The Air-O-Swiss AOS S450 Humidifier incorporates a variety of high-tech features that customizes operation to fit your needs. The in-built hygrostat allows the user to set desired humidity level. There are 3 operating modes to choose from – Auto mode for hassle free automatic humidity, ECON or the economy mode for the most efficient and energy-saving option, and Manual mode for complete customized control over humidity level and speed.

As soon as the room attains the desired humidity level, the humidifier automatically shuts off and runs periodically  to maintain your setting while saving valuable energy.

The in-built Auto-Cleaning mode eases the task of cleaning the device. Once you select the mode, the humidifier starts to decalcify and automatically cleans itself. The Anti-Mineral Pad consumes a large part of the resulting lime scale while in operation and reduces excessive calcification of the steam tray as well as the frequency of necessary decalcification.
