Installing a Furnace Humidifier
I am wanting to install a furnace humidifier unit.

Most units at local building supply store look fairly simple to install,
however the air intact/outlets on my furnace are fiberglass and not
sheet metal. Of course, all of the installation instructions i have looked
at show the sheet metal installation and not fiberglass so, here is the
question of the day: can these humidifier units be installed on the fiberglass
inlet/outlets and, if so, is there anything extra that should be done for reinforcing said unit

everyones help is appreciated!:thumbup:

Aprilaire units(turning wheel with the round absorber plates) mount on the discharge duct just down from the furnace and hold about a gallon of water at 8lbs + the could support the opening that the humidifier will slide into from the ceiling with 2" bands of sheet metal shaped around the 3 sides of the duct and secured into the ceiling.if the duct runs along a wall a shelf built out to hold the humidifier might work
