AIRCARE® 13 GallonIf, like I was, you are looking for a whole house humidifier with a high output rate, you will be more than happy with the AIRCARE® 13 Gallon Evaporative Console Humidifier. This is a high-end unit that looks great, and will help alleviate the problems that are frequently caused by dry air.

Having dry air in your home can be problematic for many people. It leads to many problems with dry skin, allergies and can exacerbate the symptoms of colds and flus during winter time. For this reason many people choose to buy a humidifier for their home, since humidifiers balance out the level of humidity in the air by taking in untreated air, adding moisture to it, and pushing it back out into the room using a fan. Most humidifiers you’ll find on the market are small and will help humidify smaller living spaces such as a bedroom, but this humidifier, being a whole house humidifier, is specifically designed to humidify large areas.

The Basics
The AIRCARE® 13 Gallon Evaporative Console Humidifier is a beautifully designed humidifier that will look great in your home. It is extremely easy to use thanks to a digital touch screen that will help you adjust your console, or simply choose an automatic setting that will humidify your home to the best level.

Being an evaporative humidifier, it works by passing untreated air through a saturated wick filter. This wick filter is made out of anti-microbial treated paper, which means it resists mildew and mold. The minerals therefore stay on the filter and are not passed into the air, meaning the air is pure and perfectly fine to breathe. The filter will need changing annually and the humidifier itself requires a fairly regular clean, but this isn’t an arduous process and can be expected with almost all humidifiers.

The AIRCARE® 13 Gallon Evaporative Console Humidifier can humidify areas up to 2700 square feet. It has a total capacity of 5.5 gallons of water, and can output 13 gallons of mist per day. That’s a powerful machine. It has an automatic humidistat which maintains your desired humidity level, and a variable 9 speed motor so you can adjust the output according to your requirements. The unit also has an auto off function which is great if you want to leave it running while you sleep as the machine won’t become damaged as it tries to process an empty tank.

The Verdict
This is certainly not the cheapest humidifier on the market but I was looking for one that I would not need to maintain so often, and one I thought would last me a while. I also wanted one that I felt would comfortably humidify my entire home, and with its 2700 square feet range, the AIRCARE® 13 Gallon Evaporative Console Humidifier is perfectly capable of this.

With its brushed nickel finish and slick design I have found it a great attribute to my home, and have also found the air my family and I are now breathing to be much healthier and soothing.
