When I did my initial research, it was obvious that evaporative humidifiers are the way to go for safer air quality and also because it's impossible for them to over-saturate the air with humidity. However, they are bigger, louder, and you have to change the filters.
I decided to give ultrasonic a chance first, and I just loved this one so much! It doesn't look *medicinal," it's quiet (other than a brook/water sound), and it's super easy to use and clean. Call me weird, but I even enjoyed the task of filling it up every day! Ha! It was also very easy to remove the water tight cap.
EFFECTIVE? Definitely! It raised my humidity maybe 10-15% taking it from ~35 to ~50 (and not I've learned 50% is probably "too much" humidity). I had to run it on high to get the levels up and then run it as speeds of 2 or 3 to maintain it.
WHITE DUST. Use distilled water. These types of machines will turn minerals in water into *white dust* which will coat your furniture. I used reverse osmosis water, so I was not expected to see this dusting. My water must have more minerals than I realized, as within a week of using the machine, suddenly, I noticed a light white coating all over my furniture. The day before, I had run the machine on high, and on speed 3 that evening.
I have read that this white dust can be harmful to breathe. I don't want to take chances with it. I could get a ZERO water filter, but I decided to try an evaporative humidifier instead.
CLEANING. It's super easy. And with these units, SUPER important, as everything in the water tank turns into tiny particles and goes out into your air. Just move the entire unit to a bathroom or kitchen counter. Measure out 2 cups of distilled vinegar, and let it soak in the unit for 20 minutes (instructions included). THOROUGHLY rinse--especially before using bleach, as the two mixed together are TOXIC. I recommend micro fiber towels for drying the unit. Instead of using bleach, my plan was to use Seventh Generation Disinfectant Spray.
LEAKS. I had a clear, thin cutting board (from VitaMix) under mine, and I'm glad I did, as the first day I used it, there was some water build up around the machine. However, since I've since learned humidifiers can leak *all* of their content, a bucket might not be a bad idea! This cute one is wide and shallow->Behrens C17GS 4-1/4-Gallon Galvanized Steel Pail. I'll be using it for my new Honeywall Humidifier that's coming: Honeywell Top Fill Digital Humidistat Tower Humidifier, Black
CONDENSATION. If you have the speed up on 3 or 4, I'd have a fan on low. This worked for me in keeping the condensation build up from happening around the machine. You'll also want a hygrometer of course to keep track of the humidity levels. Anything above 60% can cause problems. Dr. Mercola has an article recommending not going over 45% in order to reduce the risk of mold and fungus build up.
Overall, unless you're using distilled water and are diligently cleaning the unit every week, I recommend an evaporative humidifier instead.
I hope this helps! Figuring out humidifiers can be a little overwhelming when you're new to it!
Update in a week since I found it "broken": the product started working again all of a sudden since I waited a day or two to try it again. I didn't clean it or do anything to it. It just start working properly again on its own. Gave it a two star instead of one because of it.
Comment on the product itself: It has a really sleek design and I love the design and the ease to use. Only if it keeps working reliably and continuously.
Have used multiple humidifiers previously. and this has the shortest lifespan. Have contacted honeywell and waiting for response.
Mist comes out quietly.
The machine works almost round the clock since I purchased it for a year now. Had to do a thorough cleaning just recently with that "black" mold but with a little rubbing and a dash of bleach, it's up and running again.
