Frequently Asked Question
Q. Does this leave white dust on the curtains and drapes?
A. I especially love this unit because it is not ultrasonic and it doesn’t leave any white dust. It’s quiet and the UV light works well to kill germs.
Q. Would I need to replace the filter if I only use distilled water?
A. Obviously, well water is the most available and cheapest too. But, distilled water is the best option for use with humidifiers. I believe using distilled water will lengthen the lifespan of your filter- not to say that it won’t crash eventually. To quote my favorite philosopher, George Harrison, “All things must pass”. So, also, your filter WILL eventually get exhausted. Yes, the filters will certainly last longer when using distilled water and practicing good maintenance practices like taking it out every once a week and rinsing it off the brown mineral deposit.
