Bionaire Humidifier Filter

Bionaire humidifier filterThe Bionaire website has information on Bionaire humidifier filters that the company sells directly. However, you can usually get better deals through online outlets like Amazon.com, which will also offer Bionaire humidifier filter replacements from other manufacturers.

A good place to start is the Amazon.com Best-Sellers in Replacement Filters list, which is updated hourly. Bionaire humidifier filters are normally found on this list.

One of the top sellers at the time of writing was the BWF100 Bionaire Humidifier Replacement Filter (3 Pack) (picture). It had attracted 11 customer reviews at Amazon.com. Note that these were very mixed - just four reviews that were four-star or five-star, and a further five reviews that were one-star or two star.

Read them all to learn whether these are the filters for you (although if you have a Bionaire humidifier you may not have too much choice). Here is an excerpt from a lengthy and very useful three-star review:

Now, here's the annoying part, and why I only gave this product 3 of 5 stars ... they're needlessly fragile by design. The manufacturer WANTS you to keep regularly buying replacement sponges, just like inkjet printer manufacturers want to keep selling you overpriced ink cartridges. Even though I have fairly soft water, and use a carbon block filter, these wicks only seem to last me about 2 weeks per pair, by default, before they lose their ability to absorb/wick moisture and/or fall apart. Perhaps someday someone will make longer-lasting reuseable cloth replacement filters, but as of this writing, there don't appear to be any available ... because it's against the manufacturer's fiscal interests to make and sell such.

You can save money 2 ways:

1) SHOP AROUND: you can save as much as 50% by shopping around for the cheapest supplier, and scoffing at any implied manufacturer product loyalty. How ? The replacement filters for Holmes (HWF100) and Bionaire (BWF100) are functionally identical and interchangeable. They come 6 to a package (3 pairs).

2) RINSING: These wicks are rather fragile - resist the urge to wring them out when rinsing them, or you'll damage them. Instead, fill a sink with body-temperature water, let them soak for 5-10 mins (to let the deposits soften & par-dissolve), then gently press them flat (while submerged) a few times. Then drain them (don't wring them) and reinstall. That should extend their performance by another week or so. Each subsequent rinse will yield only half the benefit though. At best, you'll be able to double their lifespan.

Bottom line: I don't really recommend these wicks ... but if your humidifier requires them, there isn't much choice. However, if you use the tips I listed above, you can save up to half the cost, and make them last as much as twice as long.
