Honeywell HUL535B Cool Mist Humidifier Review
Are you in the market for a reliable humidifier? Honeywell offers a series of quality ultrasonic humidifiers you can depend on. They are all durable, easy-to-operate units. I find the Honeywell HUL535B model to be smoother and more efficient. It quickly and silently disperses comfortable mist to alleviate allergy symptoms and soothe dry, itchy skin. It creates both warm and cool mist to quickly turn harsh, dry air into the comfortable moist living environment.
I first learned of the Honeywell HUL535B Cool Mist Humidifier from a review one of my friends had written on his blog. He claimed to have purchased it at a time when he was battling with Flu A. He also said that his very dry NYC apartment- getting radiator heat- was yet another factor that made him run for this humidifier. He was so impressed at how the little machine changed his living space. Almost immediately humidifying the whole room and creating a comfortable living environment as soon as it gets powered. I cannot say it all, but he did make very strong positive remarks about the performance and functional features of this unit.
I own a crane drop humidifier myself. And it does a pretty good job, safe from a few problems here and there. So, when I got a chance to come by my pals place, I asked to have a look at his Honeywell HUL535B. Everything about it was perfect. And it was my first encounter with it! Right, there I ordered one from Amazon. It was actually great since the thing shipped 3 days ahead. And, upon using, I noticed that there was indeed a discernable difference from what the crane drop offered. So I kept the former away and switched to the Honeywell. I write this Honeywell HUL535B cool mist humidifier review after 3 months of using it. All this while I have been analyzing its performance to come up with the perfect, most helpful review.
Features Of The Honeywell HUL535B Cool Mist Humidifier
The HUL535B uses ultrasonic humidification technology to quietly disperse fine mist. It uses directional nozzles to enlarge its coverage. Mist is dispersed in two directions. It’s Transmitted farther into the room for fast humidification. The fine mist spreads into the air to provide relief from dry air discomfort.
It’s impressive how this compact unit is able to move vast volumes of air and produce enough moisture to cover a whole room. Almost as soon as this unit gets powered, you notice a remarkable difference in the room’s humidity level. The impact is significant.
Multiple control options
You get two-speed settings with this unit. You get high and low settings. On its highest speed, the Honeywell HUL535B Cool Mist transforms nearly 2 gallons into mist within 24 hours. It’s high mist output is best for large rooms of up to 650 so. ft. In medium-small rooms, lower speed settings are appropriate. The settings for lowest humidity output run for longer with minimum refill requirements.
Visible cool mist
With the Honeywell HUL535B humidifier, you almost immediately notice an improvement in the moisture condition in your home. Plants thrive better and wooden furniture looks more alive.

The HUL535B is a reliable and durable humidifier. It distributes moisture further into the room for fast humidification. You’ll appreciate it for three things; efficiency, convenience, and silent operation. It’s not the kind of unit that requires constant refilling every few hours. On the low settings, the unit can operator for a whole 24 hours.
1 Gallon tank capacity
Humidifiers with whole room humidification often run out of the water much quicker. With a large 1-gallon tank capacity, it lasts much longer. It provides water for humidification up to 24 hours on the low settings. Higher settings are appropriate for medium to large rooms. They empty the tank rather speedily. But, the rate is acceptable.
Refilling the tank isn’t a breeze. And, since the unit uses ultrasonic humidification, you need not worry about frequently replacing wicks. It’s a low maintenance unit.

Frequently Asked Question
Q. Is this safe around electronics like a home audio receiver or the T.V? Also, does it warp wood or rust metal in the room?
A. I run this unit in my living room. It has not done any damage here. I think it’s for the fact that you get to control how much moisture output you get from it. Even so, the only water residue I ever saw was this one time when I was transporting it to the bed room and there was a drop on the floor. I suppose this would have cause damage if a significant amount had fallen on one of the electronics. But, I cannot really see this happening. It is a sturdy unit. If you are still concerned, you should call their customer relations department at 1-800-477-0457. Hope this was helpful.
Q. How long does a full tank last?
A. On the lowest, probably 24 hours or more. I fill mine once every day and the room gets humidified well. You’ll love the auto shut off feature. It goes off when the water tank runs out of the water.
