Question

Does the SCM1100 humidifier require a humidifier enhancement tablet to operate ?

I read some reviews where someone commented that he couldn't use the SCM1100 because he didn't have any tablets... Is this true ?
There were no tablets of any kind in the box with the unit...

Tap water will work fine. You should never use boiled or hot water in a cool mist humidifier, it can cause it to malfunction.

No you won't see any type of mist coming from this type of humidifier. This is a "Cool Mist" humidifier, if you are looking for a humidifier that puts out a "mist" you should look for a "warm mist" type humidifier. Hope this helps!

Hi Betsy, I have had this Sunbeam humidifier running now for about a week and no it does not put out or produce any type of "dust" that I can see. It works great and would really recommend it for a small room like a bedroom. It comes with one filter and you can purchase a 2 pack of filters here on Walmart.com, item Sunbeam SF212PDQT2-WM Humidifier Filter, 2pk. Hope this helps!

Generally no, mold and mildew require it to be damp in the room, if it's damp in the room you do not need a humidifier. Using this properly you should never have an issue with mold or mildew, just don't stick it in a closet and leave it running, though the size of the water tank would really prohibit the amount of moisture anyways.

Question

how long does a filter last?

I just bought this today but I am having buyer's remorse. I realized after i bought it that it uses a filter and i know there are ones out there that dont need a filter (but the initial cost is higher.) I saw on the internet where the filters for this one cost about $10. i guess that would be fine if it was once or twice a year thing but if i have to replace the filter weekly or monthly then i dont think i will be able to afford it. i probably will only be running it during the winter when the air inside is the most dry.

Hi Leslie, I don't know if this will help but you can extend the life of your filter by removing the water tank, emptying the tray and rinsing off the filter under hot running water every 4 or so days. The instructions say with this humidifier to empty it every day but I think that is a little excessive. I also every cleaning put a "pump" of anti-bacterial soap in the well that the filter fits in to kill any bacteria that may want to build up in the filter. Not sure if it works but guess it can't hurt. You can purchase the filters in a 2 pack here at Walmart, item Sunbeam SF212PDQT2-WM Humidifier Filter, 2pk for about $14 and those should take you thru the winter season. Hope this helps!

Yes, the water can be aimed in one direction, and it usually does not leave any sort of notice that this unit has been used, such as a puddle.
