The humidifier is designed for large spaces and multi-room areas. It can easily cover up to 2,300 square feet.
The unit is round-shaped and nicely designed. What’s immediately striking is the weight. The Honeywell Cool Moisture weighs 20 pounds, which more than many average humidifiers of its size.
However, despite the weight – it’s still very portable. The casters and its built-in handle make it very easy to move around, so no problems there…
The unit has a dual 9-gallon water tank and it’s very easy to use. Each part of the tank can be removed, filled and put back separately, which really simplifies the whole process.
Now, what’s really great about the Honeywell Cool Moisture is you can keep one of the tanks in place, while you refill the other. Therefore, you don’t have to switch the unit off when refilling. Smart and practical.
Also, the switching between tanks is a breeze. When you remove one tank from the unit base, the other one will start supplying water to keep the humidifier running.
In addition to this…
The humidifier is very easy to clean and maintain. It also goes for the wick, because it’s reusable. The good thing is you don’t have to replace the wick every time you’re cleaning the humidifier.
But there’s another great feature.
We’re talking about the Protec Antimicrobial Cleaning Cartridge. This cartridge (some also call it “filter”) absorbs the water coming from the water tank. the unit then draws the dry, indoor air and captures all the dust and dirt. The air that goes out is clean and fresh.
This feature has been praised by so many users who had problems with allergies or breathing in dry air. They simply love it, so it’s worth pointing out!
Now, about the drawbacks….
Although this humidifier is advertised as being 30% less noisy than the competition, most customer reviews don’t agree with it.
For example, one user told us it’s impossible to put the humidifier in the bedroom because there is too much noise. And when the unit is in low speed, there is a lot of rattling.
The reason for this is the whole construction of the humidifier is a bit flimsy and prone to rattling. The water tanks are also flimsy and, if you want to fill them in the sink, you have to hold them. They are simply designed that way.
So many people have complained about this because they can’t simply leave the tanks in the sink and let them fill. Moreover, if you’re not careful, the tanks can crack easily.
However, these are definitely not the biggest of issues because the Honeywell Cool Moisture works really well. The majority of users agree that, in spite of the issues, this humidifier will get the job done and keep the house air fresh. It has its flaws, that’s for sure, but when it comes to humidifying it’s rock-solid.
