It depends on how humid it is in the conditioned space, how well sealed the conditioned room is, and how high you have the humidifier set. If you have low humidity in your conditioned space and you are asking for a higher humidity number, it could go through quite a bit of water. If your room is not sealed well, it will allow lower conditioned air into the room and put a larger demand on the humidifier
You should probably follow the directions in the instruction manual, which do say how often to change it. If you wish to risk a moldy house or an unproductive filter you can use it longer than advised. I soak mine in 50% vineger 50% water for an hour to dissolve mineral deposits and kill fungus, so the wick doesn't become too clogged to operate. I believe this lets it last a few times longer, but it is a Honeywell model of filter and I don't know how that would work on your filter.
here is the website that you can order your filter from. now the filter that i'm seeing by your model number of ecm250 is a hwf62. that's the only one i see. now if your model number is different. this website that i posted will have it listed. you just have to type the correct model number in the bar and they will pull up the options for you. if you have any other questions please feel free to let me know.
you need filter model hwf100 for that unit. now you can try at any local hardware store or if your in canada you can try at canadian tire ifyou want. but if you want to order them offline you can go to www.appliancefactoryparts.com. type in your model number, clickon the picture scroll down alittle and the filters are the first thing to see. if you have any other questions please let me know.
The furnace model is irrelevant. The important question is usually the dimensions of the opening for the filters. The most common sizes are 16"x25"x1", 20"x25"x1", 16x25x5, etcetera. There are exceptions such as specialty filters like electronic ones. I suggest using inexpensive pleated filters but you could just use filters that you cut to fit instead. Have a helpful gasfitter assist you if necessary.
The Problem is minerals in the water. Impeller and ultrasonic designs send these minerals into the air. If the water in your area contains a lot of minerals, you will notice them as dust. The EPA does not issue health warnings about minerals in the air, but does recommend using low-mineral water (such as distilled water) in your humidifier. Many ultrasonic models feature a demineralization cartridge that filters minerals out of the water to prevent the dust.
I dont know why your humidifier is spitting water out.
But it sounds like you need to clean the unit and install a new filter. Once the filter becomes used, the humidifier won't work as well. Less water will be used because the clogged filter can't hold as much. Once you replace the filter, your water consumption should go back up and you should feel a difference in your home again.
I have the evenflo cool mist humidifier, model # 758100. There should be a model number on the unit. As far as replacement filters, you can buy the Holmes humidifier filter, model # HWF62. It's compatible with Evenflo. I bought a 2-pk at Target for $15.99. Hope this helps.
