I originally purchased my humidifier because I was looking for something to drown out the bark from the neighbors dogs while I was sleeping. I did not want a fan because I have a small bedroom and it seemed to give me sinus problems. A humidifier puts cool, moist and filtered air back into a room which is beneficial to your skin and sinuses.
What attracted me to this humidifer is that it has a permawick filter which means it never has to be changed. I had a humidifier before that needed to have filters replaced about once a month. The filters were about $4.00 a piece which is kind of expensive just for maintenance of a humidifier. The Hunter humidifier is atleast $20.00 more than the basic brand but it will save you money in the long run.
This humidifier has 3 different settings so if you do not like alot of noise then you can just turn it down on low. It holds 2 gallons of water. Another thing I like about the humidifier is that the container that holds the water is dishwasher safe.
