1. Do I have to change the nozzle along with the filter every heating season?
Yes, we do recommend changing the nozzle due to high mineral content in water. We would like a proper atomization for proper absorption of fine mist into the heated air stream.
Secondly, you can also soak your nozzle in a lime fighter or CLR to break down those deposits and reuse at anytime. It usually takes a week or so to break those deposits down.
2. I have concerns about duct condensation, how can I avoid this problem?
a. Check if pulse times are too high, please consult manual for square ft. of house.
b. Smaller duct size requires a #8 nozzle (.5gallon) or lower pulse setting.
c. Run Humid-a-Mist in the heat only mode, which requires the gain switch to be in the off position.
3. Can the Humid-a-Mist be used in an attic application?
We do not recommend attic installations due to low temperature conditions and possible freezing of water lines.
4. Can the Humid-a-Mist water line be installed to the hot water line?
No, due to higher calcium deposits and the breakdown of the water filter.
5. Can the Humid-a-Mist be used on a home using a water softener?
It can be used on either side of softener, but dusting may occur on the treated side of the softener due to the displacement of salt in the water.
6. Where is the proper humidistat setting?
During the winter seasons these settings could vary depending on outdoor temperature conditions. Please follow the recommended humidity settings on the Humid-a-Mist humidistat.
7. When is the recommended time to change the filter and nozzle for our humidifier?
The time to change the filter and nozzle are at the start up of each heating season when you will be running your furnace.
8. Can the Humid-a-Mist filter be used with ice makers or reverse osmosis water systems?
Yes, this filter is highly recommended for all water filter applications.
