Care should always be taken to ensure that the Aprilaire water panel is kept clean. If minerals are allowed to build up on your Aprilaire water panel, then the system will not be able to produce enough humidity. If the Aprilaire humidifier water panel collects too many build up contaminants, you will notice a decrease in the overall performance of the Aprilaire 112 and the Aprilaire 224.
