PureGuardian – H3200BCA: Humidifier Review

Do you experience those sleepless nights when tossing, whizzing, and sneezing is the order of the night? Or does your skin get so dry, your lips chap and cold and allergies seem to be creeping to you every now and then? Or does your house get so uncomfortable and your concentration level just drops to zero to a point of being totally unproductive?

This could be as a result of the change of climate, leaving the moisture content of your surroundings so low to unconducive levels thus causing all those undesirable effects. While the change of climate and weather is an occurrence of nature, technology has gotten a way of containing this situation and make life bearable, through the use of a humidifier.

And though there are a number of humidifiers that cost a leg and an arm, some are pretty affordable and still do the intended work like PureGuardian H3200BCA Ultrasonic Humidifier.

Description of the H3200BCA by PureGuardian

Often referred to as the 100-hour, the PureGuardian H3200BCA humidifier is a quick reliever from dry, heated air that likely worsens the situation of individuals suffering from allergies and cold. It is a space-saving tower-shaped humidifier with an approximate length of 21.9 inches and a diameter of 8.8 inches and weighs about 6.35 pounds. With its small weight and size, the PureGuardian H3200BCA is assured to consume very little space and can be placed almost anywhere including on the top of your working desk.

Despite its small size, this humidifier can be comfortably used in a medium-sized room and less often in large rooms. It has a large tank with a capacity of 1.5 gallon which is easy to fill. Additionally, the PureGuardian H3200BCA has an embedded silver clean protection inside the tank which ensures that neither mold nor mildew grows on the water tank surface.

Another advantage of the PureGuardian H3200BCA is that it produces an unnoticeable soothing mist high into the atmosphere in a very quiet manner making it non-disruptive when sleeping thanks to the ultrasonic technology used to design it. Its rotational nozzle enables it to disperse the mist multi-directionally.

On the top surface, this humidifier is loaded with 3 convenient options including a night lamp, a 12-hour timer (to 4, 8, or 12 hours), and a 3 mist speed which can be set accordingly depending with the state of the atmosphere which also determines the runtime. Once the humidifier is about to run out of water an indicator light and once completely empty it automatically turns off.

This humidifier is said to have a runtime of up to 100 hours when set at a low speed and in a relatively moist atmosphere, Nut this can change to a shorter time span of even up to 8 hours in areas where humidity is a big issue. In most cases, the humidifier comes along with an aqua stick antimicrobial treatment, which is bought separately, but it is optional. The aqua stick helps to keep the water tank clean. Nevertheless, cleaning this humidifier is very easy and can be done daily or weekly, instead of incurring an extra cost on aqua sticks.

Another favorable feature of this humidifier is that it does not use filters. This reduces its maintenance cost since humidifier filters are always demanding to be replaced, are complicated to clean and also encourages the breeding of slimy mold.

Users' feedback

Users quotes on Amazon.comIt’s totally silent and filling is so much easier since you can take it right to the sink and fill it. Best humidifier I have ever found and my ferns near it love it in this weather. They usually suffer during their winter hibernation period inside. I have not found one thing that I do not like."

Users quotes on Amazon.comI have owned this humidifier for four months and it started leaking a week ago. There is a lot of water on my floor every morning. It was always treated with care. The leak is a defect in the manufacturing. I would stay clear of this product"

Conclusion: H3200BCA by PureGuardian

The PureGuardian H3200BCA Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier Tower is an incredible humidifier with lots of good features. It is lightweight and small in size making it very portable and can easily be refilled directly on the tap.

Nevertheless, just like everything else this sweet humidifier also has a not so pleasant side including its lifespan. Several individuals have complained of either the timer or the mist control failing after a short time of usage, while others have claimed that it requires a refill too soon contrary to what is stated in the product features.

However, despite these few negative features, this is a nice humidifier especially for a bedroom and better still cost friendly.
