Holmes HM495-UC Ultrasonic Medium Room Humidifier Review

Reviewers at Sears.com really like the Holmes Ultrasonic Humidifier saying it holds plenty of water, is easy to clean and is very quiet to the point that it can be used in bedrooms when sleeping. Target.com users agree saying it is super efficient, quiet and performs well. In fact several users say it's the best budget humidifier they have found.

The Holmes Ultrasonic Humidifier, model No. HM495-UC, holds 2.8 gallons of water -- the largest water tank we've found in the Cheapism niche -- and it works in medium rooms. Despite the large water tank, this humidifier has a unique design in that the space saving tower makes it small enough to place it on tables and desks if users don't want to use it on the floor. Additionally, it has variable mist settings and a one-year limited warranty.

We like the size and shape of this cheap humidifier. It has a large water tank and a sleek design that requires less refilling and can be placed anywhere. Users also seem to like this low-cost humidifier, saying it performs well and quietly. Overall, this budget humidifier may be a good option.
