Product Overview

This light oak traditional credenza style humidifier is sure to compliment any decor. 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.

Great product as it relieves dry air, static, dry skin, etc. I like the adjustable humidity levels and fan. It was easy to put together, just a little tricky putting one screw in a tight place, but had not problem. Only took a half an hour to get it together and running.

The machine works good, but the cover that came with the machine doesn't fit correctly. We did not return the product because we needed and we were not sure how to return it. If we could just bring it to the store or if we had to send it back.

We have had several humidifiers in the past. We found this one to be one of the best. Large capacity is good except that he water canisters are heavy and hard to handle when full. Filling the canisters is difficult because you need a hose to fill them. (Hose supplied). The fill hole is small and makes adding bacteria state difficult without a small funnel. We have been using this unit for about 2 weeks. We have a small one floor house and it works well. It is worth the few minor problems mentioned.
