Rated 5 out of 5 by ******** Best Humidifier I Ever Had !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Humidifier is real easy to add the water through front door opening. No heavy jugs of water to lug around. Pros: Shuts off when it runs out of water. Can't believe how much water unit puts out in one day!!!! Comes with remote control that tells you humidity and temperature. March 8, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worked fine for one season We bought the look and space saver. Worked fine and didn't mind having to fill it daily. However, this season it has begun to make a rattling noise when running. It is not the motor as it doesn't rattle when the base is separate. You can make it stop by holding it. Called the company but no return call after a week. Ready to toss it if I can't get the rattle to stop. December 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by whole house humidifier Easy set up and whilst a tad bulky, the pedestal design is definitely more aesthetically pleasing than the console version. The unit even has a marble (real!) insert on which a plant or vase or similar can be stood, thus dressing up (or disguising!) its appearance somewhat. Nine (9) fan settings give a wide range of 'volume' when the machine is running, from a very gentle purr for overnight hours to an almost supersonic level which raises the humidity in a heartbeat! I am sensitive to noise (ticking clocks, a/c units etc) and definitely recommend this machine for its genuine "quiet setting". The water top up is easily accessible and the remote control allows you to alter settings from across the room. My +1500sq ft apartment is so much more comfortable with the humidity level having risen in just the first hour of use from the mid 20's to a comfortable 45. I highly recommend this unit and its value for money when weighed against other options. December 7, 2010
Rated 2 out of 5 by Don't buy the EP9R 500 Humidfier I have owned this unit for 60 days and it has NOT been what I thought it would be. Right out of the box the float had a hole in it so it was not useable until Essick sent me a new float. Now the fan is getting noisy.. I guess I will be replacing that too. It has a remote that I could do without. The "manual" control on the unit and the remote humidity sensors don't even come close to reading the same. Also filling it is weird. You have to put this funnel in it but you can't see how much to fill it unless you stop filling and get on your hands and knees and look really hard to see the fill line. hmmm I had a Kenmore for over ten years and I wish I had another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Works fine. Easy to use. Been using this unit for a week now. Brought the humidity up from 10 to 30's in a couple of days in our 2000 sf home. Very easy to use. Very easy to fill. Unit shuts off and flashes "F" in the display when it's time to refill. Add 3 gallons of water through the front and it's ready to go again. Can't get much simpler than that. Fan is quiet on low. Of coarse the higher you set it, the noisier it gets. We just leave it on low all the time. It does the job just fine. January 16, 2013
