Product Overview

The Vornado Vortex Evaporative Humidifier is the only technology that combines the proven reliability of evaporative humidification with Vornado's signature Whole Room Circulation, resulting in a uniquely effective means to create a comfortable living space. Vornado's deep pitch blade circulator pulls large volumes of harsh, dry air through the unit and then pushes the moistened air further out into the room, providing complete and even humidification. It also recovers and circulates heat off of the ceiling for even room temperature. Delivers automatic humidity control with built-in electronic humidistat. Easy-to-use push button panel allows you to choose your desired humidity level and fan speed. Large 1.5-Gal. capacity makes for less refills.

Questions & Answers


Have you ever run the unit dry? Given that it doesn't seem to have an automatic shutoff, if you d...

Asked by Ron November 8, 2019

Yes, I think it just pulls water from the filter. I wouldn't do this often.

Approximately how long do you find the filters useful before needing to be replaced?

Asked by Ron November 8, 2019

I change the filters at the beginning of the heating season. The humidifier runs pretty continuously all winter. May be better if I changed them more often,especially because I don't use filtered water

The room I use is small - medium. With desired humidity set at 50 percent and fan speed set at low, I refill water every other day .

No More Nose Bleeds
I have allergies all year due to the year round pollen and mold in central Texas. So I bought a high end air purifier for a large room. The problem is (even when the outside humidity is above 50%) the air purifier dries out the inside air to the point that I get a nose bleed from the dry air. It's even worst in the winter. I bought this humidifier to compensate for the air purifier eating up all the moisture. I also bought this so I can set it to 45% and not have to worry about if I'm making it to humid inside. So far no nose bleeds and no more dry itchy skin.

Great product!
Living in the high desert of New Mexico a humidifier is a necessity. We have tried a number of different models and brands over the years and are extremely pleased with the performance of this product. A plus is that it is made in Kansas.

The humidifier works well, but the vapor from the machines smells. I ran the machine several times. I hoped the repeated use would remove whatever was causing the odor. The room smells like burning plastic. This humidifier cannot be used in an area where people are present.

Life Saver!
Bought the first one during the great 2020 smoke out - to explain - live in Western Nevada where the California fires made life and work outside impossible without industrial grade respirator for over 8 weeks. The smoke INSIDE the house was almost as unbearable but with ALL air filters sold out in one day across the entire region I was jammed. BUT - water filter type humidifiers also filter the air passing through. I purchased one of these models and on HIGH it cleared the air in my house in about 6 hours. I have run it 24/7 since this last summer and it is going strong. Recent purchase was of a second unit and a change of filters. When California burns this coming season I am ready. As West Nevada is desert and near-desert the humidifier function is very helpful and no one has had night-time issues with the furnace or wood stove drying out the air this winter. I recommend this product as a humidifier AND auxiliary air filter for cleaner air. Also - given that the product is a small version of a roof-top water based cooling system (swamp cooler) it doubles as a cooling unit in the summer given the evaporative process utilized. By the way, it is very quiet on LOW and operates so sufficiently that LOW is where I keep the speed setting. Note - The water tank on this unit is easy to fill and does not leak while carrying it to and from the unit. The water tank design is the best I have seen in over 50 years of using water based filter systems. Again - this is my second unit - not sure how to give a better recommendation.

This works great! I can set it for the humidity level I want, quiet a little louder on higher settings. Perfect for my home.
Great humidifier!
I’ve used a variety of humidifiers over the years. I prefer evaporative over ultrasonic. The Evap 3 has a humidistat, variable speed fan, easy to clean, customizable settings, is quiet on low speed, and an easy to fill tank. The tank stands to fill! I clean the entire thing once a week and replace the wicks as needed. If using in a bedroom you may need to cover the blue led indicator lights. I use mine in the living room, so the lights aren’t an issue. (Owned 4+ years)
