Our innovative pedestal humidifier with stylish surface insert is sure to compliment any decor.

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.

Answer: 
A small lightweight object of any kind could eventually fall off due to the small vibrations from the fan when it is on high speed. At the lowest setting through the sixth setting, there is no vibration at all and I wouldn't hesitate placing a small plant on top.

Answer: 
You can google this and get an answer. The reservoir has an arm that let's the unit know when the water level is too low. This lever must be in the correct position as you drop the top section onto the reservoir area. It's a little tricky, but once you get it you don't have to deal with it again.

Answer: 
The reservoir is the base of the unit so it's technically not removable. The upper part of the humidifier comes off clean with no attachments but it is big. So the answer is yes but it would be a pain in the neck - much easier to fill using the front port using a pitcher. I use a large plastic pitcher and I keep the humidifier spout attachment in the pitcher when storing the pitcher.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easiest way to fill is.... This thing really will put out the moisture. The only problem is the fill method is stupid. From the moment I took it out of the box I realized that the fill spout would never work, or at least I would never use it. But ,like I said, the moment I took it out the box I realized how easy the top assembly comes off the unit. to refill I simply lift the top assembly off, wheel the unit to the sink, fill with hose or bucket, wheel back, replace top. very easy, no spill. The ceramic tile is real ceramic and it matched my decore perfectly. I did find, however, that I need to run the humidistat much higher than the setting I want to achieve. I run it at 60% to get 40-45% at the other side of the room. Not a big deal but just a word of warning. I do think this unit is overpriced. I feel like it should have been less than $100. That being said it is one of the least expensive humidifiers for the capacity it puts out. I am heating my 16'by 80' mobile home with a pellet stove. Last year my r.h. was around 14-16% I was 80f all winter with 4 ton of pellets in central Maine. Very cold outside. this year I want to maintain a 40%r.h. and drop the temp to 75f. we shall see. November 11, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase The fan is loud when the fan speed is set above 1, however I have not had a need to set it higher. You should consider where you will place the humidifier in your home as the air comes out of the humidifier on both sides rather than the top or front. I like how attractive it is for a humidifier; however with the air coming out on both sides I found it challenging to find a good location for it as I didn't want it blowing out onto my furniture. March 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very much suggest this item Read the many different reviews, saw this unit at another store and liked the overall dimensions, but was unsure how it would perform, and sound. After a quick delivery from homedepot.com, I set up this unit in no time at all, filling is very easy with the door - I would only suggest a slightly larger door but it works, the controls are super easy and quick. the LOW speed is whisper quiet, the other speeds (9 altogether) are louder but ok. Not sure how accurate the display is at telling the humidity , I have wall mounted old fashion gauge that says different than the digital by about 15. So overall I would highly suggest this unit, price, performance, appearance and size !! February 14, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great while it lasted. I purchased two of these units and they worked great. After about 40 days however one of the units fans quite working. The display still works but nothing else regardless of the setting. Hopefully the other one does not meet the same fate soon! April 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly What We Needed Have had the unit approx 4 wks. House is 2500 sq ft. Previous trouble with dry Indiana winter. Does a great job for us with fan setting of #1. Our main living area is 30x15 plus large kitchen area and master bedroom. House much more comfortable now. Watched the on-line video at HD on unpacking and set up. All very easy. We fill the unit 1x/day. We process about 2 gal of water a day. Fan setting above 2 is too loud but a setting of 1 or 2 does a great job for us. Unit is nice looking. We have it in our main living area. We fill it using the front fill door or we take the top off. Either way works fine. We tried to use the extra fill piece. We spilled using it. No spills using only the fill door and a pitcher. Set humidity at 50%. Unit works great for our needs. Would recommend this unit. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Fantastic for price!! Has helped greatly, we use it to humidify three large rooms March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well! We live in So Cal in the desert mountains so this time of year is dry especially with our pellet stove on. We got this because I kept having headaches and bloody noses in the morning. After a few days of being set at 50% (instead of 9, lol) we've noticed a huge difference. We did put it in our room so I can't really comment about the square foot coverage. It's pretty easy to add water to the tank with the funnel thing included, I wish it were easier to see the fill line though. The sound level on 1 is very nice, acts as a white noise. Overall, very pleased with this. December 30, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sort of OK Unit looks decent. Somewhat large. If you have a power glitch, the unit does not reset. Fan is noisy on any setting above 3. Have had it for 3 months and one of the segments on the digital display has failed. My last unit was a roto-belt type from Sears. Had it for I think over 30 years. I don't think this one will last that long. The price on this one is it's best selling point. March 12, 2016
