Bionaire Humidifiers: Warm and Cool Mist Humidifiers
Bionaire humidifiers were first introduced to North American consumers in 1983 and since then the company has grown into a massive corporation distributing high-end home comfort systems such as ionizers, fans, humidifiers and dehumidifiers world-wide.
Despite being a fairly young company, Bionaire has managed to build a good reputation for itself and is easily recognizable by the simple, clean, practical and modern design of their products. However, there have been complaints about the reliability of certain features such as the shut-off mechanism and the humidistat.
Ultrasonic systems were first in the long line of humidifiers developed by Bionaire however cool mist humidifiers and warm mist humidifiers have proven to be the most popular mainly because they are more affordable and generally easier to maintain. Overall consumer reviews are positive but as with any major brand, there are bound to be a few glitches here and there.
Bionaire cool mist humidifiers:
The general consensus is that they are quiet, work well in medium sized rooms and the sleek designs provide an aesthetically pleasing space-saving option. The complaints are that they require regular cleaning but this is normal for any cool mist humidifier. One issue that keeps coming up in consumer reviews is that the digital humidistat is not as reliable as it should be with inaccurate humidity readings keeping the machine running even after the target humidity level has been reached. Most consumers tend to give up entirely on this feature and simply run it on manual.
Bionaire warm mist humidifiers:
These tend to be quieter than their cool mist counterparts but some models tend to be difficult to clean which can be a real nuisance when regular maintenance is necessary. Bionaire warm mist humidifiers also gain plus points for good designs and ease of use. A number of reviews complained about malfunctions but this is to be expected as people don’t generally feel the need to review a project unless something has gone wrong.
