This Space-Saver humidifier from AIRCARE is sure to complement 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.

I want a humidifier that will give me enough moisture in my bedroom at night without making so much noise that it keeps me awake. In the past, I've had humidifiers that didn't give enough humidity on the lower setting and were too noisy on higher setting. My bedroom is 11X16 but the apt. is VERY dry.

Thanks.

Answer: 
It's pretty loud on the higher setting. I definitely would not want it in the same room on high.
If you're only trying to humidify a single room it might do the job on the lower setting. On the other hand, you can put it in another room on the high setting and it should humidify the entire apartment.

Answer: 
No. This device is a huge water bucket with a filter and a fan, set on casters. I mean, if you're experienced enough to build your own float switch and valve, with complete confidence that you wont flood the building ... well, you wouldn't be asking that question. So, I'm left assuming you're hoping for something built in.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple, large volume, works This is a simple whole house humidifier with only a few moving parts, which means less parts to break. The base is basically just a tank while the cover is the fan. The cover fully removes which allows for the tank to be easily cleaned / washed through the season. Easy to assemble, fan is quite and the humidity dial appear accurate (compared to humidity readout on thermostat). I have this set up in the basement where we have a wood burning stove. Between the cold climate and wood burning stove, the RH in the house can drop to 30%, which causes skin and static issues. This humidifier, holding 6 gal, will help keep the RH around 40% where we like it and will not cost us an arm and an leg. Can easily add water w/out removing the cover. September 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aircare 6 gal evap.humididfier no problem setting it up. the one that came was a newer model but had the same number. it has the digital display for the humidity. March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Humidifier Every winter I said that I would get a humidifier. It was so dry with the heat. Now, I finally have one. This is a space saving model. It has a 6 gallon capacity with a two speed fan and an auto humidistat. There is a filter/wick that cleans the the air before it is released back into the room. It was very easy to assemble. There were only a few parts to install. The casters on the bottom to easily move the unit around, then the wick and the float rod inside, and finally the motor/ fan assembly on top. Then it is ready to add water to the front reservoir. The booklet tells about humidity levels. The manufacturer recommends adding Bacteriostat Treatment with each water fill up and disinfecting with water and bleach. It is also recommended to remove scale buildup with water and vinegar. The wick should be replaced the beginning of the new season. August 25, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 6-gal. Evaporative Humidifier for 2,300 sq. ft. Pluses: For the price paid, consider features included were what I should have expected. My next purchase will be for a humidifier with more features. Store was helpful in ordering the water treatment online. Recommend you have the store order the water treatment for you. Minuses: Recommended water treatment was not available at the store. Ordered for store pickup. Online purchase took over a week to deliver to the store. Recommend you not assemble this humidifier until you receive the treatment and read its "DIRECTIONS FOR USE". February 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adds Moisture Quickly, Auto Run Feature, Wick is easy to replace Living in snow country, you haven't felt dry air until it's been -20 with 5% humidity. Your skin cracks, your hands are raw, and you can make enough electricity when wearing socks across carpet to start a bulldozer. A good humidifier is a must for helping kids and adults get through bad colds as well. That's where this 6 gallon spacesaver humidifier comes in. It assembles fast out of the box, you only need to insert the rolling casters on the bottom, install the wick and fill it with water. At the most you'll be using this in 20 minutes. The wick is enormous, and it absorbs a lot of water, which means as the fan draws air across the wick it can humidify the air quickly and keep it that way. The fan itself has two speeds. I prefer low speed as it's quiet, but that's a personal preference. The canister base holds six gallons of water and this should be good for an entire day once the humidity level has reached what you want, around 40% or so for us. When it's new you will go through more water until the air stabilizes at the level you want. I check it each morning and keep it full. The humidistat dial does not have percentages listed. What you do is run the machine at the highest setting until the air reaches a level you are comfortable with. Then slowly turn the dial backward until the machine turns off. It will then keep the humidity level at that setting for you. If the machine gets low on water a light will come on letting you know you need to refill. Refilling is easy, simply take a pitcher and pour the new water through the large fill grate on the front of the machine. The wheels on the bottom make it easy to roll this over to the sink or bathtub for cleaning or filling. Basically this has everything you need. It's reliable, it can humidify most homes and it works quietly and efficiently. When it comes time to replace the wick you can order them from Home Depot. You'll need wick # 1043. I confidently recommend this humidifier for the upcoming Winter season. It's just what you need. September 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Really great humidifier This works really well. I felt the affects immediately and feel so much better. I would give this 5 stars but it really needs a "fill to here" on the outside or a window. to see the water level There is a marker on the inside and a light to tell you when you need to add water on the outside - but without taking it apart - you don't know actually where the water level is. February 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Item Works well, has options for settings for fan speed and humidity. Filling with water is a little tough to see fill line. February 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by recommended Works great and doesn't overload the air with excess moisture. February 23, 2016
