I live in a 2 BR apt with a large cathedral ceiling living room. Small Humidifiers work for the immediate area and in a single room. I wanted something to do the whole apt. With this being made for a whole house I was curious to see how it would work out. Leaving it centrally located, in my living room, I can leave it at the lowest humidity level and the fan on med. and the apt. is perfect. Noticed a difference within an hour of having it on. The vents to the side can be cold if you are seated near it, but it actually works well for me as one side blows down the whole towards one BR and the other goes the opposite direction towards the other BR. I usually dont like machines with filters but this cleans extremely easy. The water tank cannisters are a little awkward due to the rounded top for anesthestics and have to be balanced when filling but they aren't heavy so its ok. I only have to fill the tanks once a day also. as far as noise? I've noticed some vibration noise if one of the tanks or motor housing isnt set on base just right, but a little nudge to bump it into place and its fine. not turning up TV any extra and its quiter than a fan. Overall, I am extremely pleased with this product

Now that the kids are out of the house and it is just the two of us it is a constant battle to keep enough moisture in the air. Without additional help from a humidifier your nose and eyes are constantly dry and your nose will bleed in the winter. There isn't enough showering and humidity generation with just the two of us.
I had one of these and got two seasons out of it before the motor died. It was also a challenge to keep it clean so you don't poison yourself with mold. Constant cleaning and paying attention to the condition of the filter were just facts of life with this machine. It did do a decent job of adding humidity to the house during the winter months. I am now contemplating a built-in humidifier on my furnace v. replacing the one that died prematurely in my humble estimation.
Filling the tanks twice a day and listening to the drone of the motor while trying to watch TV or have a conversation over the motor noise drove me batty at times.

Comments about Honeywell HCM-6011G QuietCare 9 Gallon Console Humidifier:
I use this humidifier as a whole floor humidifier. I like that it is quiet. It does a fine job. It was advertised as running for 24 hours and I find that I go through the whole water supply in about 8 hours so do end up filling it twice a day. that part I don't like.
