Momma Told Me: It's not pretty, but it's functional.

Growing up we had a very ugly appliance that was a staple in our condominium- it was an off brown color, hard textured plastic, and reminded me of my training potty in shape and stature. It sat on Momma's nightstand, on my bedroom dresser when I was sick with the flu, and even on the living room coffee table during especially dry Southern California months (which there are many of.) Humidity, and the lack of moisture in Southern California (valley) air was  big issue for my family. As a child my skin and lungs were prone to various dehydration conditions and Momma, recently in remission from a battle with cancer that had claimed a large portion of her lung capacity, struggled to breathe on most dry hot days. As a tween my family later moved towards the ocean for a more humid climate; but the memories of that hauntingly ugly, and loud, humidifier, still remain.

While I still live fairly close to the Southern California coasts today, I am awful about hydration and even find myself with a bloody nose from dry sinuses on particularly dry days. Yes, I track and drink water to help with hydration, but there's simply no way to combat the Santa Ana winds- which resemble the dry (allergen infused) winds of the Mojave dessert. Just walking outside to get the mail on a Santa Anas day leaves my cheeks chapped and my skin dry. Luma Comfort's HC12W and HC12B (the black finish version) Cool Mist humidifiers are truly the answer to the age old dilemma of ugly humidifiers versus dry climates and skin. Not only does the cool mist operation more efficiently distribute a finer particulate of moisture into the atmosphere, but has a whisper quite operation that sounds like a soft bubbling 'white noise.'

Unpacking our Luma Comfort HC12W Cool Mist Humidifier was simple- the base houses the actual mechanical portion of the unit, while the tank is houses in the secondary (middle) portion, and 3 varying lengths of flute are provided to help alter the height of humidity distribution. The unit is cleverly designed to look like a modern vase for discreet decor integration and all pieces snap on top of one another. We did have some trouble visually getting the seams to disappear on a few pieces, but found the parts eased into one another over time and use. The generous 2.5 gallon tank can treat up to 650 sq feet for up to 45 continuous hours on the lowest of the 8 intensity settings.

The HC12W's thoughtful design doesn't stop with a sleek exterior and space saving vase inspired footprint- design is a key element throughout the unit's operation. The unit may be turned on or off via a touch sensitive button located on the front, and remote operation allows the owner to adjust the intensity of humidification via the light weight 'drop' shaped remote. The Luma Comfort HC12W offers visual and audio cues to help indicate the tank's status and the coll mist humidifier's operation level (one of eight.) I was tickled to discover the 'do-rey-me-fa-so-la-te-do' scale like tones of the humidifier's operation. For every level of intensity you go up tone is emitted in the next higher scale, and backwards in tone for decreasing intensity. Check out my Instagram video below!

Each of the HC12W's unique flutes offer a different dispersion of humidity through either a narrow neck or internal guides that help break up the flow of the mist's direction.Standing at almost 4', at it's tallest assembly, the highest humidity level rose over 5' in the air and dispersed into the atmosphere well before falling. With several hours use on medium-high we noticed a little moisture in the basin of the unit's collection pan (house internally) and a fine layer on nearby plant's leaves. It certainly wasn't enough to alarm us or pose a damage threat.

While my inclination of the design and 650 sq ft treatment capacity, says that the Luma Comfort HC12W cool mist humidifier would be best visually suited by a fire place or high traffic area, this humidifier would be equally great in a master bedroom or nursery. So many modern nurseries are going with a crisp, clean, design and the HC12W would look amazing next to a rocking chair n a chevron rug! Currently the HC12W is sold online through the Luma Comfort website, Amazon, and other fine retailers, so order yours now in time for the holiday season. The brand is always innovating something new in home comfort so also be sure to follow them on Facebook, where they even share seasonal and home living content!

What Daughter Says: Great technology doesn't take away from great decor. Don't compromise, choose modern comforts that are practical and stylish.

  1. I have to write that my first thought upon seeing the steam was I Dream of Jeannie! It is a far more attractive design than most humidifiers - that's for sure. They are usually ugly as all get out and this one is not. It's very dry here in Montana too.

    ReplyDelete
  2. I agree with you about So Cal air. It is so drying to the nose and skin most of the year. But other than that, we have it great here. This looks like the perfect humidifier for use here. Not too big and looks good too.

  3. Okay so I am super mad that my first comment totally didn't count! Anyway....What is the difference between a cold and hot air humidifier? I have been searching for one...but none of them are gorgeous!!!

    1. There are two types of cool mist humidifiers- the ultrasonic is the quietest (in general)- additionaly, warm mist can tend to offset the atmosphere's general temperature minutely, as they put off heat to distribute the moisture.

    2. This is beautiful! I wish I had it now as I am plugged up and wheezing to boot!

  29. In addition to this very attractive humidifier would like to try the Like Comfort HC12B for evaporative cooling.Living in a pretty war NYC apartment with steam heat makes it very important to have a good humidifier for breathing and healthy skin.Also good for my wood furniture.

    ReplyDelete
  30. The Luma Comfort HCW10B humidifier is one that I'd like to try out with the options for cool or warm mist. The warm mist is a good option to have to open up my sinuses and the cool mist for when it is just the dry air giving me dry skin.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I meant the Lima comfort ec110s as theadditional product I would like to try,evaporative cooling for spring and summer sound good.

  50. Oh I need this desperately! I have a medical condition that makes me have to steam shower4-5 times a day & this would make it less & oh it is so pretty too. My nose/sinuses would love you guys lol.

    ReplyDelete
  51. As I have aged, my eyes and sinuses are so dry. I now need a humidifier to be comfortable inside during winter months. This humidifier is so unexpected looking. It's about time someone thought of a way to integrate this type of convenience into a room without looking like something from a hospital intensive care unit.

    ReplyDelete
  52. its beautiful! need one for when the boys are sick.

    ReplyDelete
  53. This is a very sleek and stylish humidifier. I could really use this since my sinuses are always dry, giving me many headaches. It would look great in any room of my house and is just what I need.

  54. Both my husband and little girl have bad seasonal allergies, so I'd love one of the air purifiers they carry. I'm sure I'd enjoy the fresher air, too :) Lol!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I live in New Orleans and it get so darn hot here, sometimes it's unbearable. I would love to have one of the Luma Comfort MF 18W 18" Misting Fans. That misting fan would feel so good on a hot summer day.

    ReplyDelete
  56. This is so genius. Finally something to help that looks beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love this.. would help my dry skin!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love the design. It would likely fit in the decor of any of the rooms in my house. It would be the kind of thing that didn't call attention to it, but also was asked about when it was noticed. I would love to have this in my home, since I have two boys and a husband that are constantly sick with respiratory illnesses throughout the winter. Recently, our cool mist humidifier broke, and since then, my home has been a symphony of sniffles. Getting one of these would not only stop the sniffles, it would make my children, and mommy, able to sleep easier.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I not sure the design is so different but I kind a like it. New apartment and I need something like this

  60. Interesting product. I'd love to try it

  73. I would love an air purifier, but the evaporative cooler sounds intriguing. It would be great for those in between times when you don't want to turn on the air conditioner. Or when it's not quite hot enough to justify turning it on, but it's still hot!
