Rated 1 out of 5 by Mapes This did nothing!
I used this humidifier for a couple of weeks with no changes in the air at all - this will be going back!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer I'm getting another one!
I've had this humidifier for about a month, and so far I love it. I have not had the problem that a few other users have had. Mine cycles on and off just the right amount. I notice that it will sometimes cycle on and off several times in an hour if the heater is running. And it is very important to put it out of the direct flow of the vents (which it says in the instructions).
It is so easy to fill. I order two different humidifiers from QVC. I took this one out, read the instructions, took the top off, filled it with water, wicks in, top on, plugged it in, and it was ready. I read the other set of instructions several times. It involved filling tanks and closing nozzles (that you hope won't leak later) and flipping them back into the base. I decided it was not worth the hassle (because it held about half of what this one holds and they were similar in overall size). I sent it back unused, and I plan to order another one of these.
It has run out of water and it did automatically turn off. All the lights on the front panel turned off, so I knew when I walked by to fill it again. I also haven't noticed any white films or dust with this one. We noticied a difference it our humidity very quickly. We keep ours on level 3 of 4.
I wish QVC sold the replacement wicks, but they are available from the manufacturer. Their website for ordering additional wicks and other accessories is listed in the instructions.

I bought two for my home and when i tried to adjust the humidity, it didnt work. Also they are big and clumsy. I sent them back.
Rated 1 out of 5 by rcpratt3 Can't find filters anywhere!
I purchaseed 2 of these, one for upstairs & one for downstairs. I have been running them for a few months. I do not notice a difference in the moisture levels in my house like I do with previous humidifiers that I've owned. It really does not seem like it is working well. It constantly runs & never shuts off even when it runs out of water. Now they seem rather loud. The worst part is nobody carries the replacement filters! I've tried everywhere - the chain department stores, home improvement stores, etc.
Rated 1 out of 5 by KarenO Not good for me
I purchased this humidifier based on the excellent reviews. I found assembly (putting in the wicks) super easy, and I filled the container and hooked it up. No matter how I set it, it repeatedly cycled every 4 seconds. I have a dehumidifier for the summer, and it runs for hours, then off for quite a while, then on for hours again. Over 24 hours it might come on 8 times. But this humidifier came on 8 times in about a half minute, and that repeated over and over. After a couple of hours of that, I remembered how much extra electricity is used when something is first turned on and realized that I probably can't afford to have it coming on many times every minute. So I turned it off and plugged my old steam humidifiers back in, and right away I felt much relief from the dry air. I don't know if it was just this one unit, or if this is how it's supposed to work, but it just is not good for me, so it's going back.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Maggie Mouse WOW!
Received this humidifier yesterday and have to say it has made the biggest difference in the comfort of our home. Placed it in the den, following the EASY directions for setup; adjusted control to 01 setting and walked away. This morning, the house was comfortably warm; none of us had breathing issues, which is often the case with winter weather and a closed environment. The unit is very quiet and generates enough moisture to reach every room on the ground floor, approximately 1,100 square feet.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spike831 Very Good Humdifier!
What can I say? This Humidifier really works and does everything it states. I particularly like the fact that I don't get any of the dust on my furniture. That's the main reason I got it. Thank you Essick and QVC!
Rated 5 out of 5 by kbUSA JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!!!
Have bought many others. Thrown most away. Didn't like the ones that made white dust. If that dust was on the furniture, wasn't it in your lungs too? Most smaller units claimed that they lasted 72 hours on low but really only lasted 12 hours. Wanted one that I could leave on during the day or when away for a few days for my dogs. 3 gallon size was perfect for my large living room, dinning room, kitchen combo with vaulted ceiling.
This was perfect size for what I wanted. Not too big or too small. Pretty silent on fan speed 1 & 2. 3 ok. 4 kinda loud but not too bad and doubt if I would use it on speed 4. Like that it shows humidity level and shuts off when it reaches it. Great price. Easy to fill. Light weight. Very pleased with this, so far. Thanks for a medium size unit.
