The Honeywell HWM705B might look familiar to people who are used to reading recommendations from this site. That’s because this humidifier is very similar to the Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier, with the major differences being the addition of a second handle on the bottom of the water tank to make it easier to grip, and a smaller water hole, meaning that you can’t reach into the water tank to clean it out.
This humidifier has a large tank and significant output so that you don’t have to refill the water tank as much. Upkeep is very easy with the Honeywell Warm Moisture Humidifier and it doesn’t require any filters or additional parts. The nightlight, so if you’re kept awake by light, you won’t have any problems sleeping near this model like you might with the Vicks Warm Humidifier.
If you need absolute quiet then you’ll want to go with an ultrasonic humidifier instead of an evaporative humidifier. The heating pad makes noise as does the water tank. It’s a slight bubbling noise that sounds like white noise, but not everyone will enjoy hearing their humidifier. If you have a large space to add humidity to, you should also go with a larger humidifier. I would not recommend this for a baby or child’s room, since the warm mist can potentially burn. If you are looking for a baby humidifier, I would recommend looking at the cool mist humidifier reviews.
Overall Recommendation / The Honeywell HWM705B Filter Free Warm Moisture Humidifier is a great one room humidifier. It’s nice for the bedroom because it raises humidity to the recommended 50% level. If you want to humidify a small space or bedroom, this humidifier works well and inexpensively. It’s a the perfect way to humidify a small space for an affordable price.

The Honeywell Warm Mist Humidifier is a simple to use humidifier that’s easy to assemble, clean, and maintain properly. Many of the parts are dishwasher safe, the humidifier has an auto shut off which makes sure that your humidifier doesn’t overheat when it runs out of water, and the display light shows you exactly when the humidifier needs to be reset. It can also be used with Kaz Inhalant or Vicks VapoSteam to help clear sinuses and provide comfort when you have a cold, in addition to keeping the air humidified.
Properly assemble the humidifier, choosing a location that is firm, water-resistant, level, and 12″ away from walls. Fill the water tank with cool, clean water, then place it on the base. Plug in the humidifier, choose the humidity output you want, and monitor your humidity level with a hygrometer. If you want to add liquid inhalant, you can add 1 tablespoon to the medicine cup.
Honeywell HWM705B Filter Free Warm Moisture Humidifier Cleaning
The removable tray, cooling chamber, and mist outlet are all top shelf dishwasher safe without detergent or other dishes in there. After every time that you use the humidifier, you should remove any excess water that ends up in the base or is left in the water tank to stop the growth of mold and bacteria.
Weekly you should descale the humidifier and disinfect it. To remove any scale, unplug the humidifier, remove the water tank, disassemble the cooling chamber, remove the removable tray, and fill the heating element with one cup of undiluted white vinegar. Place the removable tray back over the heating element, and allow them to soak for fifteen to twenty minutes. Pour out the vinegar after it soaks, then use a soft brush or cloth to clean the heating element.
To disinfect, add one teaspoon of bleach to one gallon of water and fill the water tank with this solution, as well as the heating element. After twenty minutes, pour out the bleach and rinse out both parts until the bleach smell has gone away.
The Honeywell HWM705 Warm Mist Humidifier is a solid humidifier that will keep any small space nice and comfortable. In the event that any defects occur, you are protected by a three year warranty, and with proper care your humidifier should last even longer than that. It’s recommended for adult bedrooms with people who don’t mind a little white noise of water and can handle a little night light that isn’t extremely visible.
