Honeywell HWM705B Warm Mist Humidifier Review


Honeywell HWM705B Filter Free Warm Moisture Humidifier Review

Honeywell HWM705B is well designed warm mist humidifier with moisture output around 1 gallon per 24 hours. That is enough for rooms up to 250 square feet. Honeywell HWM705B is filter free. It provides soothing, a visible warm mist that helps make you and your home more comfortable. Also, the Honeywell HWM705B price is very friendly.

Design and size

Honeywell HWM705B looks like a classical humidifier. It has a transparent water tank with the top-fill design. Filing the top-fill tank is as easy as spraying a plant. The water tank is also removable.

The humidifier is small, height x width x depth is 12 x 10.5 x 6.2 inches, weight is only 5 pounds. The best place for it is table or rack.

Features

  • Auto shut-off when empty. This means you don’t have to bother if the water in the reservoir falls below minimum levels.
  • For your convenience, a refill light illuminates when water container needs to be filled.
  • 2 moisture output settings allow you to choose the best option according to your comfort levels.
  • Deep and narrow medicine cup enables you to put in essential oils for aromatherapy.
  • Easy to use manual knob control.
  • Illuminated power switch.
  • The boiling water kills bacteria in the water. Cool mist humidifiers do not do that.

Noise level

For a warm-mist humidifier, it is very quiet.

It makes some noise when water boils and when the water level falls and allows water to flow from the tank you get a gurgling noise as air replaces the liquid in the reservoir. Good thing is that the design is very clever and unit blocks most of the noise beginning with the plastic baffle and then through the cooling tower.

Maintenance and upkeep

Very easy cleaning. Soak the unit in vinegar for about 15 minutes. Then brush off the scale of the with a toothbrush like a large tooth.

Plastic parts are also easy to clean.

The water tank is quite large and the unit works for 24 hours. So you don’t have to refill it often. Also, refilling is super easy.

Summary

Honeywell HWM705B is great warm mist humidifier. It has all you need and even more. No crazy cleaning, no refilling every hour. Plus it has a medicine cup and you can use it as a diffuser.

Pluses:

  • Well designed
  • Strong handle for water tank
  • Medicine cup for added relief when used with liquid inhalants
  • Easy to fill water
  • Refill light
  • No filters

Minuses:

  • Only 2-speed settings could be more

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.
