The Luma Comfort Vase Humidifier Now Comes in Black!

hc12b-400The Luma Comfort HC12B Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier is an innovative design that combines beauty and functionality. It’s sleek black exterior will suit any home setting in the same functional way that its white counterpart does.

Not only that, the ETL Certified HC12B Vase Humidifier was made to be versatile, with three nozzle height to choose from.

The different heights of the HC12B, according to nozzle size:

  • Small nozzle: 22 ½ inches
  • Medium nozzle: 32 inches
  • Large: 44 inches

The benefits of this versatility is that with the smallest nozzle, the HC12B can be used as a table top vase and not look too tall. The medium range nozzle allows for both floor and table placement, while the tallest nozzle is best for floor placement.


This unit is perfectly suited for medium to large sized rooms.

Tank Capacity & Mist output:

  • Tank holds up to 9.5 pints of water
  • Water tank can last up to 45 hours per fill
  • Covers rooms up to 650 square feet
  • Produces 2.5 gallons of mist/day

What’s great about the tank capacity is that it allows for extended run time. In case you need some night time humidifying, the tank can last you through the night without running out of water. It even has an empty tank indicator.

It should be noted that the tank is not removable in the sense that you can just pop it off and fill it. You have to take apart the model to a degree to access the water filling hole to the tank. This should not be a problem because this design is what makes it unified and elegant.

All kinds of features

With 8 adjustable mist settings, the Luma Comfort HC12B Ultrasonic Humidifier provides versatility to your desired mist output. And with each level of mist output that you set the HC12B to comes a beep. The loudness of the beep corresponds to the level of humidity that you set the unit to.

The ultrasonic technology used in this humidifier vibrates a small metal piece at an ultrasonic frequency. The vibration breaks the water into tiny droplets and the droplets become a mist. The mist is a cool mist that eliminates dryness.

  • Ensures that the flooring, carpet, and furniture that you place your unit next to or on top of will not get too wet or drenched.
  • Less chance of the room feeling too muggy.

Even though the ultrasonic technology uses vibrations to create the mist, the unit is actually pretty quiet. It has a decibel measurement of 35 dB. So once again, you will not need to worry about listening to disruptive noise from the humidifier.

The Luma Comfort HC12B comes with a remote control that is in the same shape as the humidifier itself, which adds a touch of cuteness to the elegance. It allows you to adjust mist settings and to turn the unit on and off.

The humidifier also has a memory setting that automatically sets the humidifier at the last mist output level that you had it on before turning it off. This means that Ii you do not unplug your model after you use it, the unit will turn on to the last mist setting that was used before it was turned off.

The demineralization cartridge helps to prevent lime scale and mineral buildup. It allows for use of hard water without having to worry about depleting the product’s life span as much. Of course, distilled/filtered water is always the preferred way to feed any water-dependent product, but for owners who like things to be easier, the HC12W and HC12B have you covered.

Easy to use

Operation of the Luma Comfort HC12B Ultrasonic Humidifier is very easy. All you have to do is turn it on and press the mist setting buttons to choose which of the eight mist settings you want. Use of the remote allows for better control, as you can choose mist settings by simply pressing the + or – buttons anytime.

Dehumidifying the Bathroom Because of Our Dog

My really good friend, Alanna, recently broke up with her boyfriend. It was one of those relationships where they spent way too much time together and every little thing became an argument. However, it was still tough for her to get over their breakup. They were dating for three years, so for her to become totally independent wasn’t easy. You know the ancient saying “To get over a boy, you need a new one”? Well in her case, to get over her boyfriend, she bought a puppy. Alanna found him on Craigslist for a mere price of $300 and brought him home from the mall. He is a mutt with a mix of a Maltese and a Shih Tzu. At least, that’s what we think he is. His coat is black with a white spot on his chin and stomach, in a way he’s quite similar to a penguin. Alanna named him Taco, and thus began a loving, loyal friendship.


During Taco’s first few weeks of living with us, Alanna trained him to sit, lay, and learn the meaning of the word “no”. The word “no” was regularly being used by Alanna and myself, and it became irritating. Taco misbehaved constantly by biting our skin, jumping on our faces while we were laying down, chewing on shoes, and biting pant-legs. He specifically loved the pant-legs and shoes while we were walking. He’s lucky we never accidently stepped on him. Even though he had just eaten, he would bother Alanna and me as we ate. He also had a horrible habit of stealing our socks from our bedroom floor to add to his collection of toys. He barked loudly and continuously, especially when Alanna left the apartment. Taco had some sort of separation anxiety that reminded me quite a lot of Alanna’s old boyfriend. I remember thinking Taco would never make it out on the streets alone nor be domestically independent. But now he is about six months old, and it amazes me how smart he has become. He was really stupid two months ago. The barking has stopped, he’s a lot calmer, and bites less. He just nibbles these days. The only dreadful thing he still does though is go through the bathroom trash can. He knocks it down, picks out his favorite items, and brings them, along with their germs, into the living room. Gross, I know.

We made the decision to have the bathroom door closed at all times to prevent Taco from going through the trash. Every time we had to use the bathroom or take a shower, we made sure to close the door behind us. However, this led to a different problem. Bathrooms collect a ton of moisture from tubs, showers, and lack of ventilation. Alanna and I take very warm and hot showers, so the room fills up with steam quickly. The walls and ceiling are wet, dripping with water to the floor, and the mirror is foggy. With so much moisture being trapped inside the bathroom after our showers, the bathroom ceiling, wall cracks, and shower curtain started to grow an ample amount of mold.


My first thought to reduce the amount of mold was to buy a shelf. It would be high enough to place our trash can on, and Taco wouldn’t be able to get to it. We would then be able to leave the bathroom door open. I knew it would somewhat help, but it would not be enough. I started researching ways to get rid of bathroom mold, and one of the options was using a dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers reduce the amount of moisture in the air that can lead to mold and mildew. Not only is it bad for your health, but also for your home structure. Floors will creak, furnishings will damage, and musty odors will come arise. After one of our showers, the bathroom has excessive moisture. A dehumidifier sucks in moisture from the air, moves it over cold ice tubes to drip into a bucket, and pushes dry air out. The dry air will mix with the moist air making it drier and drier. We live in Southern California, so the general air in our apartment is already dry. However, homes suffering with high humidity levels can find relief in dehumidifiers instead of living uncomfortably.

I found that there are five items to consider when purchasing a dehumidifier:

  • Why do I need one? Because my bathroom smells and the ceiling is starting to grow moldy friends.
  • What size is the space I need to dehumidify? 50-100 sq ft.
  • What is the humidity level? Humidity of 50%+
  • How will I have to maintain it? Does it include a washable and removable tank? How will I have to drain the water?
  • Do I require any special features? Portability, automatic shut-off, size of water storage tank, price, and brand.

Our bathroom is very small so a mini, portable dehumidifier would work best. Other dehumidifiers would simply not fit into our bathroom. Small dehumidifiers are less expensive to purchase, but still get the job done of pushing out the growth of pests. Dehumidifiers can also be wireless so they don’t need run on power, which is great in case we accidentally leave it running. We hope to be mold free by the summer!
