This Humidifier is super quiet, and efficient. I mean efficient because after a couple of days of it being on, there was still a lot of water left! My old humidifier was loud and I had to consistently refill the water everyday. It’s also very compact and looks good! It fits almost anywhere in the house. There is a setting for the humidification level % and strength of the airflow. Even at the highest level it’s still way quieter than my Vornado humidifier! There’s a nice LED indicator that stays on to let you know and you can dim it as well. I have it in my nursery and it’s perfect!!!
