For, 4 Gallon Output Cool Mist Humidifiers
Fast & Easy Replacement
In arid climates or the cold, dry days of winter, owning a humidifier makes an awful lot of sense. A humidifier protects household occupants from static electricity shocks, prevents dry, itchy skin, allows stressed lungs to breathe with more comfort, and infuses the room's environment with needed moisture to furniture, fabrics, and plants for long-lasting health. But for all of these positive attributes, using a humidifier may also produce some nasty and harmful results. If not properly cared for, a humidifier becomes the breeding ground for assorted viruses, bacteria, mildew, and mold. In other words, the soothing moist air exhaled by humidifier might be much more harmful than helpful in the long run. To keep the air clean and amply humidified, it is essential to regularly replace the humidifier's filter, where the impurities often fester. Hamilton Beach recognizes the importance of clean filters by offering this replacement filter from their True Air line.
The filter fits Cool Mist models 05520 and 05521. These humidifiers accommodate rooms up to 1200 square feet and feature a 4-gallon output per tank. The filter drops into the tank for simple installation. Filters should be replaced every three months and humidifier water changed weekly to ensure clean breathing air. The Cool Mist humidifiers are also dishwasher- safe for thorough, regular cleaning. To extend the filter's life, some users swap out filters weekly to allow the spare filter to dry well to keep mold from developing. Rotating the filter also may prolong its life. No warranty is available for the replacement filter. This item measures 11.1 by 6.8 by 3.1 inches. --Jessica Reuling
