The Air-O-Swiss 7144 Ultrasonic Humidifier uses high-frequency vibrations to generate a microfine mist, preventing leaking and/or condensation on the unit. To avoid steam burn, you choose the pre-heating function and the mist then exits the machine at a pleasant 104 degrees Fahrenheit. A replaceable demineralization cartridge (Ag+ Ionic Silver Technology) ensures water mist without lime scale or mineral residues and a quad-band microbial protection system prevents microbial growth in the water base. To completely eliminate white dust buildup, though, it’s recommended to use reverse osmosis drinking water, which also has the added benefit of extending the life of the demineralization cartridge.
Most importantly, the Air-O-Swiss 7144 humidifier is equipped with ITC (Intelligent Temperature Compensation) technology that monitors the temperature to automatically adjust output when conditions change. In other words, this unit measures the humidity and turns on and off based on your chosen preset user selectable setting much like a thermostat does for heating and cooling.
One negative aspect to this unit is that the water tank is undersized and awkward to handle. Once removed, the odd shape makes it difficult to refill and prevent tipping. Additionally, it is nearly impossible to remove the tank without dripping water all over the floor because while installed in the unit, it actually sits in a pool of water; so just be sure to immediately wipe the base of the tank.
Although the tank is difficult to fill, it is equipped with a handle for easy carrying and a full tank will provide up to two night’s sleep free of irritating throat, nose, and skin conditions. Combined with it’s sleek, modern look and it’s state-of-the-art technology, the Air-O-Swiss 7144 Ultrasonic Humidifier is the perfect choice for someone serious about a good night’s sleep and maintaining a high quality of life.
One thing to keep in mind whenever using a humidifier is the type of tap water you have. Almost all humidifiers are tap water safe; however, the harder your tap water, the more white-dust buildup you will get in the room as well as inside the humidifier. If this happens, simply switch to filtered or distilled water.
