I bought this humidifier to use in the winter to keep my room warm and moist. It works great! I keep my heat on very low and just use this at night and it has kept my energy costs low. It lasts throught the whole night on one fill and is very quiet. I highly recommend!

Holmes Warm Mist Humidifier kept us comfy all winter!
I have nothing but recommendations and happy thoughts about the Homes Warm Mist Humidifier. My husband and I recieved this for a wedding gift last fall and we couldnt be happier. We live in Kansas with very dry winters and this kept us feeling warm and breathing easy through the cold and dry winter nights.
I bought this humidifier at a tremendous discount and after reading the reviews online, I almost returned it. However, I am pleased so far. True, it is a pot of water with a fan on top, but the water gets soaked into the filter and the fan draws the moisture out of the filter into the air without creating a wet spot in front of the humidifier. You don't actually see mist coming out. But the moisture is there as my skin is a lot less dry after using it for just a few days. On the other hand, I don't think I would have paid top dollar for it, as it a very simple device. It's does make a rather loud noise, but no more than the electric fan I run constantly. The owner's guide recommends replacing the filter once a month, but I use filtered water in it so won't have to do this quite so often.
This is an evaporative humidifier, so it's quite literally a bucket with an electric fan on top. It seemed to be working, because it was evaporating the water in the basin --- and presumably into the air of the room --- but I didn't really feel the effects. Not at all worth the price, in my opinion.
I was very excited to find a humidifier that was EASY to clean, most get gross inside and cannot be taken apart for cleaning. The price was very reasonable also. Brought it home, was surprised at how large it is since it is meant for a small room. It has a low and high speed, the low speed did not work. Used high speed and found it very loud. After 20 minutes of use it stopped working all together. This is the 3rd Holmes brand humidifier I have owned and I will not purchase another.
