This humidifier works as expected and installed relatively easily with basic HVAC tools and knowledge. I didn't run across the leaking problem that others had mentioned. I did meticulously make sure the unit was installed level. The supplied 6" duct was long enough for my application. I connected the power source to my furnace circuit board rather than an AC outlet. I would have given 5 stars, but product has only been in service two weeks. I can't comment on long term use. I have noticed house feels more comfortable at lower set temps.
Pros: Easy to Use

Great Humidifier for the Price and Everything Needed for a Typical Installation is Included

I have owned a 12HF for several years and have had good luck with my unit and recommended it to a neighbor that had mentioned their house gets dry in the winter. I did my own installation, so I offered to help them once they received their humidifier and a little over 2 hours later they were set.
What I like about this unit compared to other brands is that it comes with everything needed for typical applications in one box and it has a plug-in transformer so no hardwiring is involved. Plus, it uses a lot less water than most other brands out there; the water valve on most flow through style units is completely open when there is a call for humidity, but this unit adds water in pulsed intervals.
Lastly, maintenance is very low. I just put in a new evaporator pad at the beginning of each season and wipe out the shallow drain pan area to remove any mineral build-up.

I installed the product about three weeks ago. At current it is working as expected. Installation was an easy task. It only took me a few hours to install. I'm a bit of a perfectionist so it took a little longer than it could of. Plus I hard wired the unit to the furnace so that I didn't have to install an extra plug for the unit and the drain pump. If you have access to a floor drain you won't need a pump. My last humidifier lasted for ten years so the jury is out on the longevity of this unit.
Pros: Easy to Install

I purchased this humidifier to replace an older Lasko unit that had failed after 10 years. This unit had a slightly larger footprint and installed easily. I already had the power, water, and drain setup so install was a snap. It comes with everything necessary down to the saddle valve for supply and hose to connect to the drain. It makes an odd sound when the solenoid valve opens but other than that is completely quiet. It also includes a damper for tool free seasonal transitions. I purchased an additional wick to save searching for one later. The difference in the house is amazing. Cats are much happier.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Nice Design, you need a humidifier

No, I do not recommend this product.
Makes a horrible loud noise as water flows through it. I honestly can't feel a difference in my home.
Cons: loud

Device could not be fitted - flow tube limits installation options. Would recommend with caveats.
Pros: nice and simple concept
Cons: details of assembly not well documented.
