If this is a furnace mounted humidifier. Just plug it in and turn it on. I do not know what part of the country you are in. I live in northeastern Ohio. We set out humidistats at aprox. 35% and adjust as needed.
Unplug it for the summer. If it getts muggy in the house or if you get condensation around the doors, windows or window sills. Turn the setting down. If it feels dry in the house, or you have dry skin, nosebleeds, dry eyes or notice static electricity. Turn up the humidistat. Always ajust a little at a time and allow a couple of days between adjustments. It takes time to notice any changes.
IMPORTANT ...change the water panels in it yearly for maximum operation.
Good Luck

My lennox furnace works just fine except that 25% of the time the fan keeps running when it shouldn't and blows cold air


You are using too restrictive of an air filter. If the codes you are getting off the lights says anything about a high limit this is the cause of your blower running all the time. Use a less restrictive filter or have your contractor install a media filter in the system. if you reset the furnace and it does not stop running the blower you have a stuck limit switch and may have to get another or call a service tech to reset it or replace.

I can't tell if it is working. The humidity reading in the house is 20%. When I open the humidifier, I see that the water is trickling over the filter but it doesn't seem to ever get saturated.


Hello, is there water going down the drain tube, if so then the humidifier is working. The pad does not really get saturated the water just trickles on the pad and the the fan blows it into the air duct. your outside air temp determines what your humidistat should be set at.

Outside Temperature -10 F 0 F 10 F 20 F 30 F Recommended Indoor
Relative Humidity
20% 25% 30% 35% 35%

Cool Mist Humidifier Filter Drying Out


How long are you going between filter changes?

A filter that stops wicking water up and turns orange/yellow is one full of deposits.

It sounds like you have hard water. How are you filtering this water before you use it? Distilled water is the best.

Replace the filter. They don't last forever. Mine normally last a month to a month and a half.

Good Luck

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.
