These dual tank- 1 gallon each warm mist humidifiers feel like the warmth of a greenhouse, and will humidify a room exceptionally fast. An occasional gurgling sound may irritate some, but otherwise this is the quietest humidifier we carry. An ultraviolet light and vaporization assure a bacteria free mist. Slant fin humidifiers do not have a digital humidistat, and mineral pads do need replacing if distilled water is not used. That being said, the Slant Fin is our favorite humidifier overall and its reliability record is excellent.

The Slant Fin GF-220 warm-mist air humidifier is truly unique from most other brands since they use an exclusive dual-germicidal process that includes ultraviolet light (UV) and vaporization (boiling) to deliver mist that has been laboratory tested to be 99.999% germ-free. This unit has dual 1 gallon tanks that make refilling very easy. The unit is well balanced and makes a great warm mist humidifier.
Pluses:

  • This humidifier clearly is ideal for those who are concerned about killing germs and bacteria
  • The mineral pads included with the unit do absorb minerals and white dust that often is emitted into the air with other warm mist humidifiers
  • A quiet humidifier - ideal for the bedroom
  • Stainless steel reservoir makes it quite durable
  • Lasts for 24 hours before refilling water


Minuses:


  • The unit still needs to be cleaned by hand at least once a week (although not as often as some other humidifier models we tested)
  • While there are no wicks or filters to change, the humidifier needs new mineral pads (3-4 weeks) and ultra violet bulb replacement every 1-2 years (see care instructions above).
  • Only one speed
  • No digital humidistat display


Summary: The Slant Fin GF-220 was rated excellent by our consumer staff and the ultra violet light is unique to the Slant Fin line of humidifiers. If you want a healthy quiet humidifier this is a great choice.
