We all know that high humidity is a perfect environment for the development of mold and germs. As such, people who struggle with high indoor humidity should invest in the best dehumidifier if they wish to protect the health of their family. However, if you live in an area with a low humidity level, you should forget all about dehumidifiers and instead, find a good humidifier. Today we want to talk about an affordable yet efficient model: the Honeywell HCM-350.
- It weighs 9.6 pounds.
- It measures 18.6″ by 10.4″ by 13″.
As you can see, it can easily be moved around the house as it is light and rather small. The design is pretty common among these devices, featuring a white plastic finish with a blue water tank. It does not have the most flattering design that we have ever seen, yet it is not so bad that it needs to be hidden behind furniture.
How it works
It uses an ultra-violet technology that kills over 99.9% of common household bacteria. It uses unfiltered tap water which flows from the tank into the UV path where it is purified of bacteria, fungus, and various viruses. The purified water is absorbed by the filter located at the base of the device. The indoor air is drawn through the filter which absorbs the moisture, and then it emits a purified and refreshing cool mist.
This device is built for convenience. It features a durable tank that can easily be cleaned and refilled. In fact, both the water tank and the tray are dishwasher safe, so no hassle is involved with cleaning these parts. It also features a Protec Filter which is designed to repel the growth of mold and bacteria onto it. Furthermore, after two hours of continuous use, it removes over 99.9% of airborne bacteria.
This is an evaporative machine which runs quietly and features adjustable mist settings. It has three different speed levels and can continuously run for 24 hours with a single fill. It has a 2.0-gallon moisture output and a 1.1-gallon capacity of the tank. The operation requires 120.0 V, and it is best suited for rooms up to 500-800 square feet. Additionally, it comes with a 3-year limited manufacturer warranty.
