Common Problems With Humidifiers
From time to time your AC humidifier may need repairs. Some of the more common issues that can require professional repairs can include:
- It’s not producing the right amount of moisture required for your home. This can be due to either the sponge pad accumulating too many minerals or the unit not being level.
- The water inlet is clogged with minerals.
- The drain is blocked. This can cause leaks to occur along the line. This issue can be heightened due to high water pressure.
- The unit only starts if it’s set on a humidity level that’s higher than the current one in your home.

Required Maintenance for Humidifiers
To ensure your humidifier works properly when you need it most it’s important to keep it properly maintained. To keep it functioning, perform the following tasks:
- Check the water evaporator pad regularly. This can become clogged with mineral deposits and keep the humidifier from functioning as expected.
- Inspect the blower motor. The motors may need to be replaced by professionals if they break down.
- Examine the water inlet valve. This can become clogged or stuck, reducing the amount of water the humidifier has access to and limiting the amount of moisture it can produce.
