    • Description
      Store SKU:

      The Evap 2 Vornado Whole Room Evaporative Humidifier is a uniquely effective means to create a comfortable, perfectly humidified living space. Vornado's deep pitched blades pull large volumes of harsh, dry air through the unit and then, using Vornado’s signature Vortex Action, circulates the humidified air throughout the room, providing complete and balanced humidification. The Evap 2 also recovers and circulates heat off of the ceiling, helping to maintain an even room temperature – especially useful during the dry, cold winter season. The built-in humidistat automatically and precisely regulates humidity output or can be set to run continuously. The easy-to-use push button controls allow you to choose your desired humidity level, or fan only, for fan operation without humidity output. Three fan speed settings are available - High, Low or Auto. In the Auto setting, the fan will fluctuate up or down to maintain the set humidity level. 1-Gal. capacity. 2-Gal. output every 24 hours. Provides coverage up to 600 sq. ft. 5 year limited warranty.

      It's that time of year and adding humidity to the air makes a real difference in your comfort, especially sleeping. I gave up on ultrasonic humidifiers LONG ago because I can hear them (yes, my hearing is that good) and they annoy me, and so does the moistened area around the device and the white mineral dust. They don't last and don't do a very good job, even if the water does get used up. Heated mist ones are fine if you like things wetted, but are really for sick people and short term use, aimed at the patient and meticulously sanitized. Twenty years ago, the idea of powered evaporative humidification just made sense, but most of the devices were too small to last a day or too large to place. This Vornado Evap2 is unique. It is a decent reservoir sized unit that has the footprint of barely more than a little ceramic heater! Since the form factor is vertical, there are a couple of benefits. First of all, you can put this on the floor, which I recommend you do, at one side of the room, aiming the tilted top towards the center of the ceiling. This will give you the added benefit of GENTLY creating a circulation in the room to pull the moist cooler air on the floor up and push down the warmer air at the ceiling. You'll be a bit warmer, breathe better and not have a humidity concentrated area. Because of its height, most people will be able to operate the buttons without stooping over nearly to the floor, a godsend for folks with bad backs. I don't need to squat to operate or fill the unit. Filling is the only thing about the design I'm not keen on. This reservoir can be filled in the kitchen but not the bathroom sink. If this is for your bedroom or master suite, that's somewhat inconvenient. Also, it's very awkward to hold the reservoir and there are no truly flat surfaces, so you can't just stand it up after filling. When you refill, you are committed to starting and completing only that task and no other in the process. You CAN remove and reinstall the fill cap if you have arthritis. It is palm-grippable, and it only take about 1/3 turn off and on, and you'll feel a positive soft "click." I have NOT had any of the problems with getting the reservoir out and back in that others have. Once you practice a couple times, it's literally a snap, and I can just "key" it in on the bottom and let go and it pops right into place. This machine is QUIET on low speed, understandably loud on high speed. I wish there was a medium speed, but Vornado doesn't do that on humidifiers. The gurgle from water coming out of the is soft and muffled compared to every other humidifier, including Vornados, that I've owned. Looks snappy, absolutely puts moisture in the air in a decent sized room, and once it blasts through the first couple of fills it should make it a day per fill on low speed in a closed large room and you'll barely notice it operating. Easy enough to clean, moves air, quiet, really humidifies and you can get at the motor to lubricate it a couple times a year to make it last beyond its FIVE YEAR WARRANTY. I like it but for the couple of small things I mentioned.
