My house is a little bit over 3,250 sq. ft., is there any recommendation in regards location of the humidifier to make sure it covers the whole house?
Asked by: zdesiree
Hello even though it states to cover 3600sqft it barely maintains proper humidity levels even for 1500sqft when heat is turned on in winter, unless you run it in at high fan speed. At high fan speed its way too loud and you have to fill water tank atleast twice a day. And talking filters unless you use bottled water you should be prepared to replace it every month that too they only last a month if you clean the filter atleast once a week or 10days. And this is the case with most humidifiers with wicks. If you can get a humidifier attached to HVAC go for it..... it might be costly but you will be happy you made that choice that's what am planning on doing for next winter tried and tired of standalone humidifiers.

3.6-Gal. Evaporative Humidifier for 3,600 sq. ft. is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 303.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent whole house humidifier Easy to assemble and disassemble to clean. Just lift the top off. The top can then stay plugged in for the filter timer. The bottom pan has ridges for the filter and for strength, but that makes it less easy to wipe clean. I have a 3000 sq ft ranch house in cold winter northern Illiinois, and the humidifier keeps up with the humidity level at low fan speed, which is pretty quiet. My only complaint is a fair amount of maintenance. You need to add bacteriostat to every container of water (1-2 per day for me in Jan-Feb), and you need to clean the water container and pan with vinegar and then bleach every 2 weeks. The filter lasts me about 3 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product This unit REALLY put out the moisture, is easy to refill and has simple trouble-free controls. Yes, as some have commented, like the competition the housing is a bit flimsy, and at the two higher speeds the fan is somewhat noisy. The answers: don't use the product as a step stool and try the fan's higher speeds at bedtime, although I seldom have the need for the higher speeds. I purchased this unit last fall and ran it the entire season with a single wick, which looked brand new at the end. Use of ESSICKAIR Bacteriostatic Treatment (approx. $6) is a must to keep things running efficiently and prolong the life of wicks, which are not cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Assemble Operates as advertised. Some parts seem a bit delicate so be gentle when removing and replacing the water bottle. Relatively quiet on low speed. Bottle gurgles occasionally as a large drinking water bottle in a dispenser when the internal tank is refilled. (Not a complaint, just an observation). Can definitely feel the increased humidity when the unit is operating. Used in conjunction with ceiling fans distributes the humidity through out the house rapidly. Used in a single story 1790 sq ft home in Las Vegas, NV. Not yet used in the summer heat with the air conditioner operating so cannot comment on operation under that condition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, works good We purchased this unit two years ago for our gas heated 2,000sqf home. This unit keeps our home much more comfortable when the heat is running, our humidity is between 20-30% when not using the unit, with the unit we can go 55% plus. The moist air allows us to set the thermostat lower than we used to and remain comfortable. Thats why I give it excellent in energy efficiency. The unit is simple and easy to use, the settings and adjustments have always worked very good for us, and the humidity reading is accurate (checked by a backup humidistat I have) Only complaints I have is that on the higher settings it is a little loud, and we go through two filters per winter. But those are manageable compared to the value.

I ordered this unit along with a spare wick and bottle of humidifier bacteriostatic treatment. The unit performs well. Just set it on auto and the humidity level you want and it operates on it's own. Refilling the water tank is easy at the faucet. We use RO water. When the unit said to replace the wick, I just flipped it over and it continued to work ok. I think they should carry this unit in the store. I have previously used ultrasonic units and belt driven units and this humidifier is much better. I have had the unit for 3 1/2 months. At night, in our bed room, we use one of the small 1/2 gallon cool mist humidifiers, which is easy to refill. This bigger unit takes care of the kitchen, living room and hallway.

After 2 weeks/two weeks of continue use, with a 50 Automatic setting, and using TAP water, it started to smell. I removed the cover and the whole top of the White Wick was black. I then removed the White Wick and as one of the buyers said, "Washed it in warm soapy water".. IT LITERALLY FELL APART...... So now, after 2 weeks, I'm left with a plastic container. .... An expensive humidifier...... $16.00 every 2 weeks. Guess I'M BACK TO MY OLD FAITHFUL VICKS ROOM HUMIDIFIER. ..... I an soo disappointed. I really had high expectations of this AIRCARE MODEL MA1201 3.6-Gal. Evaporative Humidifier for 3,600 sq. ft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4+ Very Good Some reviews were stating how it is a 3.9 gallon holding capacity and how the unit is able to DISPENSE up to 10+ galllons/day and they were worried they would have to fill it 3x's per day....well unless you live in the Arctic Circle, your air will not require that much moisture. This unit was up and running in seconds and had my NC home to 40% humidity in under 20 mins. Be sure to check online for proper humidity settings for your region/temp. I also only have to fill it up once every couple of days which is quite a relief. I was filling my last one twice/day. Overall a very good product and would be 5 stars but I save those for SUPER SPECIAL items that ROCK MY WORLD!!!
