    Comments about Essick Air 4-Speed Console Style Humidifier:

    This humidifier has completely changed the breathing for my family. I have always suffered from dry throat and congestion due to heavy mouth breathing and my recent move to Colorado. My daughter suffers from severe croup due to a small airway and since getting this humidifier, we have not been back to the ER! She sleeps so much better now (through the night easily at 19 months old!). I can feel a huge difference in the morning after having this on through the night. I don't wake up and need to blow my nose for five minutes just to feel human.
    Even with frequent use, it does not take much up keep, the tank is so big that I only need to refill it every few days. It is awkward to fit the tank in the sink so we had to develop a system with the provided hose to get it filled by the filter on the faucet. However, I am able to set it up and leave it to fill and then return when it is complete. It has brought my home humidity from ~11% to 55%. No more spending precious time covering my family in lotion and squirting the kids' noses with saline!
    The only difficult part about ordering this product was determining which would work best in my house (multi levels). While it states it will provide for the whole house, I am still using a personal humidifier in the back bedroom. Order shipped immediately and was so easy to put together that I almost felt as if I was doing something wrong! I highly recommend this!

    Essick Humidifier

    By Ashley Reiter

    from USA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Essick Air 4-Speed Console Style Humidifier:

    We decided on ordering this model after moving into a new house that has very dry heat (coal furnace and oil furnace). We chose this model because of the square footage it is able to humidify. Assembly was pretty easy except for putting the cover with the fan on. I had to push the top edges of the cabinet in in order to get the cover to snap on.

    The cabinet is pretty flimsy and had a scratch in the finish when I received it but luckily it was in the back of the unit so it is easy to hide. It does have a refill indicator light but it would be nice to have some kind of thing to tell how low the water is before the unit is completely emptied. I have to refill it once a day. At least it shuts off automatically when it needs refilled and it is easy to refill with the hose that comes with it. I have to hold the hose onto the faucet to keep it from slipping off. The manual does say that the hose might not fit onto some faucets so it might just be the type of faucet we have.

    I have it on the lowest speed setting because anything above that is too loud when we are trying to watch tv. It comes with a bottle of water conditioning so you do not have to buy distilled water like some of the units we have had in the past.

    Hanley's Humid Review

    By James Hanley

    from USA

    Comments about Essick Air 4-Speed Console Style Humidifier:

    Does a great job adding moisture to the home. It's quite load on medium or high fan settings. This is likely due to the light plastic construction. Despite the flimsy cabinet, the unit seems to operate well. Filling method is acceptable, but I have to hold the rubber flange on to my kitchen faucet during filling, which is a bit of a pain.

    Does Not Last Very Long

    By nancy knadler

    from USA

    Comments about Essick Air 4-Speed Console Style Humidifier:

    I purchased this humidifier H12-300 and on its second birthday the motor went bad.--
    Only used it about 5 months out of the year. I believe a product this expensive should last longer than 2 years?

    Ahh, sweet humidity

    By Mario Brunetti

    from USA

    Comments about Essick Air 4-Speed Console Style Humidifier:

    Houston, we have humidity.

    I live in Michigan and usually need to start running a humidifier from October to April. After two failed attempts at humidifying my home via a furnace humidifier and room humidifiers, I finally have found success with this console humidifier. My high efficiency furnace seems to consume any water vapor introduced into it. The drip type humidifier originally on it didn't budge my hygrometer a bit. I tried a drum type humidifier with similar results. A couple of room humidifiers were ok, but they were running constantly and usually falling behind.

    The Bemis/Essick Air 3-Speed Console Style Humidifier Model H12-300 isn't the prettiest thing, but the functionality is great. Note that the product information says it has a tank capacity of 5 gallons. The actual bottle holds only 2.5 gallons, so I have to assume that the reservoir holds the other 2.5 gallons. Filling the bottle is a little bit clumsy at first, but you'll get the hang of it.
    This model runs about 5-15 minutes an hour. I am targeting 30-35% humidity, the outside temp is in the 20s and my house is 2300 square feet. I have the fan speed setting in the middle. It's somewhat load at that setting, but it works quickly there.
    Setting up the humidifier was very easy. Just make sure that the float assembly is lined up properly so it will work and make sure you hear the glug, glug of water coming out of the bottle when you put it in the console, because you can misalign it.
    My nasal passages are feeling much better.
