Product Overview

This light oak traditional credenza style humidifier is sure to compliment any decor. 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.

Customer Questions & Answers

can you remove the bottles for refilling - how heavy?

Asked by: Brandy
Yes, they simply lift out, very easy. They are 2.5 gallons each, so think about carrying two and a half gallons of milk and you'll be close to the weight.

Is it easy to fill with hose. I have bad arms and would find it hard to refill the bottles by tap.

Asked by: Kathy
The bottles are filled from an opening in the bottom. The short hose provided requires filling by tap. You could extend the hose, but still, the bottle must be lifted and it's heavy.

What are the dimensions of this unit? How is it filled and about how often? Is it easy to clean? Filters?

Asked by: iodine
28"Lx23"Wx16"depth - you need to make sure to leave space between the wall and the humidity detector (located on the power cord) so that it registers properly. I keep mine set on the level 1 fan and humidity on 40% and only fill tank 1 once daily and tank 2 about every 4-5 days. Filing frequency will be based on the fan setting, humidity setting, and square feet you are using it within. Obviously if you have it set at a higher humidity you will need to fill it more frequently. I use the bacteriostatic liquid so that cleaning is not difficult and it has a filter that I have not yet had to replace. It just sits within the unit, so it would not be difficult to replace once it needs replacement.

Can tap water be used or does it have to be distilled?

Asked by: 361ram
I fill with tap water and have no issues. It would depend on the quality and content of your home tap water. no one can generalize this for everyone. it is very individual.

I was very happy with this purchase in the beginning and for the most part I still am but for some reason the second tank has stopped "draining". The humidifier will say it needs filling and I lift up the tank and it is full. I have it on a level plane and it worked for the first two or three times I had to fill it but after that nothing I do seems to get it to work. Not sure what is going on. As far as I can tell nothing happened between it working and then not working - at least the other tank still works.

This product was easy to assemble and we had it up and running in no time. The only issue was the float which was warped like a banana . We called the 800 number and they promptly sent us another one. We would highly recommend this product! We have owned this product for about one month and it meets our expectations. The motor is quiet on the low speeds one and two.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Humidity back We had major dryness in our home and boiling water on the stove wasn't doing the trick. We checked into many different kinds before choosing this one. It does a great job and looks nice. The only downside is that even on the lowest fan speed it's noisy but you get used to it after awhile. Works great though ..

The appearance in person isn't as appealing to me as the pictures provided. The color isn't as rich and when manufactured the coloring/paint did not fully cover all the louvers on the lid. This lack of coverage makes it look a little cheap.

It arrived at the house in good condition and was easy to assemble once I found the parts hidden in the cardboard inside the unit. Once assembled, I filled both tanks and let it sit for about 2 hours to allow the water to initially soak into the filter. Once the filter was saturated, I turned it on and within 10 minutes felt the changes in the air of the room. I no longer wake up with a dry aggravated nasal passages and that is my favorite part. I do think that the lid part could fit better as it just seems to sit on the top and balance in the hinge rather than really snap in. The fan can be a bit loud if you have it on high, but any fan is loud when moving air throughout the entire home. I keep mine on a lower fan and humidity setting and am delighted that it seems to effortlessly keep up with the humidity level I have it programmed to without turning on all the time. My home is around 2000 sq ft and this works well for our size home. Overall I would buy this unit again and would recommend to anyone seeking an efficient humidifier. On average I fill one tank per day and about every 5 days need to also fill the second tank.
