Product Overview

This functional little humidifier makes maintaining proper humidity levels easier than ever. 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.

i need a filter for this how do i get one

Order the AirCare MAF2 from Home Depot. AirCare is Essick's brand of replacement filters and wicks. If you want to pay more for a third party brand, you can find them on the internet. But WHY !?

Ours is 2100 square feet and two floors. As long as the house heating system circulates air throughout the house, this humidifier will provide moist air throughout the house. The humidifier raises our home's humidity from about 30% to close to 50% (our chosen level), but at the expense of replacing the wick about every 2 weeks due to our hard water (and due to attempting to humidify the whole house with a humidifier designed for a large room).

Does it cut off if it runs out of water.

Answers

The mold spores, algae, or bacteria may either comes from the air or the water. You can prevent it by putting a chemical in the water at least once a week. You can buy it from home depot and manufactured by Essick and called Humidifier Bacteriostatics treatment.

The Humidifier runs all day because my house is so dry! This helps keep the moisture level up and what a difference it makes in how we feel. Our skin isn't dry and our eyes are not itchy anymore. I have tried to turn it on high just to see how it sounded and it is noisy. But leave it on A for automatic and it isn't so bad.It will hit the medium level fan when needed but turns itself down or even off when it reaches the chosen humidity level. It sits by my front door. If I leave the front door open for too long, it will switch to high fan and try to moisturize that cold, dry air I just let in. Amazing!

The filter is made of paper and does not have the support it needs. After less than a month one end came loose and ended up in the bottom water storage tank. Purchased a 2nd filter and the same result less that a month. The filter lacks support and if you take the top off for cleaning the old filter while wet can not be used, you will need a new filter. Design changes and a supported filter would make this an excellent machine.

Our house is a 2,680 SF one story rancher. It is long and narrow, This humidifier is compact enough to sit is a hallway and not be an obstruction. We like the easy water loading, easy operation, and it is relatively inexpensive. The low fan speed is very quiet, medium is acceptable, and high is loud but we never need it. On the first day we ran the fan on on medium fan speed to hydrate up from 30% RH. By the third day the RH had risen to 40% and now the low fan speed maintains it. The unit is located in the bedroom hallway about ten feet from the master bedroom door and about six feet from the house return air grille. On the low fan speed it is barely noticeable. I check the water level twice per day and refill as needed. So far we are totally satisfied.

Have been using this humidifier for a week now (mainly in the evenings). It works fine. I like its appearance. I have it in the the hallway just outside the three bedrooms. Adds needed moisture to my house (about 1700 sq.ft.). The water bottle is easy to refill.

Digital controls keep exact humidity level
This humidifier keeps the humidity at the exact level you set it. I have had other humidifiers in the past that would not turn on or off unless the humidity level changed drastically. Love it! Getting ready to purchase another one.

Does not last more than 8 hours, and I can barely tell a difference in the air dryness in one small room. I would return it but I threw out the box.

Response from EssickAirProductsJanuary 14, 2021
Hello, Ann! We are glad you took the time to leave this review, even if we didn’t get all of the stars. Local humidity levels in your area and the physical location of the humidifier can affect coverage. We recommend positioning your humidifier in the most centrally located room of your house (typically your living room). Having your humidifier in the middle of your home helps the humidity spread more easily and evenly. Our square footage estimates are based on homes with tight construction. Older homes, or those with poor insulation or cracks, may have a larger coverage area. If you’d like more help with this, please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-547-3888; our call center agents are available 7:00 AM – 6:00 P.M., CST, Monday through Friday. We are happy to help you. Thanks. -Melissa, AIRCARE
