Is this unit energy efficient? If not, will it be a drain on my electric bill?
Asked by: Concerned
It is 1.1 amp at full power (there are 9 speeds)which is like a medium size fan on full power. Install it away from heat sources (radiators, wood stoves etc) for best results. When Im running the wood stove its on 24 hrs a day in a neighboring room and adds 8-10 dollars a month I would estimate (its usually on a setting between 2-5 mostly) I try to keep it around 40% humidity, It does the whole first floor of the house and it shuts down when 40% reached and comes on again below 35. Im putting 3 gallons of water in it about every 36 hours, every 24 hrs in cold weather. hope this helps and have a great day

I'm writing to give a HUGE thank you to Christina from Essick Air Products! She is so helpful! Also want to thank a helpful customer that answered one of my questions on this site.. SKP. If you are adding the vinegar about every other day, sometimes the CF notice still shows. If this happens, do check your filter, but if you turn it over and then unplug the unit and plug it back in, you may get another few weeks out of it successfully. The vinegar in the water will save you a ton of money and keep this humidifier running smoothly for months. We add a tablespoon every other day, when we fill it. When it's really cold outside, we only have to set the fan on low (quietest setting), and fill the unit once in the morning and once before bedtime. We bought a inexpensive plastic pitcher and it normally only takes on pitcher. Our home is only 1250/ sq ft. All in all, this is THE best humidifier we've ever had :)

The humidifier is keeping the humidity higher than 50% all the time and during most days I set the fan only on level 2. I only set the fan higher if I let the water run low. At night I set the humidity to 50% and the speed to 1. In the day time I have been setting the level to 65%. Our house is over 1000 square feet so it is doing a great job, better than larger units I have had in the past.

I bought this product last year and would not recommend it for 2400 sq ft. I have 2500 sq feet and it struggled to keep humidity at 22 % with a 71 deg f., room temperature, on the 9th fan speed (F9). And on F9 speed it is noisy and annoying. It has been reliable, but in my opinion (30 years HVAC experience) it is capable of only 1200 to 1300 square feet. It uses a process called evaporative cooling to release moisture into the air via a wetted paper media pad. What is evaporative cooling? Evaporative cooling systems function similarly to dry cooling systems, but with the incorporation of a cooling pad (wetted media pad). Drawing air through the pad depresses the dry bulb of the incoming air. The dry bulb air temp allows evaporation of water thus evaporating moisture from the pad cooling and humidifying the air passing through it. As a side affect it does cool some of the air. You would be much better off with a steam humidifier. On very cold winter days when the furnace runs longer more frequent cycles it simply cannot keep up with the air volume being circulated.

My experience with prior humidifiers shows your product to be of superior design and operation. The water fill process could be designed somewhat better to prevent spillage. The controls and overall performance of this product rates a 9 out of a possible 10. I particular like vertical orientation of the design and the unique "tile" on the top of the machine allowing for placement of a decorative item.

The little funnel extension isn't even close to controlling a 3 gal container. I would recommend putting the funnel door in the corner of the unit so it would SWING out rather than swing down, pivoting near the corner, so a big opening is easily attained without much change of the design. Basically, two sides of the funnel is the outside corner of the unit which pivots into the machine to reveal the open part of it.
