Humidifiers are designed to increase humidity by evaporating water at a specific rate, allowing the water vapor to be absorbed into the air. The concept is simple, controlling the effects are much more difficult. When heat is applied to water, evaporation occurs. The water vapor that escapes is virtually pure leaving behind the hardness elements that were present in the water. To make up for the water lost in evaporation, fresh water enters the system carrying additional hardness. This on-going process builds increasingly higher cycles of hardness concentration in the system water. Since water can only hold small amounts of hardness, fallout quickly occurs, causing scale to form in the humidifier.
Another common humidifier problem is biological fouling. Bacteria and spores are present in all buildings. These are microscopic air-born particles that are generally harmless. However, when air is filtered through the humidifier, bacteria and spores become trapped in the water. This can cause serious problems. Humidifiers act as incubators, they provide heat, moisture, and nutrients allowing bacteria and spores to colonize. In many cases this is identified by musty odors in the humidifier pan or vapor. If excessive algae and fungi growth can be seen in the pan. This can cause potential health problems to people prone to respiratory ailments.
