Product Overview

This contemporary console style grey and black humidifier from our AIRCARE Designer Series 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.

Designer Series 3.5-gal. Evaporative Humidifier for 2,400 sq. ft. is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yes, it adds moisture to the air in my condo, but it is definitely being returned for the followi... Yes, it adds moisture to the air in my condo, but it is definitely being returned for the following reasons: 1. The housing is flimsy plastic with clips that are to hold the various pieces together. They don't fit together do to being mis-shaped and several have already broken. I have had the unit 3 weeks. It also comes apart when you handle it with any type of conviction. 2. The small door that is used to fill the unit with water is bent and doesn't stay completely closed. Again it is made from cheap plastic. 3. The sensor to determine when it needs to be refilled doesn't work. There is a small metal piece that is connected to a switch that is sitting on top of a float. When the float goes all the way down the switch is supposed to trip off. However the depth isnt correct and when you remove the top housing from the bottom the metal strip can get shoved to thebside of the switch rendering it stuck and even more useless. 4. Aligning the top housing to the bottom portion of the unit containing the water reservoir and wicks is a pain. You have to line it up exactly correct or it won't seat all the way down, which renders the refill indicator even more usless than in 3. above. 5. If you misaligned the housing on the first try it gets a bit stuck. When you pull on the housing to try lining it up again the housing comes apart (see 1. above). 6. Refilling with water takes forever because you have to slowly pour 3+ gallons through a small hole AND make sure you hit the smaller hole 4 inches below the first one. If you pour too fast you will splash water out the sides of the unit onto the floor. 7. The humidistat is touchy. It will turn off when a set humidity level is reached, but the humidity reading may drop 5 points in 10 seconds after shutoff triggering it to come right back on, then it will soon shut off again. This cycle repeats. I do have a 2,200 square foot home. If you are looking for a humidifier that adds moisture to the air this works, but I have found the unit to be of substandard quality and a real pain to use. I generously give one star because it does add moisture but withhold the other 4 due to its cheapness and difficulty in assembly, cleaning and refilling.

It seems to do the job of putting water into the air, but I haven't noticed that it has ever shut off by itself. I typically put 10 - 15 quarts of water into it daily... At this point I don't know if the space is that dry or what. I would have thought that it would have shut off automatically by now. I use a 2.5 quart pitcher to add water, not to tough. It is somewhat easy to spill, but not too bad. I know I've had it run low on water, but I see no indicator that tells me to add water. The positives are it looks nice and puts water into the air, negatives are filling it, noise on high speeds and it doesn't seem to shut itself off... (yet)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make sure you set up correctly We are very happy with this humidifier. The unit covers about 1200 sq ft in our home. The only issue we had was properly setting up to be sure that the float device on the wick frame is facing front so you can tell when there is the right amount of water. Once we figured this out, refilling the water to the proper amount was easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good so far. Mine works great so far, humidistat is accurate. I keep mine in a large room set at 55% speed 2 it distributes the humidity via the heating system to maintain 40% in the rest of the house 2000 square ft. When it hits 55% it shuts off until about 53% then restarts,uses little power. Yes it will push cooler air out,since it takes heat to evaporate water. When first starting up with a dry house say at 29% like I was it takes gallons and gallons of water to bring the all the furniture,rugs,walls up to that 40%,then once you hit your desired humidity, it only has to maintain humidity loss due to dry air infiltration from outside. Has enough features,auto shutoff,9 speeds, speed 9 is pretty loud but you are pushing a lot of air. Easy to fill.
