The Vornado HU1-0021-28 Whole-Room Evaporative Humidifier features a deep-pitch blade circulator that pulls dry air through the unit’s two humidifying filters and then pushes the moist air further into the room. In addition, it recovers and circulates heat off the ceiling to help maintain an even room temperature.
Unlike most humidifiers, this one is backed by a 5-year limited warranty. This particular model replaces an older, discontinued Vornado Evaporative Humidifier and is definitely an improvement. There is no more water leakage during transport (unless you actively press the spring-loaded dispenser button) due to its screw-in dispenser. Also, removing and re-seating the fan motor is much easier. Finally, the digital humidity level control makes choosing and setting a specific humidity level extremely simple.
In other words, this cool mist humidifier is reasonably priced, easy to use, quiet for an evaporative/fan driven humidifier, reliable, fairly easy to clean and maintain, and comes with a 5-year limited warranty.
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.
