Where does the unit blow out it's air? Out the top or the rear?

Asked by: Ggggggggggggg
G, The air will come mostly through the vents at the top. There will of course be some air that will come through the grates in the back, but that is not the main exit for the air to travel.

does this e.h. produce white dust

does this e.h. produce white dust
Asked by: bill
Bill, our evaporative wicking humidifiers do not produce white dusk; however, the ultrasonic models will create white dust if a demineralization cartridge is not used and properly maintained. If you would like more information about this unit, please visit our website, essickair.com. Thank you.

5.6 Gal. Evaporative Humidifier for 3,600 sq. ft. is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have owned 4 of these humidifiers. They are simple to set up and the individual tanks are just... I have owned 4 of these humidifiers. They are simple to set up and the individual tanks are just the right size and give a full day's run before needing to be refilled. I would give a 5-star review except for the fact that the one I recently purchased didn't work properly (the control float would not trigger the fan unit). When I contacted the manufacturer, as directed in the packing materials, I was given the run around like I didn't know what really was wrong. I eventually got fed up and returned the unit to Home Depot. Fortunately, Home Depot has a great return policy and I had no problem getting a refund. I immediately bought another. This one arrived in perfect working order. I recommended this unit to my son, but he said his research had yielded mixed reviews. So quality control is a problem with the manufacturer. Be advised, but realize that Home Depot has a great return policy.

We purchased this last fall after our first one (same one which we liked) finally bit the dust. When we set it up and turned it on it was sooooo noisy! Our older one was quiet compared to this one. We are buying another one for this winter. Won't use this one again.

The body is soft plastic, and the first one arrived damaged. Had to take it to the store for return and have a new one shipped. The unit must be exactly level to a bit downhill left to right for the second bottle to empty, there is almost no tolerance for a non level floor. The humidistat is fooled by the output of the unit and it cycles constantly instead of bringing the humidity up to the level requested. The fan speeds go from 1 (fast enought) to 2 (loud and really fast) up to 6 (jet turbine). It needs more 'lower' speeds and less really fast ones. The bottles need either their hose to fill (easy to break/lose) or faucets with hose extensions and you need to hold the bottle upright on its narrow end to fill it, requiring you to remove/reseat the valve every time you re-fill it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Essick/Air Care humidifier Got this unit after receiving an Essick unit that was missing parts so I returned it. Out of the box the head unit was not functioning properly and we had to wait for a replacement. Humidistat reading is not very accurate so the unit can cycle on and off frequently. When running does a good job of putting humidity into the air but could have been engineered better and documented better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great workhorse This little work horse has solved our problem of not enough humidity in our workstation. Our printers need a 50% humidity level to function properly. We had to bump up from 20% and with this humidifier it not only did that but also cleans the air. Easy to reload tanks of water and clean the filter. Quite on low settings, but also has the power if needed. Light weight and on wheels
