The HWF62PDQ (A) Filter
Why you Need a Humidifier Filter

Evaporative cool mist humidifiers cannot be run without the use of a wick filter.

Does Water Quality Effect Filter Life?

The harder the water, the shorter the filter life. This is because minerals will get trapped in the filter over time and cause the filter to lose its ability to wick.

Why Humidifier Filters Change Colors

Wick filters help remove the impurities found in general tap water. These impurities cause the filter to change color as they get trapped in the wick. As more and more minerals become trapped more of the filter will change color. Eventually the filter will no longer be operating the humidifier effectively, which means it is time to change the filter.

Deodorizes the Air

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda naturally deodorizes the air by absorbing and eliminating odors that come from garbage, bathrooms, pets, litter boxes, and cooking.

Antimicrobial Protection

Microban protection is an Antimicrobial agent that is used to treat the wick filter and the base of the humidifier. Microban product protection helps inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew.


Care of your Humidifier Filter
  • We recommend you replace your filter every 4-6 weeks, depending on usage and hardness of water. In some evaporative cool mist humidifiers we have included a Filter Check indicator that will indicate when the filter needs changing.

Customer Reviews

This filter did not last long, less than a month.

The wick based humidifiers, noise notwithstanding, are far superior to their ultrasonic counterparts due to the effectiveness and precision in controlling true relative humidity. I use vinegar, a cup to enough water to immerse the filter in a bucket not much wider than the filter diameter. The vinegar does away with the brown mineral deposits, and makes it as good and efficient as when new. Never let the water in the tank run out, and these filters, with weekly vinegar treatment, will last up to two months each. When the plastic housing begins to wear out, it is also about time you changed the filter. Folks who gave this product a low rating based on extraneous factors to do with the noise of the main unit should know better. These reviews are about the filter and not the main unit! Also, despite the antimocrobial properties, some mold formation is inevitable in humid environments, so I clean the main unit every few months with basic G, a shaklee product that destroys any mildew or mold residual in the unit, this includes the grille and the fan components.

Although this is a generic version of the Holmes filter, and despite the "cheap looking package" that the previous reviewer commented on, this filter works just as well as the original Holmes brand filter that came with my humidifier. Save yourself a couple bucks and don't judge the filter on the packaging it comes in. It works wonderfully.

For some reason we have had difficulty finding these replacement filters; therefore we did a search and found several places online. These were very well priced and shipping was reasonable and VERY QUICK. I recommend this merchant to Amazon shoppers.

I have to run a humidifier in Winter because it is so cold and dry where I live! These filters work great and are pretty cheap so I can buy enough for the whole winter. I go through about one a month from November thru April.

No fault of the filter. Its does its job.. But when you store your humidifier, the filter is usually useless to use again once it dries. It gets out of shape and discolors. Still, I like the filter option and when I purchase through Amazon, I normally buy two as the humidifier does not function without it because the vapors are drawn through the filter.

I have absolutely no qualms with this purchase. The company I purchased from had a very reasonable price and the item arrived in a timely manner. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because - let's be honest - it's a humidifier filter, I can't get THAT excited about it and claim that I "love it".

Have been using the replacement filter for my Holmes Humidifier
for over a month, now. Most of the time you get what you pay for!
This is a very low-cost filter but it is doing a good job.
My humidifier is operating very well and the filter check is in the
good zone after about half an hour. I recommend it for its low-cost
and performance.

When using this filter in my Sunbeam SCM1762, the "Filter Check" meter never
moves out of the 'Change Filter' area. Since the meter is actually a humidity
sensor, it means the filter is not wicking enough water. The filter is also
missing the plastic backing that was on the original filter.

I will have to go back to the more expensive HWF62/SF212 filters.
