The HCW10B humidifier from Luma Comfort has placed an emphasis on not just effectively humidifying a dry atmosphere, but it has also been designed to eliminate health problems that arise as a result. It’s equipped with many features, but the most important is the demineralization cartridge which helps remove particles from the air that can cause sore throats, stuffy noses and coughs.

Review Details

It covers an area of up to 538 sq ft, making it perfect for the bedroom, and the fact it also has an anti-bacterial water tank further enhances the quality of air you breathe.

The technology used with this model makes it near silent when in use, it won't disturb sleep. Other features include a run-time of 40 hours with a pre-set timer for 12 hours.

What We Liked

  • Cleaner More Breathable Air
    The HCW10B is equipped with both a demineralization cartridge which reduces white residue, plus the tank is anti-bacterial. With both warm and cool mist options, it makes breathing easier and allows for a better night’s sleep.

  • Ease of Use

What We Didn't Like

  • In-Built Alarm
    The unit will tell you if it’s almost empty by setting off an alarm, which can be inconvenient if you’re sleeping. The problem can be eliminated if the water level is checked before bed.
  • Smoke Colored Reservoir
    It can be difficult to tell at a glance how much water is left in the tank because of the color. However, it is equipped with a low level water indicator.

Conclusion

Given the attention to detail in terms of air quality and how this unit works to reduce the symptoms of winter skin and seasonal allergies, it’s worth the money. However, if you’re looking for a humidifier that’s got plenty of additional smaller features, there are other models on the market for the same price. Overall, design has been thought about and there are features included that make the HCW10B easy to use and keep clean.
