It’s the time of year now where our monsoon season has dissipated and things are drying out. I live in a very dry area. It’s not the desert like Phoenix, but the Ponderosa pines of Flagstaff Arizona gets pretty dry and with the bitter coldness that fall and winter can bring, I usually have dry cracked skin, lips and often all four of us are plagued with bloody noses due to the dry air. So I break out the humidifiers during cold and flu season knowing that my kids should be able to breathe a little easier at night. I have a humidifier next to each child’s bed, but my husband and I didn’t have one until recently!
We came across the Luma Comfort HC12W Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier and from first look, you wouldn’t even know it was a humidifier! It looks like an ultra sleek and modern floor decoration that goes perfectly in the corner of a room. And I’ve placed this on my side of the bed since my husband has the big unattractive box fan on his side of the bed. For pictures though, I decided to put it in our family room because it has the most natural light. This beautiful humidifier can be adjusted to different heights to compliment any room you have it in.
This is how you fill the humidifier:
It’s best to fill it in your tub because of how long the tank is.
To fill it, remove the demineralization cartridge, which is also the chamber the water goes into.
Putting the humidifier together and using it took no time at all. I’m not even sure I looked at instructions for most of it and you don’t need any tools to assemble it. But one thing I found, filling the tank can’t be done in a typical sink. It’s best to fill it in your bathtub because of how long it is. It just doesn’t fit under your faucet. I don’t find it difficult at all to use the tub instead.
Here’s a quick video:
The great thing about this humidifier is you only need to fill the 1.18 gallon tank every two days if you only use it at night.
When I pulled it out of the box I was expecting to see a filter that you would change out every so often. I didn’t see one, so I didn’t understand at first how the humidifier is kept clean, so only clean mist is pumped out every time. This humidifier has a demineralizing cartridge in it that keeps calcium and lime build up away, and thus no yucky filter to change. Another awesome feature is the remote! How often do you get in bed and forget to turn something on or off? If this is on your night stand, you can turn the humidifier on and off via the remote and it has up to 8 different speeds, although I think I only really recognize four. When the water tank is low or empty the blue light turns into a red light indicating you need to refill the tank.
How do I rank the Luma Comfort Humidifier compared to other humidifiers in my home?
Lets first start with the dislikes:
Dislikes or Concerns:
1. Last night I had the humidifier on and too close to my nightstand and there was a layer of water that had accumulated on the table right where my smart phone was. Thankfully there was no damage to the phone, but my warning is to be careful in having it too close to a surface where the mist could settle.
2. The tank can be a little awkward to hold with water in it. Make sure when filling it up, you have a towel nearby to wipe away the water droplets so you don’t drip water on your floor or carpet when putting it back on the base.
1. For design and making something that often looks like an eye sore in a room (like my husband’s box fan) into something pretty.
2. It has a remote, none of my other humidifiers have this feature.
3. I don’t have to look at a yucky carbon filter and wonder is it dirty enough that I have to change it or do I have a bit more time.
4. I like the different mist settings. Most humidifiers have on/off and high/low settings.
5. It’s quiet! I hardly hear this thing when it’s on compared to the two I have running in the kids’ room.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars!
