How do I know if my Vicks humidifier is working?
How to Tell if a Humidifier is Working
- Watch the water level in the tank. If the water level drops at a decent rate each day, you can be assured that your humidifier is putting moisture in the air.
- Place a humidity gauge in the same room as the humidifier.
- Place your hand over the vent of your humidifier, where the air is pushed out.
