Other great features include: Washable air filter under the base doubles as aroma oil pad. Night light can be turned on for children's room. Has an air cleaning feature with ion generator. Will auto shut off if water runs out.
Remote control is included but it is not necessary for operation. It requires CR2025 battery which is not included.
*Note - The 360 degree nozzle fits tightly. It is easier to move once mist has flowed through it. You can pull it out by pulling up on the outlet and then reinserting in the direction you desire. If it is still too difficult, you can push it out from the backside with an object such as a pen or pencil.
Quoted from Consumer Reports: " Dry air can cause dry eyes, itchy throat, dry skin and even furniture damage. Ideally, indoor humidity should be 30 to 50 percent. But without humidification assistance, that level can drop to 10 percent in winter. Cold air holds less moisture and dries out even more when heated by furnaces or wood fires. Having too much moisture in the air is just as bad as having too little, and that can cause condensation on your windows or worse. Too much moisture can also cause mold to develop. That's why we recommend buying a humidifier with a humidistat that shuts off the unit when it reaches a preset humidity level. Due to risk of burns, some pediatricians caution against using warm mist units near children."
