Evaporators: This type of humidifier has a recommended filter replacement every three months unless you use the humidifier every day – then it is shortened to every two months.

Cool Mist or Hot Steam Humidifiers: Depending on the style of humidifier purchased, your filter will either have to be changed once every three months (Cool Mist) or not at all (Hot Steam). The hot steam versions of humidifiers do not come with a filter but instead requiring cleaning of the water panel once every two months to ensure air quality.
