Why is a service essential?
It’s important to perform regular maintenance and servicing on your humidiﬁers to ensure they are working efficiently and keeping the environment at the preferred humidity levels.
Portable humidifiers are relatively simple and low cost to run but they will accumulate both lime-scale and sludge build-up if they are not cleaned and maintained regularly.
Six monthly service is recommended for preventing failure, compliance with HSE guidelines and ensuring efficient performance is maintained.
Novatron Scientiﬁc has a team of qualiﬁed, experienced engineers who will visit your premises to carry out preventative maintenance and make sure that your portable humidiﬁers remain safe, efﬁcient and reliable.
Benefits of regular servicing:
With regular servicing, the lifespan of a humidifier
can be extended from 4+ years to 20+ years
What happens if a humidifier isn’t serviced regularly?
If a humidifier isn’t serviced it won’t be able to deliver correct levels of humidity and its energy consumption may increase. It will also risk becoming unhygienic and present a risk to health and surface damage to materials in the room.
Some facts that the HSE states about the risks of not maintaining & disinfecting humidifiers
Any water system is potentially a reasonably foreseeable health risk if it has any of these factors:
- Stores and/or re-circulates water
- The presence of bacteria in the system water
- Where the water temperature may be between 20-45°C
- A means of creating and/or spreading breathable droplets, (aerosols)
- Likely to contain a source of food for the organism, such as contaminants from the surroundings (VOCs) or process including presence of sludge, rust, scale or organic matter
Portable Humidifiers Essential Service & Maintenance
Novatron Scientiﬁc has a team of qualiﬁed, experienced ngineers who will visit your premises to carry out reventative maintenance and make sure that your portable humidiﬁers remain safe, efﬁcient and reliable.
Regular service, cleaning and replacing consumable parts is essential to get the best from all types of humidiﬁers as dust and lime-scale are always a problem.
Our service contract provides you with support to protect your investment to ensure longevity. We have machines that are still in use by customers after 20+ years. These units have a 6 month service interval.
Planned maintenance of your humidiﬁer will ensure reliable and safe operation all year round and reduces the risk of it failing.
We recommend at least two planned inspections each year. One should be during the autumn, before the weather turns cold. The other should be early spring to check that the humidiﬁer is still working efﬁciently following the higher use over the colder weather.
Portable humidiﬁers are relatively simple and low cost to run but they will accumulate both lime-scale and bacterial/fungal build-up if they are not cleaned
and maintained regularly.
Our preventative maintenance contract includes top to bottom inspection and maintenance of your humidiﬁer as well as training for your on-site staff.
What to expect with an essential service & maintenance contract
Our efficient process ensures your portable humidifiers are always running reliably.
Step 1: Confirmation/reminder of scheduled visit
Step 2: Experienced field-service engineers visit your premises
Step 3: Cleaning, disinfection and de-scaling to ensure safety and efficiency
Step 4: Replacement of contaminated filters and evaporator mats
Step 5: Exchange of heavily scaled internal parts
Step 6: Repair and replacement of faulty components; common spares carried
Step 7: Recalibration of internal sensor / controller
Step 8: Full service report issued upon completion
We recommend changing the setting to 45% during frosty weather,
unless you have a plumbed in (auto-fill). This is because the tank may
need filling too often to keep up with, and humidity shall drop when
the tank empties (e.g. overnight, weekend, bank hols etc.)
