      Q:Is this a top fill?
      by|Feb 20, 2023
      3 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  No, the slim part with the handle lifts off the machine, then you fill it at the sink and return it. Be sure to re-seal the cap, or it will leak out. A single fill will fill the lower tank, and a second fill will hold the water in reserve until the level is low enough that it needs more. Remember to seal the cap properly and put the tank in place properly, or you could end up with water on the floor. This happened to me once, and I have learned my lessen. But, be careful not to over-tighten the cap, as it might break the plastic.

        A:  This humidifier uses a side mount water tank. Bring tank to water source. And fill tank on the back side down. With rotating cap to hold water in tank. I find that this tank usage is very efficient. The tank can be filled twice to fill reservoir. Blessings.

        by|Jan 20, 2024

          A:  Hello, Sandy! Yes, it has a removeable tank that you can fill from the top of the water tank. - Sylvie, AIRCARE

            Q:Do you have to install casters?
            by|Jan 21, 2023
            6 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  The unit is made to be portable, so I installed the casters. Looking at its base it looks like it does need the casters to sit properly on the floor as there is a part of the unit that goes lower than the base and will not let it sit flat on the floor level. It needs to be level to work properly.

            by|Jan 24, 2023

              A:  No, they are optional.

              by|Dec 5, 2023

                A:  No

                by|Jan 22, 2023

                  A:  I don't use casters. I place the unit on a large step platform. Blessings.

                  by|Dec 29, 2023

                    A:  Hi, Patty. The casters would assist you in moving the product. –Sylvie, AIRCARE

                    by|Jan 23, 2023

                      A:  No, but why not? They make it easy to move around for cleaning.

                          Amazed!! Couldn't be any better!!
                          My husband is highly skilled in the trades. He's blown away with how quickly the house's humidity level increased. We are sitting at 53% humidity in the bedrooms and it was 38% and it increased within 2 hours. No leaks, easy to manoeuvre on wheels, portable, and better then an add-on furnace unit. No more nosebleeds, no more static, cant wait to sleep better. Worth every penny. A great investment. Highly recommend.

                            After reading reviews I thought this was the humidifier for us, I was wrong. Don't get me wrong it does a good job of adding moister to the air but it is noisy! Even of the lowest fan setting it is pretty loud. I guess if you could put it in a room that isn't used much the noise would be acceptable. I was also expecting the unit to be a little more well made, the filter just wraps around a cylinder part inside and has a gap that I had to stitch together. Also the unit and tank just sit on the base with nothing to latch them down, A child or dog could knock it over easily.

                            Hello, JB! Thr MA1201 is a big unit, and it's meant to humidify big spaces (which it sounds like it's doing for you) so, yes, it will make a little more noise on the higher fan speeds because it is working hard to churn out moisture. If the sound is bothersome to you (most of our customers liken it to a box fan), then you might try running it on high when you're away from home and turning it down when you're at home. -Melissa, AIRCARE

                            We have a 2200 square ft house and basement. This humidifier does a great job in humidifing the whole house even when temperatures were below zero degrees outside. It's easy to fill with the removable tank. I like the auto fan speed setting that adjust the 4 speeds according to the deviation from setpoint.

                            What a difference! Tried the Aprilaire 600 for the HVAC system. Didn't like it one bit, couldn't get the humidity above the mid to high 20's. This unit I could get it as high as I like even the 40% range. (Not when the tempreture is below freezing outside) Very Happy, made a big difference with my dry skin issues. Merry Christmas Everybody

                            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.

                            I'm very pleased with this humidifier. It lives up to all claims in the description, and is better than I expected. Obviously, it holds a lot of water, so it will run a while without re-fill. The "Auto" setting works wonderfully - the humidistat controls the fan, and the whole unit works exactly as want it to all by itself - All I have to do is put water in it. A great product for the price!!!

                            Glad I purchased it!!!!!
                            I was hesitant to order online since I am a "see it in person" person. After reading all the good reviews I decided to order. I'm glad I did. The item was delivered as scheduled and as soon as I received it, I opened it. The assembly instructions were very easy to follow. I immediately put it into service. The bottle is easy to refill and also easy to replace on the unit. It is very quiet and easy to program.

                            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 can’t 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 – the Essick MA 1201 has done what I expected.

                            This product performs magnificently!
                            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!!!
