Hamilton Heating and Cooling wants to help you improve the quality of the air in your home during the winter months with our humidifier replacement in Hamilton services. The products we carry are all easily maintained. When the one you have reaches the end of its life, give us a call.
In the meantime, here’s a few tips for cleaning your present unit to keep it running well.
One popular method uses distilled white vinegar or chlorine bleach. Regardless of the liquid you finally choose, a dish brush made of nylon or an old toothbrush works well. Just make sure it’s soft.
There is a good reason you need to go through this process. Moisture gets released into the air from a humidifier. That’s a good thing. However, other particles like chemicals, molds and bacteria also find their way into the air you breathe. People with allergies or asthma are prone to having irritated lungs.
Understanding how to clean your humidifier means understanding the basics. Simply put, there is a reservoir or tank and some other parts like a fan, a wick and a filter and some rotating disks. If you’re looking to switch the unit out, our humidifier replacement in Hamilton department carries several different types.
Cleaning the unit out is easier when you read the manufacturer’s instructions first. Some units will have filters that need to be replaced on a regular basis. Central humidifiers often have evaporators that need to be cleaned or replaced.
After you’ve read the instructions, you can unplug the unit and empty it out. Here’s a few more steps involved in cleaning out your humidifier. Remember, these are basic rules that might not apply to every unit.
- Disassemble the unit and then poor up to 2 cups of white vinegar into the tank.
- Take the tank and put it on the base so the vinegar drains into the reservoir.
- After about 20 minutes you can empty out the vinegar and use your small brush to loosen any mineral deposits.
- When everything is clean, you can reassemble after wiping all the parts dry.
Here’s a few things you can do to keep your machine running well after it’s maintained. Always empty the reservoir and tank when you’re not using your humidifier. Replace the filter every several months when needed. Of course when you need a new unit , you should consult our humidifier replacement in Hamilton services.
