Keeping the temperature comfortable and cool is essential when it comes to your home. However, we often aren’t sure how to go about this in many cases, which can leave us struggling to find the optimal solutions for our own needs. Nevertheless, it really shouldn’t have to be this way, which is why we’re looking today at how to use your humidifier properly – and, namely, whether it is OK to use tap water in a humidifier.



Can I Use Tap Water in a Humidifier?


Can you use tap water in a humidifier? Absolutely. While most humidifier brands recommend using pure distilled water in their devices, tap water usually should not cause problems. If you notice your tap water is discolored, though, you should never use it in your humidifier, and contact a local plumber as soon as possible to check your pipes.


Tap Water Should be Fine

In most cases, tap water will be fine with your humidifier in an emergency. This fact is since tap water is specifically designed with your health in mind, and water companies treat it very rigorously to remove contamination. And, if you run out of distilled water on a hot day, sometimes, reaching for tap water in an emergency may be another option.


Use Distilled Water for Best Results

While tap water likely won’t hurt your humidifier once or twice, in the long run, the minerals could impact your humidifier’s performance. Furthermore, depending on the condition of your property’s pipes, there’s a slight chance of your tap water containing pathogens or contamination picked up from the piping. As such, opting for distilled water that’s guaranteed pure instead is often the best way to refresh your home.
