#HomeTips Twitter Party Alert with Evette Rios: Honeywell Humidifiers and Home Products

Winters can be brutal on the skin.  Combating cold outside and dry heat inside the whole can wreak havoc on one’s dermis.  Not to mention rising heating and electricity costs can throw in additional challenges to adequately taking care of your home and self.  Honeywell’s got you covered with tons of amazing home products to suit your every need.  Our family have been avid consumers of Honeywell products for years.  They are affordable and energy efficient helping you only in the areas you need.  We love everything from our home thermostat to our portable heaters and more recently this year we’ve introduced Honeywell’s line of humidifiers to our home.

My husband thinks I’m silly for loving them so much.  In previous years we had invested in expensive ultrasonic humidifiers, often spending upwards of $300 for one.  Maintenance did not come cheap either with replacement parts and cleaners costing up to $70 and needing to be done monthly.  It suffices to say, monthly maintenance was not a priority at that price.

When I stumbled upon the Honeywell Easy to Care Cool Mist Humidifier HUT-200 at my neighborhood Target, it was love at first sight.  I couldn’t believe what I was reading on the box!  Easy to Fill – just like watering a plant, Easy to clean - wipe-able parts and dishwasher safe too with no filter parts! and Easy to Use – multiple settings and lasts for 24 hours on one fill.  This was the answer to all my peeves about our expensive ultrasonic humidifiers!  The biggest WOW factor was the price – a SRP of $54.99 a far cry from my $300+ one.  As our $300+ humidifier was showing signs of being on its last leg, this seemed like a small investment worth giving a try.

PROS

  • Easy to fill – just like watering a plant
  • Easy to clean – parts separate easy and can be wiped down or placed in the dishwasher rack, everything including the pump and hose too
  • Runs for 24+ hours on a single fill
  • Love the visual misting that actually spreads mist upwards and not only in the immediate surround area of the humidifier
  • The price – $54.99 is so worth it!

CONS

  • NONE that we could find

Since the purchase of the Honeywell Easy to Care Cool Mist Humidifier HUT-200 we have also added the Honeywell Easy to Care Cool Mist Humidifier HCM-750 to our home repertoire for larger room coverage.  This is a self regulating humidifier which doesn’t have the visible misting that my husband, a more visual person, loves but it essentially works the same way as the HUT-200.  Same easy to fill, easy to use and easy to clean functions.

  • Easy to fill – just like watering a plant
  • Easy to clean – parts separate easy and can be wiped down or placed in the dishwasher rack, everything including the pump and hose too
  • Runs for 48+ hours on a single fill

CONS

  • self-regulating at 32-35% humidity, despite the 3 settings, we haven’t seen a noticeable difference in moisture between the settings.
  • it is not a quiet humidifier, although I do not mind the waterfall sound, it may irritate some who want a quieter humidifier.
  • does require a wicking filter that should be replaced every 1-2 months depending on mineral and air impurity content
