Humidifier recommendation?


I'm looking to change our whole house humidifier mounted on the furnace. It's a lennox pass through that works fine, but I don't like running it because I can't stand that little stream of water running down the drain. Can anyone recommend something that won't waste so much water? I really don't want to go back to that nasty drum and sponge thing, there has to be something else!

Depends on how much maintenance you want to do.

Aprilaire 400 is not a flow through, so you won't use as much water. Needs its pad changed twice a year.

Steam humidifiers use the least amount of water. but depending on water conditions, may have to clean it often.

Well I want everything, and not have to do anything.... Isn't that how most people seem to think today?

I actually looked at the Aprilaire 400 and decided to go with that. It was the only one I could find that didn't pour water down the drain. I was surprised there wasn't more options. Seems like the tree huggers would throw a fit with all that wasted water!
