The Vicks warm mist humidifier has a standard appearance which is not very elegant. It is made of plastic and will definitely not fit in with your décor of a room. Monitoring the water level is real simple with the transparent tank. The flimsy plastic does not appear to be classy and the overall design appearance will not impress.
Carrying and handling the humidifier is made easy by the conveniently placed handles. This humidifier is the 'silent type', making it a lot quieter than the cool mist variant. This device makes soft gurgling sounds, as though you have an aquarium in the room. The low setting is almost at whisper sound level, making it soothing and unobtrusive.
The two speed levels offer you the options of low and high. There is also an auto shut off option. As soon as your device runs out of water, it will automatically shut down. This will radically reduce any chance of burnout or damage to your device. If you run the humidifier on the low setting you will find that the gallon tank lasts for up to twenty four hours.
The medicine cup filled with inhaler liquid will help medicate and soothe skin, noses and dry throats as it releases moisture into the air. When it is used in a small room, the mist plume becomes visible and it also creates a difference in the temperature.
This humidifier does not heat up, which makes it safe for children and adults to handle. This eliminates any chance of burn injury to individuals. If you use tap water you may have to clean more frequently, because it contains minerals. For this reason it is better to use distilled water.TOP
