Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chas Performs as Expected
The MA 1201 was purchased to treat a 2400 square foot two level home with 900 square feet located on the lower level. I installed the Essick MA 1201 on the lower level next to an air duct return. I canât think of anything negative to say about the performance. I have checked the humidity level on both floors with a stand alone hygrometer and it always reads 2% to 3% of the setting on the MA 1201 which is 35%. When initially installed I ran the heating system fan continuously for a short time until the humidity was consistent through the house. Fill times have ranged from 2 days to almost a week. This is generally due to the setting and the outside temperature. With really cold weather filling will be required more frequently along with the possibility of having to move the humidity setting to a higher level. I have no complaints â the Essick MA 1201 has done what I expected.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by yakfishnick Good product that does the job.
Simple to fill the tank. Simple to replace the filter. Simple to clean. First fill of the tank drains into the pan. Then you refill the tank and put that into place. As the water in the bottom pan evaporates, it is replaced by the water in the tank... a nice system that gives you two tanks of water for the humidifier. I usually refill the tank once per day. Has four fans settings. Settings 1 and 2 are fine for running without disturbing your peace and quiet. Settings 3 and 4 are pretty loud, but I do use them when I want to get the humidity to a set level fast. I'm able to get the humidity in our 2200 sq ft house with loft to a comfortable level and keep it there. Before the humidifier, our house was static electricity city with all inhabitants having the cracked dry skin to match. That's no longer a problem, and that's what I wanted the humidifier to do.

Immediately, I was amazed on the sleek design of this evaporative humidifier. The bottle was so easy to fill by faucet, very light weight, and was placed back into the base effortlessly. The 4-speed fan is extremely quiet, and I love the auto humidistat feature, which only runs to reach the desired humidity level. I am very impressed with its performance and highly recommend this product!!!

This humidifier was needed to do a much larger job then a normal table top humidifier. It was on 24/7 for 3 weeks straight and not one problem. Refilling was easy due to the design and did not have to do frequently. Was very quiet (never turned fan above 1st setting) and kept out of the way so didnt really notice it much. Need to get the bacteria killing formula purchased separately, highly recommend it or you will start to notice an odor. Can break down into smaller peices to make storage easier when not in use. At this price point, it is a great choice.

We live in the high desert of Wyoming and have very low humidity. Our house is 3,800 sq. ft. (upper level and finished basement) and has a closed boiler system. I bought this unit based on reviews here to replace a smaller unit that quit working and don't know when I've been so happy with a product. We've had the unit a couple of months.
It is very easy to fill by laying horizontally on the center divider in the kitchen sink and swinging the spout over the opening. The tank's carry handle makes it easy to transport to the unit.
We ran the unit on high when we first got it to get the humidity up. Now, I refill twice per day and the unit keeps the humidity at 35-40% on the low setting which is very quiet.
