Delivers value and beauty

This pedestal humidifer not only delivers a constant humidity to your home, it looks great too! The design of the unit fits into most decor's. The quiet fan provides an even humidity throughout your home and provides the benefits of a humidity controlled environoment. The casters provide portability so it moves with you. The easy to read display provides reassurance of the moisture delivery. The selling point was the whole house delivery of humidity in an actractive unit. Not interested in those big boxes that look obtrusive - this unit delivers so much more and is attractive. My relatives thought it was a plant stand (I have a plant on the top as it has a tile top for just this purpose). All around, this was an excellent purchase.

Humidifier is top-shelf but included wick needs serious redesign

There are not many top fill humidifier models on the market anymore.? I think they began passing away in the 90's.? And by the way, "top fill" does not mean they fill necessary from the top but that they are filled without the use of jugs, containers, or bottles).? I really like the 9 different fan speeds, the removable 12" x 12" marble top piece, and the fact that it seems to hold a good deal more than the advertised 3.5 gallons in its reservoir.

But I have a serious beef with the design of the 1043 wick that comes with and seems most available as a replacement wick.? It sucks so bad.? Its a horrible design.? The horizontal glue lines that you see in most pictures of the wick (again I'm talking about the wick not the humidifier itself) are the only thing that support the wick once its sufficiently soaked with water after a couple of days.? The problem is gravity is not horizontal, its vertical, and the glue lines should have been vertical too because being horizontal they support squat and the wick sags and collapses until its totally worthless.

So I'm left stuffing objects and trying to set up platforms underneath the wick to scrunch it toward to the top to make up for the space made at the top when it collapses downward.

5 Stars for the humidifier.

-4 starts for the wick

5 + (-4) = 1 star

Gave me my Quality of Life Back

|

I grew up about 15 miles away from the coast. In 2017 I moved to 4,000 feet elevation. About a year into living in the desert, I began to experience frequent nosebleeds and round-the-clock headaches. I have a history of two sinus surgeries resulting from chronic infections many years ago so I knew what I was dealing with. I went to my doctor expecting to be treated for a sinus infection. I was told that nobody treats sinus infections with antibiotics anymore unless there is a fever (which I didn't have). I then saw two different Ear, Nose and Throat specialists who suggested I use a Neti pot — which I was already doing every single day — and then tried to convince me that my symptoms were allergies best treated by a steroid nasal spray (been there, done that too). At no time did anyone question my home environmental conditions even though I live/work in the desert, at high elevation and with a heat pump for cooling/heating my home throughout the year (which further dries out the air in my home). It on me to figure out what to do so on a lark I bought this AirCare whole house humidifier three years ago from Sears thinking it might help. I set it to 40% humidity in my home and that is sufficient to bring it up from the ~14% humidity that normally exists in my home. Yes, this unit has to be filled pretty much every day but that's an indication that it is doing what it is supposed to — converting water to humidity. I replace the wick and clean the unit with diluted bleach water when the "check filter" indicator comes on (which is roughly every 90 days). I drop in two ProTec humidifier cleaning "fish" into the water tank to prevent bacterial growth and mold between cleanings (they contain silver, which is antibacterial).

I can tell the difference if I turn this unit off or fail to refill it because the headaches and the nosebleeds will come back within 48 hours of the humidity level dropping below 30% in my home. The only negative is that the replacement wicks keep going up in cost (like everything else, unfortunately).

I like that this AirCare unit has a furniture type look vs. the look of an unsightly appliance.

Pedestal humidifier

|

Love it! The humidity adjusted within a couple hours and the digital screen shows the percentage. Sure beats my old belt-type. Easy to fill and use. Smaller than my console but does the job.
