It is on casters, so is easy to move. It has automatic settings so you can set the room for 25% and up.
The wicks are not that expensive and can be purchased from many suppliers and come folded up so you
have to unfold them and form a circle to fit in the obvious plastic standards that form a circle.
The lower tank and side tank hold around 4 gallons of water, and will put out 12 gallons in a 24 hour period
if set on high which I have never had to do and set it on the lowest (25%) setting. Argo, the lower the setting,
the less you have to refill the side tank.
A word of advice on all humidifiers:
Add vinegar to the mix every other or every third time to cut down on the lime build up. I do this with all my humidifiers and my large whole house evaporative cooler which is basically the same thing. This way I only have to
replace wicks/pads once a year; the swamp cooler pads in summer, and the wicks in winter.
I have tried the no mold additives, and to tell you the truth, nothing works better than good old white vinegar, just like Mom used to say.
Oh yea, one more thing, Go to the Sears web sight to buy the unit, you will save at least $20.00 on the purchase, even with tax.
Aside from this major problem, the unit is now functioning well. It has increased the humidity from 24% to 37% in a 1,800 sq. ft. home. I will update this review further down the line.
Update: The unit works fine but it will go through filters about every month, at least here in the desert. Hard water will make them stiff as a board so when "CF", change filter appears on the readout, do it right away as humidifier performance will drop quickly . I run mine at full capacity & fan, you will probably get longer life on the filter if you keep the fan lower and the humidity output lower. They have these at Sears for $12, they seem to have different manufactures but they are all the same. Any one will do.
We add the anti-bacteria at each fill just to keep the system clean. Change the filter twice in a year. Run it both winter and summer. That's right, summer too.
Ask a librarian what the humidity level is in a library. Notice how cool and comfortable the whole library is... yep... it makes a difference for the books and the people! You just set the level of humidity you want and the system automatically maintains it. We run it all day and all night. It is easy to live with.
I would not have believed the unit would be able to even out the humidity in the whole house. There was no way to retrofit a humidifier into our furnace/AC system and when we get an upgrade... I think we will stay with the Kenmore unit. The cost of adding the plumbing to the system doesn't make dollar sense when we know this works so well.
Its coming up on winter... this could make a difference.

I see reviewers knock this one because of the need to change filters. If you don't want to be bothered with filters definitely avoid evaporative coolers like this one. Read morePublished 8 months ago by rpm
Great unit, delivers the right humidity and the filter has great life.Published 17 months ago by Herbert E Dwyer
It seems to work as advertised, however it's amazing how cheap these things are. Basically it's just a plastic tub of water that a filter sits in, with a variable speed fan. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Amazon Reviewer
