The Lasko 1128 Evaporative Recirculating Humidifier features continuous water circulation, which keeps the filter moist for clean, long-lasting performance; increases efficiency, using the entire filter surface for maximum, evaporative-moisture output; will not recirculate airborne particles; helps remove water contaminants; and eliminates standing water. This unit is ideal for large areas or multiple rooms as its daily 9 gallon output is will humidify areas up to 3200 square feet.
The best selling point of this humidifier is the adjustable humidistat. You select the humidity level and the unit will shut off when it reaches the set level and then turns back on when it falls below the set level.
Standard use will necessitate approximately two filters per season. As with all humidifiers, this unit requires regular cleaning and periodic maintenance. The least messy way to completely clean the machine is to do a yearly demineralizing and disinfecting. To do this, sit the humidifier in a bathtub, fill it with a vinegar and water solution, and then it run for about 30 minutes. This will loosen or dissolve any mineral deposits. Then rinse it with water, refill with a bleach and water solution, and let it run for another 30 minutes. This should kill mold spores and any dormant bacteria.
Remember, the harder your tap water, the more white-dust buildup you will get in the room as well as inside the humidifier. If this happens, simply switch to filtered or distilled water.
