When you worry about the air quality in your home, you might focus on changing filters or adding an air cleaning device. However, installing a humidifier to improve dry air can be just as important. Some of the benefits of installing a humidifier can include:
- Adds more moisture to indoor air during the winter.
- Increases interior comfort.
- Relieves irritated sinuses.
- Improves dry skin.
- Reduces snoring.
- Prevents your throat from drying out.
- Reducing the risk of cracked lips and nose bleeds.
Common Problems with Humidifiers
Like all appliances and systems in your home, humidifiers will need repairs from time-to-time. Some common problems you might encounter with your humidifier that can require repairs can include:
- Doesn’t produce the right amount of moisture for your home. This can occur when the sponge pad has accumulated too many minerals or if the unit is not level.
- The water inlet is clogged with minerals.
- The drain line becomes blocked, causing leaks to occur along the line. High water pressure can contribute to this issue.

Required Maintenance on Humidifiers
To keep your home’s humidifier working as expected, it’s important to perform regular maintenance on the unit. Some tasks you should complete regularly can include:
- Inspect the water evaporator pad. This can become clogged with mineral deposits and prevent the humidifier from functioning properly.
- Examine the blower motor. These have a limited lifespan and can break down after extended use. Have a professional inspect the unit to determine if it needs to be replaced.
- Check the water inlet valve. This can become clogged or stuck, reducing the amount of water the humidifier has access to, causing the unit to produce less moisture.
