Humidifier Choices - Need to make a decision :-)
I had to give up on my Aprilaire 760, and I took it off the furnace and threw it away. The transformer and or other board components had failed and were beyond my capabilities to repair.
Now I have a large hole 14-5/8 X 14-5/8 in the warm air output / raise of my furnace.
I could order a new April Aire 760, that is one option. House is from 63, quality construction, a few new windows, new doors, additional insulation and weather sealing has been done. Furnace is a standard high boy setup, high effec, 2 year old Goodman.
I found a Honeywell HE360A at Home Depot for $189, Rated 4,000 sqft on tight construction, 2,700 I think it said for medium construction) I am considering that one, thought, comments?
I also found a Halimiton Humidifier model 12F from Lowes for $136 - rated to cover 3,000 sqft and "Uses less water"
The Honeywell is a powered flow through, so I would not have to run a duct to the cold air return as I would with many of the other models.
Does anyone know if the Honeywell HE360A is basically comparable to the Aprilaire 760? Any differences?
Thank you in advance.
Steam humidifiers are the most efficient. But the trade off is operating costs.
I would stick with the Aprialaire if it worked well enough. Sure does simplify the decision making process.:yes:
Desert Springs Humidifier
I ended up picking up a Desert Springs Humidifer from Lowes for about $190. It does not use a filter, so you don't have to mess around with replacement filters multiple times a year.
Anyone have any experiance with the Desert Springs unit? I read some reviews online that were positive.
