Product Overview

This espresso 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.

5.6 Gal. Evaporative Humidifier for 3,600 sq. ft. is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.

The body is soft plastic, and the first one arrived damaged. Had to take it to the store for return and have a new one shipped. The unit must be exactly level to a bit downhill left to right for the second bottle to empty, there is almost no tolerance for a non level floor. The humidistat is fooled by the output of the unit and it cycles constantly instead of bringing the humidity up to the level requested. The fan speeds go from 1 (fast enought) to 2 (loud and really fast) up to 6 (jet turbine). It needs more 'lower' speeds and less really fast ones. The bottles need either their hose to fill (easy to break/lose) or faucets with hose extensions and you need to hold the bottle upright on its narrow end to fill it, requiring you to remove/reseat the valve every time you re-fill it.

They are simple to set up and the individual tanks are just the right size and give a full day's run before needing to be refilled. I would give a 5-star review except for the fact that the one I recently purchased didn't work properly (the control float would not trigger the fan unit). When I contacted the manufacturer, as directed in the packing materials, I was given the run around like I didn't know what really was wrong. I eventually got fed up and returned the unit to Home Depot. Fortunately, Home Depot has a great return policy and I had no problem getting a refund. I immediately bought another. This one arrived in perfect working order. I recommended this unit to my son, but he said his research had yielded mixed reviews. So quality control is a problem with the manufacturer. Be advised, but realize that Home Depot has a great return policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great workhorse This little work horse has solved our problem of not enough humidity in our workstation. Our printers need a 50% humidity level to function properly. We had to bump up from 20% and with this humidifier it not only did that but also cleans the air. Easy to reload tanks of water and clean the filter. Quite on low settings, but also has the power if needed. Light weight and on wheels

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Essick/Air Care humidifier Got this unit after receiving an Essick unit that was missing parts so I returned it. Out of the box the head unit was not functioning properly and we had to wait for a replacement. Humidistat reading is not very accurate so the unit can cycle on and off frequently. When running does a good job of putting humidity into the air but could have been engineered better and documented better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not perfect but very good! First the bad. The float sensor could've been done better (irritating to line up and mount to base). Next, the humidity level doesn't seem to rise very quickly (then again it's been a week since our old one died and it's been a cold winter). I also wouldn't be too heavy-handed during assembly because the plastic appears fragile. Lastly, the plastic mold around the thread for one of the tank's caps is causing only one tank to cross-thread. Onto the good. It's very quiet compared to our old unit even on the highest setting (old one used two fans instead of one larger one in this one). The controls are below the lid, preventing the toddler from easy access to the controls. The lid comes off very easily and the fan, controls, and motor are easy to lift out once the lid has been removed. The unit appears very easy to service with replacement parts easily available from the manufacturer. I did order the optional external air filter from EssickAir and it was easy to add on. I was also surprised to see a 4oz bottle of (frozen in my case) humidistat treatment in the box. Some have complained about poor instructions and it appears that the company added some more instructions to rectify that issue. The aesthetic of the unit are take it or leave it. If you grew up in the 80's like I did, it doesn't really bother me as it reminds me of how many appliances used to look but others looking for a more modern look might want to check out EssickAir's other models. To me, it just looks like an end-table that makes noise. I'm glad I waited for this to arrive and I'm currently happy with the purchase.
