*Disclaimer: I was sent the HC12B Humidifier as compensation for writing this review.
The wonderful people at Luma Comfort sent me the Luma Comfort HC12B Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier for my family to try out! At first, I was a bit skeptical, but after using it I am impressed.
Why was I skeptical? Well, in the past, I had purchased humidifiers from other companies and had several problems because we live in the desert southwest where the water is extremely hard. The hardness of our water caused our previous humidifiers to breakdown. They were also very time consuming to clean. With two small children I do not have time to boil, sanitize, and wipe down appliances once a week.
For me, the most attractive feature of the HC12B Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier is the demineralization cartridge that prevents buildup caused by hard water (distilled water is recommended, however it is not necessary.). To go along with the demineralization feature, the maintenance of the machine requires cleaning just once a month. The water tank only takes a total of 20 minutes to clean with a simple water and hydrogen peroxide swish. Easy enough for a busy mom of two!
Once we received the humidifier, I decided to place it upstairs in our large master bedroom. The humidifier covers up to 650 square feet, and the accompanying remote control reaches 65 feet. For the past 12 years, my husband has had a difficult time sleeping through the night. His sleeping issues have a lot to do with having had his nose broken. Between his nose issue, our dry desert air, and the lack of humidity sleeping through the night was definitely something we both looked forward to!
After the first night of using the Luma HC12B, both my husband and I woke up feeling well rested and refreshed! Over the next two weeks, the great night’s sleep continued!
Not only was our sleep better, but so was our skin! Normally I apply a ton of moisturizer and chapstick before bed each night. After using the humidifier I no longer needed to apply chapstick before bed, yet I still woke up with soft lips and skin! I don’t know any woman who would not enjoy that!
The Luma Cool Mist has several great features, but there were a couple of features that could use some improvement. The Luma Comfort company creates products that are not ugly, but at first, the shape of this unit was not my taste. After I awhile, I found that it began to grow on me, and blended in with our bedroom’s decor.
The other feature that was a surprise was the loud beeping that the humidifier produced when we forgot to refill the water tank. Unfortunately, the beeping happened in the middle of the night, but thanks to the handy remote control, I was able to quickly turn it off and go back to sleep.
Overall, my husband and I are both enjoying having the Luma Comfort Ultrasonic HC12B Cool Mist Humidifier in our home!
If you are in the market for a new humidifier with many attractive features, that provides great value, please look into Luma Comfort!
