We placed our new EssickAir 9 Gallon Pedestal Evaporative Air Whole House Humidifier with Decorative Tile Insert in our dining room and I sat two decorate vases on top, which I will eventually put flowers in. We let the humidifier run almost continuously for almost 2 days and then we started turning it off during the day and turning it back on in the evening (in case it raised our electric bill too high). After about the second night of using the humidifier, I started noticing a huge difference in how my mouth, lips, and tongue felt in the morning when waking up. My mouth is still a little bit dry (but I do think I sleep with my mouth open most of the night) but it's now tolerable and not uncomfortable or painful. I'm glad we quit talking about it and purchased a whole house humidifier because it's made such a huge difference in just a short period of time.
*Disclosure: I was not asked by Sears or EssickAir to write a review of the EssickAir 9 Gallon Pedestal Evaporative Air Whole House Humidifier with Decorative Tile Insert. This was purchased by me and I wanted to share my thoughts.
