How to Clean Humidifiers for Peak Performance

1 minute read

A good humidifier cleaning can help keep your unit running smoothly! To ensure your AprilAire Whole-House Humidifier is in proper working order, follow these steps to learn how to clean humidifiers.

Use a Clean Humidifier Filter

Your unit’s water panel is essential to increasing the moisture level in your home and should be replaced regularly to allow your AprilAire Whole-House Humidifier to function at its highest potential.

Check Your Unit’s Reservoir

As part of your humidifier cleaning routine, clean out your tank every three weeks with frequent use. Simply add mild soap and water to a bucket and gently scrub down the tank. Rinse it thoroughly and let it air dry before putting it back.

Take Care of Mineral Buildup

Clean any buildup from the orifice, solenoid, and other components of your unit.

Check for Leaks

Leaks and standing water around your unit indicate a problem that should be addressed immediately.

Ensure Balanced Humidity Levels

Mold and overheating can result if there’s too much moisture, while too little moisture can cause dry eyes, chapped lips, and an environment where bacteria and viruses thrive.

For optimal comfort and health, aim for a humidity level between 40–60%.*
