I think that Holmes is the best company from which to buy a humidifier. I had purchased another one from this company at one point and I was really happy with. I bought this one for my bedroom when I moved into a larger home and my old one could no longer keep up with the space. This humidifier is very quiet and well worth every penny that I spent on it. It keeps the room perfectly moisturized, especially during the winter months when I sometimes get nosebleeds due to the dryness in the air. I do not have to use it as much in the summer because Florida gets very humid during those months. I like the settings for this product because I can choose how humid I want the room to be. I like how it looks too. It has to be sitting out, so it can be seen if anyone goes in my room, but I think it fits in and does not look bad. I would recommend this product for anyone with issues with nosebleeds when the air is very dry. This humidifier is tops!
