2 plus gallons will take you to 48 hours in arid climates. 4 weeks of continuous operations and no problems. Fan on "HIGH" is audible around the room. However the output is on high as well, and not really needed.

This is by far the best humdifier I have ever purchased. In the past the humidifier was either too small and didn't put out enough, or the bigger ones were so messy, very hard to clean and leaked all over the floor. I love that this gives you the option of cool or warm mist. We have a very large bedroom with a Cathedral ceiling so we needed something that would work and have little to no sound and this one is very quiet. I honestly can't find anything negative about it. The controls are easy to use and the appliance does kick on and off at the humidity level I selected. The product is very well made and I think worth every penny, especially when I compare it to all of the other ones I have purchased and pitched out. I just threw out two whole house humidifiers due to; nearly impossible to clean, loud and have soaked my carpet time and time again. I highley recommend this product!

Better than the rest
I looked everywhere for a humidifier that would work for my whole apt (1200 sq ft). I wanted one that you could adjust, that would run quietly, that was easier to handle than my last one, and one that was easy to clean. My boyfriend found this one on this website and the price was good, plus it had all of the other features I was looking for. I received it within a few days (faster than I expected!) and have LOVED it from the start.
**It is small and can easily be out-of-the-way in my kitchen (centrally located in my apt so it can actually reach all rooms).
**It is QUIET even on the high setting. (For those who left reviews saying this is loud...If this is loud then I can't imagine what you folks are looking for in terms of quiet-running--this is very unintrusive, in fact my air purifier makes more noise than this by far (and it's at the other end of the apartment).
**I've read the other reviews of this product on a number of sites. I have this to say: yes, this will leak if you put it on carpeting (uneven surface) which shouldn't shock anyone if you read the directions and think about it (for the record, mine never leaked and there is a test you are supposed to do before fully loading the unit anyway--so the company realizes that cracking may happen in shipping and they've allowed for that.
**This is easy to clean--there are no special cleaners to use (just vinegar) and I don't have to worry about pouring in some "cleaner" to keep the mold down which I'm then breathing in (that can't be good).
**I was a little concerned about the mineral cartridge, but so far, so good. It's no mess and no fuss. And, they are cheap to replace. I bought an extra one when I purchased the humidifier. And, I haven't noticed any white dust. I've used mine for over 4 months now.
**Filling the unit isn't difficult, but when the water reservoir is full is can be a little unwiedly (elderly may have some trouble manuvering it), but that's still 4 stars.
**I didn't notice any huge change in my electric bill, at least nothing more than a few cents which was expected. So, it is as energy efficient as any.
**As far as using this for my whole apartment--it works. Don't get me wrong, the humidity at the far end of the apartment is not as high as rooms closer to the unit, but it keeps my hands and nose from cracking/bleeding. MN winters are no joke. :-)
So, if you were looking for a good humidifier, look no further. You'll be happy with this one.
