Cool Mist action for relief of cold and flu symptoms, pure natural moisture through cool mist wicking filter.When cold and flu season strikes, it’s time to take this cool mist humidifier out of the closet. The humidifier provides healthful vapor that can help relieve the dehydrating symptoms brought on by colds and the flu, helping nasal passages breathe easily again and easing the irritation of coughs and sore throats. It offers a wonderful alternative therapy for children, those who prefer not to take over-the-counter medications, and those who can’t take decongestants due to pregnancy or incompatibility with other medications. This low-noise humidifier also takes preventative measures against colds by putting enough humidity in the air to combat the dryness caused by many heating systems. The humidity moistens the respiratory system and helps it to actually fight off viruses, bacteria, and pollutants.

The translucent water tank is easy to fill and monitor and outputs about 1.2 gallons of moist air into the room–enough for 18 hours of continuous use on one filling. Impurities or minerals in the water are trapped in an antibacterial wicking filter so vapor is pure and is emitted without any white dust. When the tank is empty, it totally drains without leaving any potentially bacteria-laden standing water in the bottom. Two settings–high and low–let you adjust the humidity level to the appropriate room size or moisture level and Vicks’s special “evaporative technology” also kicks in to ensure that rooms maintain the proper moisture level and are not overly humid. This humidifier has a dishwasher-safe tray for hygienic cleaning and is covered by a three-year warranty. –Cristina Vaamonde

    I have used this product for about 4-years now, same unit and still works great and I run it all night every night. I bought it when my daughter was sick on recommendation from the doctor and continued using it for the white noise created at the high speed. My daughter never slept well and this white noise helped her a lot. It also makes a huge difference in the air, when I forget to turn it on at night now I know in the morning it was not on because I wake up thirsty. Like with anything, you have to complete proper maintenance…keep it filled with water, change filters as needed, and clean at least twice a month to keep the mold out. — NOTE: The maintenance recommendation to run once a week with no water is only as long as it takes to dry the filter out and keep mold from growing on the filter. ALSO, if you do not properly screw the bottom back on after filling, the unit will leak. If properly screwed on, it will not. Highly recommended.

    I originally purchased this unit for my child’s room 2 years ago — worked fine. There was no soaked carpet, no leaks, no fires, and no problems finding filters. I even liked the level of sound – it would get loud gradually. My child (now 2 yrs old) loved the sound so much we had to find a sound machine to duplicate it.

    We purchased another unit for our second child’s room. Strangely, this unit worked differently than the first. The second one leaked (very litte – nothing a hand towel under the unit couldn’t fix) and was MUCH louder than the first. I also found that I needed to refill this unit more often than I did the first.

    I didn’t see too much of a problem with the difference, just thought it was worth mentioning…

    My Dry Room is Renewed…, January 6, 2005

    I started getting sick, and for the first time since grade school had a bloody nose. That coupled with getting dry mouthed and dry skin and chapped lips every morning made me consider a humidifer.

    When I went to the store I wanted a cool mist one, as cool mist would be nice in my room that is hot and dry during the winter. I expecte a misting machine, this thing doesnt mist, but I’m happy it doesn’t after reading all the review of people with soggy carpets because of their misters…

    Since having this I haven’t felt as dry in the morning which is nice, I breathe easier and started feeling better. It a little louder than some but if you dont like the noise, turn down the speed to lower at night, I personally like some background noise and keep it on high.

    The water last for a long time in these ones that use these wicks. There is only one downfall, mine is about a month old and the filter is getting pretty nasty already, although I admit my room is a dusty place and I’ve been using tap water. Apparently if you use those cheap 1 gallon Distilled waters the filter wont get all dirty or smelly as easily, as distilled water is pure, and tap water well….no matter what you think isn’t ;).

    PRO: Humidifies room with few refills and doesn’t soak room.

    CONS: The filter gets moldy/dirty pretty quick.

    Hopefully this is usefull, I’m happy with it and I’m sure you’d be.
