Purchased this to replace an older "drip" version humidifier. This paper wick is a better design concept as the impurities in the water are left in the wick rather than concentrating in the bottom of the drip design pan. Have only used for about a month, but notice the wick is "stiff" (dry) and discolored from the top. Will try to clean as I have seen other comments noting success and use for an entire season.

It is loud on high, but during the night this is fine as we have located in the hallway close to a cold air return. Tanks (on both sides of the tower) hold 1 gallon each, so in theory, these would need to be refilled 3 times per day to get a 6 gallon output. I have had multiple instances were one tank would be empty and the other full and the unit off indicating it needed to be filled - appears to be some sensitivity to how the tanks are reinstalled after filling. Another nuance, the size of the opening for the fill - get a funnel to make it easier. Would like to see the tanks have a 1.5 gallon capacity, but that would increase the weight by 50%, no problem for me, but for others...

A few minor design tweaks and this would be a 5-Star product!

I use it in my bedroom at night. Has four speed settings. I use #1 because the other three are too loud.
Someone complained it leaks if you don't replace one of the tanks properly.The instructions recommend using it on a flat surface. Not on carpeting. I use a cookie sheet on top of my carpeting. Collects any excess water or leakage.

    Comments about ESSICK AIR AIRCARE Air Multi-Room Evaporative Humidifier (D46720):

    This is absolutely the worst humidifier I have ever purchased. The cheap water caps do not thread well at all. The tanks will definitely leak when you try to engage them into their holding places. Do not set this humidifier on carpet or you will not be happy when the unit leaks. The noise level on setting 4 is much too loud. Most sinks do not allow for easy filling of the tanks.

        Very difficult to get filled sides back on and if you do not get it the first time it starts to put out water...on the floor. I am fairly able to concure most things, not this, returned it for a front loader and oh so much nicer.

          We replaced a ultrasonie humidifier with this unit, and use it to keep the air in our 1800sq ft home humidified. The Fast two speeds are really noisy, but we use the low speed at night and it is quiet. Have had the unit for only a couple weeks, but it seems to do the job.

          This humidifier is unobtrusive and efficient. It has several fan options, and the lower ones are very quiet. Unfortunately, it is awkward to fill. There are two "bottles" fitted into its sides, which have to be removed and filled, then slid into place. The procedure is awkward.

            Comments about ESSICK AIR AIRCARE Air Multi-Room Evaporative Humidifier (D46720):

            This it the third winter I have owned this humidifier and cannot live without it! Water bottles are not hard to fill and are not too heavy. The long narrow design balances the weight nicely. Fills quickly at the kitchen sink and slides right back into place. The best central spot in my home is a carpeted area and recommended use is on hard surfaces only. I easily resolved this by purchasing a nice stone floor tile (16" x 16" was about $2) to place it on. Replacement wicks are not expensive and easy to find. The tabs on the filter doors are a bit flimsy but if you put the unit on the table or counter when replacing instead of trying to do it from the floor, you should have no problems. If this one ever goes out, I would happily spend the money to buy it again.

            I read the reviews before I purchased this and so far I am well pleased with it. The reason I bought it is because my dog's skin got so dry and itchy when it was so cold and I needed extra humidity in the house. We have a humidifier on our furnace, but it wasn't enough. The containers are difficult to fill and it can be noisy on the higher settings, but overall this has been a lifesaver and I would recommend this product as a viable addition to any home.

                The unit basically does what its suppossed to do, but appears
                somewhat flimsy. Often the needs water light will go on when the tanks are not empty, a "jiggle" of the tank will fill the reservoir and the light will go off. Several times we have awakened to see the needs water light on when it shouldn't have been and the unit had not run when it should have.

                The latches holding the vent doors broke easily, but I've used clear tape on the corners to hold them on. But, the motor just burned out after 5-6 years of use only in winter (not continuous all day or all night use). I agree with others that fan setting 4 is a bit noisy, but 3 is fine, even in TV area. It was really good for adding humidity in a large room. I'm torn about this humidifier. I'm thinking about purchasing another, because it's the only one that will fit in the space I need to put it in, but worry about buying something that only lasts 5-6 years. I would recommend to friends with limitations.

                  I have made several humidifier purchases and they all turned out to be worthless. This one works great and is worth the extra price for the large gallon capacity and square footage coverage. The fan has four speeds, and is practically silent on the lower two settings, which is rare. Living in Colorado, we have very dry winters and static electricity is literally shocking. Since purchasing this product three weeks ago, we have put about 50 gallons through it and still have not established a good baseline humidity level. The machine is working great so far and has run non-stop since I brought it home. Why this is only an online only product baffles my mind. It should be in every dry climate Ace Hardware!

                      This humidifier has stopped my static electricity shocks from everything I would touch. Settings one and two are quiet but 3 and 4 tend to be noisy. Go to them when I leave home. Been using two weeks with no complaints so far. On setting two it puts out about three gallons a day and will do six on the higher settings.

                        Nice looking unit, blends into furnishings, and very easy to fill. Very quiet on fan speed 1 or 2, and speed 2 is all that's needed to do our second floor. Only needs filling every couple days.

                          I use it in my bedroom at night. Has four speed settings. I use #1 because the other three are too loud.
                          Someone complained it leaks if you don't replace one of the tanks properly.The instructions recommend using it on a flat surface. Not on carpeting. I use a cookie sheet on top of my carpeting. Collects any excess water or leakage.

                            It's lasted for 3 or 4 winters now and still working fine. The tall, narrow design is nice because it holds more water than most portable humidifiers but doesn't take up a lot of space. I clean mine by using a spray bottle filled with vinegar and just wipe and rinse clean.

                            If you don't get the refill tank set right exactly on the tower and the valve on the bottom of the refill tank gets bumped it can and will run some water out. This makes for a mess, especially on carpet! This has happened numerous times for me so I try and make sure I use it on a bare floor but even then you still have water to wipe up.
