Well, after fighting with the wick style humidifiers constantly fouling i bought an ultrasonic one. This one does great keeping the humidity up. BUT after running it for about 2 days constantly, i now have a haze in the air. its the atomized mineral deposits in the water. Although no one in the house has a problem with them, i dont want to generate one. So I have shut it down. I guess I now get to look into the deminerilization tablets or buying deionized water. Next year will be easier, I will just save up some of the condensate from the AC unit, thats easy, just a bit annoying. Does anyone have any suggestions here? I am sticking with the ultrasonic humidifier, just have to buy/clean the water.
