I have a Honeywell "Enviracaire elite" humidifier which is mounted on the return air side of my furnace. The bypass is attached to a supply duct that only only feeds two rooms in my house instead of attaching to the plennum(sp?) before it branches off. Is this set up effective? Or is it only adding moisture to a couple rooms instead of the entire house?
Im guessing it was installed there be because the heat exchanger and evaporator are in the plennum and would block some air flow. It does look like I could easily move it just above the heat exchanger, just before the duct work branches off. Is it worth it?
So I was confused on the direction of the air flow? The moist air gets introduced to the return side first where the humidifier is mounted? I assumed it was the other way around. Does this set up make any difference in adding moisture to the house?
Does not make any difference . Warm air blows across the pad and picks up moisture. That air is drawn back through the return and mixes with the air from the rest of the house which blows out all of the supplies.
