About this product


Product overview

This 5 litre digital humidifier uses an ultrasonic high-frequency oscillator to turn water from the tank into tiny particles. By doing this, it restores the relative humidity levels, particularly in rooms where air conditioning or central heating has made the air overly dry. The benefits of correct air humidity are wide ranging and can alleviate a number of health problems including dry eyes, sinus problems, sore throats and dry mouth.

The digital display offers a variety of humidifying functions and the in-built timer and preset capability ensure that your home is always set to your preferred level of humidity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great unit Does the job well _ I was going to buy a humidity gauge so that I could assess the dry air situation in my home. ( I tend to have sinus problems made worse by the central heating ). For a bit more money I got this fantastic bit of kit that does it all !! Very quiet and huge tank .. I could go on and on but for the money you can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what is required. Brilliant this machine is fantastic my 3 year old suffered from croup that is drying of the throat which makes him cough terribly. What sets this apart from the other machines available is the control. Many other machines on the market have a dial, plus and minus not accurate when it comes to something so precious as a child. After loads of reaserch I found I needed 50 to 55% RH to help his condition. I filled it up with water and plugged it in, it immediately told me the room was 25%. I set the machine to 55% it started working until the 55% was achieved then it cut off. My little boy has slept so well since buying this helped his health and no coughing. this machine is a little bit more than the other ones with a dial but the digital control in worth every penny. Iv never written a review before but for any parents in same position as me it's worth every penny and more. From waking up coughing fits every few hours, he sleeps 12 hours straight through. Best thing Iv bought in years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I bought this unit to increase humidity in one of my rooms. It has numerous features and works very well and is pretty much silent in operation. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it claims Brought it to keep up the humidity in a room where I keep a gram Piano. I find I do not need it in the summer, but the central heating dries the room out in winter. It works as described. Perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well! This device does what it says on the box! Really well! My only criticism is the poor manual that comes with it. There is no clear information about the main control on the front or explicit diagram or photo

Hi, Couple of questions...... 1. what is size of humidifier, are measurements in inches, cm, mm? 2. We have an open plan office so would need more than 1 humidifier, what are maximum room dimensions in which you would expect 1 humidifier to operate well

Asked by: Steve
It measures 13" x 9-1/2" x 6-3/4" We can not advise on the maximum room size for this item.
