Lastly, confirm that there is enough water in the tank for the humidifier to function properly. Please note: some humidifiers take a minute or longer to heat up before mist can be seen.

Where to place & how to use your humidifier
Having the right amount of humidity in your home is important to maintaining comfort and well-being. Humidifiers add moisture to the air, so make sure to keep them away from objects that might react negatively to excess moisture. Good air flow is also important to allow the humidifier to distribute moisture through the air evenly and effectively. Try to position your humidifier in a central location of the room, away from windows and vents. Also, be sure to check the room size rating of the humidifier when selecting which room in your home you are looking to humidify.Learn More
Cool moisture Vs warm mist humidifiers
Cool moisture humidifiers implement a fan that continuously blows moisture off a saturated wicking filter. This ensures that the moisture evaporates into the air at a rapid pace. Warm mist humidifiers, instead of using a filter, boil the water in a heating chamber before releasing it into the air as warm, visible mist.Learn More
