Description

You can use the Philips HU4816/10 to humidify a room up to 40 square meters. This cool mist humidifier has a 4-liter water tank, which allows you to humidify a space for up to 26 hours without refiling the tank. Is the water tank finally empty? In that case, the humidifier switches itself off automatically. To make sure the humidity is up to standard, you can choose from 3 humidity percentages: 40%, 50%, and 60%. You can use night mode to continue sleeping while the humidifier is on. In addition to improving the air quality, Philips also wanted to improve the durability of the device. With that in mind, the exterior is made from 90% recycled material and the manual consists of recycled paper.

To use the humidifier optimally, you need to replace the FY2402 humidifying filter every 6 months.

    The HU4803 makes me a better person.

    Iris Smulders | 20 September 2018 | In the version: Hygrometer | Night mode | Up to 25m² | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Very quiet
    • User friendly
    • Intuitive

    From crispy raisins to shiny grapes.

    Reason for purchase
    Before, I had to manually pull my eyelids apart every morning, the air in my bedroom was so dry. I suffered from a dry throat, dry skin, headaches and therefore extremely dry eyes. I have 7 plants in my bedroom, all of which should increase the humidity/oxygen levels, but unfortunately my green friends don't quite do their job. They also looked a bit grumpy.

    Installation
    When unpacking, the HU4803 reminded me a bit of an AirFryer, but I love chips so that's not a big deal.
    Without consulting the manual, I filled the humidifier with water (super handy notch for the faucet) and turned it on.
    The beautiful blue numbers indicated that the humidity in my bedroom (approx. 19 square meters) was 39%. Now there could be a deviation of 10%, so that could have been even lower.
    Not extremely low per se, but enough to turn me into a kind of crispy raisin.

    Usage
    You really don't need an IQ of more than 2 digits to set up the humidifier. All buttons speak for themselves. I put it on max, 60% and went to the gym. When he returned, he was already at 59%!
    Before I got into bed, I set it to sleep mode and didn't notice it making noise until it stopped. Didn't wake me up at night.

    Result
    I noticed a difference after just one night. I slept soundly and when I woke up I didn't need a jack to open my eyes. I looked in the mirror and saw my skin glowing and glowing like a fine Riesling grape. Even my plants seemed a lot happier. Need I say more?

    Disadvantage
    The black version is more expensive. I love black, but also money, so I chose the white/oyster colored one.
    I'm not fond of the design, but I actually think all humidifiers are quite ugly and then this is the best choice in this price range in my opinion.

    Good device for increasing the humidity

    F.V. | 2 February 2016 | In the version: Hygrometer | Night mode | Up to 25m² | Automatically translated from Dutch

    I often suffered from nosebleeds/a stuffy nose when waking up in combination with dry eyes and throat. Now that I have been using this Philips humidifier for a while, these irritating complaints have all disappeared.

    Reception: The humidifier comes in a box containing some cardboard and the instructions for use. Immediately I noticed how big, but also beautiful this device actually is.

    Usage: I immediately turned on the humidifier and went through all the options accessible with the four different buttons around the humidifier's display. Everything works very simply and is self-explanatory.

    The reservoir holds about two liters of water. In the beginning, when the humidity in my room was still low, the reservoir had to be refilled after about 15 hours. But now that the humidifier really only needs to maintain the humidity, it lasts about 2.5 days. It is a pity that the filter has to be replaced every 3 months.

    I actually only have the humidifier on automatic mode during the day, where it keeps the humidity at a constant level, and on night mode at night, where it produces virtually no noise. I never wake up at night these days, and when I wake up I can breathe freely and my airways don't bother me.

    In short: The device looks nice, but don't be fooled by the size. The device does its job very well and is able to combat various physical complaints. Before purchasing this product, please realize that filters will also have to be purchased in the future.

    Should I have bought sooner?

    • large fan
    • Relatively quiet
    • Feels solid
    • The blue LEDs you _NEVER_ want in a bedroom.
    • Top up more than once a day

    For the record; square meters has nothing to do with humidification. What matters is the amount of ventilation. Small calculation;

    Outside it is 5 degrees Celsius with 70% relative humidity [RH, %]. That corresponds to ~3.8 grams of water per kg of air [X, g/kg] . Inside, this air is heated to 20 degrees Celsius; the X value remains the same at ~3.8 g/kg, but warm air can contain more moisture, so the RH value drops to about 25%.

    The relevant room has mechanical ventilation that extracts 50 cubic meters of air every hour. At 20 degrees Celsius, this corresponds to approximately 60 kg. To get the air at 50% RH at 20 degrees Celsius you have to go to an X of 8.5 g/kg.
    Water is 1 kg/Litre.

    How much should you add via a humidifier? 60 kg per hour * (8.5-3.8) = 282 grams of water.

    Conclusion; do you indeed have 50 cubic meters / hour of extraction ... well, then you will not reach the 50% with only (persons also give moisture to the air) this device. For example, if you only have 20 cubic meters per hour of extraction, yes, then you can probably achieve 50% RH.

    The amount of mL per hour that this device helps into space is given as a single value, but that is a huge simplification. More water evaporates if the unused capacity (X,max - X,current) is greater. So it's a kind of self-inhibiting effect.

    Coolblue's 0.15 L/hour specification can be achieved. In practice, it achieves 0.14 L / hour for me, if you heat it just a bit warmer and/or the air is slightly drier outside, then that 0.15 can still be exceeded.

    The above simply explains most of the mixed reviews about humidifiers in general.

    Anyone who can calculate this themselves can search on; "h-x diagram air".

    Then the second clarification; this device is touted as energy efficient, which is absolutely true. However, the evaporation of the water costs energy, this energy is extracted from the air, which therefore becomes colder. So your heating has to work harder to keep it at the same temperature. This can be partly compensated by setting the thermostat a little lower, which is also possible while maintaining comfort because increasing the humidity increases the perceived temperature.

    As for my own experience with this device; If you run it continuously on 'high', the water tank is too small to last 24 hours. However, a larger tank would have other drawbacks.
    The higher humidity works wonders in terms of irritation to the respiratory tract and eyes. Dried out lips are also a thing of the past. Static electricity also decreases. Delicious! I should have bought this thing a few years ago.
    What is regrettable, however, are the blue status LEDs on top. Hi Philips... you recommend this product for the bedroom, what should I do with blue LEDs? Fortunately, the top is such that you can put a sock (or something similar) on top. Alternatively, you can of course also run the black marker over the diamonds above the LEDs.

    In terms of futuristic design, this thing fits well with a Philips Wake-up light.

    Great product from Philips
    • Very quiet
    • Beautiful design
    • Extremely effective
    • Good humidity in the house
    • Good for your health

    In the meantime bought my 2nd device for the bedroom. Very good experience with the device and maintains the humidity well. I've had it running all year round and it's a great purchase for me. Pay close attention to the filter and, if it is brown in color and has some limescale, leave it in water for an hour and then rinse it out. DO NOT wring out due to damage to the filter cloth. This way the filter can last for a long time, but replace it at least annually.

    I have had the Philips humidifier HU4803 at home for 3 weeks.
    For years I have suffered from dry and irritated eyes, dry skin, always sniffing.
    But after using the HU4803 for a few days, I clearly noticed a difference. Less bothered by irritated eyes, the snorting a lot less. I was also sneezing a lot less when I was in bed at night. At first I didn't really believe it, so I didn't wear the device for almost a week. To make sure it wasn't something else (weather, my health, the flu epidemic, etc.) But the 3rd week it was immediately noticeable that we had less problems with dry skin and the itching that comes with this. takes. I'm all over!!! I might even buy a 2nd one, so that I don't have to drag the device up and down :D but that's actually a luxury problem.

    I wouldn't want to be without it anymore.

    The device is very easy to use. You fill it with water to the maximum and set it as you want. Different humidity percentages, different ventilation modes and or a night mode. Every time I put fresh water in, I rinse the filter. That way I can be sure that clean air is blown into the room.
    Advantages
    It works perfectly
    Few actions required
    Automatic moisture regulation
    Low noise (and I'm quite a whiner when it comes to noise)
    Less dry skin
    Less irritation to the eyes
    Practically no more sniffing

    Cons
    To have to put something down Â….
    The night mode. All LEDs except 1 are dimmed in this position. But for me this is that the whole room is still lit. So I put a piece of tape over it. This is a more common problem with Philips products that I have in the bedroom. Such as an alarm clock and a Wakeup light. These all have a dim setting, but the entire room is always lit by this.

    Simple worker but with nano technology
    • Simple to use
    • Unobtrusive appearance
    • Two positions
    • Nano technology
    • Low energy consumption
    • Only small space
    • Softly, not quietly
    • Replace filter (€17) every 3 months
    • Top up water 2x a day
    • Does not filter pollen

    The device appears to be working fine. Sound on low setting is just soft enough to sleep next to. Maintenance is simple but fairly intensive, top up with water 2 to 3 times a day, clean the machine every 2 weeks including filter in the vinegar, new pricey filter every 3 months. Not suitable for rooms larger than 18m3. Still suffer from dry mouth and dry eyes when standing up. Also consider, for example, the more expensive Philips HU4803/01, this model is very simple.

    Great device

    We have been using this humidifier for a week now and we are very satisfied. Our house is very dry, especially in winter, with all kinds of ailments as a result, including. dry red eyes and a lot of sneezing. The humidifier ensures that the ailments are greatly reduced. We have it in the living room during the day and in the bedroom at night. The device is very easy to operate and has a clear display. In addition, it is really whisper quiet. We strongly recommend the device
