replacement wicks for this unit and sent us the wrong items (not sure where to get replacement wicks but can probably find them on good old Amazon.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Essick in general seems to have control issues We bought an Essick humidifier from Lowes. The mechanicals - blower, wick, filter - all seem to work just fine. No issues. However, after a week, it stopped working unless you jiggled the cord on which the humidistat is mounted. Seems like an odd place to put it, but in any case, it was loose or otherwise intermittent. We returned it and they didn't have any more in stock. Went to Home Depot and bought this one. Works fine until it reaches the set point and then turns on and off every 5-10 seconds. The internally mounted humidistat (not on the cord like the other Essick model) seems to be in the air flow from the humidifier, and so when it senses it's dry, it turns on, and when the unit blows moist air, it senses that and turns off. There's no "hysteresis" i.e. if you set it to 50 it should turn off at 55 and turn on at 45 so that it doesn't do what it's doing - switching on and off repeatedly. Returned this one and now the dry season here - winter - is over and we'll do it all again in the fall but will look for a different brand. April 15, 2014
