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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 April 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 14, 2016
