C reating a safe home environment for your family means more than providing clean air with the help of an air purifier. Although this is necessary, other factors can influence their well-being and health, and one of the most common problems is dryness. If the air lacks moisture, breathing and skin problems won’t take long to show up.

In these situations, the solution is simple and consists of finding the best whole house humidifier. It is a serious investment, but overall, one of these units will prove more efficient than running a cheaper model in every room of your house. Moreover, we have prepared for you a very detailed buying guide that will help you distinguish between the best models on the market and make an educated choice, so stay with us while we explain the pros and cons of every unit.

7. Vornado Evap40 – Best for Hard Water

Check Price


Specifications:


  • Type: Evaporative
  • Fill Type: 4-gallon water tank
  • Area Coverage: 1,000 sq.ft.
  • Moisture Output Rate: 4 gallons/day
  • Fan Speeds: 3
  • Run Time: 24 hours
  • Digital Humidistat:

  • Noise Level: 31 – 53 dB
  • Digital Display:
  • Auto Shut-Off:
  • Outdoor Temperature Monitor:
  • Wicking Filter: 2 filters
  • Rated Power: 16 – 39W
  • Warranty: 5-year


Compared with all the other models in our top, this one has the smallest area coverage and was designed to provide excellent humidification in small flats, large rooms or workspaces that can extend up to 1,000 square feet. It is not a fancy machine. It doesn’t feature high-end digital controls, a digital temperature sensor or an LCD screen. Everything is adjusted manually with the help of two knobs. And this is ok because it was designed to be performant but affordable. The plastic case is very solid and well-sealed, so it won’t leave puddles on your floors. The generous water tanks, which have a total capacity of 4 gallons, are placed on the laterals and are built of thin but durable plastic that allows you to monitor the level of water inside. Besides that, they are very easy to remove when it comes to refilling or cleaning.

It uses a fan to spread moisture around the house, and the big surprise is that it includes a humidistat, which measures the humidity level and makes adjustments in fan speed. Three speed options are available and will engage the fan as follows: low speed – 750 RPM, medium speed – 1,150 RPM, and high speed – 1,600 RPM. As can be seen, it is very powerful and will produce a strong airflow, especially if used in a more restrained and closed space. Plus, all Vornado fans are equipped with deep-pitched blades that can pull more air than the average.

Before being released into the room, the moist air goes through 2 wicking filters, mounted inside each water recipient. The purpose is to capture mineral residues that are usually found in tap water. The wicks have a lifespan of 1 to 2 months, therefore rather low but, another good news is they aren’t very expensive and you can considerably extend their life if you use distilled water. You will save money on energy as well, as it has a maximum power consumption rate of only 39 watts. Not to mention that if you use it at the lowest speed the energy it draws will not go higher than 16 watts.

What we like:
  • Straightforward design makes it easy to operate
  • Fan speed can be adjusted according to room size
  • Intelligent humidity monitoring
  • Large capacity
  • Quiet operations
  • Long 5-year warranty
What we dislike:

✖ Humidity cannot be accurately set or monitored, as it doesn’t feature digital controls or an LCD screen

✖ It is bulky

Verdict

It is a budget option that is very popular among buyers. They appreciate its large water capacity and excellent 4 gallons/day moisture output that can perfectly cover a large room or a small apartment. Plus, it is very easy to operate, with a straightforward design that includes only a knob for humidity control, one for fan speed adjustment, and a power button.


6. AIRCARE EP9 800 – Best for Apartments

Check Price


Specifications:


  • Type: Evaporative
  • Fill Type: 3.5 gallons water tank
  • Area Coverage: 2,400 sq.ft.
  • Moisture Output Rate: 9 gallons/day
  • Fan Speeds: 9
  • Run Time: 60 hours
  • Digital Humidistat:

  • Noise Level: 58 – 70 dB
  • Digital Display:
  • Auto Shut-Off:
  • Outdoor Temperature Monitor:
  • Wicking Filter:
  • Rated Power: 70W
  • Warranty: 2-year


Although it is a large unit, its pedestal shape makes it easy to fit in every house, as in most cases it improves the looks of the room instead of ruining them. At 27 pounds, it is rather lightweight, considering its size, therefore easy to maneuver and reposition. The access to the water reservoir is made through the front side, and you won’t even have to remove it, as this unit is provided with a fill door. Nevertheless, the bottom can be detached for easy periodical cleaning. It uses a wicking filter to capture minerals in the water and prevent them to spread around the room and settle on the furniture as fine white dust.

Regarding the sound, it isn’t the quietest on the market, especially if you decide to run it on the highest speed where it reaches a peak level of 78 decibels. Even on the lowest speed, it is still louder than other models, as it was rated for 58 decibels. However, it was designed for large spaces with a surface of up to 2,400 square feet, so you can find it a more secluded spot from which it won’t disturb your peace. The fan is very powerful and features 9 speeds that will provide great airflow, spreading the moisture around the entire house. Plus, the water output is high as well, with a rate of 9 gallons per day, which means that it can be used in hot and arid areas as well.

The water reservoir has a capacity of 3.5 gallons and can last for a maximum of 60 hours if you select the lowest output setting. But if you set it to deliver moisture at its maximum capacity, you might have to refill it several times a day. The good news is that it doesn’t draw lots of energy. As a matter of fact, with a peak of 70 watts, we can call it energy-efficient. Plus, it comes with a digital humidistat, so you can select the auto mode and let it determine when the fan speed should be increased or decreased. In most cases, this is an economic solution for all-day run, but if the air is particularly dry in your house, you may want to keep an eye on the LCD monitor and check its activity or you may end up paying more than you wish.

The digital controls and humidistat ensure accurate readouts and allow you to set exact parameters. Nothing is left to chance, and you can rest assured that it will keep dryness away and maintain the level of humidity set by you. Moreover, in case any malfunction should occur, you can call out the manufacturer to fix it for a period of 2 years from the day of purchase.

What we like:
  • Classical design makes it a great fit for every house
  • Excellent moisture output
  • 9 speeds allow for accurate adjustments
  • Digital humidistat shuts it down when the desired humidity has been reached
  • Easy to refill due to the front fill door
  • LCD monitor displays humidity and temperature for easy monitoring
What we dislike:

✖ Rather loud

✖ Some customers complained that the indicator lights are too bright

Verdict

It is a great choice for an apartment or for a small house where it can function both as a very performant humidifying machine and as a stand for your flowers, books or framed photos. The easy-fill design allows you to refill the water tank without moving the unit, but if you decide to make changes in your room décor, it won’t be difficult to lift and reposition.


5. Aprilaire 500 – Best Furnace Humidifier

Check Price


Specifications:


  • Type: By-pass flow-through
  • Fill Type: Water line
  • Area Coverage: 3,000 sq.ft.
  • Moisture Output Rate: 12 gallons/day
  • Fan Speeds: No fan
  • Run Time: Continuous
  • Digital Humidistat:

  • Noise Level: 0 dB
  • Digital Display:
  • Auto Shut-Off:
  • Outdoor Temperature Monitor:
  • Wicking Filter:
  • Rated Power: 15W
  • Warranty: 5-year


If you are looking for a convenient unit that is both easy to install and maintain all year round, then this one from Aprilaire is the best for you. It is very compact and easy to maneuver and comes with a built-in by-pass damper, which means that you won’t have to put too much effort into installing it. It includes a strong drainage system that flushes the mineral residues filtered by the wick to prevent deposits on the internal components. Thus, it prevents their performance and lifespan. Moreover, as it doesn’t use a fan, the only noise you will be hearing is the water passing through it and the noise the solenoid makes when it powers the system on and off.

Although it is a small device, it was designed for medium houses, with a surface of up to 3,000 square feet. The maximum moisture output it can deliver is 12 gallons per day, which is more than sufficient for the recommended surface. It connects directly to the hot water line, therefore all the hassle of checking on the water tank is removed. Nevertheless, it comes with an accurate digital humidistat and a temperature sensor that can connect to the furnace thermostat for precise temperature reading. Thus, it uses 2 parameters to adjust its run time, a feature that will help you save energy in the long run, although the energy consumption rate is already very low with a maximum value of only 15 watts.

The control panel is complex and but with an intuitive design. Here you will find a knob that regulates moisture output with simple indications that help you easily obtain less, normal or more humidification. A simple switch allows you to choose if it will run only when the furnace is on, or it can run independently. Furthermore, three useful indicator lights will let you know if the unit is working, if it has an issue that requires service, or if the water panel needs to be replaced. In the case service is required, you can rest assured that the manufacturer will provide it for free for 5 years from the day of purchase.

What we like:
  • Hassle-free set up and maintenance
  • Dual sensor technology provides accurate information
  • Doesn’t include a fan, therefore it is quieter and more energy-efficient
  • Provides lots of moisture if used in a medium-size house
  • Practical 5-year warranty
What we dislike:

✖ It does not recycle the water so it may get expensive to run it during the winter months

Verdict

It is very accurate due to the humidity and temperature sensors that allow it to save water and energy by running only when more air moisture is required. Apart from that, it is easy to install and maintain, with indicator lights that turn on any time a problem occurs. Plus, the manufacturer will supply parts and labor for 5 years, so we would say it is a very good deal.


4. GeneralAire 1000A – Best for Winter

Check Price


Specifications:


  • Type: Fan-powered flow-through
  • Fill Type: Water line
  • Area Coverage: 3,000 sq.ft.
  • Moisture Output Rate: 18 gallons/day
  • Fan Speeds: 1
  • Run Time: Continuous
  • Digital Humidistat:

  • Noise Level: Low
  • Digital Display:
  • Auto Shut-Off:
  • Outdoor Temperature Monitor:
  • Wicking Filter:
  • Rated Power: N/A
  • Warranty: 10-year


Just like the previous model, this works with your HAVC system and connects to a water line for continuous water feed. Although the installation manual says that you can attach it either to the cold or hot water line, the second option is the one you want to go with, as the hot water speeds up the evaporation process and you get to save energy. There is a noticeable difference between the two units, namely this one includes a built-in fan which will help spread moisture faster around the house. It has only one speed, which is quiet and perfect for all-day run.

It comes with 2 smart sensors, designed to analyze the environmental parameters and adjust its activity. The first one works with the humidistat, letting it know if the desired humidity has been reached and it may take a break or if it needs to work harder to bring moisture to the optimal level. The second sensor is what makes it a great choice for winter, as it constantly monitors the temperature outdoors, so the system can quickly adapt to the seasonal temperatures. Furthermore, it senses if the furnace is on and releases more humidity to combat the dryness of the air.

It will cover a medium-size house, measuring up to 3,000 square feet and can release up to 18 gallons of moisture within 24 hours. Regarding installation and maintenance, the first one is doable, if you have some experience or a practical mind. If not, calling a plumber would be wise. The maintenance is minimal as it doesn’t feature a water recipient that would have need emptying and cleaning. The only thing inside that needs to be replaced once or twice per season is the vapor pad, which was added to act as a barrier against the minerals in the water. Besides that, if any malfunction should occur, you can always call customer support, which is very responsive and friendly or ask the manufacturer to repair your unit, as you get an excellent 10-year warranty.

What we like:
  • Outdoors sensor provides accurate information about the weather so the unit can adjust its run
  • Hassle-free maintenance
  • Generous warranty
  • Silent fan
  • Low energy consumption
What we dislike:

✖ It requires a professional for proper installation

Verdict

Winter is renowned for the dryness it brings, not only through its cold but through all the heating installations that start working in our houses, reducing humidity. Luckily, this model can deal with winter, thanks to the outdoor sensor, which will take care that no matter how cold the weather becomes, your house is well humidified and no chapped lips or cracked furniture emerge from the cold season.


3. AIRCARE MA1201 – Best for the Money

Check Price


Specifications:


  • Type: Evaporative
  • Fill Type: 3.63-gallon water tank
  • Area Coverage: 3,600 sq.ft.
  • Moisture Output Rate: 2.4 gallons/day
  • Fan Speeds: 4
  • Run Time: 36 hours
  • Digital Humidistat:

  • Noise Level: 48 – 77.5 dB
  • Digital Display:
  • Auto Shut-Off:
  • Outdoor Temperature Monitor:
  • Wicking Filter:
  • Rated Power: 80W
  • Warranty: 2-year


We have identified the best report between quality and price in this model from AIRCARE, a feature that makes it very popular among buyers. People like that it can cover a large 3,600 square feet home with a daily moisture output of 2.4 gallons without requiring complicated installations or maintenance. It is a console unit that comes with a 3.63 gallons reservoir. Our tests revealed that it can be easily filled. Although it is a bit large, it can fit into a sink, and then it isn’t difficult to reattach. You may spill a drop or two though, but all the humidifiers have this problem. Nevertheless, we have observed that, once the tank is in its place, the water is absorbed in the console, so you can refill it and thus prolong the 36-hour run time.

A powerful fan draws the air and releases it filled with moisture. Most customers said that they could feel the mist and that this humidifier has visibly improved their life. Nevertheless, although it features 4 fan speeds, you will probably choose the lowest one, as it is the quietest, with a peak sound of 48 decibels. The output is good, so there’s no problem if you keep it running this way. But if you decide to turn the knob to the highest speed, you will have a pretty loud surprise, measuring up to 77.5 decibels.

The maximum energy consumption rate is 80 watts, but we doubt you will use it at the highest speed every day. In fact, most users keep it on the minimum level, thus saving both energy and water. It features a digital display from which you can select fan speed and moisture output. Plus, although the design is pretty basic, it comes with a digital display and a digital thermostat and can adjust its activity to match the parameters you set.

At 14 pounds, it is not a very heavy unit, but it can be difficult to move when the water tank is full. However, the manufacturer solved this problem by adding a set of smooth-rolling wheels that will help you reposition it whenever you want. Maintenance is easy, as there are no complicated filters, just a wick that needs to be replaced once in a while. Plus, the 2-year warranty is good, and you can rest assured that you will receive the necessary support in case of a malfunction.

What we like:
  • Affordable
  • Easy to operate
  • Integrated LCD screen, digital controls, and digital humidistat
  • Easy-fill generous water reservoir
  • Good warranty time
  • No installation required
What we dislike:

✖ It is loud on the highest speed

Verdict

You will not regret choosing this model, as it is produced by one of the most popular brands in the industry. It is well-built and designed to cover daily moisture necessities with a minimum energy consumption rate. Although not the quietest on the market, it delivers an excellent mist output even at the lowest speed, so if you select this option, you can rest assured that it won’t ruin the peace of your house.


2. Honeywell HE360A1075 HE360A – Editor’s Choice

Check Price


Specifications:


  • Type: Fan-powered flow-through
  • Fill Type: Water line
  • Area Coverage: 4,200 sq.ft.
  • Moisture Output Rate: 18 gallons/day
  • Fan Speeds: Variable
  • Run Time: Continuous
  • Digital Humidistat:

  • Noise Level: Low
  • Digital Display:
  • Auto Shut-Off:
  • Outdoor Temperature Monitor:
  • Wicking Filter:
  • Rated Power: N/A
  • Warranty: 1-year


When it comes to humidifiers, Honeywell is always a wise choice, as they usually produce durable, high-quality units that are covered by good warranty time and backed by friendly customer support. This flow-through model can be mounted either on the return air duct of a furnace or on a warm air supply, which will heat the water and help evaporate it. It is equipped with a fan that helps draw the air inside the system and then, once it is filled with moisture, spread it around the house. The flow-through design makes it very easy to maintain, as the only thing you need to replace is the wick filter, and this operation will take place only once or twice per season.

If you are looking to increase humidification in a large house, this humidifier is the best for you. It has the capacity to cover in moisture spaces measuring up to 4,200 square feet and offers an impressive daily mist output of 18 gallons. Although you can set the delivery rate manually, it is more convenient to let it take care of it as it comes with all the necessary measuring instruments. First of all, there’s the humidistat, which is very accurate and will easily sense the humidity level around the house. It will shut down the system when the optimal level is reached, thus preventing over-humidification and energy waste. The second sensor monitors the temperature outside, paying attention to season change so the system can work at its maximum performance.

The fan is quiet and the case is compact, so it won’t stay in your way. The installation process isn’t the simplest though and you may need the help of a specialist, especially if you have never installed a similar unit yourself. Plus, there’s a downside we should mention. Although you pay good money on this unit, it doesn’t include the installation kit that needs to be bought separately. The warranty is rather short as well, compared with the long time this brand usually offers. But, compared with other models, it is very reliable and built of strong materials, so if you are willing to make this financial effort, you will get a system that will run for years with minimum maintenance.

What we like:
  • Excellent area coverage makes it suitable for large homes
  • Smart sensors provide customized run increasing its efficiency
  • Compact and quiet
  • Flow-through design requires minimum maintenance
  • Wick filter keeps the minerals inside, so the moisturized air is safe to breathe
What we dislike:

✖ Installation kit needs to be bought separately

✖ The 1-year warranty is rather short

Verdict

We must agree that it is expensive but it is one of the most performant and durable on the market as well, so you should regard it as a long-term investment that will gradually pay off. The maintenance is hassle-free, as you will only have to change a wick once in a while. Moreover, with the humidistat and outdoor temperature sensor integrated, you can even forget about it, and just enjoy the benefits of the well-moisturized air.


1. Aprilaire 700 – Best Overall

Check Price


Specifications:


  • Type: Fan-powered flow-through
  • Fill Type: Water line
  • Area Coverage: 4,200 sq.ft.
  • Moisture Output Rate: 18 gallons/day
  • Fan Speeds: Variable
  • Run Time: Continuous
  • Digital Humidistat:

  • Noise Level: Low
  • Digital Display:
  • Auto Shut-Off:
  • Outdoor Temperature Monitor:
  • Wicking Filter:
  • Rated Power: N/A
  • Warranty: 5-year


Our first choice is a very popular model from Aprilaire that proved to be the best in terms of design, performance, and costs. With sturdy construction and high-quality inside coils, it was designed to resist years of continuous use. It is easy to maintain and features user-friendly controls. Moreover, it comes with a good warranty and very responsive customer support.

Humidifies Large Homes

It is difficult to find a humidifier that can efficiently cover a large space. Although many units promise to deliver, most of them prove incapable to maintain moisture within optimal parameters. When it comes to this model though, the practical blend of functions and features is very efficient, and we have noticed that it can not only deliver a generous vapor output but maintain it no matter how cold the weather becomes. The following specifications show why it is the best choice for a large house:

  • Strong fan – circulates the humidified air in a space as large as 4,200 square feet and can be adjusted according to the size of the house
  • High moisture output – up to 18 gallons of water per day that can help improve and maintain humidity levels
  • Easy maintenance – the water panel is the only one that needs to be replaced once a year and its cost doesn’t overcome $17

Although on the highest fan speed it can be pretty loud, most users set it on the lowest, as it consumes less power. The performance remains high and the noise is almost unnoticeable. Nevertheless, you may need it to work harder during winter when the air becomes particularly dry, especially as heating installations come into use.

Smart Technology

Although the performance was the first thing we took into account, we must confess that accessibility played an important part in making our selections. We have discovered that Aprilaire 700 is easy to use and very accurate and can be set to run continuously without daily surveillance. Here’s what makes it user-friendly and very convenient:

  • Digital controls – a very accurate knob allows speed and moisture output adjustments
  • Smart sensors – it features a digital humidistat and a temperature sensor that can work together and automatically operate fan speed for the best results
  • LCD screen – shows humidity level and selected functions

Furthermore, it includes three indicator lights, designed to signal different issues. The first one announces you if the unit is doing its job, the second one if the water panel needs to be changed, and the third one lights on only in case a malfunction is detected. In this instance, it is best to make use of the 5-year warranty.

What we like:
  • Very quiet at the lowest speed
  • Smart functions make it very convenient
  • Maintenance is easy with 2 indicator LEDs that let you know what to do
  • Strong construction makes it suitable for extensive run
  • Generous warranty
  • User-friendly controls
What we dislike:

✖ Cannot be installed by a beginner

Verdict

You can purchase it with confidence, as it offers everything a long-term investment should offer: sturdy construction, easy maintenance, practical design, outstanding performance and, last but not least, a very good warranty. Moreover, it is produced by a reputable brand that can stand behind their promises and comes with excellent reviews from the buyers who have already had the chance to test it.

Conclusion

Whether your house is big or small, you should make sure the air is humid enough for your family’s health and your furniture’s integrity. Our selection includes models for every home size, from tiny apartments to multiple-room living spaces. They come at variate prices and with different humidification systems so you can easily pick the right one. Plus, we have made sure that all of them perform as described, so you can purchase with confidence.

Best Whole House Humidifier on the Market: Aprilaire 700

An excellent blend of efficiency and convenience, it is the best option for large spaces due to the strong moisture output rate. It integrates a high-quality fan that can draw large quantities of air and thus speed up the humidification process. The digital controls are easy to use and very accurate, as it includes 2 sensors, one for temperature and one for humidity. Besides that, maintenance is easy, and you receive a long warranty that will cover any manufacturing flaw or issue that may arise during normal utilization.

Editor’s choice: Honeywell HE360A1075 HE360A

It is a popular choice due to its long-lasting construction and impeccable humidification system. Just like our number one choice, it can cover large homes and reduce the effects produced by dryness which can affect your health and destroy your furniture. As it connects directly to the waterline, you won’t ever have to check on a water tank. Moreover, the smart sensors can take care of everything, if you select the auto option.

Best Whole House Humidifier for the Money: AIRCARE MA1201

Although the looks aren’t exceptional, the design is very practical, and we consider it to be the best option for people who don’t want to deal with complicated installations. It is a console option that plugs into a regular outlet to turn water into vapors through evaporation. It is easy to use due to digital controls, the LCD screen, and smart sensors. Plus, the price is very attractive, once you consider the surface it can cover.

Best Whole House Humidifier for Furnace: Aprilaire 500

It is easier to install than all the other units that connect to a furnace, as it comes with a by-pass damper that has been already installed. You will still need to read the manual once or twice, but, in the end, you will pull it through. Not to mention that once installed, it will rarely bother you for maintenance, as the drainage system is very performant and will eliminate all the mineral residues, so build-ups don’t block the system.

Best Whole House Humidifier for Hard Water: Vornado Evap40

Tap water causes problems for all the systems that use it. If washing machines struggle with calcar deposits, humidifiers need to use a wick filter to keep the minerals from spreading around the room. Most models come with one, but it is left to deal with large quantities of water that may reduce its efficiency. Nevertheless, Vornado found a clever solution and provided its unit with 2 water tanks and two wicks respectively. Thus, the filtering is more efficient and maintenance can be performed less often.
