I live in Florida which you may or may not know is the humidity capitol of the world, or at least it seems so sometimes. So when summer weather hit a few weeks ago I knew i needed to get a new humidifier. After doing some research I found a lot of good things being said about Comfort Aire brand, and decided to look into them. After doing some digging I found this pint sized model and decided that would work fine in the bedroom. So I bought one. Setting it up and installing it for use was a breeze, my guess would be that it was out of the box and working within ten minutes. It didn't take that long to get used to it, since there is very little sound coming from the unit. The water pan is a little weird, but nothing too out of the norm. It took a couple of times to get used to the awkwardness of it, but within a couple of days it was like second nature to me. The unit itself is very sturdily made, and easy to clean- both very important things to me. So those were both biggies to me. I would definately recommend this anyone looking for a smaller dehumidifier unit. It wouldn't work for a larger space, but it a bedroom, laundry room or even a office it would work wonders, and it is well worth the price.
