Aprilaire 600m humidifier problem

I disagree with the recommendation of 35 RH when it's 20 degrees outside. At that level I would be getting shocked from static electricity, the wood in the home would dry out and crack, skin gets dry and cracked, and viruses would thrive better than at 48 RH, which appears to be the sweet spot as far as health is concerned.
Hey there.

How do I know when my Aprilaire bypass humidifier is operating?
If the humidity in your home is 45% or higher your Aprilaire bypass style humidifier will not run. This is because this the highest humidity level our humidifierís will attempt to attain. If you turn your humidistat from 15% to 45% and the humidifier does not run this is verification the humidity in your home is above 45%. Once the humidity level drops below 45% your Aprilaire bypass style humidifier should operate anytime the furnace is producing heat and the indoor relative humidity is less than the humidification set point on your humidistat. If not, we recommend contacting your installing contractor to troubleshoot the humidifier at your home.

Thanks for the info. My humidity has been hovering around 46% which is quite comfortable for this time of year. As long as it stays in that general range I am satisfied.
