Air humidifier becomes an essential tool for various reasons. During winter, having a heater may cause the air to get under-humidified. It may get similar to a desert-like air condition. This can cause various issues. Another reason for humidifiers is if you have infants at home. They need exposure to germ-free air at all times. Cracked lips are another sign of an under-humidified environment.
To help our audience stay healthy and choose the right air humidifier for their home, we have done extensive research and spend countless hours choosing the right fit for most people. We have written a review on the Honeywell HCM350W Germ-Free Cool Mist Humidifier. As of making this review, this product has an eye-catching 11,000+ ratings, out of which 69% are 5-Stars. It is currently one of the best air humidifiers you can get for under $200. In case you are interested in full body massage, consider looking into RelaxOnChair MK-Classic.
The design won’t impress anyone. Not even a child. But such products are not purchased based on design. Rather, performance and usability are what matters the most. It is a fairly bulky looking product with a very simple curved rectangular design. The total unit size measures in at 11.4” height, 9.3” Width, and 17.9” depth.
The large 1-gallon tank is really appreciated but does add to its ugliness. This makes its overall footprint larger. This product isn’t battery operated, which is both a good and bag thing. The positive side is that you don’t need to panic about charging it often. The bad thing is that this machine isn’t portable. As it has to stay wired, you will need to keep it near a wall outlet.
We have the white version of this product and also recommend buyers to purchase the white one. That’s because it blends in better with the other house appliances better than the black one. There’s one thing that we really like about the design of the HCM350W, which is that its tank is not very much visible. Unless you look from the top, you will assume it is just a part of the design. This is great because people won’t be able to see any molds building inside the tanks or any remaining water droplets. This will surely save you from some potential embarrassments.back to menu ↑
This is where the HCM350W shines the most. It does cost a bit more than some other models but performs significantly better. We have tested multiple brands and this one surpasses all in the performance part.
When it is being used, you will definitely feel changes in your throat and sinuses. This humidifier can accommodate larger rooms fairly easily. It is sufficient enough to kill 99.9% of bacteria while releasing the waters. Although we can’t test if it’s scientifically correct or not, the company is well trusted and has been making this product for quite some time. Over the years it did prove to be useful and we would believe in their claim for the removal of bacteria.
This product can run for straight 24 hours. Technically you can leave it on for days, but the filter will only last up to 24 hours until refilled again. The HCM350W does make some noise, but that didn’t seem to bother much. You can leave it away from your bed and can have a peaceful sleep. Unlike some other models, it doesn’t illuminate light that will disrupt your sleep. This is very well thought by the designers of this product and is well appreciated by most users.back to menu ↑
The Honeywell HCM350W again scores high in terms of maintenance. It is easy to take apart the major components that need cleaning. Such as the tank comes off easily. Also, it can stand on its own. Maybe not a major advantage, but is appreciated. It ensures you don’t need to hold the tank while it is filling. The opening of the tank is also quite large. It is big enough to insert your hand inside and clean thoroughly. This is not the case with many other models. You will simply need to use tools to get into those.
The tray and water tank are both dishwasher-friendly and is quite easy to get cleaned. The whole unit gets a bit heavy after filling in the tank. This makes it a bit harder to move around, but you probably wouldn’t be positioning it here and there often. So that’s not a big issue. Simply place it at a set position and while cleaning, just remove the tank and the tray. For the fan, you can use pressurized air to get the dust off. We feel instead of a brush, using compressed air gives a better result. Cleaning the outer surface isn’t a big issue either. As it is mostly a smooth flat surface, you can simply use a wet cloth to clean it.back to menu ↑
