Frequently Asked Questions

Why does my humidifier have a musty smell?

The musty or unpleasant odors coming from your humidifier are often caused by dust, bacteria, or mold buildup inside the unit. If you're using a portable humidifier, this could indicate the need for cleaning or changing the tank water. For whole-home humidifiers, it might be a clogged drain line, a filter that needs replacing, or mold growth in the ductwork. Contact our service professionals for assistance with these issues.

Why isn't my humidifier working?

If your humidifier isn't functioning properly, it's usually due to one of these common problems:

  • Old or clogged filter
  • Low water levels
  • Loose parts or electrical issues
  • Dirty or jammed float valve

In many cases, troubleshooting and cleaning can resolve these issues. If problems persist, it's best to seek help from Aire Serv® of Smith County’s experts.

Why isn't my humidifier producing mist?

The most frequent reasons for a lack of mist from your humidifier include:

  • No power supply
  • Buildup of grime and minerals
  • Incorrect humidity settings
  • Loose, jammed, or broken float valve

If cleaning your unit, checking power connections, and adjusting settings don't solve the problem, reach out to us.

How often should I replace my humidifier filters?

To prevent dust, grime, and potential mold buildup on your filters, we recommend replacing them at least every 3 months. If you have high levels of home pollutants or increased allergy sensitivities, more frequent filter replacements may be necessary.
