Backed by 25 years of German engineering, the Venta VS205 ultrasonic humidifier is the latest in a long line of very successful cool and warm mist models. The unit has a no nonsense design which makes it easy to use and maintain. The tank comes in an attractive blue color that won’t look out of place, whatever room you decide to place it. It also comes with a spacious tank that will easily humidify a room of up to 600 sq ft.
The Venta VS205 uses up to the minute technology, making it one of the quietest models on the market. It will produce either a cool or warm fine mist into the air and uses nano-silver technology. This means together with the demineralization cartridge, the unit is free from limescale build-up. Bacteria, mildew and mold are almost non-existent in the evaporated water.
The unit is also equipped with a titanium plated oscillator, which means it will not corrode and is easy to maintain. Among other features, this Venta ultrasonic humidifier will also alert you to an empty tank, and it will switch off when the desired level of humidity has been reached.
What We Liked
- Advanced Ultrasonic Technology
This humidifier uses the latest in ultrasonic technology, which makes it practically silent when in operation. It’s incredibly useful for the bedroom or other rooms where noise is an issue.
- Bacteria Protection
Equipped with the latest in nano-silver technology, this unit will make sure the water is free from harmful bacteria. Together with its demineralization cartridge, it will also ensure that you don’t have to deal with mold, mildew or lime-scale.
- No Guesswork
Very cleverly, Venta have included an automatic humidistat so you just set the desired level and let the unit do the work for you. Once the desired level of humidity has been reached, the unit will automatically switch off (you can't read out the humidity though).
- Easy to Use
Venta have made this latest model no nonsense. It’s equipped with two controls, one for the humidity level and spray power, and one for the temperature of the mist.
What We Didn't Like
- Filling the Tank
The design of this model does mean the tank needs to be turned upside down when it requires filling. However, with a capacity of 1.8 gallons you will only need to do this, at most, once a day.
- White Dust
It has to be noted that if you use this unit close to electronic equipment, you will notice a fine white dust. However, this usually only happens if you use tap water instead of distilled.
Overall, the Venta ultrasonic humidifier is a fantastic buy. It combines a practical design coupled with up to the minute technology that makes the unit easy to use and very effective. It’s capable of humidifying a 400 sq ft space to almost 50% within 1 hour. There are technologies used within this unit that are hard to find in other units around this price range. All in all, it’s definitely worth the money.Review by AirReflect ©
