Vornado Ultra1 Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier Review
Vornado Ultra1 Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier was specifically designed for the whole room humidification. It employs the innovative Vortex technology to circulate moist air evenly throughout a 900 sq ft area.
During operation, this device pulls large volumes of harsh dry air inside it, moistens this air using ultrasonic technology and pushes the now moistened air back into the room.
The Vornado Ultra1 Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier has an added advantage over most humidifiers in the sense that it also helps even out a room’s temperature by recovering and recirculating lost heat from the ceiling.
Features Of The Vornado Ultra1 Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier
Vornado Ultra1 Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier is another ultrasonic device. It makes use of the Ultrasonic technology to generate mist. With this technology, there is a metal diaphragm that vibrates at a virtually silent ultrasonic frequency to rapidly generate and disperse a fine, even mist for a comfortable room environment.
Ultrasonic technology also ensures that the mist generated is generated quietly. The another advantage of this technology is the fact that it is quiet. However, with this device, the main reason it is quiet is because of the Vortex circulation.
Vortex circulation is very quiet. In fact, it is practically silent. If you put it on and place it on high speed and next to your bed when you are going to sleep, you may hear the sound of the fan running quietly. The sound that the fan produces is still soothing and may actually help you sleep more.
This is what is often called white noise. Therefore, since the device is a whole house device, you can be guaranteed that its operation will not disturb your sleep pattern or work pattern.
With this technology, a vortex beam of air is created to quietly propel the moisture of air into the room for a true whole room humidification. This is the second way how mist is generated on this device. Both ultrasonic and vortex technology have been used. This makes the device even much more effective.
User Defined settings
The Whole Room Humidifier also has user defined settings. These settings allow you to choose your desired humidity level and fan speed through push button controls with LCD screen.
This way, you are able to see digitally the accurate level of humidity you want and the speed you want it to be released at. With such kind of technology, you may have an easy time working with the device.
Electronic Adjustable humidistat
This device also has an electronically adjustable humidistat. This helps to ensure that the unit switches itself off when humidity is reduced to your preferred levels and on when it drops below your preferred levels. This plays a huge role in ensuring that the air does not dry out too much, and also helps to eliminate the need for the dehumidifier to run excessively.
Moreover, there are 3 settings on the device. These 3 settings are used to adjust the moisture output and sound levels. These settings make using the device easier as they are simple and straight forward.
The Vornado Humidifier has an automatic shut-off feature. This works on the theory that once the device runs out of the water, it automatically tips over shutoff and overload protection. This helps to ensure that accidents such as fire break out do not occur as a result of the humidifier being empty. Secondly, it also helps to ensure that you do not waste your energy once the device is short of water.
Whenever you use hard water in the device, this water is likely to form white dust. White dust is not good since it will be sprayed with the water from the device which you might find some white powder on your floor and furniture. This is the main reason the manufacturers of this device decided to use a mineral cartridge.
The mineral cartridge helps to prevent minerals and calcium from being missed out with the water, eliminating white dust in your room. This cartridge also reduces lime and calcium buildup within the unit.
Most humidifiers out here have filters but one is never certain when they need to replace the filters. This is inconveniencing since you might use the filter for a long time reducing its life completely or you might end up t discard it earlier.
The Vornado Ultra1 Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier has reminder indicators. These are supposed to remind you when you are supposed to replace the filter and mineral cartridge.
The Vornado Ultra1 Whole Room Ultrasonic Humidifier has a two-gallon tank. I have always recommended having a large water reservoir. This is the only way you can be comfortable that the device will service you for long hours without constantly reminding you to refill the tank. With the 2 gallon tank, this device is capable of working for a continuous 24 hours before refilling it again.
