This new whole-house humidifier features a digital control panel displaying the actual and set humidities as well as fan speeds (1-9). The refill indicator and automatic shutoff allow for easy and safe operation. With a 13 gallon per day output, this console helps alleviate dry skin and allergy symptoms. The moist air reduces static electricity, dust and dander. Because this unit provides humidity coverage up to 2,700 sq. ft., thermostat settings can be reduced saving money on heating costs.

The internal humidistat doesn't work and reports higher relative humidity than actually exists in the room. The air filter isn't designed to fit tightly which permits air to easily circumvent the filter and enter the unit. The body is constructed of a thinner plastic than I'd expect, giving it a flimsy feel. Incidentally, the thinness of the body plastic made it difficult to place the top onto the unit. While the caps on the reservoirs are made of hard plastic, the reservoirs themselves are made of a softer plastic. If I cross-thread the caps (it was very difficult to avoid cross-threading the caps), I'm afraid I'll permit water to flow from the neck of the reservoirs, causing the unit to overfill and spill no less than 6 gallons of water all over my floor.
Pros: digital display, intuitive to use, relatively quick setup, large resevoir
