I love writing reviews of great products. Unfortunately in this case I have to write a clinker. This is a classic example of something that is created to "look" like it should do something, but does nothing. I think the main problem is that the water tray is so undersized that there is never enough water supplied to soak the evaporator pad. As someone else posted (maybe under the Honeywell branded version), the pad gets damp maybe a couple inches up, but otherwise remains dry. As a result the humidifier just doesn't do anything of any significance. I have a humidistat and have owned Hunter and Duracraft humidifiers in the past that worked, so I am qualified to make these statements.
I tried shimming up one end of the unit hoping that it might supply more water to the pad, but that did not help. Maybe the pad they supply is just too robust or is over-treated so that it will not soak up enough water, I don't know. But, I do know that this unit does not do much of anything but make noise. Even on low it is a louder than it ought to be. I should add that is is in a small bedroom maybe 12 x 10.
I decided to return this and purchase a Vicks model V3100 1.0 Gallon Cool Mist Humidifier. Now that model works as you would expect a small room humidifier to work, and on low it just whispers. The Vicks is a much better choice for a small room.Get more detail about Duracraft DCM-200 2-Gallon Cool Moisture Humidifier.
