We’ve received a lot of questions about the demineralization cartridges included with our humidifiers, including how often they need replacement and where to buy them. So, here’s everything you’ll ever need to know about them:
What does the demineralization cartridge do?
The demineralization cartridge – included in both our HCW10B Cool & Warm Mist Humidifier, and the HC12W Cool Mist Vase Humidifier – is designed to remove excess minerals from the water in your humidifier. By filtering out minerals from your water, these cartridges can improve the quality and lifespan of your humidifier. Additionally, they will help to limit the amount of scale build up caused by hard water inside your unit.
How long will the Luma Comfort demineralization cartridge last?
The Luma Comfort demineralization cartridges are designed to work for upwards of one year before needing a replacement. Ultimately, the lifespan for your demineralization cartridge will depend on the quality of water used in your humidifier. In areas with extremely hard water, the cartridge may need additional maintenance or quicker replacement.
How can I maximize the lifespan for my demineralization cartridge?
Simple maintenance can help recharge and re-activate your demineralization cartridge, extending it’s, and your humidifier’s, lifespan, while also improving the quality of mist put out by your Luma Comfort humidifier. To recharge the cartridge, simply soak it in a mixture of water and a couple tablespoons of vinegar. Allow it to soak for 15-20 minutes. We recommend doing this about once a month, again depending on the quality of the water.
Where can I buy a replacement demineralization cartridge?
Replacement demineralization cartridges will soon be available at all retailers where our humidifiers are sold. For a list of our current online retail partners, check out our Web site here: Where to Buy.
