It's getting pretty steamy over here! CLOSED

As we were packing up for our move last year from Wisconsin to Connecticut, I went to clean out our humidifier. When I saw how bad the calcium carbonate build up from the hard water was, I ended up throwing it out; it was beyond salvaging. On numerous occasions since then, I have perused the {many} humidifiers on Amazon and various other websites trying to find one that 1. had good reviews and 2. wasn't shaped like a goofy looking animal. And? There really aren't any. I also had no idea whether to opt for one that sends out cool or warm mist.

A couple months ago I learned about the Luma Comfort HCW10B Cool & Warm Mist Humidifier which produces both cool and warm mist. It is also pretty sleek looking; you almost can't tell it's a humidifier. It came in SO handy about three weeks ago when all of us, wee babe included, had endless-runny-nose colds.
My favorite features of the Luma Comfort HCW10B:
  • It has 40 hour run time per tank fill - we can run it for 3 nights in a row for 12+ hours before we need to refill it.
  • There is a built-in hygrometer for custom humidity control. Mike has really enjoyed playing with this, as I'm sure you can imagine. It's his newest man toy.
  • It's smart! Once the room reaches your desired humidity level, the unit shuts off. Once the humidity level decreases, it will restart.
  • If you haven't unplugged it since you used it last, it will remember all of your prior settings (humidity level, cool vs. warm, etc.) 
  • There is no loud whirring or ugly motor sounds; it is almost completely SILENT. 
Some other stats and details:
It has a clear LED display that tells you the humidity level in the room and you can change the misting output from low to medium to high. It also boasts a demineralization cartridge and antibacterial tank. After seeing how gross our old humidifier was, I am really glad the Luma Comfort HCW10B contains these. It has a programmable timer that can be set from 1 to 12 hours and covers an area of 538 square feet.

It produces cool mist and warm mist without boiling the water in the tank so there is no need to worry if your children get near it. In fact, Carina is quite taken aback by it and I couldn't get her to leave it alone {this is clearly not being used as directed here and I don't recommend letting your kids play with it}. She yelled "fier!" as in humidifier the whole time and giggled and it made her oh-so-happy.
Yeah so right as I snapped that bottom right one photo I instantly put down the camera and turned it off. Enough, Carina. Then? She turned it back on. She had so much fun running back into the nursery to turn it on while I was nursing the baby or in the bathroom, I had to start putting it away during the day. {I'd like to reiterate that the mist is not hot and no toddlers were harmed during the taking of these photographs}

Luma Comfort products are available at a number of regional, national, and specialty retailers.
