This is an ultrasonic humidifier. It vibrates the surface water molecules until they break free from the others and they fly off into the air. It is very efficient. HOWEVER, anything that is dissolved in the water (minerals like calcium, magnesium, sodium) fly out along with the water molecules. And when those molecules evaporate in the surrounding air (humidifying it), the minerals drop out and collect on the nearest charged surface, leaving a white powder on everything around. Because electronics have static charges, the mineral powder will build up on them. The only way to prevent this with an ultrasonic humidifier is to use pure water -- distilled or having been run through a reverse osmosis filter, both of which are very expensive methods. A normal water filter (e.g. Brita) won't really do a thing to help because it does not trap minerals, only larger particles. And if you are adding essential oils to an ultrasonic humidifier, it's likely that they, too, will be vibrated into the room. So you might have oils landing near the unit.

Other choices are steam vaporizers and evaporative humidifiers. Steam vaporizers are like mini boiling units, and work by passing an electric current through the water, heating it to boiling. They produce pure steam, leaving all the minerals behind. Unfortunately, those minerals are attracted to the anode/cathodes of the electric device and after a few days, begin to degrade the ability of the unit to pass electric current. So you have to go in and chip off the scale that has formed. Again, if you use pure water, you reduce the minerals, but you also reduce the electric current. The other drawback to steam vaporizers is that they are electric-intensive. I checked a 1-gallon unit and it drew between 800 and 1,000 watts continuously. So, that would be $2.40 worth of electricity a day in my area.

Evaporative humidifiers work by using a fan to blow air over a membrane that is saturated with water (think of it like a towel drying, but at a much faster rate). Again, minerals are left behind, but the removal/cleanup is easier because you just rinse out the tank and soak the membrane with vinegar to re-dissolve the minerals every month or so. Electric usage is lower because you are running a small fan, not boiling water. Downside is you have to keep the unit clean or it can grow bacteria, which will blow into the room (in an extreme case, this was the cause of Legionnaire's disease). But all you have to do to prevent it is to add a tablespoon of bleach every couple of weeks. Evaporative humidifiers can be fixed (attached to your furnace duct) or portable (you fill the jug at the sink and put it in the unit). The problem I found with the fixed units is that my furnace does not run often enough (gas heat in a super-insulated home), so I opted for a console portable that holds 3.6 gallons at a time.

I use a steam vaporizer when I need fast, sterile humidification like in the room of a baby or an immuno-compromised senior citizen. But for whole-house humidification, an evaporative unit is the most cost-effective.

Hope this helps.

They can't be found. Read the questions from customers on Amazon about these filters and where to get them. They won't even give a response other than to say "contact support" and in January 2017 it was something@anker.com and now it is something@eufylife.com (not literally 'something' but i'm not going back and looking) Just not a good sign imo. Why wouldn't you just tell people where to get them, or if they exist. I can't even find them on their website, and their "live chat" just asks for my email address. Thumbs down on this!! Blowup

DO NOT BUY.

This is clearly a shill. All these thumbs up and comments within first few minutes for a product with 56 reviews. Company is fakespot C, and based on this post clearly have no problem buying reviews.

But besides this being a shill post, who would want a filter requiring humidifier from China? Seriously, save your money.

Promo code isn't working for me.

The promotional code you entered is not valid.

EDIT: Kept trying and eventually it worked. Looks to be fixed now.

I have a different Eufy humidifier and it's my favorite of the four I've owned in recent years. The one I have is super easy to clean and works perfectly.

Good for the price. Main complaint seems to be the lack of handles on the reservoir, which makes gripping it difficult once it's been filled with water.
