At its maximum output, the humidifier churns out 10 gallons a day; at its most economical, it can run 36 hours on a single filling. The panel's adjustable controls let you choose between two speeds and program the digital humidistat for a humidity level between 30 and 65 percent. A long-life wick filter traps minerals and deposits as water travels through the machine, and Microban microbial protection helps combat bacteria, mold, and mildew. Other helpful features include power and refill lights, a filter gauge, and optional wheels. As with other humidifiers, this unit runs best if rinsed daily and de-scaled weekly. Wheels excluded, it measures 19 by 12 by 16 inches. Holmes includes a 6-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

Good product and company I purchased mine at Wal-mart on clearance for 50.00 and let me say it worked great, except the digital reader that shows the humidity percentage of the room did not work. I called the company and they were incredible with no automation or holding on the phone! I was very impressed and will buy from this company again.
As for the running of the machine, it kicks out a lot of humidity and air, doing a very good job, but there is a bit of noise from it (depending on the level it is set on). There are three levels (1-3), with the 3rd being the loudest. I don't mind the noise on 1 or 2 because it isn't noticeable. A nice feature is the three accuset modes where you can set three different desired humidity percentages and keep them locked in, and change them with the season (or whenever you wish) without needing to manually reset everything again. It is really convenient. The filters are hard to find since this model is out of production but it is a very effective humidifier....more info
Wine Cellar Friendly Bought the unit to augment the cooler/humidifier unit in my wine cellar. Try to keep my cellar at 54 degrees with 55-60% humidity. No problem with the temperature but sometimes in the Illinois winter, the humidity drops to the low 50s. This is a great humidifying unit which allows for slow, steady humidity being added or a high volume. Attractive, easy to fill, a great item. My only problem is getting replacement filters, not carried where I bought the product. HAVE TO FIND ON-LINE!...more info
great product First: If you're interested in this product, I got mine at Wal-mart at an end of season sale for $50. Typically they're about $79 there.
Secondly, this is a great product. I love that it has casters which make it easily portable, and its incredibly light without water in it....so light my three year old can pick it up. The side tanks are easily filled, though once you've done so they do become quite heavy, of course. I have had mine about one year and purchased it for a small 950 sq ft apt. We ran it for the course of a long, very cold winter and the accuset feature was wonderful. I didn't have to keep running over to turn it on and off as the humidity fell. It was the first winter of my 26 that I did not go through about 20 bottles of lotion and 15 bottles of Carmax.
There are several small issues to be highlighted, though really of no consequence: (1) the tanks are very heavy once filled with water and thus the trips from the bathtub are best done by someone WITHOUT a slipped disc, (2) while we quickly grew accustomed to the white noise, the unit is a tad loud, to the point that we actually had to turn our television and radio volume up louder than normal, (3) the rooms closest to the vicinity of the console are the best humidified while those farther away seem lacking - but thats to be expected, (4) replacement filters have to be ordered online direct from the company as the production of this unit has been discontinued - for me, a minor hassle.
All in all, I love my unit during the winter and wouldn't give it up. I absolutely recommend it....more info
