Nebraska winters are long and dry. If your furnace doesn’t come with a built-in humidity feature then you need to be using a humidifier in your home. Over the years, I have gone through a pretty substantial collection of humidifiers. I am obsessed with keeping my skin hydrated during winter!
Last year, I bought a Canopy humidifier after listening to Lauryn Bosstick rave about hers. I had heard her talking about this humidifier for a few years before I finally caved. After using it religiously for 2 winters, I decided it was time to give my opinion on the matter. Let’s dive into my no-BS review of the Canopy humidifier.
What I Love About My Canopy Humidifier
Let’s start with the pros list! Yes, there are cons, nothing is perfect after all. But, spoiler alert, I love this humidifier and you can’t convince me it’s not worth the hype.
Minimal, Sleek Design
It’s clear, most humidifiers are designed by people who don’t actually live in homes, or at least don’t care about the aesthetic. They’re either big and bulky or an odd shape or just plain ugly. That is until now.
The Canopy humidifier features a minimal, sleek design that blends in well with your room. While I still think there’s room for improvement, like maybe a ceramic humidifier, I will take this design over what I’ve seen on the market.
Extremely Easy To Clean
Every piece of this humidifier, except for the piece with the electrical part, can go in the dishwasher. Do I even need to continue? Anything that makes my life easier and one less thing to pile on my cleaning list is a no-brainer.
I know we all have high hopes for getting our shit together and remembering to reorder filters when needed. But it’s time to just let go and let Canopy send them to you on a regular basis.
Because Nebraska is plenty humid in the summer months, we don’t use our humidifiers during that time. It’s super easy to skip shipments when they’re not needed.
Canopy’s anti-mold technology was the selling point for me. A few years ago, when I was pregnant and due in December, I knew I needed to have a humidifier for my baby’s room. But I was so worried about mold and whatever else was floating around in humidifiers getting amplified and my baby breathing it all in. The first time mom anxiety is real.
The Canopy humidifier won’t shut off until all of the water is completely dry in the humidifier. No moisture means no mold. And all new moms can sleep peacefully!
Filling The Water Tank Is A Breeze
I’m a firm believer that all humidifier tanks should be fillable from the top. But I’m sure Canopy has a reason behind their design, I mean they’ve thought of everything else. Overall, filling the Canopy humidifier tank is an absolute breeze.
What I Wish Was Better
Nothing in life is perfect and neither is this humidifier, unfortunately. This is a tough pill to swallow because when I get passionate about something, I don’t want there to be any reason that I can’t convince everyone I know that they need to be obsessed too. But let’s get into it.
I think the price of the Canopy humidifier was the biggest deterrent for me for a long time. I would’ve bought it years before I did if it wasn’t so expensive. And I would put one in every room in my house right now if I could afford to.
Canopy, can we get this down to a solid $80?
Only works in small spaces
I am constantly measuring the level of humidity in Rowen’s room because I am that kind of psycho mom. And I wish this humidifier would work just a little bit harder. (Kind of like the hard work I put into growing a human and now trying to keep her healthy!)
Canopy did recently come out with a larger version of their humidifier, which I will be buying for the new baby’s room, but larger also means more expensive. I digress.
Scent diffusion doesn’t last long
The humidifier came with the Unwind aroma scent which smells heavenly, but I never feel like the room smells that way. The lackluster diffuser has been a common topic among people that use this humidifier.
This isn’t a deal breaker for me because it’s just not that important, but I still wish it was stronger.
Canopy does make a diffuser though. I’ve never tried it but it features the same technology as the humidifier.
Canopy Humidifier Overview
I already said that I freaking love this humidifier, but after listing out all of the pros and cons, I think I’ll only buy the Canopy humidifier plus moving forward. I just think that the extra moisture that it will provide is what I’m missing with my current Canopy humidifier.
But what do you think? Will you try this one out, or have you already? Do you have a humidifier that you love, because it’s not nice to gatekeep, remember?
