Noise level

On low-speed, the humidifier is whisper quiet.

On medium, it provides a peaceful, gentle white noise

On high speed, it sounds like a fan.

The Honeywell HCM-350 is ideal for people who like a light background noise while resting or sleeping.

Maintenance and upkeep

The maintenance is easy. If you are using the humidifier every day than you have to refill it once a day or more.

All the rest maintenance depends on how clean water you use. But optimally clean the humidifier every 3-4 weeks. Clean the water tank and soak the filter in a vinegar/water, it can get crusty.

My name is Ryan. I have had a hard time dealing with my allergies. Happily, I found that an air purifier was effective to ease my allergy symptoms. I spent a lot of time researching the best air purifier. I know how hard it can be to find the suitable one.

During the reading period, I also read a lot about humidifiers and dehumidifiers. I learned the mechanisms behind the technologies as well as the manufacturers and organizations within the industry.

I now feel convinced that I have built a guide that shows you all you need to know about air purifiers, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers. So I came up with the idea of creating this website.
