Hello! Our bacteriostat treatment is used to treat mold, mildew, and odor. You can use the white distilled vinegar to help with mineral buildup but the two products cannot be used together. Thanks! -Melissa, AIRCARE

Wish the tank was big so you don’t have to fill it up so often. Over all the product is worth the price. The driver on the other hand was really bad because they left in the rain on the front steps.

Hello! To humidify a large space heated by radiated heat, we would recommend our Valiant model, which has two fans, and you would maybe go with a smaller unit for the upstairs area, preferably one with more than two fan speeds. If you run your ceiling fans for part of the day, it will help spread the humidity around. For further assistance with purchasing our product, email info@essickair.com. Thanks! -Melissa, AIRCARE

do you have to buy water bottles or how to put water in?

Asked by Charlie November 6, 2020

Answers

It comes with a 2.5 gal water bottle that you have to fill. You can pour it into the tray, then refill and install do an approximate total load of 5 gallons. It’s easy to use. You will need to replace the wick at least once per heating season. Also easy to do but a bit pricey.

Does this unit have to be manually restarted after power outage?

What is the highest humidity setting available? I am looking to run it at 70%

Asked by CJ October 2, 2019
5
Answers

Sorry, I misunderstood your question earlier. The unit does not have a setting on it for measuring humidity so I purchased a device that measures that. My 3,800 square foot house is usually between 30-40 percent humidity in the winter ... no higher. Note that my humidifier runs 24/7. If you only have a room or much smaller house it should get to a much higher humidity level. Good luck.

I’ve only had this a couple of months, pulled it away from the wall and there was all sorts of white debri behind it and on the filter! What is this stuff? I used the bacteria product until I ran out. We do have soft water, suggestions? I would hate to have to replace the filter every 2 months.
by Catmom
Response from EssickAirProductsJan 5, 2019
Hi, Catmom. The white is mineral build up from the softened water. If you have an excessive amount of mineral build up in the wick due to your water, you can try placing some white distilled vinegar in your water – this will help break down some of those minerals. One teaspoon of vinegar per gallon of water is the recommended application. Feel free to call us at 800-547-3888 if you’d like more information on caring for your wick or to see if your wick is still covered under warranty. Our office hours are 7:00 am – 5:00 pm CST, Monday through Friday. Thanks! -Natalie, Essick Air Products

I liked everything about this humidifier. I would give it 5 stars but I don't like the opaque water bottle, I would like to be able to see the water level when I'm filling it.

Economical solution to a dry house
In lieu of installing a whole house humidifier, this would be a good alternative. Setup is very easy. Only a few simple parts to piece together. No tools required. The filter drops into the basin, attach the float, drop in the water tank and cap it off with the control unit. Has casters for easy movement It is a relatively simple concept. The filter absorbs water, then a fan draws air through it dispensing humid air into the room. The fan motor uses hardly any energy and is decently quiet on speed 1. Speeds 2 to 4 are on the louder side, but not the sound from the motor, rather the air movement. Setting the humidity level is easy with a simple dial, as well as the fan speed desired. The water tank has a one way valve so once you cap it on you can turn it over without anything spilling out. Once placed in the basin the plunger is opened and water is dispersed into the filter. The humidistat is on the cord behind the unit and provides a real time humidity reading which is displayed on the top of the unit. The fan turns on when the humidity is low and turns off when the humidity setting is achieved. Unit will not run when empty and display "F" to say fill. You can run through 12 gallons a day if you have very dry air and a high humidity setting. The 5.4 gallon tank is ample for most applications. I keep my setting at 60% and I fill the tank about every 3 days. Make sure to stay up on the bacteriostat so that you do not get moldy smelling air. They recommend replacing the filter once a year. So far the air quality in the house has been great and no more dry skin or static electricity

Great Humidifier
This Aircare Humidifier is all it's advertised to be. LED settings for Humidity and Fan Speeds and automatic shut off when desired Humidity is reached, which is good for a smaller than 3700 Square house. Fairly easy to get set up, I had to refer to the manual a few times. I've only had my Furnace on for a couple of weeks. So far I can really tell a difference. The copper tone console is very attractive.

Good. Works well, comparable to specs. Would be excellent if fan could be adjusted to a much lower speed. Half the lowest speed would be much quieter, and still do the job with a longer duty.
