    After doing extensive research on humidifiers, I am very glad that I purchased the Air-O-Swiss 7144. I wanted a humidifier for my young children since we often run our heater 24-hours a day and as a result have very dry skin. I also have a newborn that has been having problems with chest congestion and my doctor encouraged me to purchase a humidifier for his room.

    I have used the Air-O-Swiss 7144 Humidifier now in both of my boy's rooms as they sleep and they have had no complaints. The humidifier is quiet (except for an occasional water gurgle sound), even on the heat setting the unit does not get too hot to touch and it is programmable. I also like how the spray of the humidifier is pushed up and out of the unit. I do find that there is a little condensation on the top of the unit and on the table where it stands, but it is minor and I just keep a towel handy to occasionally dry it off.

    My only complaint about the unit is that it makes a wet and drippy mess when trying to refill. The base of the unit still has water in it when you take out the empty reservoir. The bottom of the water reservoir is wet (really wet) and drips all over the table/furniture and carpet as you carry it to be refilled.

    We have tried to keep a towel close but it is tricky to pick up the water reservoir with one hand and then get a towel under it with the other; you still get lots of water on the table and on the electronics/power cable of the unit. We have not had a problem with the humidifier not working because of the water spills, since we are quick to clean it up but it could potentially shorten the life of the unit. Also, I have to refill it once a day, so the added cleaning/drying of the area around the humidifier is an added step.

    I am overall very happy with the humidifier. If it were not so expensive we would purchase more, one for each room. Also, I would be interested in purchasing one with a bigger water reservoir so that it doesn't have to be filled daily. Besides that, we are enjoying the benefits of having more moisture in our air, especially for our children.

    Consumer Review of AOS 7144

    Approx. 2-3 weeks ago, I purchased the AOS 7144. I used it overnight for about 4-5 nights. I put the heat set on, the continuous use setting, the low mist output setting, and 50% humidity setting. The good news is that the AOS 7144 is very quiet and doesn't have to be cleaned every couple days. The bad news is as follows:

    The "warm" mist was not warm but more cool to lukewarm, the mist output was designed to shut off when the room reached the target value, which in my case was 50%. I ended up with cool to lukewarm mist when it put out mist, but when it reached target value it turned into a very expensive heat "blower" with no mist. By no means was my room "toasty" warm as it was when I used the much less expensive Vicks 7145, which gave very warm mist all night and was also very quiet, but does have to be cleaned all the time.

    The AOS is now in my closet and for the cool nights I use the Vicks 7145. I will pull out the AOS 7144 this summer for the cool mist, which it should do very well, if not, I will buy a less expensive cool mist humidifier for the summer.

    I did not see any benefit or value to me to complain to the company this is how it was designed to work. My mistake.

    Comments about Air-O-Swiss 7144 Ultrasonic Digital Humidifier:

    We really like the product. It does just what they claim it does. It is a small yet quite powerful humidifier. The only downfall is it requires daily refills even on the lowest setting. I would recommend it to anyone.
