Pure Guardian H1600

Pure Guardian was once known as Germ Guardian, and for good reason. Their famed silver clean technology, incorporated with the H1600 humidifier, means you get better quality water, hence better quality air and less need for cleaning than other similar models. It also means there are less bacteria released into the air when the unit is in use, making it perfect for allergy sufferers.

Review Details

The Pure Guardian H1600 humidifier uses tiny particles of silver inside the water tank. Silver is well-known for its natural anti-fungal abilities, and this is what slows the production of mildew and mold that you sometimes see in other humidifiers like this. There are no evaporation pads, wicks or filters with this model, which makes maintenance a breeze.

The ultrasonic technology works by creating high frequency sound waves that vibrate within the unit. This breaks down the water into miniscule droplets and is released as a fine cool or warm mist across the whole room. This type of technology is also revered for its quiet operation. Another feature with this model includes a night-light, which adds a relaxing ambience to the room.

What We Liked

  • Advanced Anti-Bacterial Technology
    Using the Silver Clean Technology produced by Pure Guardian, the H1600 produces some of the cleanest moist air on the market. This technology also means the tank is anti-bacterial, hence further enhancing the elimination of harmful germs.
  • Perfect for Any Room
    With super quiet ultrasonic abilities, this unit is barely audible when in operation. This makes it perfect for overnight use.
  • Easy to Maintain
    There are no wicks, evaporation pads or filters to clean with this model, which makes everyday maintenance very easy. It also means there isn’t the added expense of replacement parts.
  • Straight Forward Operation
    The H1600 is equipped with dual mist controls, warm and cool mist options and variable settings. This makes reaching the desired level of moisture really easy.

What We Didn't Like

  • Lack of Humidity Control
    The H1600 doesn’t come with a humidistat or hygrometer which can make it difficult to know what level of humidity you have in the room. However, other models in this price range don’t appear to have this feature either.
  • Care When Filling
    The unit does come with a handle and it’s easy to mistake this for carrying however, care should be taken because it’s installed to remove the tank for refilling.


The Pure Guardian H1600 Humidifier is priced in accordance with the technology they focus on in terms of anti-bacterial moisture. There are a good many additional features you benefit from for your money. The design is gentle on the eye and the added feature of a nightlight and ultrasonic technology makes it perfect for a child’s bedroom. Overall, there are not many other models that boast the features this one does for the price.
