Good unit, but high price point We've been using this unit for a couple of seasons, now.
On the upside:
* Easy to fill
* QUIET as compare to many other humidifiers
* Does a great job of getting water into the air
* Does a good enough job taking junk out of the air to make you recoil in horror at the debris you have been breathing.
* The weekly clean is easy enough - just need to wash the basin with soap and water).
On the downside:
* The price is high for a humidifier.
* You must do a more indepth clean once a month. It is not hard, it is just a pain in the ....
All in all, I like this unit.
Please do not be detered by the bad smell review. Like all humidifiers, this unit must be cleaned. I left mine too many days, once, and it blew a foul odor into the room. A quick wash down fixed that.
cleans air and humidifies I really like this product and have no idea what the review about the 'bad smell' is all about. I mean, this unit is all plastic, and you add water, just like any humidifier, so if you have a bad smell it must be coming from the water, or you have some nastiness in your house that is being multiplied by the humidity. The only thing I can smell is the smell of water.
Anyway, I am sitting here in the middle of a blizzard in Colorado, and of course I have my furnace going full steam. For my small house (750 sq. ft.) it keeps the humididty about 10-15 points higher. So according to my hygrometer, it is at 35% right now, and without the air-o-swiss running it goes down to around 20% (pretty dry huh). I am actually thinking of getting another one, as I want one for my bedroom and my living room.
This product is comparable to the Venta (which I have also tried), but it is cheaper and easier to fill. With the Venta you have to either pick up the whole unit, or buckets to fill it. A pain. With this guy you just re-fill the plastic water tank, which holds a little over a gallon. The unit itself holds another gallon internally, so you have to re-fill it twice the first time. I find that I am re-filling it about once a day, and it takes all of 1/2 a minute, real convienient.
As far as cleaning goes, I just did that last night after about 3 weeks of use. I simply put the base unit in the sink and sprayed the interior down. Everything comes apart/goes back together easily. There was some dusty dirt type stuff in there, which is cool, b/c that means that this guy is actually doing what it says, i.e. cleaning the air.
So I really like this product, and like I said, I am thinking of getting another. - Matt...more info
Not worth the money, smells yucky I was told that this was a wonderful product because of the ways that it does not need a filter, nor do you have to add humidifier bacteriostat liquids. My air-o-swiss began to have a nasty odor after 6 days of continuous use. Since I have heard such great things about this brand, I am somewhat inclined to think I had a 'dud' seeing that when I returned it the employees told me they have "very few problems". So buy it from a reputable store so that you may return it if you encounter any problems, as I did. Good luck to you...more info
