Boneco/Air-O-Swiss 7142 Dual Mist Humidifier
As one of the digital Boneco/Air-O-Swiss humidifiers, the 7142 Ultrasonic Digital Warm and Cool Mist Humidifier combines top of the line humidification with the ease of state of the art electronic and automatic controls. Like other Air-O-Swiss digital humidifier models, the 7142 features electronic controls with an LCD screen, yet where this humidifier differs is in the Air-O-Swiss Intelligent Temperature Compensation (ITC).
Just as many modern appliances will function based on their surrounding environment, so too will the Boneco 7142. This humidifier will adjust mist output based on the temperature of the room. This works to maintain a comfortable humidity level with little worry or supervision. This automatic functionality is great for asthma and allergy sufferers on the go or anyone who wants a constant relative humidity level without having to spend a lot of time monitoring it. This model also has dual warm mist and cool mist capabilities, so whatever your preference, the BONECO/AIR-O-SWISS 7142 humidifier can meet your needs.

I couldn't make up my mind and have a good size house to cover so I bought both this one and the S450 steam unit. I put the 450 in the bedroom and this in the front room. I can't use tap water as I HATE the white dust & don't use the hydrocell as I noticed a funky smell when I started using it. I now use RO water thank goodness we have big tanks, no demineralization cartridge & no hydrocell. Now I have no dust & no funny smell. I do have to wash the unit out a little bit more but can handle that over the dust. Only took the humidity up from 25 to 33 over a months time but it is a much bigger area than recommended for.
- Work great
I had my Air O Swiss 7142 for 3 years. It works great not only does it help the air in the house but also keeps my hibucus blooming during the winter. I can see a big difference in my allegy since I started using this.

What I like about the Boneco/Air-O-Swiss 7142 Humidifier
Easily, the best features of the Boneco 7142 are the full electronic controls. With a digital LCD display, setting this humidifier is hassle free. From the control panel you can turn the unit on/off, select a humidity level and mist output, set the timer, choose between warm mist and room temperature mist, set sleep or auto modes, and determine when the tank is empty as well as when the humidifier needs to be cleaned.
Tank capacity is another area where the 7142 excels. You can put a full 2 gallons of water in the tank, instead of 1.5 or 1.75 gal. This doesn't seem like a whole lot more, but you'll notice the difference in how often you have to fill this model vs. other ultrasonic humidifiers. Filling an ultrasonic is never as easy as a top-fill evaporative models, so anything that reduces the number of times you have to fill your humidifier is a big plus.
Quiet operation is also another hallmark of this model. It's quiet enough that it won't disturb light sleepers, and even when your home is completely silent the most you hear is a low hum and the occasional gurgle of water.
Air-O-Swiss has done a great deal over the years to improve hygiene. From a Hydro Cell that uses activated carbon to adsorb impurities and a demineralization cartridge to remove hard water minerals to ionic silver embedded in the demineralization cartridge shell and preheating the water to destroy microbes, the 7142 has an array of features to keep the water as clean as possible. This not reduces the chance of putting things you don't want back into the air but also works to extend the life of the humidifier.
Lastly, and certainly not least, the output of this unit is higher than most other Boneco humidifiers. While the majority of ultrasonic humidifiers humidify approximately 600 sq. ft., the 7142 Ultrasonic will cover up to 860 sq. ft. Again, these humidifiers are most effective with open floor plans and large rooms with good air circulation. While I never take manufacturer stated coverage at face value, this model is certainly better than average.What I do not like about the Boneco/Air-O-Swiss 7142 Humidifier
Once you know the controls, using this humidifier can be a cinch. Getting familiar with them... is another story. Luckily the user manual gives you a simple break down of all of the features and buttons, so in no time at all, you can be enjoying the benefits of a fully digital humidifier.
This unit is a little larger than other Air-O-Swiss humidifiers (mainly taller), so make sure you provide yourself with stable base to place this unit.Overall, the Boneco/Air-O-Swiss 7142 humidifier is a great fit for nearly any home, and the style/design gives this home appliance a stylish and sleek appearance. It is versatile and provides a wide range of levels and features that make it a great in most homes where dry indoor air is causing problems. The larger tank cuts down on refill frequency, and the output is strong enough to bring even the driest space back to being comfortable.
