I have a Hunter Model No 33222 humidifier (night glo). I haven't used it since last winter and I need to use it now but I can remember if it uses distilled water, bottled drinking or tap water. Can you advise me what to use? Our local water is very very Hard!!

Hunter carefree humidifiers use a reusable and washable wick this method of humidifying does not produce a fine mist like many centrifugal (cool misting)humidifiers.
The fact that it is producing cold air seems to indicate it is working.
However it would not hurt to check the water intake for blockages it also a good idea to run these models on high for several mins when starting this ensures that water is being pumped up.
what kind of humidifier? Are you getting condensation? Look at the windows in the room with the humidifier, if they are wet with condensation, then you have too much water in the air, also if it's cold enough the water can sometimes just fall instead of being absorbed 100% into the air...
From The Hunter Manual
1. Turn the humidifier ‘OFF’ and unplug the unit.
2. Lift the main housing and remove the water dispersion tray and the PermaWick™ Filters. The motor is attached to the main housing. Do not place the motor near water. Do not use a wet towel on the motor or motor housing as electrical shock may occur.
3. The PermaWick™ Filter should be cleaned in a vinegar and water solution to remove any mineral buildup. Place in a solution of one (1) gallon of water and eight (8) ounces of undiluted white vinegar. Allow the filter to soak for 20 minutes.
4. After soaking, rinse it several times with clean water. Place the PermaWick™ Filter in a location where it can drip dry while you clean the other parts of your humidifier.
5. Remove the water tank from the base and empty any water that is left in the tank. Soak the base in a mixture of one (1) gallon of water and eight (8) ounces of vinegar for 20 minutes.
6. After soaking, wipe the base with a soft cloth or sponge to remove any mineral build up. Rinse with clean water several times. If you are planning on storing the humidifier, be sure the base is completely dry.
7. Fill the water tank with one (1) gallon of water and eight ounces of undiluted white vinegar. Replace the tank cap and shake the tank vigorously until all interior surfaces of the tank have been exposed to the water/vinegar mixture.
8. Empty the tank of the water/vinegar mixture. Rinse it several times with clean water and then replace the tank cap. If you are planning on storing the humidifier, dry it inside and out, leaving the cap off to allow the tank to completely dry. Continue to clean the other parts of your humidifier.
9. Remove the water diffuser cap by squeezing the two tabs as shown in Figure 3. Rinse the cap in clean water to remove any debris. If the cap contains hard water residue, soak it in a mixture of one (1) quart of water and two (2) ounces of vinegar for 20 minutes.
Rinse well and reinstall the water diffuser cap. Do not expose motor or other electrical components to water.
10. Wipe the surfaces of the main housing with a soft cloth.
11. Once all the parts are clean, reassemble the humidifier, and follow the USING YOUR HUMIDIFIER to continue use. If you are storing the humidifier, make sure the parts are completely dry, reassemble, and store in a dry location
Features:Low Maintenance: * Regulated Release ™ System - eliminates stagnant water while preventing mineral build-up on the wick or filter, which can impede performance in ordinary evaporative humidifiers. * Dishwasher-Safe, Easy-Clean Base and Tank - with antimicrobial agents molded into plastic parts to inhibit the growth of microorganisms. * PermaWick ™ - permanent wick never needs to be replaced, saving up to $45 per year in replacement filter costs. * Top Down Water Dispersion - evenly disperses water from the top over the entire wick to prevent mineral build up that can impede performance.
Most likely you do not have the humidifier assembled properly. Mine did that and I found out that not all of the parts were fully in their final position.
Problem: My water always has nasty particles floating in the water and the inside of the humidifier has a snot-like substance on the inside. The humidifier is supposed to be care-free for life time. What's the deal?
