The Crane Drop Shape Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier
Perfect for a bedroom or perhaps a small den, this humidifier covers 250 square feet, adding moisture to dry air in this space perfectly. Moist air makes it easier to breathe, especially when you have a cough or cold, and it even helps battle dry skin and chapped lips. In addition to your personal comfort, humidifiers add moisture that reduces static electricity, peeling wallpaper and cracks in paint. Babies and even adults can benefit from humidifying air in addition to or instead of over the counter cough and cold remedies as moist air makes it easier to breathe when you are congested.
The humidifier will run 24 hours on its medium setting and puts out a little over 2 gallons of moisture in the air. A swivel nozzle on top lets you direct the moist air wherever you choose. It is energy efficient, using less power than a light bulb. The operation is quiet. On the medium setting, you barely notice it. When you do, it is a soothing white-noise, something similar to the noise a fish tank filter makes. You won’t be bothered with the “roaring” that you may remember of older style humidifiers.
The Crane Drop Shape Cool Mist Humidifier has a safety feature that shuts the unit off automatically when the water tank is empty, making its operation worry-free. A light remains on, letting you know that the unit is still powered on, but the actual humidifier function shuts down. Operation of the unit is easy. You just unscrew the tap and fill the tank with tap water. Replace the cap and place the unit on an elevated surface while in use. The unit should be set on a water-safe surface and should not be set on a towel or carpet. It should be at least three feet off the ground for best results.
The unit will run without a filter, but it is recommended that you either use the optional filter or use distilled or filtered water if you have a lot of minerals in your tap water. If you see white dust near your humidifier, this indicates that there are minerals in the water and that you should either use the filter or distilled water.
Cleaning the unit is simple and involves changing the water daily and then disinfecting the tank weekly with a white vinegar and water mixture or chlorine bleach and water mixture. There is an optional descaler product available if you’d rather use that.
The unit does not have a UV light or silver ion exchange, so cleaning the unit by following the recommended procedures is important to keep your unit bacteria-free. One should, of course, clean the units with the additional anti-bacterial protection as well, but it is worth mentioning since this unit does not have that added layer of protection.
