Benefits of Humidication
Evaporative humidifiers are a great solution for adding much needed humidity to dry indoor air. By raising indoor relative humidity levels to 43% or above, 86% of airborne flu virus particles are rendered powerless. Maintaining proper humidity levels also helps treat allergy symptoms by soothing dryness, itchiness, and irritation in the nose, nasal passages, sinuses, mouth, throat, and eyes. Many people think pet hair is the cause of allergies, but in reality, the cause of allergens from pets is actually from their dander. Adding moisture to the air reduces pet dander and other airborne allergens. Properly humidified environments can decrease or eliminate static electricity, reducing the chance of damage to sensitive electronic equipment like laptops, desktop computers, tablets, TV’s, stereo systems, etc. Evaporative Humidification not only produces comfortable/healthy air, it is also an extremely effective way to save money on energy cost. Adding humidity to the air allows you to remain comfortable at lower thermostat settings. "The rule of thumb is that you can save about 3% on your heating bill for every degree that you set back your thermostat," says Bill Prindle, deputy director for the non-profit American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. This means evaporative humidification could save you up to 10% on your energy bill.

This functional little humidifier makes maintaining proper humidity levels easier than ever. Our humidifiers work by adding invisible moisture to your environment by moving dry air through a saturated wick. Maintaining proper humidity levels between 30-50% in your home/office/workplace has been scientifically proven to help prevent the flu and allergies. Proper humidity hydrates your skin, alleviates dry eyes, scratchy throats and can reduce snoring. With a doctor's approval increased humidity can reduce asthma and allergy symptoms. It also protects fine furniture, musical instruments, collectibles and wood floors. Proper humidity makes you feel warmer allowing you to lower your thermostat setting which will save money. Use of a ceiling fan helps distribute moisture output.

This has been one of the best investments I have ever made! For your health...for your family's health...Get one!
I live in a 600 SQ foot one bedroom apartment in NYC with dry forced air heat that hovers at 16% humidity on my reader all winter, no matter how low I keep the heat. I also have lots of allergies and get repeated sinus infections all winter which I unsuccessfully try to avoid by using my neti pot and nasal cortisol spray. I know that humidity is a major issue as my sinus issues miraculously disappeared two days after I arrived in Puerto Rico for a trip earlier this month, only to come back as soon as I returned home.
The humidifier problem:
I've gone through a variety of consumer humidifiers the past few years in the $30 to $100 range, both warm and cool mist, and none of them raise the humidity in my apartment much. I can get it up to $19% (25% is said to be the minimum safe humidity) for a few minutes, but even with the units running in the same room, it shifts back down to 16% on and off.
I've had more success boiling a big pot of water all day, which raised the humidity to 25-30%, but I can't do this at night when it's most crucial and who wants to waste that much gas?
Living in a small space with no storage, I was reluctant to get a larger unit. Plus humidifiers are damp, wet electronics and hardly last long and I've been trolling reviews the past few winters only to find a lot of faulty models. But this year I was tired of waking up with painful, stuffed sinuses every morning that would eventually lead to the need for antibiotics and the problem had increased to dry scalp and skin, so I knew I had to do something about it. It then occurred to me to search for "industrial humidifier" on amazon and I found this model!
It's a simple machine, easy to fill and the filters are cheap. It is really meant for a whole home and isn't as pretty as some of the room humidifiers out there, but it's a fairly small unit (doesn't take up much more cubic space than my last Holmes room humidifier) and I knew I needed something strong. Plus, the price is right for $75 which is much less than some of the fancier room humidifiers, which doing a much better job!
The unit brought my whole apartment to 35-40% humidity within two hours and automatically turned the fan off at this point. It periodically turns back on to make adjustments and shuts down when there's no water left, which is a great feature that none of my past humidifiers had. The tank is really easy to fill with little mess and once the apartment's humidity is brought up, it only needs to be refilled once a day. I'm using a mold inhibitor additive with hopes the filter lasts longer, but this (for some reason) makes me sneeze a lot each time it's added so I'm searching for a better option. The fan makes some noise on high, but there are three settings and I've always liked a little white noise at night. My whole apartment is humidified when I run it in the bedroom so I could technically run it outside of the room with the door open if the noise bothered me.
I have yet to see how running the unity affects my electric bills and runs long term, but overall I am very happy so far!
Second winter and still very happy. I understand that some folks are unhappy bc it says it humidifies a whole home. Works great in my one bedroom apartment and the price is amazing compared to other models for that purpose. I assume it would only humidify a whole home if you have proper ventilation to disperse the humidity.
-use the bacteria inhibited additive they sell on Amazon. It's worth it because your filter will get 5x the life
-clean it every 2-4 weeks
- don't let stagnant water sit in it when it's not in use. Obvious but some need a reminder
Overall, it's saved me from having to take antibiotics for two winters due to sinus infections from my dry air heating. Yes, I use it along with regular sinus salt rinses and also don't eat lots of dairy or sugar, but before I had this humidifier I was still having issues despite this. Get it! Don't delay! It's worth it!
