I ordered 2 of these hygrometers. Set side by side, they read 15% different. Neither one has changed it's reading in the 2 weeks they have been sitting there.
It's hard to believe that the humidity hasn't changed even a tiny bit in two weeks.
Even harder to believe that there is 15% difference in the humidity located 2 inches apart.
These hygrometers are completely worthless. don't waste your money.
I bought these because the humidity is very high on the island and I needed to control mold outbreaks. I have since purchased 8 total, to give to friends. I keep 4 in my house and they all read the same when in the same room. Great price! I totally recommend these.
I bought two of these for winter, one for each floor of my house. When I put them on a shelf for storage in the summer after sitting for a couple of weeks one read 60 % the other read 75%. When I called Sunbeam they said they don't recommend putting two side by side. I asked why and they had no answer. THE ANSWER IS THAT IS HOW YOU CAN TELL THEY ARE JUNK.
Although the product is inexpensive it does not stand up very well. It constantly tips over the base is so small that the slightest bump, breeze or stare will cause it to fall over. There are other cheap hygrometers out there. Give the others a try first.
Great product, great price, purchased 2, both work identically and reliably. A must have if you humidify your home!
Wanted a small, easy hygrometer for the bedroom to make sure I wasn't going overboard when using my humidifier. Dust mites love humid environments, and I don't need to make it any more welcoming for them. I tested it right away using the salt in a ziploc method. Registered 75% like it's supposed to. Then put it in my bedroom and an hour later, registered in the comfort zone. It's so small it fits in the palm of your hand. Which I think is good since most hygrometers are with thermometers, and the size of wall clocks and meant for outside. No batteries needed which is a plus as well! Just wish stores in my area carried them.
Very small and light weight plastic, I would not buy again.
My HVAC guy tested it against calibrated equipment and advised me to throw it out.
as my humidity went down this thing went up. completely useless.
works as advertised and it is a constant peace in a house dry with debate on the moisture issue. Good product at a great price. Bill
I was looking for somethng to measure the moisture in my house as I live in the desert and it is very dry here. I run humidifiers when it is not the monsoon season but I still didn't know how much moisture I was getting. this little hygrometer only costs $4 and it is well worth the price. it's very small so you can put it anywhere.
Love the site to store.
inexpensive hygrometer which gives a general idea of humidity levels.
I bought 3 of these and they each have different readings.
Bought three of these worthless things. Each one has a significantly different reading after many hours of sitting side by side. Threw them away. Not even worth the cost of gas to return.
It's not worth anything as it isn't any where close to being accurate
Inaccurate and hasn't changed as a more expensive unit has changed, as has the level reflected by a humidistat connected to the thermostat.
It took about 10 days to be delivered to the store and it came in an enormous box. The staff at the store insisted on opening the box because they felt it was empty.
I'd take it back but that would be too time consuming.
I would not buy again and would not recommend.
I BOUGHT 2 OF THEM THEY ARE NOT ACCURATE AT ALL, I ALREADY HAVE 2 DIGITAL ONES I WANTED A FEW MORE FOR THE BED ROOMS, I BURN WOOD FOR HEAT SO IT GETS VERY DRY IN THE HOUSE I HAVE 2 LITTLE ONE AND NEED TO KEEP THE HUMIDITY UP, WHEN I GOT THE 2 SUNBEAM HYGROMETERS I PUT THEM WITH THE DIGITAL ONES FOR A FEW HOURS AND THEY READ TOTALLY DIFFERENT NOT JUST A LITTLE OFF WAY OFF THE DIGITAL ONES WILL READ 40% THE NEW SUNBEAMS READ 75% WHICH IS IMPOSIBLE, I LIVE IN NEWENGLAND ITS 18 DEGREES OUT AND THE WOOD STVOE IS RAGING ITS IMPOSIBLE TO GET HUMIDITY THAT HIGH, DONT BUY WASTE OF MONEY, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR
Put a few bucks with your money and get a decent one. This thing is a dime store item being sold for 4 bucks. Cheap cheap cheap low quality that's all. The value is zero.
This item works, albiet it was a bit dissapointing to see this TINY item, in a box about 18 in x 12in, by about 8 inches. The item is about 2inches high and one inch wide. Plastic, with a small wafer as the mechanism. It gives some indication of change in humidity, but doubt that it is very accurate. In this part of TX, it is dry dessert, relative hum..about 20% or less. Meter swings from about 15% to 60% depending on how much water I heat. Still, for 3 bucks, it is no great loss. As an indicator.....
