Honeywell Quietcare Humidifier

Honeywell Quietcare humidifierHoneywell humidifiers, part of the Kaz group of companies, have a strong reputation. For example, in its Best Humidifiers survey, Good Housekeeping rated the $80 Honeywell HCM-300T QuietCare Humidifier as the Number One product (with another Honeywell model coming in at Number Two).

The magazine wrote:

It raised room humidity to 50 percent in under a half hour, and is rated to run for 25 hours before needing a refill. The UV light disinfects the water (but as with all humidifiers, you should still clean the unit regularly). Maximum electricity cost to run: $1.32 per month.

According to Amazon.com figures, at the time of writing the most popular Quietcare model was the $70 Honeywell HCM-630 QuietCare Humidifier (picture).

According to a product description:

Simply fill the removable water tank with up to 3 gallons of water, then position it into the base, and turn the unit on with a simple turn of the dial. The unit offers three moisture settings and an adjustable humidistat to accommodate individual preferences. Even more, the humidifier's transparent water tank allows for monitoring water levels at a glance, while its quiet operation makes it a nice choice for in a bedroom, office, or nursery.

Other highlights include an anti microbial-treated filter that helps prevent the growth of mold and bacteria on the filter, a compact space-saving shape for out-of-the-way placement just about anywhere, and an easy-to-clean durable design for long-lasting performance.

This unit had received an impressive 68 customer reviews at Amazon.com, with nearly 60% of these four-star or five-star reviews.

Here is a five-star review:

As quiet as advertised, and the quietest humidifier I have ever bought or prescribed for patients in 50 years. Highly recommended, especially for bedrooms. Sometimes we have to check to see if it is working!

An excerpt from a four-star review:

Pros - works very well,quiet,and really puts out the moisture without any of the white residue.

Cons - misleading water capacity and need to refill often.

And part of a two-star review:

The most annoying thing though is the absence of an automatic shutoff and indicator light when the water level gets too low. Because the tank is in the back of the unit, it is hard to see the water level. This thing will run and run and run without water, drying out the filter so you have to take it out an re-soak it again. While stylistically nicer, this unit's functionality is a real step down from previous generations of their humidifiers.
