The Luma Comfort HCW10B is the best humidifier that we have ever utilized. The intuitiveness of the design makes it incredibly easy to use, while the functionality that it provides ensures that the proper amount of humidity will be present in the room. Whether cool or warm mist, the HCW10B provides ample humidity no matter how dry the area may be (our apartment is wracked with dryness from the central air). What is amazing about the Luma Comfort HCW10B is that filling the tank keeps the humidifier going for up to forty hours. Where other humidifiers have suffered from the accumulation of lime scale, the HCW10B has technology present to remove this buildup. We had to previously utilize CLR and other harsh chemical products to descale our humidifiers, a cost that simply is not present whenever we use the Luma HCW10B. Another side effect of the creation of lime scale came in the gradual increase in volume from the operation of the humidifier. The HCW10B stays quiet, no matter how long the humidifier is running. For those that wake up easily, this will be a considerable boon. Finally, the presence of a built-in hygrometer allows for further keying-in of the humidity level. While absolutely essential, the only drawback that I can find with the HCW10B is the audible alarm that occurs when one runs out of water in the tank. Make sure to fill the humidifier each night, and this alarm will not happen.
One can purchase the Luma Comfort HCW10B for around $100 from online retailers. It will likely be the last humidifier that one will need. Visit the Luma Comfort website for information about their various product lines; the wide array of products that they produce will make residential life that much easier.
