What is the recommended indoor humidity level for homes?According to ASHREA (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration & Air-Conditioning Engineers) a good range is between 30% and 60% relative humidity. A wider range, from a low 25% to a high of 80%, can be acceptable for thermal comfort (your comfort level). It would depend on the type of clothing worn and your level of physical activity.
How can I determine the humidity level in my room?You can measure humidity levels with a relative humidity sensor, usually referred to as a hygrometer.
What is a hygrometer?A hygrometer is a device that measures the amount of humidity in a particular area.
Can I use a humidifier in the same room as an air purifier?Absolutely! In fact, many families choose to do this when a new baby is born, or for seniors.
Can I use Scents/Fragrances in my portable humidifier?Typically - Yes. Double check with the manufacturer of your unit to be extra sure. We recommend using “Splash Scents” Humidifier Fragrances. Simply add to the water in manually filled evaporative humidifiers. Unlike typical scented candles or plug-in fresheners, the scents work with your humidifier. Humidity and a refreshing scent are carried throughout the house.
What is the average life of a wick filter?This highly depends on usage, and the hardness of your water. At the minimum, we recommend you replace your filter every 2-4 months.
Why is the wick filter turning a light brown color?As long as the wick is still wet all the way through and water usage is normal, the wick is still good. Wick filters help to trap impurities that are in the water. The more impurities and minerals are trapped, the more the filter will change color.
Can I re-use a wick filter?No, you cannot reuse your wick filters; they are used to trap impurities in the water and therefore, the wick filters should be discarded - typically every 2-4 months.
Can the quality of my water affect the life of my filter?
- Absolutely, the harder your water is, the shorter the life of the filter. If you have very hard water, your filters will probably need to be changed more frequently.
- Hard water may turn your filter brown.
