As cold temperatures set in, humidity levels drop, cold air is unable to hold as much moisture as warm air. Because of this, when we heat our home the relative humidity levels can drop to as low as 10%. This is drier than the Sahara Desert, and can lead to drier skin, as well as nose and throat discomfort. It can also cause static electricity, and plants and furniture to dry out. Some people experience discomfort when humidity levels are lower than 25%. A comfortable humidity level should be between 40-60%.
Humidity Reduces the Survival of Flu and Viruses on Surfaces and In the Air
In the fight against the flu, your home is a major battleground. Millions of flu particles can linger in the air and on surfaces
we touch day in and day out. Recent studies suggest that humidifiers may play an important role in reducing the survival of the flu virus. Studies have shown that keeping indoor air at an RH level of 40-60% reduces the survival of flu viruses on surfaces and in the air.*
*A study by Environmental Health and Engineering (Environmental Health 2010, 9:55) shows that keeping air at relative humidity levels between 40-60% can reduce survival of flu viruses on surfaces and in the air. Humidifiers can help achieve and maintain this humidity level.
The Honeywell MistMate Cool Mist Humidifier is also available in white, red and blue.

So, several lessons learned. The first is that the Honeywell does do an effective job raising the humidity level quickly in this size room. The next lesson is that it does have the ability to raise the humidity above a comfortable level depending on room size, and with door closed. So, if you buy it you will need to experiment with your own room. Also, be aware that you might want to reduce the dial setting at night so that the room humidity does not climb too high while you are sleeping. From what I have read, keeping the humidity around 50% is good. So run it on high to get to ideal humidity and then dial it back. Also keep in mind that having too high a humidity could cause mold growth.
The unit is very quiet with a slight hum and occasional bubbling sound. It is a nice size and shape. The unit will automatically shut off when out of water, which is nice. The .5 gallon reservoir is good size for filling and carrying. I like that the unit does not require a filter. Filters can get expensive.
One other tip: if you run on your desk, make sure the mist points away from the desk, otherwise the moisture will begin to soak into papers on your desk.
The most important tip is to use the ceiling fan (but not blowing down, of course).
I let the unit sit for 1.5 days before trying this unit again. It failed to make steam after fiddling with it for about 2 hours upon arrival. I took the top off and pushed on the round recess in the bottom of the tank. It didn't seem to move, but when I put the top back on and turned it on, steam was produced. I've tested it multiple times today and it seems to be working reliably now. I've probably used it about 3 or 4 hours and I think the water will last a week at this rate. I have another brand that will produce enough vapor to fog up a small bathroom. This one doesn't produce near that amount, but I think it makes plenty for most purposes on high.
For the price I paid, this is cheap enough to risk running scented oils in the unit. It likely will cause the machine to fail early, but I've used my other machine for about 2 years with essential oils. I wont be testing this for that purpose.
For what it's worth, I am using this at work as an impromptu air cooler. I have it running in front of a fan to help keep me cool in the summer when my office gets hot.
These must really have quality control issues. I saw many negative reviews but I usually have good luck. I filled this up with filtered water, turned it on high and the light illuminates. That's all - no vapor. I took the tank off and I saw a small bit of vapor over the pooled water underneath. Thus far no success getting more than the indicator light. I'm not a big fan of it's design. The clear assembly sits on top of the white part. You flip the clear part over and it has a removable cap underneath. Once you fill this part, you flip it over and place back on the white part and it has a little stopper on a spring that gets lifted to allow water to flow into the white base. The base holds quite a bit of water and that is just pooling water so if you move this, you can't tilt it or it'll pour out. I'll take a second try to get it to work but I think this is going back soon.
