Is Your Humidifier Making a Buzzing Noise?
Buzzing sounds coming from your humidifier may indicate debris is clogging the drive mechanism or the fan motor needs more lubrication. Loose components within a whole-house humidifier may also cause buzzing noises.
Leaking Whole House Humidifier
Your humidifier may be leaking due to a damaged hose or wick or problems in the water system. Before checking to see where the water leak is coming from, unplug the humidifier and inspect the water reservoir.
Does Your House Humidifier Smell Odd?
It could be your humidifier’s water tank needs a good cleaning. After washing the water tank and applying a cleaning solution of one gallon of water and two teaspoons of bleach, turn on the humidifier and wait for the odd smell to return. If it doesn’t, it’s probably fixed. If not, call us to check your unit for other problems.
Your Whole House Humidifier Fails to Start
Check the power source and your humidifier’s circuit breaker or fuse. In some cases, a humidifier is much higher than your home’s humidity and fails to adjust. A worst-case scenario involves replacing your humidifier with a new, top-quality home humidifier from Comfortmaker, one of the nation’s leading providers of whole house humidifiers.

Make sure air is not escaping from your home by checking to make sure all doors and windows are closed properly.
