Vicks Cool Mist & Warm Mist Humidifiers offer an array of humidifiers for large and small areas. The health benefits bring relief to people suffering from allergies, colds and asthma. The Vicks V4500 room humidifier features an adjustable humidistat that maintains a selected humidity level. Water is fed from the tank into the base where it is drawn into a centrifugal fan, which in turn spins the water into a superfine cool mist. This quickly brings moisture levels up for near immediate relief. The clear, one-gallon capacity tank shows the water level and provides up to 24 hours of humidifying on a single filling. The tank bottom is sloped for easy emptying, thus eliminating standing water. A large tank opening and easy grip cap make this unit easy to clean and refill. The daily output is one gallon with a power usage of 30 watts. Operation is whisper quiet and there are no expensive filters to replace. When the water reservoir is almost empty, the unit will automatically shut off. A limited three-year warranty is available.

The Vicks V3500N Single Room Evaporative Humidifier is an improved version of the discontinued Vicks V3500. This version is redesigned to be 20% quieter and now features optional Vicks vapor therapy. The one-gallon capacity supplies up to 24 hours of use on a single fill. The daily output is one gallon and the daily power consumption is 30 watts. The controls are analog and the unit has an automatic shutoff feature for when the reservoir is almost empty. The humidifier offers three speed control output settings, a removable clear tank that shows water level and a large tank opening for easy refills. It comes with a three year limited warranty.

The Vicks V745A Humidifier operates efficiently by boiling the tank water, which is then transferred into the air in the form of heated vapors. When the dry air meshes with the heated vapor in the cooling chamber, it is bacteria-free. This unit has a one-gallon clear tank and provides up to twelve hours of operation on one fill. The tank bottom is sloped for complete emptying. The daily output is two gallons and the power consumption is 260 watts. This quiet machine will not interrupt your sleep and is dishwasher safe.

An automatic shutoff adds extra safety when the water is low. The heater features a non-stick coating for simple cleaning and a power switch with two output settings. A glowing nightlight lights up the room and allows the humidifier to be seen at night. Vicks Cool Mist & Warm Mist Humidifiers come with a limited three-year warranty.
