I decided to purchase this for my bedroom just to run at night. My bedroom is probably 20' by 30', not very high ceilings, and even with this humidifier on high all night, I don't notice a difference. Plus, it is very loud on the high setting, almost at loud as an air conditioner. I also have a hard time believing that the tank is really 2 gallons. I haven't measured, but it barely seems 1 gallon in size.
It is advertised that it will last 3 full nights per refill, but that is on the low setting, and only if you sleep 6-7 hours a night. I'm sure it may work for a smaller room, probably a good buy for a kid's room, but not for any rooms that are even medium in size. Overall, go for a bigger and quieter humidifier, even if you have to pay a little extra cash.
The low setting really isn't that loud, and the high setting is a great 'white noise' maker for kiddos (or hubbies that are used to the sound of a fan during summer months ;p).
And while this may not be the greatest humidifier ever, it is kind of a 'get what you pay for' scnerio.
Ie for us, at least, it was money well spent.
I tried shimming up one end of the unit hoping that it might supply more water to the pad, but that did not help. Maybe the pad they supply is just too robust or is over-treated so that it will not soak up enough water, I don't know. But, I do know that this unit does not do much of anything but make noise. Even on low it is a louder than it ought to be. I should add that is is in a small bedroom maybe 12 x 10.
I decided to return this and purchase a Vicks model V3100 1.0 Gallon Cool Mist Humidifier. Now that model works as you would expect a small room humidifier to work, and on low it just whispers. The Vicks is a much better choice for a small room.
So it might actually be good for a small bedroom, because it is a nice white noise machine on the low setting, and since it's just letting the water evaporate, you won't get that thing with regular humidifiers where the walls are soaked in perspiration in the winter.
Buuuuut yeah, two stars because you can just buy a fan and set out a bowl of water in front of it. And it would be easier to clean, and you wouldn't need to buy replacement filters.
