I've struggled over the years to find a humidifier for the winter-time that is easy to use, easy to clean, easy to operate, and one that can really do the job. The last few years I've used four units that don't get the job done (not enough humidification) and have to be refilled every five hours. I spec'ed out a whole house steam humidifier that came in at a price quote of $1,600. We can't afford that, so I decided to do some research on room sized units.
I settled on this Elechomes 8820 model. I received it three days ago and Hallelujah! not only is it easy to operate, it actually delivers the humidity we need! I am so pleased that I bought a second unit for the living room/kitchen.
This is easy to fill, you can turn off the lights at night to sleep, all varieties of humidity level and heat or cool are available. It runs more than a day on a tank, and is easy to clean.
I am totally pleased with this humidifier. If you have struggled over the years to find something that works at a super reasonable price, look no farther.
