What is Humidity Load?

Humidity Load (also known as Gallons Per Day) has a direct impact on the life of your cylinder. When properly sized to match the square footage of a home, a humidifier will rarely be required to run at full capacity. As a result, water levels inside the cylinder remain lower and buildup of minerals on the entire length of the electrodes takes longer. Thus, the life of your cylinder is greatly enhanced. Conversely, extraordinary installations that require constant operation at full capacity reduce cylinder life. The water level in the cylinder stays generally much higher, and the electrodes become completely insulated by mineral buildup more quickly. Installations like this may result in cylinder life of less than 1000 hours.
