Humidifier Not Working...
"Humidifier not working", "Not enough humidity", "My house is too dry", or "I'm getting static shocks" are all very common complaints during the winter months. And maintaining proper humidity levels is extremely important for your health, comfort, and well-being, not to mention your home and furnishings. More times than not though, the problem is something most homeowners can take care of themselves, without even calling for service.
In fact, many times the problem is something the homeowner did, like turning off the humidifier at the end of last heating season and forgetting to turn it back on again. Or forgetting to open a damper or water valve. Homeowners often forget that humidifiers need to be cleaned frequently - at least once each heating season. If the water panel or pad is clogged, the unit will not humidify properly.
Below is a list of possible causes. Items in red usually require a service call. Items in blue however can be addressed, some even fixed by the homeowner.
Red = Professional fix | Blue = Homeowner fix
Note: The possible causes above apply to different types of humidifiers, which include Power, Bypass, and Rotating Drum types.
The bottom causes in blue are commonly found problems and can be addressed by the homeowner. Try to check for these conditions first before calling for service.
