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.

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

This is not the easiest unit to refill - especially with bad arms. This model has 2 - 2.6 gallon plastic bottles which when empty, need to be lifted straight up out of the unit to be removed. That's the easy part when empty. I have to take mine down to a utility sink where I have the refill hose attached to the faucet.
The refill hose has a rubber receptacle which fits over the faucet head. However - if your faucet head is smooth - it is difficult to keep the hose attached when you turn the water on. So you have to hold it on with one hand while holding the other end into the bottle. When filled - each bottle weighs 20 lbs. (yes, I did weigh it). You again have to lift straight up and then lower into the unit - one bottle on each side.
The unit itself works great and I am pleased with it's performance. I have to fill both bottles at least once a day - and sometimes more depending upon how often the furnace turns on in the cold weather.
Hope this helps.

Answer: 
The dimensions can be found in the Specifications. Two plastic bottles are removed from the top the unit and filled. We fill them about every 3rd day. Very easy to clean--everything comes out. An additional filter is offered, but I doubt if it is needed in a home environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essick Humidifier This is a pretty nice looking machine, and my wife and I started feeling quite warm within a half hour of setting the humidifier up. I turned the daytime thermostat down three degrees, and we still felt quite warm. It was a little tricky setting up, however. The instruction manual left a little to be desired in clarity. I had to guess where to install the float—it wasn't as pictured in the manual. The water bottles empty one at a time. But sometimes the second bottle doesn't empty, and you don’t realize it until you start to get cold. I do highly recommend this machine. The increased use of electricity should be offset by the money we save on reduced heating cost. I may need new bottle caps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from CREDENZA EVAPORATIVE HUMIDIFIER The humidifier works very well. I am satisfied with its performance. However, i'd like to point out one improvement. After the RIGHT bottle empties and the LEFT bottle is being used, when I refill the RIGHT bottle, the humidifier switches over to the RIGHT bottle before the LEFT bottle has emptied. It would be advantageous to have the LEFT bottle continue to empty before the RIGHT bottle begins.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap construction, but does the job. Cheap plastic construction and poor shipping protection resulted in a broken top, but a call to manufacturer got me a replacement top fairly quickly. Overall this looks cheap, and any fan setting over the lowest is just too loud, even though I set it up in a hallway away from where we spend time. The humidifier works very well, however, and I don't have to fill it too often if I keep the setting at 40% (anything higher resulted in condensation on my windows).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product doesn't work as advertised This was a replacement for my 16 year old Bemis humidifier. The problem is that the 2nd water tank doesn't kick in after the first tank empties. I have been in touch twice with the manufacturer rep. There is a thin silver strip that must touch the float so they claim. It does touch or the first tank wouldn't be working, I assume. They claim this also triggers the 2nd tank to "kick in". They claim that is the problem. They are sending me a new motor housing with a new silver strip. This is the key part of the product and is very poorly designed.Oh how I wish I could get a new Bemis humidifier. If this doesn't solve the problem, I am better off not having it and returning it for a full refund.
