Issue of humidity in room occupied by printer (epson 7800)

I keep the humidity at 40% run a small Honeywell room humidifier and print frequently. Maintaining a humidifier cost less than replacing a printer.

The humidistat is reading 24%, which is lower than Epson recommends. My printing levels are low and I am concerned about this as a source of possible problems. I have been researching
humidifiers and am concerned about the need for continuing maintenance of the humidifier to the point of trying to rethink whether I need to address this issue. I would appreciate hearing what others have done or not done to address this issue
