A Guide To Whole House Humidifier Maintenance

Written by

As the dry, cold weather arrives in West Haven, CT, and neighboring communities, you may find it necessary to turn on your whole house humidifier.  A humidifier can help make the winter air much healthier and more comfortable. Like your furnace and air conditioner, a whole house humidifier needs regular maintenance to ensure it is operating at peak efficiency. 


Here's what to do:


  1. Check the Drain Line. Ensure the line is clean and free of clogs. Over time, minerals and algae can build up and obstruct the line.

  1. Replace the Media Panel. The media panel, or water panel, works by mixing water with the flow of hot air from the furnace. Most manufacturers recommend replacing the panel at least twice a season. If you allow the media panel to stay in the humidifier for too long, it will reduce the performance of the unit and potentially harbor unhealthy mold and bacteria.

  1. Clean the Humidifier’s Fan. Also, clean off the fan’s intake vent and enclosure.

  1. Inspect The Solenoid Valve. The solenoid valve allows water to flow to the humidifier. When the unit is operating, ensure the the valve is opening and that water is flowing.

Finally, when the warm weather returns in the spring, remember to turn off the humidifier and discard the used media panel.
