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.
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
I am so happy I bought this humidifier. Works very well. Was having issues with my sinises especially at night. After a few days with it running everything cleared up.
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.
Bought this to humidify living roo. I don’t love the plastic fake furniture look but it works well. Fills easily with a watering can.
