Whisper quiet. – DBroth’s Ivation Digital Humidifier w/LCD Control Panel.



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.

They’ve come a long way! – BLM Products’ Garibaldi Heating 35″ Curved Electric Wall Mounted Fireplace.


When I was young, my Grandmother had an electric fireplace in her living room. She brought it out around the holidays, and we loved it. I am so amazed how far these have come. This fireplace is not only aesthetically pleasing year round, but in the colder months, can actually heat a room up to 300 square ft. in size. This is a Garibaldi heating fireplace from BLM Products’ on Amazon. It is 35” in length, and has a very pretty curved design to it. It has an elegant curve, which I really, really love. The heat comes out of the vents on the top of the unit only, which makes it easy to choose your placement for it. I also love the easy mounting design it has. It comes with a mounting plate which you attach to the wall, and then the fireplace attaches to the plate. They even include all the hardware, including the anchors. This fan is equipped with a regular 3 prong plug too, so you will not need a special outlet to operate it. There is no special set up or programming to do upon arrival. It’s a plug and play type of unit. Yes, it comes with a remote, and as we all know, remotes make everything better. I was, however, surprised at this price point, that they do not include the batteries for the remote. It requires 2 AAA batteries. No tool is needed to access the battery compartment. The fireplace is really responsive to the remote as well. The remote has one feature that I really appreciate. It has a hole on the back of it, so you can hang it near your fireplace. But, just in case you lose it, you can fully operate this fireplace manually as well. If you are facing the front of the fireplace screen, the control panel is on the right side. The buttons are clearly labeled as well. Some of the nice features this fireplace has, are:

1.       Heat on demand.

2.       Can run the fireplace separately from the heat feature, for year round use.

3.       Dimmable flames.

4.       Timer settings from ½ an hour to 7 ½ hours.

5.       Quick mounting ability.

6.       5,000 BTUs at 1500 watts.

7.       Whisper quiet functioning.

8.       Remote Control

9.       The front panel never gets hot to the touch.

I can’t wait for the holidays. We do not have a traditional fireplace, and a fireplace really makes the holidays special to us. It doesn’t stick out far from the wall either, so even if you have a smaller room, you can still hang it in there. It only sticks out approx. 5”. It does need 24” of clearance above it, in case want to hang your TV above it. The fireplace alone setting makes no noise at all. When you have the heater on, you can hear the blower, but it is pretty quiet, nd does not affect your TV watching or conversation. I really like that. It also truly doe not get hot to the touch on the front panel, which is great if you have little ones or pets. My fireplace has been functioning flawlessly. I am really happy about that. It was also designed here in the U.S., which is awesome.
