from the manual: "The CF function is reset after plugging the unit back in." So, I think that means, unplug it to change filter, plug back in and the reminder should go off.

It will feel cool right next to it if it is blowing on you. Otherwise, no, it doesn't make your home any colder. It just isn't heated up moisture like water in a pan on the stove, it is room temperature.

The light stays on when it is plugged in and running. That allows it to show the humidity number and also when you open the fill door you can see where the fill line is.

Hello, Harry! This model cannot be hooked up to a water connection. Altering your humidifier will void your warranty, and it can affect the unit's operation. This humidifier can be used in a cigar room. If you have any other questions or concerns about our product, please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-547-3888, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 to 5:30 CST. Thanks! -Melissa, AIRCARE

Just purchased this unit. The fan speed does not seem to change. I hit the fan switch and nothing changes.

Asked by Steve March 14, 2020

Answers

You should definitely be able to tell the difference. At the highest speed it sounds like a plane taking off. Mine has glitches of its own, like messages that aren’t explained in the owners manual, or occasionally it turns itself on when I have turned it off, or it changes to high speed when I only have it set on the lowest speed, but if I unplug the unit & plug it back in, it will usually do fine at least for a few days. Owning this unit all depends on your patience level. Does a de ent job, but lots of gremlins involved.

Can you buy the wick frame?

Performs well, but perhaps not as well as my old one. It’s very easy to see the full line if you bend over and look in through the fill door. It’s very well lit. It performs satisfactorily, but not as well out of the box as my old Essick floor model I was replacing. That’s concerning.

Was easy to set up. However all of the fan settings except the lowest is a bit noisy. However I have it set on 40% humidity with the fan set to low and it cycles on and off indicating the lowest fan setting is all that is necessary. Haven't had it long enough to know if it is reliable however their isn't a lot to go wrong. Bottom line is that it works and works well!

Mr. John, Thank you for taking the time to review on our product and for sharing your experience with us. We appreciate your feedback. We are pleased to hear of your satisfaction with your new humidifier. Although our humidifiers will have a sound variation when going from low to high, it should not be so loud that you cannot bear to be in the same room with it. If this is the case, please contact our office at 1(800)547-3888. Our Customer Service Representatives will be able to assist you. Office hours are from 7:00 AM – 5:30 PM CST Monday through Friday and on Saturday from 7:30 AM to -12:30 PM CST. - Thank You Christina Essick Air Products

We had this same humidifier for many years and were very happy with it. This one, however, we have had for just over a month and already the "change filter" light is on. Our previous one, the same brand, the filter lasted all season.

Response from EssickAirProductsMay 4, 2021
Hello! The CF code means you should check your wick filter. If your wick is still clean and absorbing the water, you do not have to replace it with a new one. When the code activates, check your filter to ensure that it is clean, fully saturated, and then unplug your humidifier for five minutes or longer to deactivate the code. Thanks! -Melissa, AIRCARE

This humidifier is best on market. I had one older model for 8-9 years. Totally meets our needs. It tells when water need to be filled and filter exchange. Filter less long time and water needs to be filled probably once or twice a week. Depending on air dryness. Humidity may be present on your needs.

Response from EssickAirProductsApr 12, 2021
Hello, Maryann! We are glad you took the time to leave this review, even if we didn’t get all of the stars. Local humidity levels in your area and the physical location of the humidifier can affect coverage. We recommend positioning your humidifier in the most centrally located room of your house (typically your living room). Having your humidifier in the middle of your home helps the humidity spread more easily and evenly. Our square footage estimates are based on homes with tight construction. Older homes, or those with poor insulation or cracks, may have a larger coverage area. If you’d like more help with this, our call center agents are available 7:00 AM – 5:30 PM CST, Monday through Friday. We are happy to help you. Thanks. -Melissa, AIRCARE
