          Made of cheap plastic and falls apart easily.
          This product is made of very cheap plastic and falls apart easily. It was even broken in the box when it was delivered. The company shipped us another one, which cracked soon after arrival. The wheels come off and the frame just cracks. I took very good care of it but it was so cheaply made that there was nothing that could be done about it. I ended up throwing it away. (I even hate the fact that it wound up in a landfill.) Save your money and buy something else.

            Missing Parts x2
            I’ve now had this item overnighted twice from Home Depot only to not have the instruction manual, casters, and caps for the water bottles, making it unusable. The only thing included in both boxes was the float. This is extremely frustrating especially when you have the flu in an extremely dry house. Both boxes appeared unopened so I don’t think someone removed the missing parts. Don’t know if it’s even worth talking to customer service again as it seems to be a manufacturer packing issue.

            Hello, Hrob7! We assure you that your new humidifier does include all of the components. Please look down inside the unit, in the center of your wicks, and there you will find a bag containing these parts. If you have any other questions regarding our product, please email us at info@essickair.com. -Melissa, AIRCARE

              Works great, no major issues
              I bought this as a first time user of a humidifier, and it does a flawless job at keeping the house at 40 percent humidity. The float doesn't shut the unit down when low on water (float issue), but I don't care (I would rather have them dry out, then keep them wet soaked) Bottles are easy to pull out, refill, and install. Not meant for a 200lb gorilla beating on it (it's an appliance, not a bean bag!!) I keep it at 40 percent with auto fan, and it stays quiet, fill up every 24hr period.

                After one month, the right side bottle has sprung a leak. Not acceptable!

                  Broke in 24 hours
                  Purchased this 2 days ago. It is all plastic. After setting it up, and turning it on, it ran fine, although loud. In less than 24 hours, it started making a horrible noise. I turned it off and found the fan had broke. Plastic bits all over the place.

                    Notice the date of the great reviews.
                    I bought this on Nov 16, 2019. It died exactly one year later. I have not been able to get a hold of the company via email or phone. First the left fan broke, then the controller, then the water container. It's not worth the time and effort required to use it. Do not buy this

                      Easy set up and like the way you fill up the two bottles with water and they slowly release water for the unit. The house is very dry and finding I need to refill the bottles about 3 times a day, but there is no leaking when I walk them from sink to unit. Have had it a week....it has upped the humidity a few percentages and house feels more comfortable. wish I had bought it earlier in the winter. The furnace humidifier has issues and rusting out my sheet metal so do not use it anymore. On this unit I can easily move it this summer out of the way.

                      The humidifier is easy to operate. You fill two large and relatively flat plastic bottles that then get inserted in the front of the humidifier. The water gets released from the bottle as needed to keep water in the bottom pan in order to wet the 4 paper wicks. The 2 fans then blow air through the wicks and out the top of the humidifier. The fans have three settings, and I use the quietest. Humidifier runs a lot at night in winter. I have had the humidifier for about 2 weeks and find the home is more comfortable with it. I expect the four wicks to last for the entire winter, after which I will throw out the wicks, clean the humidifier, store it, and add 4 new wicks next winter. You do need a place to store the humidifier in the off season that is not a hot garage or attic.
