The 6 Best Humidifiers of 2024

[adinserter block=”2″]

The best humidifier releases gradual, consistent moisture throughout a room, making you feel healthier and more comfortable. And it doesn’t require constant maintenance or leave dank puddles of dew to dapple everything you own. Sounds simple, right? You’d be surprised how hard it is to find.

After testing dozens of humidifiers over the years, we think the Wi-Fi–enabled Levoit LV600S Smart Hybrid Ultrasonic Humidifier is close to that ideal: It’s quiet, durable, and easier to deal with overall than any other humidifier we’ve tested, with a 1.5-gallon tank that will last all day.

Our pick

The Levoit LV600S is powerful, quiet, and easy to clean, and it offers Wi-Fi connectivity and warm-mist capabilities. Plus, it’s the rare ultrasonic model that won’t over-humidify your room.

The Levoit LV600S Smart Hybrid Ultrasonic Humidifier does everything right: It’s low-maintenance and easy to clean, and it humidifies the air quickly and (almost) silently. It’s also one of the only ultrasonic humidifiers we’ve tested that can stop itself before it turns your room into a dangerously murky haze. The top-filling tank is large enough to last all day, and it doesn’t have any annoying corners or crevices for funky things to fester in. The onboard controls—including warm-mist capabilities—are simple and straightforward, and the robust smart-home features offer more-customized control. This machine is still susceptible to some of the usual ultrasonic flaws, however, including a tendency (if you have hard or well water) to leave a trail of fine mineral dust on the furniture or floor. But this is harmless and simple to clean.


The Levoit Classic 300S is just as powerful and reliable as our top pick, but you need the app to use its features to the fullest. It does come with a nice built-in night-light, though.

The Levoit Classic 300S Ultrasonic Smart Humidifier performs nearly as well as our top pick. And it also has a lot of the same features, including a top-filling tank (which holds 1.5 gallons of water) and smart-home capabilities that help prevent it from over-humidifying the room. It also adds a pleasant night-light feature (which is also easy to turn off when you need to). But the user interface isn’t quite as intuitive, and we’ve also heard some complaints about the tank leaking when it’s lifted off the basin.

Budget pick

A simple, straightforward humidifier with smart-home capabilities and a built-in night-light, the Dreo HM311S is also one of the rare ultrasonics that won’t over-humidify your room.

The Dreo HM311S Smart Humidifier is a simple and attractive humidifier that does the job well without costing too much. The top-fill tank and basin are both streamlined, with smooth surfaces that make them easy to clean. And its basic “auto” setting actually works to prevent it from over-humidifying the room. The rest of the onboard controls are also easy enough to figure out—including the built-in night-light (a nice touch that makes this model a particularly good choice for a children’s nursery). If you need more-customized control, the Dreo HM311S offers smart-home capabilities as well. The 4-liter tank is slightly smaller than those of our other picks, however, and the overall construction doesn’t feel quite as durable (a 30-month warranty is available).

Also great

This energy-smart evaporative model isn’t quite as easy to use as our top pick, but it’s great at keeping the humidity consistent and distributing it around the room.

The Vornado EVDC300 Energy Smart Evaporative Humidifier is the most energy-efficient humidifier we’ve ever tested, thanks to its unusual DC motor. It’s also the most consistent, with a powerful fan that keeps the humidified air circulating evenly around the room. Unlike our other picks, the EVDC300 is an evaporative model, which means it’s better at self-regulation. But it also requires a little more maintenance, including regular replacement of the wicking filter. It’s louder than our other picks, too, though we find the fan’s white noise to be rather pleasant. If anything goes wrong, this model has the best warranty we’ve seen on any humidifier—five years for the basic machine, plus 10 years for the motor.

Upgrade pick

A self-regulating ultrasonic with an extra-large tank and warm-mist capabilities, the Vornado UH200 is a great choice for larger spaces that need even humidification.

The Vornado UH200 Ultrasonic Humidifier is a self-regulating ultrasonic that provides more consistent humidification than any of our other picks (with the exception of the Vornado EVDC300, which is just as good). The UH200 is specifically designed for larger rooms (up to 900 square feet), with a 1.75-gallon tank—nearly twice the size of the tanks on our other picks. So you won’t need to refill this one as often. But it works just as well—and just as evenly—in smaller spaces, too. It’s also one of the only models we recommend with warm-mist capabilities. However, this one is louder than our other ultrasonic picks, thanks to the powerful fan that makes it so good at moving humidified air around the room. If anything goes wrong, the UH200 is backed by Vornado’s five-year warranty, one of the longest we’ve seen for any humidifier.

Upgrade pick

The Venta LW25 is pricey, but it’s an exceptional performer with a unique design that requires less-frequent cleaning and refilling than competitors.

The Venta LW25 Original Humidifier is the most low-maintenance humidifier we’ve found, requiring less-frequent cleaning and refilling than our other recommendations. It uses significantly less energy, too, and it has a larger tank than any of our other picks. It is notably more expensive, however. And despite the “air washing” claims in the packaging, this machine doesn’t actually wash or clean the air in any meaningful way. (If that’s a concern for you, consider getting an air purifier.)
