Doubt that Costco or Danby has 4 year old stock/models.

My simple solution that works amazing is:

* floor mat (usually $25 on sale at canadian tire.. I use this one).
* clothes drying rack ($25 on sale at canadian tire)
* simple fan ($25 at canadian tire or amazon)
* bath towels

So long as you have room for a clothes rack... just wet the bath towels, put them on the drying rack, point the fan at them, done. This produces serious humidity (better than any humidifier I've used). After a few days the towels will get hard (as they trap all the minterals in the water), at which point you can either wash them, or keep using them (they get less absorbent though, so at some point you do have to wash them).

Usually, two towels will give you plenty of humidity, but if you need more just wet more towels and throw them on the rack. Or get a more powerful fan and that will wick the towels faster.

The only downside to this solution is having to have a clothes drying rack in your living environment. But otherwise it's better than any humidifer on the market.
