A clean humidifier protects your furnace and your family's health!! Clean the humidifier

A clean humidifier prolongs the life of your furnace,Cleaning the humidifier keeps it from holding stagnant water where illness-causing bacteria can breed. And a clean humidifier prolongs the life

of your furnace by keeping mineral deposits from blocking the supply line, clogging parts and plugging the drain line.

It also prevents leaks that can rust a hole in your heat exchanger, allowing furnace exhaust gases such as carbon monoxide into your home's air supply.

Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for humidifier cleaning. If you're uncomfortable cleaning the humidifier yourself, call for service.


1.Shut off the water supply valve.

2.Check the supply line and connections for leaks or damage that might block the water flow. If you see any, call for service.
3.Visually inspect the humidifier for leaks or overflow: ◦If it is leaking, call for service.

  • If it is overflowing, clean the humidifier, run it and see if it still overflows. If so, call for service.
  • If you see signs of past leaks or overflow water stains or rust on the humidifier or the furnace clean the humidifier, run it for 24 hours and look for leaks or overflow. If you see either, turn it off and call for service.
4.Empty the water from the humidifier. ◦Trickle humidifiers have a drain. Let the water drain out. If it doesn't drain, the drain is clogged. Empty the water manually.
  • Drum humidifiers usually must be emptied manually. Follow the instructions in the owner’s manual.
5.Read and follow the manufacturer's cleaning instructions to dissolve mineral deposits and remove dirt and mold. If any parts are so fouled with mineral deposits and mold that cleaning them is not worth the effort, replace them or have them replaced.
