The Honeywell HWM 950 Humidifier

28 Mar Posted in Reviews
These days people need reliable appliances that don’t involve putting too much effort into using them. The Honeywell HWM 950 humidifier is an item that can provide the moisture that a home needs without requiring special care. Furthermore, it does not incorporate a filter, so its owner doesn’t have to worry about cleaning any type of mess. However, this unit features a heating element that needs to be cleaned constantly. The Honeywell HWM 950 is perfect for people who live in a cold climate because it can help them control their home’s air moisture levels very easy. Its QuickSteam Warm Moisture System heats and purifies the water, so if you have problems with your dry air, you can use this device to get rid of congestion, cough, allergies, breathing problems and wheezing.

However, it involves a high risk of fire if it is not well taken care of. Since this device provides warm mist, it actually boils the water, so it should not be left running if you leave your house. It’s true that it incorporates an automatic shut off function that allows it to stop when it runs out of water, but if that fails, the heating element can cause a fire. The hot element can also cause burns if touched. Therefore, this machine must be placed somewhere where small children don’t have access. The Honeywell HWM 950 is therapeutic because it comes with a medicine cup for liquid inhalants, so medication can be evaporated with the steam heat that it releases. Moreover, the mist passes by the medicine cup that you can fill with inhalants to relieve dry air symptoms. It is also very easy to clean, especially because there aren’t any filters to change. It features a wide top which means that you can easily fill it from above. So, although it has a small tank that only holds 0.7 gallons of water, refilling it won’t seem such a difficult task, and it is ideal for use in rooms up to 500 square feet. Nevertheless, in case you want a humidifier that uses the same technology but designed for larger rooms, you can opt for the Vicks 1.5 Gallon Vaporizer with Night-Light, which is an excellent choice. As found in the Vicks review, the device is ideal for rooms up to 1000-1200 sq. ft., having the capacity and the mist output of 1.5 gallons.  The Honeywell HWM 950 has two moisture output settings featured by the EasySet, a high and a low output. So, you can adjust the quantity of mist that the device can dispense. Furthermore, the Refill Light function allows you to see when water needs to be added into the tank, so it doesn’t matter that the tank is made from dark plastic and you can’t see when it needs a refill. The Honeywell humidifier has a stylish design…

VERY GOOD

Although this device incorporates an automatic shut off function that allows it to stop when it runs out of water, that can fail, and the heating element that provides warm mist can cause a fire. So, this unit can perform great as long as you don’t leave it unmonitored.
