My new humidifier not working well


Yuri-
Can a new current sensing relay be inserted as in diagram 5?
Then the fan setting would turn on the furnace blower and humidifier?

also: if humidifier is on supply side, does humidistat go on the return side?

Humidistat always mounts on return when duct mounting it. Since 70 degree air at 45% RH when heated to 120 degrees would only be an RH of 10%.
