Humidifier and Air Cleaner Maintenance Tips to Improve Performance

American Standard has a variety of ways to keep your home comfortable for everyone in your family. Our line of air quality solutions help ensure that your indoor air quality is optimized, so that allergies are kept at bay and the air is humid enough during the winter months. Keep everything working just as it should with these humidifier maintenance, air ventilator and air filter maintenance tips.

Because a humidifier is condensing water and blowing it into the air, it’s important to remember that humidifiers require regular cleaning in order to help reduce the risk of bacterial and fungal growth. Consult the product manual before performing any cleaning or humidifier maintenance as there may be special instructions on how to do so. Also, be sure to use an antibacterial/antimicrobial solution and do not use the humidifier again until it completely dries.
