This beautiful light oak console 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap Cheap Cheap... Arrived with broken cabinet in two places, non enclosed motor, non serviceable motor. This is my third one. I have not been able to find a better alternative. When will this country wise up and stop buying China junk? February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it I could tell the first night how well this worked. My skin isn't as dry and I could breathe better. I put this in the hall and it has no problem hitting all 5 bedrooms. It was also cheaper than anywhere else. December 17, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works Well in my Home! I had a horrible winter in this house the first winter because of all the Static Electricity. This year I was determined to deal with this issue much less. This product truly delivers what it says. Static is at a minimum throughout my 1700sq ft house . . even rooms that stay closed have humidity. Well worth the spend for me. December 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Whole-House Humidifier I purchased this humidifier after my reliable very old humidifier became too noisy to operate. This one requires lifting the heavy containers rather than just filling the unit, however, I am adjusting to that. The water containers should have a black fill-to-here line in order to easily know how much water to use. The small bottle of antibacterial chemical neither stated how much to use per gallon of water nor did the instructions. I had to call the company for this information. The humidity shown on the unit appears to be 15-20 percent higher than an independent gauge nearby. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value This was my first home humidifier - I found that it was noisy with speed 2, but could sleep fine with it on 1 - it is very easy to fill - I like that. It is very nice looking - was easy to put together - and will shut itself off if it runs out of water - so no overheating. I am glad I got it - it serves the purpose and looks like a piece of furniture - which is what I wanted - it does not stick out in my house. March 11, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Noisy The fan motor is extremely loud except for the lowest setting. Even on the lowest setting it sounds like the motor is in a bind. November 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A good humidifier but doesnt cover nearly like it says it does Set up was easy and operation is also easy. It really doesnt cover 2700 sq. ft. I have a 1 1/2 story house and the downstairs is about 2000 sq. ft. and running constantly it can only get the RH to 43% (and I do mean running constantly) as measured by a more sophisticated meter I purchased at HD The humidity level as measured by the humidifier itself is much higher than what my meter indicates. The "wicks" (boxy plastic frame with air filter looking material that wicks water from the bottom of the humidifier) really seem to be of good quality, many of these units have horrible wicks that droop when they get wet, the design of those that work with this unit are very sturdy. Also, there is no way that it puts 13 gallons of water into the air in a day. Nothing even close to that much. When I first set the unit up my homes RH was 23% and it put about 5 gallons of water in the air in 24 hours. Everything considered, its really a great unit. I cant say anything about how efficient it is at electric usage. I do like the 9 speed motor. February 5, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by love it! i have owned several room humidifiers, and they are such a hassle. in the cold winter months the air in my house (1400 sq. ft.) gets sooo dry with electric heat. this thing is awesome! have had it all winter and it has done a remarkable job. it is a little loud on higher fan settings, but if i keep it filled and running, i can keep it on the lowest setting. I really can't imagine that it would work as well in a larger home, but for me.. one of the best investments I ever made February 21, 2013
