This Spring, the weather has been so changeable. Yesterday was warm t-shirt weather, but today we need to bundle up. That also means that the heat is back on. Without the humidity in the air inside our home, we’re plagued with patchy dry skin, nose bleeds, and we’re constantly getting shocked every time we hit the lightswitch.
We stopped using humidifiers months ago because we got tired of the gunk that would accumulate at the base. Plus, they tend to be noisy eyesores, and who needs that?
Enter the Stadler Form Anton humidifier. The first thing you’ll notice is how bright and cheery it is in this “Honeycomb” shade. It’s also available in white, black, azzurro (blue), berry (pink) and metal. It’s very sleek looking and adds to the decor in the room. The Anton is fairly compact, shorter than a foot in size.
The unit came with a litmus test that I had to take before using it to determine how hard our water is. If too hard, Stadler Form recommends that you do not use it. It also cannot be used with water that has been treated with a water softener. In either case, you may use distilled water. My test came out fine, and we don’t use a softener, so I was good to go. If you like, essential oils can be used to scent the room or help with ailments in a natural way.
The Anton comes with an anti-calc cartridge that prevents the accumulation of limescale – that gunk I was referring to earlier. The design is very straightforward and easy to clean; it even comes with a little cleaning brush.
I thought this would be fun to keep in the playroom in our basement, since that’s where we have static electricity problems. The controls are on the underside of the unit so as not to take away from the design. You can adjust the light indicator which is perfect for nighttime use, and best of all the Anton is super quiet.
The ANTON is available for about $140 and can be purchased directly from the manufacturer.
