The HoMedics humidifier uses ultrasonic technology for silent, seeable, micro-fine vapor. It works very quietly and delivers a lot of mist for a better humidification of the room. You can choose warm or cool vapor options so you will be comfortable in summer as well as in winter. This product has 2 fan speed settings: low and high. On the high mode, it will humidify the room faster, and on the low mode, it will do its work slower. With this humidifier, it is easier to remove and refill the dual tank while it is running. Their capacity is 1.7-gallon so that the humidifier will work up to 72 hours per one filling.

In such a way, it will run up to 80 hours per filling and save some energy and money. You won’t have much trouble maintaining the tanks. This product has a built-in ON and OFF night light so you can determine easily whether it works or not at the moment. If the bright lights interfere with your sleep, you can switch them off. The humidifier has a special anti-microbial Clean Mist technology, which is smart enough to prevent the growth of mold on the surface of the container. Thanks to such a technology, you won’t need to clean it all the time, which make its maintenance very easy. The air in your home will have no harmful allergens, and you may forget about allergy if you suffer from one. With the help of demineralization cartridges, it will reduce white dust or mineral build up. Most of the time we experience such problems because of the hard water we use to refill the reservoir. You will need to replace the cartridges after 30-40 fillings. The humidifier’s weight is 7.7 pounds.

It is not convenient to adjust this humidifier to the desired humidity level, as it doesn’t have a humidistat or timer. The vapor in this model will flow only in one fixed direction and won’t spread mist evenly throughout the living area. You will need to remove this unit to the place where you need its output. After some time of using this humidifier, you may hear loud bubbling noises because of the fan’s flawed design.

It weighs 5.6 pounds.

The handle is not very comfortable when you carry the humidifier so be careful because you can break or even drop it. It will spill water everywhere and damage your furniture. You also should be more careful when refilling the tank because you can break it easily too. When this unit is in the oscillating mode, it may generate some noise, and for a light sleeper, it can be a problem at night.

The tank handle’s design makes refilling it very inconvenient. After using it for some time, the fan just stops working or making a noise.

You can face a moldy smell problem, which comes out of the base or tank.
