I have used dehumidifiers on and off, but rarely do a use a plain humidifier. They are good to have though when the air gets too dry. Though, when I thought about it, I actually use a humidifier all of the time, lol. I use essential oil diffusers, and they place humidity (water) into the air along with essential oils. This humidifier from Ivation is an electronic humidifier, and you can actually choose between heated and non-heated. I used essential oils in this unit when on the non-heated setting. I really enjoy using my essential oil diffusers too. I think it’s so funny that I never tied the two things together. This one unit is working flawlessly. It is so quiet on; you may forget that it is even on. If it wasn’t for the viewable mist and digital screen that is. The screen is very clear, and easy to spot and read. If not using this tabletop, you do have to either lift it up to set it up, or get down on the floor with the it. The screen is on the bottom of the unit. A remote would have been the perfect touch for people who are physically challenged. If you cycle through the settings, you can choose sleep, turbo, Auto, and the Normal. It automatically turns on the heat in each mode, so wait a sec and then hit the heat symbol, and that will turn off the heat. It’s so easy to fill. The top lifts right off, nothing to undo. Then yhe water tank has a large handle. Just lift it up and bring it over to the sink. The cap is large, and easy to grasp, to open it. The sleep mode sets for 8 hours, then shuts off. This unit has auto shut off too, when the water runs out. Turbo and Auto Modes have no timer built into them. Normal does not either, but you can set your own humidity level and timer. I prefer to and pretty much only use the normal mode. The instruction booklet is really clear to read and understand. I wish the ink had been printed darker though. It was done in a really light ink color. You can set the timer from anywhere from 1 – 8 hours. Press the settings button twice, and then use the +/- signs to set your time. On the bottom back of the unit is an aroma compartment. It’s a teeny tray that pulls out and has a thick felt pad in it. You can place essential oils on this pad as you wish. I didn’t get that much from that compartment, and snuck my oils into the water, lol, on the cool mist only. You need to remember to dump out all of the water daily, so no mold or mildew builds. If you aren’t refilling it, dump it out, and let the container air dry before closing it up. The booklet tells you how to clean It thoroughly too. It’s a very stable unit and don’t have to worry about it being easily tipped over. Overall, I am very happy with how it functions. I like the large tank, for all day use. You can direct the stream of humidity since the nozzle can easily be positioned. I am really happy with this unit.
