Humidifiers – DIY Home Maintenance
DIY home maintenance can seem daunting if you are not mechanically minded. There are plenty of things you can do to keep down costs. These tips will keep your air humidifiers out of the repair shop – and your hard earned cash in your pocket.
Some climate control systems have in-duct humidifiers. These help keep air moist and healthy during the winter when artificial heat systems are in use. But when these systems aren’t working properly, they become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria, which can cause serious air quality issues.
At the end of each winter season, it is important to drain the unit and close the water valve to keep water from stagnating in the system. Also, cleaning the reservoir with a mixture of water and white vinegar helps to keep mineral deposits to a minimum.
