My son has asthma and allergies. He also has to use a humidifier. The old School type are so big and bulky and so inconvenience. It was a nice change to have this to try out in our family. It's such a nice size he can take it with him if he away from home. This humidifier is great because it has digital readings. It's adjustable so you can set the timer for either cool or heat function. My son doesn't have to worry with waking up with a dry sore hoarse throat in the mornings like before. He can also breath comfortable throughout the night. One of the things we like it's that you don't have to use distilled water because that can get expensive especially if you use it every night like he does. With this machine just use the tap water and it works great.
