Boost your indoor humidity level by adding moisture into your indoor spaces.
In colder weather, humidity levels drop due to cold air not being able to hold as much moisture causing the air to be drier. Low levels of moisture in your indoor environment can cause a number of health concerns. Itchy skin, dry eyes, bloody noses, and dry skin are examples where humidifier filters are the simple solution to resolve the issue.
Humidifiers work to revitalize your home by making the dry air in your indoor spaces more comfortable. Humidifiers boost your indoor humidity level by adding moisture into the air in your indoor spaces. By doing so, humidifiers rejuvenate your household by bringing moisture back into a dry environment to allow for a more comfortable living situation.
Your humidifier contains a filter that is used to ensure that your indoor environment is brought clean, pathogen-free water vapor. Over time, this humidifier filter can begin to have blockages accumulate on it. To prevent this from occurring and causing damage to your humidifier and home, make sure that your humidifier filter is clean by washing away built up residue along with replacing old filters routinely. This can prevent future problems from occurring as well as ensuring maximum efficiency and comfort levels in your indoor spaces.
The recommended humidity level for an indoor space is between 30% and 50%. Humidity levels higher than 50% provide an environment that is an ideal breeding ground for mold to grow as well as dust mites, bacteria, and other pests. If the humidity level is below 30%, cold and flu viruses are more likely to spread along with other respiratory symptoms. Air that is too dry can also cause damage to your home's foundations as well as wood furnishings

Frequently Asked Questions
What are humidifier filters?
Humidifier filters are also known as water panels, evaporators or water pads. Humidifier filters are used in a humidifier to help alleviate dry air mostly in the winter time. A humidifier works when warm, unfiltered air is blown across a humidifier filter, which is saturated with water. As the air passes over the filter, it picks up moisture and distributes the humid air into the room or through the HVAC system. Find out more about humidifier filters.
Where does a whole house humidifier install?
A whole house humidifier connects direclty to your home's forced air furnace. The benefit of a whole house humidifier is a single piece of equipment supplying supplimental humidty to the entire house (rather than multiple units in different rooms).
Why should I replace my humidifier filter?
Your humidifier filter (AKA pad, wick) is meant to absorb and hold water. Eventually, the filter will become clogged with scale and minerals - losing it's absorbency. In the winter months when the humidifier is used often, replace your filter at least once every 6 months.
Why do I need a humidifier?
If you live in a dry region of the country, or an area with seasonal dryness - it's important to maintain the proper level of humidity in your home - 40-60% relative humidity. Dry air can cause issues like cracked, itchy skin and other health problems. Additionally - materials like wood flooring and furniture are susceptable to cracking and warping under excessively dry conditions. A home with the correct level of humidity will be more comfortable for you and your family.
What is a Water Panel
A "water panel" is really the same humidifier part as a "humidifier water pad" or "humidifier filter" - used in a whole house humidifier. Traditionally, the water panel is a metal mesh pad dipped in a liquid clay slurry. The clay coating absorbs and holds water for distribution into the air. Other whole house pads are made of highly absorbent paper with aluminum reinforcement. Metal and paper pads work the same way - but paper pads should be replaced twice as often as metal pads.
What is the optimal level of humidity in a home?
It's best to keep the relative humidity in your home at approximately 35-40%. In order to achieve this - you may need to suppliment your homes humidity by deploying portable humidifiers or a whole house humidifier in the dry, winter months. If humidity is high in your area during the hot, summer months - the air conditioning system should remove the excess humidity. Sometimes a suplimental dehumidifier will be needed to manage humidity not addressed by air conditioning.
Does my portable humidifier have a filter?
Your portable, room humidifier may or may not have a filter to replace. Traditionally, room humidifiers will use a paper "wick" (also called a filter) that absorbs water for distribution into the air via a fan. Many new room humidifiers create a mist by using ultrasonic vibration to break water into small particles and disperse them into the air. These types of humidifiers (sometimes called "cool mist") do not require a filter.
