The Bionaire BCM658-U Cool Mist Tower Humidifier features a permanent filter, which will save you money as it does not need regular replacement. An AccuSet digital humidistat multifunctional display will automatically monitor and maintain your ideal humidity and even displays the room’s humidity level when the humidifier is off; microban antimicrobial protection is infused into the housing and filter of the humidifier to help prevent the growth of bacteria; and, finally, the permanent filter is treated with Arm & Hammer odor-eliminating technology for extra freshness.
The most common complaint is that the tank is difficult to fill. Due to its height, it cannot be filled in a standard kitchen sink. The cap is on the bottom, so the water tank must be turned upside down to fill and, because of the curved design on top, it won’t stand on its own. However, the built-in digital humidistat is a definite bonus. You are able to set your desired humidity level and the unit then automatically cycles off once it is reached. Additionally, once that occurs, you can set the fan to the lowest setting and it will maintain the level you have chosen with minimal energy and noise.
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.
