The relative humidity of indoor air should be 30–45%, but in most homes today it is significantly lower in winter. Many factors affect the humidity of modern apartments. Efficient ventilation is key in removing humidity.

Dry indoor air causes and increases irritation of the respiratory tracts, mucous membranes and skin. It also reduces the removal of mucus from the respiratory system, which in turn increases the risk of inflammation.

When air is still, it offers a good growth medium for bacteria and viruses which may then cause various illnesses. In addition, allergic symptoms may be accentuated, as there is more dust in dry indoor air than in humid indoor air.

When the indoor air is too dry, it may also cause furniture and parquet floors to crack and parts to become loose. Textiles become static, flowers and plants suffer, and there is dust in the air.

FAQ

How to clean the air humidifier

Clean the air humidifier using Ufox cleaning agent and water, as described in the instructions. Disregarding the instructions or the use of a cleaning agent other than Ufox may damage the device. The air humidifier should be cleaned if a deposit is visible on the heating block.

Where to place the air humidifier

The recommended minimum distance from walls and other surfaces to the sides of the humidifier is 50 cm, and from surfaces above it, 120 cm. Consider the location carefully when placing an air humidifier above floor level, taking into account any risks to children or pets, to ensure that it cannot tip over or fall. If you acquire several air humidifiers, place them in different rooms.

When selecting a location for the air humidifier, please ensure that the humidity can spread through the room unobstructed.

Why is it recommended to fill the air humidifier with hot water?

Vaporisation begins faster if you fill the air humidifier with hot water, which is why we recommend it (as hot as you can get from the tap).

Why does the air humidifier make a hissing sound?

The air humidifier makes a hissing sound when it is running out of water. This is normal. The air humidifier will automatically turn off when the water level drops to the level of the heating block or slightly below it.

Are replacement lids available for Ufox air humidifiers?

Replacement lids are available to the majority of Ufox air humidifiers at authorised Allaway service dealers. (Finland)

Where can I have my Ufox air humidifier serviced?

Allaway service dealers can assist with any service needs related to Ufox air humidifiers (in Finland), in other cases please contact your retailer.

How long is the warranty period for Ufox air humidifiers?

The warranty period for Ufox air humidifiers is two years from the date of purchase. The warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship. The manufacturer shall not be responsible for damage resulting from use or cleaning that does not adhere to the instructions, or wear and tear or mechanical damage. The warranty does not cover possible indirect damage. A precondition for a warranty service is provision of the receipt of purchase that states the date of purchase. Authorised Allaway service dealers perform warranty repairs.

How much energy do the air humidifiers consume?

U3S

Electrical power 230 V: 150 or 320 W (the device features two power settings)
Consumption: 0.12–0.38 kWh/h (depending on the power network voltage and the power setting selected)

HK 2

Electrical power 230 V: 165 W
Consumption: 0.13–0.20 kWh/h (depending on the power network voltage and the power setting selected)

Why is the air humidifier dirty on the inside after use?

The materials used in the Ufox air humidifier do not emit any impurities into the water in the container or to the indoor air. However, household water always contains minerals, such as lime, in varying quantities that depend on the location.  The minerals in the household water accumulate in the residual water in the air humidifier as well as on the surfaces of the container and heating block.

Clean the container and heating block of the Ufox air humidifier using water and Ufox cleaning agent.

If the concentration of minerals in the household water is high, you can use an appropriate filter to filter the water and reduce the amount of minerals in it.

Replace the water in the device every time you turn it on. This will also help reduce the contamination of the heating block.

Why does the heating element of a new air humidifier look dirty before use?

The heating block of Ufox air humidifiers is made from stainless steel, which is a durable metal that naturally has a matte surface and a light grey colour. It has not been chemically polished. This makes it possible to avoid the use of strong acids in the manufacturing process.

Why does some water always remain on the bottom of the Ufox air humidifier?

Ufox air humidifiers vaporise the water into clean steam and do not spread the impurities in the water into the indoor air like many other air humidifiers do.  The minerals in the household water accumulate in the residual water, which makes it easy to flush them away.

You can reduce the contamination of the heating block and the container of the device by discarding the residual water regularly.

Resetting the thermostat

The Ufox air humidifier automatically turns off when it runs out of water. After refilling the device, reset the device to its operating mode by pressing the Start button.

Measuring the air humidity

There is a wide range of reliable humidity meters available in the market for measuring air humidity. The relative humidity of indoor air should be 30–45%.
