These days people need reliable appliances that don’t involve putting too much effort into using them. The Honeywell HWM 950 is a machine that can provide the moisture that a home needs without requiring special care. Furthermore, it does not incorporate a filter, so its owner doesn’t have to worry about cleaning any type of mess. However, it features a heating element that needs to be cleaned constantly.
This Honeywell machine has a stylish design that makes it go perfectly with any type of decor, thus not only helping improve indoor conditions but doubling as a decorative piece as well. It measures 12.2 inches by 7.6 inches by 12.6 inches, which means that it won’t take up a lot of space. Furthermore, as a 3-year warranty is provided for it, you are ensured of the fact that it is a long-lasting acquisition.
It is therapeutic because it comes with a medicine cup for liquid inhalants, so medication can be evaporated with the steam heat that it releases. Moreover, the mist passes by the medicine cup that you can fill with inhalants to relieve dry air symptoms. It is very easy to clean, especially because there aren’t any filters to change.
- It features a wide top which means that you can easily fill it from above.
- It features a small tank that holds 0.7 gallons of water.
- Ideal for use in rooms and spaces of up to 500 square feet.
In case you want a humidifier that uses the same technology but is designed for larger rooms, you can opt for the Vicks 1.5. As found in the Vicks review, it is ideal for rooms up to 1000-1200 square feet, having the capacity and the mist output of 1.5 gallons. The 950 has two moisture output settings featured by the EasySet, a high and a low output. So, you can adjust the quantity of mist that the device can dispense. Furthermore, the Refill Light function allows you to see when water needs to be added into the tank, so it doesn’t matter that the tank is made from dark plastic and you can’t see when it needs a refill.
It is perfect for people who live in a cold climate because it can help them control their home’s air moisture levels very easy. Its QuickSteam Warm Moisture System heats and purifies the water, so if you have problems with your dry air, you can use it to get rid of congestion, cough, allergies, breathing problems and wheezing. Unlike other similar products, it can perform for up to 24 hours on a low output without making any noise. Since it provides warm mist, it actually boils the water, so it should not be left running if you leave your house. It’s true that it incorporates an automatic shut-off function that allows it to stop when it runs out of the water, but if that fails, the heating element can cause a fire. The hot element can also cause burns if touched. Therefore, it must be placed somewhere where small children don’t have access.
- Automatically shuts off when the water tank is emptied.
- Provides you with 2 moisture output settings in order to customize its performance as you please.
- Due to the medicine cup it comes with, it can be used to evaporate medicine into the air.
- Designed to be used in areas of up to 500 square feet.
- Lack of a filter makes it one of the more cost-efficient machines out there.
