Design and size

The Honeywell HCM-6009 has a unique round-shaped design. It is quite large and heavy. Height x width x depth is 17.5 x 21 x 13 inches and weight is 21 pounds. But the unit is easy to move because of the casters and built-in handle.

Features

  • The QuietCare HCM-6009 has some really great features.
  • It has a Protec Antimicrobial Cleaning Cartridge for fresher, cleaner moisture.
  • Easy-to-use manual knob controls.
  • Adjustable moisture control and various output settings.

  • Wide tank opening for easy cleaning.

Noise level

The QuietCare HCM-6009 has a QuietCare Operation. Manufacturers say that it helps reduce operating noise and makes the humidifier 30% quieter than similar models.

Well, the levels low and medium are really quiet but the level high is significantly louder. But don’t get it wrong. Yes, it is too loud to sleep but OK if you are talking or watching TV.

Maintenance and upkeep

The Honeywell’s QuietCare HCM-6009 maintenance has confirmed to be easy and totally manageable. Typically you will have to refill both tanks every day, but the refill regularity will vary.

Uses less power than an 80-watt light bulb.

While the Protec cartridge and antimicrobial treated filter blocks most undesired build-up, the unit requires regular cleaning and filters should be replaced regularly.

Summary

Honeywell’s QuietCare HCM-6009 has a great reputation in the market. The unit does its job great – with high-level setting your room humidity level will rise extremely fast. It has a high capacity, large tanks have handles, filters also the air in the room. Great humidifier with some valuable additional features.

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.
