Cool air was a lot cooler than we expected,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Honeywell hcm540 Cool Mist Humidifier 4 gal
We bought this humidifier because our pediatrician recommended that our baby should sleep next to it due to a dry nose. I had high hopes for this humidifier but we have been disappointed.
There are two major problems. The first one is that the fan is very noisy at the High and Medium levels. It is acceptable at the Low setting, but it then takes a long time to humidify the room.
The second problem is that once the air was humid enough the room temperature dropped significantly. We use it at night, and it is very obvious that all surfaces -- beds, sheets, etc. -- were much colder than what they normally are without the humidifier. We had to put a lot of extra blankets on out baby, and after all of this his nose did not improve at all.
We are returning this device and looking for a different one.
