Air-O-Swiss Review

We like living healthier and we like healthy air. Which is why we have 2 Oreck Air Purifiers. One in the living area and one in our bedroom at night. But we don't yet have a humidifier. Why? I'm not really sure. I need one. In the winter the walls of my nose thin and I get bloody noses all the time. I have to put A&D ointment in my nose EVERY night.
Well with the help of Air-O-Swss I now have a humidifier the AOS 7142, and It's amazing!

It's a generous size but it does up to 860 sq. ft which is what we need. It's in our bedroom at night and in the living room during the day.
It has a nice big water holding tank so it surely lasts ALL NIGHT!
We turn it on about 9 and then Jon goes to bed at 11 and I'm in bed by 1. I love it, when I walk in at night I can smell clean air and it's nice and humid in there. It stays on High until I go to bed and then it goes down to Low

It has an automatic shut off once it gets to your desired humidity level. Which is between 40% and 80%. Ours is usually at 60%. 

I like that it's warm OR cool mist so that's kind of nice. I like that it's DIGITAL!
Humidification System
This digital ultrasonic humidifier uses high-frequency vibrations to turn water into a micro-fine mist when blown into a room immediately evaporates. Choose the pre-heating function and mist exits the appliance at a pleasant 104 °F. «ITC™» technology (Intelligent Temperature Compensation) monitors the temperature and automatically adjusts the output when conditions change. A replaceable demineralization (Ag+ Ionic Silver Technology) cartridge ensures water mist without lime scale or mineral residues, and the AIR-O-SWISS quad-band microbial protection system helps prevent microbial growth in the water base. This is particularly important when the humidifier is not used for some time with water remaining in the base. 

Price: $229.99 which is quite a bit for the frugal and thrifty family. BUT It's a good humidifier and I hope it lasts a while at that price!
Overall: *** I don't like that you have to change filters. If I'm paying $230 for a humidifier it better have a permanent filter!
The filter is $12.99 and needs to be changed every 2-3 months!
