As I mentioned earlier, a good rule of thumb is to keep a humidifier several feet from your bed and other large pieces of furniture under normal conditions. If you're suffering from severe congestion, sinus problems, or other similar cold or flu symptoms keeping a warm mist humidifier near the bed is helpful sometimes.
Basically, what should I set my humidifier to?
Setting the Indoor Humidity A comfortable relative humidity for most homes throughout the summer, spring, and fall is between 30% and 50%. If you set your humidifier to this level, it should be comfortable for your home and family most of the year.
Whence, can you put VapoSteam in a cool mist humidifier? VapoSteam, a product of Procter & Gamble is a product that can be used together with a humidifier. This product really goes well with the humidifiers. It does not contain petroleum jelly, which makes VapoRub not to go together with the humidifier.
In the same way, what should you set humidifier at in winter?
Again if you have a humidifier, you may want to manage humidity by turning it on in the winter. An indoor humidity level of 30 - 40% is recommended in the winter months. You can also add live houseplants for moisture or place water basins near your hesting system.
How do you tell if a humidifier is working?
There are several ways to determine if a humidifier is working properly. First and foremost, when the humidifier turns on an audible click, followed by the sound of the humidifier fan should be heard. Additionally, water should be seen running through the drain tube at the bottom of the humidifier.

As the humidity level in a space drops, a set of electrical contacts in the humidistat close, turning the unit on. When the humidity level rises, the electrical contacts open, thereby turning the unit off.
I repeat, do not add essential oils, of any kind, to your cool mist humidifier. We recommend using distilled water or tap water. *if you have hard water, or water with a lot of minerals in it, we recommend you use a filter.
No, cool mist humidifiers will not make the room colder. In fact, it will actually make you feel slightly warmer as high humidity can prevent sweat and retain body heat. Whether it is an ultrasonic or evaporative type, its sole function is to disperse moisture into the room and increase the humidity level.
