Product Overview

Our innovative pedestal humidifier with stylish surface insert 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.

Questions & Answers

21Questions25Answers

why do the fins on the side face down? shouldn't they face up?

Asked by ionizer February 12, 2021
2
Answers

Hi, Ionizer. To maximize humidity circulation, you would want to put your unit near a cold air return. The fins facing down is so that the humidified air will go into the return duct and circulate through your home. This unit does not create a mist only humidified air so you do not have to worry about water going down to the floor. Thank you, -Natalie Team AIRCARE

I have had mine on carpet for a couple of years now, no ply-board without problems. But DON"T roll it on the carpet, the rollers will snap off easily.

why should'nt this humidifier be placed on carpet?

Asked by HeyYou March 6, 2020
2
Answers

hello, Heyyou! Some carpets are deep, which can cause an issue with leveling. If your only choice for placing your unit is carpet, it will be okay, but please make sure your unit is leveled and be careful with spillage. You don't want your carpet to get wet. Thanks! Melissa, AIRCARE

What is the idea level to set the humidifier ? Why am I getting a blinking F. I have enough water in the unit

Asked by Ann February 5, 2019
5
Answers

When I set up this humidifier, it also gave me the blinking F. I called customer support and they advised me to turn the cover upside down and just bend the little rectangular metal piece as it was not making contact with the top of the float. I did that and everything works perfectly.

How often do you change the filter

Asked by tim January 24, 2019

Answers

That depends on the hardwater in you area and if you use additives like bacteriostat and hard water treatments. Every few months worked for us.

Can unit safely run 24/7

Asked by Al January 17, 2019
3
Answers

Yes, it can run 24/7. In some areas of the country, it may have to in order to get the humidity level up and maintain it. The more you run your heater the dryer your air, the more it runs. If a unit can't run 24/7, what's the point in having it. No unit should require constant attention or maintenance. We all have a life beyond our humidifiers. You can see my frustration with this particular model.

Hi, ford800. Thank you for the question. The only difference between the two are the color. The EP9500 is Nutmeg & the EP9800 is Espresso. -Natalie, Essick Air Products

by SRINI
Response from EssickAirProductsFeb 19, 2021
Hello, Srini! Our humidifiers are made to put a lot of moisture into the air. We would probably get a lot of complaints if they didn’t. With that powerful output comes a little more noise; most of our customers liken it to a box fan. If you find it bothersome, we recommend running your unit at the highest speed during the day, then reducing the fan speed while you are sleeping. If you’d like us to run through some troubleshooting with you, and make sure the sound you’re hearing isn’t a defect, please give us a call at 800-547-3888, 7:00 AM – 5:30 PM CST, Monday through Friday. Thanks. -Melissa, AIRCARE

Replacing an older model. Used in a fireplace room to help maintain humidity. Yes it is louder on the higher settings like so other reviews say, however, it is very effective at putting moisture back into the air over a smaller model.

Works very well at raining humidity in house. The one negative is that the air that it blows out is rather cold and we actually have to keep the heat a little higher to combat that.

I like the fact that this humidifier is easy to clean, easy to fill and maintains the humidity where you set it. It also looks nice and does not take up much space. I like all the variable fan speeds. When the fan is turned up, it is a little loud, but this is not a issue for me as I have it in a room that is not where it is next to me.

The first one received was defective. The fan only worked on the lowest speed. The humidity control did not work and no matter the setting, would climb to 65 so had to adjust manually. The float was not secured with a clip so had to keep checking water level. I called customer service and they were very understanding then sent a replacement within a week and it works fine. It looks like a piece of furniture and is easy to fill with a pail with a pouring end so no need for the attachment. .
