If you are using the misting type humidifier rather than the wick-type. there could be a blockage in the misting aperture. These units clog easily, and it is best to use distilled water in them since mineral deposits can clog the aperture.

Not releasing humidity in the air. every thing else seem to be working


It would seen that if it is not releasing humidity to the air, then, seeing as it is a humidifier, is is not working. Everything else is just a ruse to make you feel better about the fact that it is broken.

Or, there is just too much humidity in the air already and it cannot add any more.....

I have Bemis (Esswick) Humidifier Model # 4968. The motor runs fines however I can't get the humidity in my above 30%. I changed the filter and it was close to 45% for a few days but running continuously,...


You should be able to get a higher humidity rate at normal settings. If you want high humidity above 40% that should be easily done with the high speed operation. The unit may need a good internal cleaning, and use a Vinegar solution to clear any Calcium or other mineral deposits from the misting ports and misting elements. You must use only Distilled or Filtered water, not tap water.

Our house is extremely humid and the a/c needs to be set lower to feel cooler. What are we doing wrong regarding aprilaire humidifier on our furnaces? Shouldn't they be turned off? yet the directions...


Hello
It depends on personal preferance,an air conditionner is going to remove humidity or water from the home,as water contains heat.

I would shut off the humidifier.The 40% setting depends on where in the world your located,say nevada is dry and hot so you may want a humidifier.Where florida is hot and humid so you would want to dehumidify or get rid of the humidity.

Lower the setting to 20% or just turn it off.

Everything seems to be working - installed a new water panel today - but the humidity level remains at about 30%.


Hi,
If it is very cold out or if the humidity was very low to start with then it will take quite a long time to get the humidity back up. Do you have your thermostat set to run the fan continuously? This will keep the air flowing over the panel and bring the humidity back sooner.If you allow it to just cycle with the heat it will take a very long time to catch up.
Turn the fan switch on your t-stat to "on" and then it will circulate air all the time and help you out faster.

Does not dehumidify


Hello. I am here to help. Let me begin by saying that a dehumidifier only needs to be operated if the humidity in your home is too high. If the humidity is low, the humidifier will have to work really hard to try and remove water from it.

Here is an overview of how the dehumidifier is supposed to work:

When the unit runs, the circulating fan and compressor also run. The fan continually draws room air over the evaporator coils, which are cold, and then over the condenser coils, which are warm. Because the evaporator coils are cold, the moisture in the room collects on them--just as the outside of a glass of icy liquid "sweats" on a warm, humid day. When the moisture on the coils increases, it drips off of the coils into the collection container.

The air then flows over the warm condenser coils and out into the room. This process removes water from the air and, because of the heat from the fan motor and compressor motor, the exiting air is somewhat warmer, as well as dryer.

Won't humidify past 30% in a 90sf bedroom


The most probable reason that the humidifier does not reach the levels you describe is because you said you had the unit in your bedroom.

Bedrooms typically contain materials that are known as "hygroscopic." What that means in plain English is that items such as the bedding, mattress, any carpeting, wood, curtains, you, etc. all absorb moisture , kinda like a sponge. Since that moisture is being held by these materials, the air itself contains less by percentage. 25-30% humidity is actually pretty good for any room, especially in colder climates and higher humidity levels can lead to the production of mold, condensation on windows, etc., which are not good things. The good news is that reasonable humidity levels are healthier for textiles such as carpeting, cloth, and so on because the fibers won't dry out and crack. Dust is also reduced, but again, only to a certain level.

If your humidifier is reaching 30% it's probably working ok.

Aprilaire 600: water only runs in "Emergency" Heat mode


When your unit is on normal the outside unit works and the inside only the fan runs. your heat pump does not remove any humidity when it operates so the installation cotractor did not wire it to operate then. you can change the wiring on the humidifier to operate all the time by wiring it to the fan (g) terminal then it should work just turn it all the way to the lowest humidity when you are in cooling mode.

Lack of humidity


Try the following test, ( I will resume this is a flow through humidifier)

Spray water directly oin the filter make sure it is saturated. Some water should leak from the bottom. After 10 min measure the Humidity to see if this helped. If there is a higher level of humidity the pbm is that not enough water is saturating the filter. Check the level of the filter & water feed nozzle.

Option 2 is to connect the water feed tube to a Hot water source.

Hope this helps.

Fan is running but humidity is not changing


Q: My unit has been running for several hours. I hear the fan spinning, but I do not notice the water level in the tank decreasing.
A:
First, check the filter to ensure it is wet. If the pad appears dry, remove it from the Base and gently rinse under cool water. Reposition wet filter in the Base. You may also want to note the current moisture level in your home. If the humidity level is over 60% the unit will not put out much moisture
as your air is already saturated.

UV bulb and filter are user replacement items

OK?
Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Jan 20, 2008 Q: I hear the fan turning, but I don’t see any mist. Is my humidifier operating properly?
A:
Dry air is pulled through the system and a fan disperses invisible, moisture balanced air. There is no
“mist” emitted. When operating normally you will feel only cool air coming from the unit. Monitor the
water level in your Tank/ Base. If you notice a decrease in the Water Tank over 24 hours then the unit
is operating normally.
