Rated 3 out of 5Â by Fairandsquare Didn't like the white dust
Even though I soaked the cartridge for more then 24 hours, I still had white dust made out of minerals from the water. I have pets and don't need more dust!! This would have been a great humidifier, had it not been for this problem. I called Air-O-Swiss customer service and the gentleman was very nice and he informed me that the water in my area is hard and therefore I can't avoid the white dust, unless I use distilled water without the cartridge inside that tank. I can't see myself buying water after I paid this much for the machine itself. Disappointed.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by RGPRN I'm very pleased with the AIR-O-Swiss features
I read many reviews on several different humidifiers before deciding to purchase the AIR-O-SWISS. I have severe chronic dry eyes and my husband suffers with nasal and sinus issues. I have only had this product a couple of weeks but so far I'm very pleased. It is totally silent, which I love. It puts out a wonderful mist. I like the fact that you can control the amount of and direction the mist flows. There are a few other feature that are nice but those are the most important to me. The only negative I see is it can be a little messy to refill each day.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Atthebeachnow Quiet and Efficent..Love It!
Yes, it's pricey. But I have researched lots of humidifiers and found this one is super. It is very quiet and adds good amount of moisture in my living room. I have not seen any white dust particles and I have had it running for cool mist for two months. One con is the tank needs filling daily but it's pretty straightforward. I like the feature that lets me adjust the direction of the vapor and it shuts off. You can choose the amout of moisture as well as the direction. It seems pretty rugged and hopefully will last a long while. No complaints.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by BigFi5h The Warm Mist never got warm!
I used this product for a couple of weeks. It does give out a good amount of humidity. However, when I tried to use the Warm setting, the mist was never warm. It was always cool or cold. Also, there was a lot of sediment being deposited all over the furniture. I know our water is hard but I had the filter in it, and installed it according to the instructions. I would have thought that would have been sufficient, especially since I only used it a couple of weeks. It also gave a weird smell that I do not experience with the less expensive vaporizers. And as others have mentioned, filling and inserting the water container is kind of difficult. But I could have put up with that if the humidifier had worked better. It is a nice looking machine though. I did end up returning this item to Kohls. I had no problems with the refund.
