                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Hello, Pattycake! Many of our humidifiers and wick/filter frames are made of one of the most widely used plastics in small appliances: Polystyrene. The process to create polystyrene uses the chemical compound benzene. Benzene is known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm. The state of California requires that consumers be made aware of the presence of this chemical, as well as more than 900 others, under Proposition 65. visit the prop65 site here to learn more. https://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65. -Melissa, AIRCARE

                    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.

                    Was easy to assemble. Seems to work fine but it’s too early to tell whether it makes a difference in my house. Since we received it we’ve had fairly warm weather with higher humidity levels. One thing: it doesn’t indicate when the tanks are empty of water.

                    the cap to one of water containers does not screw on, the motor/fan does not set in the housing right so it is continuously on. Sending it back.

                    This is a replacement for a 25+ year old model. Easy to put together. I like the new feature that allows you to set a humidity level.
