Even a cheap filter is like 10$ and more over cool mist one`s are prone to microbial and bacterial growth. so its recommend you change them every season of use or 3 months once. i uses a vicks one with the filter made of paper so cleaning is out of the question.I pick up a new one for 9$ from cvs.

What is the difference between a cool mist humidifier and a warm mist humidifier?

A cool mist humidifier agitates the water using ultrasonic vibrations or physical force (as in an impeller type) to get some of it to enter the air and become a "cool mist" of water droplets. Therefore, any minerals or germs that are in the water will also get dispersed along with the mist, and a cool mist humidifier must be disinfected regularly to prevent germs from growing in it and spreading to your home. The minerals can form a white dust that you'll find on surfaces when using this type of humidifier. A warm mist humidifier boils the water, turning it to steam. The steam is then cooled somewhat before it comes out of the humidifier, so it's warm instead of burning hot. Warm mist humidifiers are much less likely to spread germs or minerals, because the minerals don't boil (so they stay in the water tank), and the germs are killed by the heat that boils the water.

Clean Filters Helps Cooling Systems Work Better?

At times cooling systems fail to work properly, but there is one way to make certain it runs the way it should. Cleaning the filters is imperative to keeping the AC working properly.

When a filter is dirty, the air conditioning unit will not perform as it should which results in cool air being blocked from flowing into the house. In short, clean filters will keep the house cooler and will save the expense of having to hire a professional.
