The Dyson AM10 Humidifier: Puts Humidity Where It Belongs -- in the Air and Not on Your Floor! Listen to this article

When your Dyson AM10 Humidifier is operating properly, you’ll feel a definite change in the quality of the air that you are breathing and living in; I noticed the benefits after only a day or two — not only did my hair feel less dry and staticky, my throat wasn’t as dry, and I could breathe better at night. We are in prime allergy season right now, so I’m absolutely grateful for anything that can help.

1-Dyson Humidifier in Action

Two things that are perfect together: a wood-burning stove and the Dyson AM10 Humidifier!

I like that the Dyson can run for up to 18 hours on a single fill;

The dirty secrets of humidifiers: Despite their possible health benefits, existing humidifiers can be unhygienic. Since they don’t treat the water, bacteria in the tank can be transmitted directly into the room, where it can be inhaled. In addition, many don’t distribute humidified air evenly around the room – meaning you don’t feel the benefit.

Dyson’s patented technology:

Unlike other humidifiers, which can harbor and spread bacteria, every drop of water in the Dyson humidifier is exposed to an ultraviolet light – twice, killing 99.9% of bacteria in the water.

A humidifier can provide many benefits no matter what the season, but so many people have either been burned by puny humidifiers that don’t make a real difference in a large room’s air quality, or crappy humidifiers that work well for a few days and then start spitting water on the floor. The Dyson AM10 is powerful, effective, and it produces real results.

The Dyson AM10 Humidifier retails for $499.99 (includes a two-year warranty on partslabor), and it is available directly from the manufacturer as well as from other retailers including Amazon [affiliate link]. It comes in the following color combinations: white & silver, iron & blue, and black & nickel.

What I Like: Easy to fill and operate; A perfect, fine mist is disbursed into the air of your room (no puddles on your floor); Easy to take apart for cleaning; Can run continuously for up to 18 hours; Looks great in any home; Produces results that you can feel!

What Needs Improvement: I haven’t found any issues with the humidifier, and I have been using it for several weeks
