In this head to head review, we look at two highly rated humidifiers, the Homasy Humidifier with Anti-Bacterial Stones and the Pure Enrichment MistAire Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier. Featuring aesthetic designs with top class performance, the two cool mist humidifiers offer the best way to keep the air in our rooms moist. What separates the two humidifiers from the rest are the unique health features that improve air quality and remove bacteria and allergens from the air. So, how does the Homasy Humidifier rate against the Pure Enrichment MistAire Humidifier?
The two humidifiers are ultrasonic cool mist humidifiers. As ultrasonic humidifiers, they convert water into mist using high-frequency vibrations. As cool mist humidifiers, they produce cool air and are therefore ideal in very dry conditions, where high moisture output is needed. They are also designed for medium-sized rooms like living rooms, bedrooms and offices.

The Homasy humidifier features three modes, which are adjusted by a single control button that also doubles as an on and off power button. The modes include low mist, moderate mist, and great mist, which are activated by pressing the control button once, twice and three times respectively.
To get to the sleeping mode, the control button is long pressed for 3 seconds. The indicator light will be turned off to keep the room completely dark during sleep. The three modes are listed for different purposes; the low mist is suitable for bedrooms, moderate mist for offices and the great mist for living rooms.
This humidifier also features whisper quiet functionality at all modes. It runs at 28 decibels of noise only, making it one of the quietest humidifiers. The mist nozzle can be adjusted to any direction to direct the mist to areas that need the most moisture.
In addition, the Homasy utilizes a unique stone filter that further filters particulates and micro-sized allergens to ensure the moisture is completely germ-free. The filter is also made from an antibacterial material that prevent bacterial growth in the humidifier. The icing on the cake is a 12-month warranty with a 45 days money back guarantee.
Pure Enrichment MistAire
The MistAire is not as ‘feature-packed’ as the Homasy. However, it holds its own when it comes to relieving the room of dry air. It has two speed settings, high and low for different moisturizing conditions. This humidifier is also operated by one control button that also functions as a power button and a night mode activator. For the night mode, the MistAire switches to a soothing night glow that optimizes relaxation and enhances good sleep.
It also features the whisper quiet functionality and runs without the bubbling or humming sound that is common with most humidifiers. The mist nozzle also swivels to a full 360 degrees allowing you to direct the mist to whichever direction you see fit.
Unfortunately, the MistAire does not include any type of filter like the Homasy. However, the ultrasonic vibrations that convert water molecules to mist have been proven to destroy most of the germ causing organisms. Furthermore, it is ETL listed and certified, which is enough proof that this humidifier is safe for use. It also comes with a two-year warranty as a bonus.
The Homasy humidifier has a 2-liter (approx. 0.5 Gallon) water tank that runs up to 10 hours in low mist setting with a mist output of 160 – 180ml per hour. The tank is labelled to indicate the maximum and minimum levels of water needed for smooth operation. It also features a top refill design that does not require the water tank to be removed. On the other hand, the MistAire has a 1.5 liter water tank that runs up to 16 hours on high mist setting with a moisture output of 150ml per hour. For refilling, the water tanks has to be dislodged and refilled from the bottom.
Safety and Maintenance
As a safety precaution, both humidifiers feature the auto shutoff function that turns off the humidifiers when the water level is low. Also, the auto shutoff functions kicks into action when the Homasy falls down and when the water tank is removed from the MistAire. Both humidifiers also have transparent bodies, which makes it easy to spot dirt build up.
In addition, the MistAire comes with a disk cleaning brush to ensure the system is not contaminated. Maintenance is very simple in both cases, as it only involves washing various parts of both devices. However, make sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when cleaning to avoid damaging the device of your choice.
To be honest, we are conflicted as to which device is better. We were particularly impressed by the top refill feature of the Homasy which is very convenient and fast. The Pure Enrichment MistAire Humidifier is the obvious winner when it comes to runtime.
However, the Homasy has antibacterial properties and also includes a filter to ensure that no allergens make it back to the air. Therefore, the Homasy Humidifier wins by a slight margin. We would like to clarify that the MistAire is a great humidifier and definitely receives our seal of approval.
