FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Question

What are the variables that affect run time?

How do I remove film on water tank?

How can I extend the run time?

ANSWER

The estimated run time for this humidifier is based on average room conditions. The actual run time of your humidifier is dependent on numerous variables such as:

1.Air exchange in the room where the humidifier is placed.

2.Room construction of the room where the humidifier is placed.

3.Temperature of the room where the humidifier is placed.

4.Humidity levels in the room where the humidifer is placed.

5.Movement of occupants and the opening and closing of doors in the room where the humidifier is placed.

6.Home furnishings in the room where the humidifer is placed.

See Daily Maintenance instructions. Regular cleaning is recommended.

Run your unit on the lowest setting.

If your unit has electronics, set it to your desired humidity level. The unit will turn on and off, which will extend the run time.

Fill the tank all the way full, place it on the base, let the water empty into the base until it stops bubbling, then refill the tank full again. This ensures maximum water capacity and will extend run time.
