Furthermore, it prevents the allergic signs and symptoms from happening, because it moisturizes the dry air circulating inside your house. Thirdly, well-humidified space decreases, if not totally eliminates, static electricity that damages our sensitive gadgets and appliances.

And lastly, optimum humidification creates a comfortable environment in your place, even on a lower thermostat level. This saves you some energy expenses that you can use for other things.

AIRCARE H12-400HB comes with caster that makes the device easier to move around for proper and strategic location or even for simple redecorating. It also comes with customizable settings and an automatic shutdown setting.

The former allows you to adjust the humidity level you want to achieve and maintain, while the latter causes the automatic shut off of the device once it detects that the set humidity level is already reached. Auto shutdown not only maintains the humidity level desired, but also saves the humidifier from using more electricity.

Moreover, the filter and refill indicators make maintenance of the humidifier easier – one does not need to check for possible changing of filters or refilling of water every now and then, as the humidifier does the reminding for you.

These indicators are great to prevent the device from operating continuously despite the lack of water or the dirty filters; hence, it avoids damage on the device itself.


The process of taking out the water bottle for refilling and placing it back to the console humidifier may be cumbersome for others. It needs to be refilled twice or thrice a day; for others, this routine may be unsatisfactory or an inconvenience, especially for busy owners who have more important things to do than refill a humidifier.

If this is the case, then it is strongly advised to look for a humidifier that has a higher tank capacity which needs to be refilled only once a day, or every other day, or better yet, every week.

Some of the purchasers have a problem with the drainage of the water. There are times that the water gets stuck in the tank and stops draining into the humidifier. It needs jostling before it starts draining again.

Furthermore, there are some issues with the noise, like most of the humidifiers on the market. The fan setting produces tolerable noise but as the settings go up, the noise becomes louder and more bothersome.

There are also some issues about the need to constantly change the filters of the AIRCARE H12-400HB. The quality of the filters, according to some purchasers, is substandard; thus, there is a constant need to change it. With this, customers have to spend more in purchasing filters very now and then just to keep the AIRCARE H12-400HB running and performing well.


Taking everything about about AIRCARE H12-400HB 3-Speed Whole-House Console-Style Evaporative Humidifier into consideration, especially its features and performance, it can be said that it is worth the pay.

The benefits override the downsides, since most of the issues are minor ones that can be overlooked when AIRCARE H12-400HB performs and lives up to its tasks. At the end of the day, we like to have a humidifier that can deliver when the need calls for it. Without a doubt, AIRCARE H12-400HB delivers its promises well.
