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.
