A humidifier is one of the simple and effective ways to control and manage your indoor humidity levels. Mostly, people use them to protect their nose and skin from the effects of dry air. However, the additional moisture in the air, also helps with mold prevention. In this blog are some helpful tips for operating a humidifier.
You Allow Your Water To Accumulate
If you’re not going to be using your humidifier for a significant amount of time, you should definitely empty the water tank. Allowing the water to remain in the tank increases your chances of bacteria growth that can spread in the atmosphere when you use your unit.
Increasing Your Humidity Levels
In cold weather, humidity control is critical, but you should ensure indoor levels do not increase. The most significant risk of low indoor humidity levels in winter season is the formation of excess moisture and mildew around your windows.
Your Water Is Not Purified
When using humidifiers, make every effort to utilize filtered water. Your tap water may be safe to drink, but it is unlikely to work in your humidifier. This is due to high mineral content within tap water. These minerals will accumulate in your humidifier over time, allowing hazardous germs to grow in your home.
