Humidifier question

Recommended Posts

Honeywell has a new steam humidifier coming out soon or may be out already.Has a remote steam jenny and tube to the plenum for tight installations.Anyone have one yet and what do you think of it?

have you got a link to this humidifier that i may take a look at? I haven't heard of it yet. I recommend when i install a humidifier is a flow through type. But i wouldn't mind reading up on the steam one

I cant find them on line yet.They were hyping them at the trade show and were to be released in late January.Was hoping someone had seen or installed one.

I would consider what it'll cost to replace components after everything gets limed up.

Find out what average operating time will be before its all limed up and needs major cleaning or replacement parts.

I've serviced several steam type humidifiers. Some have plastic canisters and they don't last the winter without problem, in certain water conditions.

Steam is a great way for humidifying, but, but.....

I am concerned about the mineral deposits as we are on well water.My parents have a steam shower but so far so good with that unit.Our well should be about the same.I would love to talk to someone who has seen and installed one of these units but it doesn't look like it is available yet.It looks like they have addressed many of the maintanance issues.
