There are quite a lot of people out there who, for some reason, like to live in certain areas with an increased level of humidity. And that's exactly the reason why the people over at Hammacher Schlemmer came up back in the second half of 2007 with the Whole-House Humidifier, a device that can provide a large amount of humidity, spread on a very wide area, so that everyone could experience the benefits of humidity, no matter where their homes or offices are located.
Eliminating the need for multiple humidifiers, this device humidifies up to 2,700 square feet (250 square meters) and emits up to 13 gallons (49.21 liters) of invisible air moisture per day, providing comfortable air humidity throughout an entire home.
About the size of an end table, the humidifier has an easy-to-read digital control panel that allows rapid selection of humidity levels, while the integrated hygrometer accurately measures room humidity and the humidistat automatically maintains the selected humidity.
The unit has a low setting for whisper-quiet nighttime use, and a two-stage air filter removes airborne particulates and eliminates odors. It also features casters for ease of maneuverability and two LEDs that illuminate when the dual water reservoirs require refilling.
The device from Hammacher Schlemmer occupies quite a bit of space around the home, as it measures around 71.12 cm x 35.56 cm x 57.15 cm (28 inches x 14 inches x 22.5 inches), at a weight of around 12.7 kilos (28 pounds), but it may prove to be worth it though.
The Whole-House Humidifier retails for around 250 US dollars, which is quite a good price to pay for this device, taking into consideration the very high output of moisture it can provide.
