Need humidifier recommendation
I did not ask for expertise, advice or theory. I asked for simple product information. After my initial query, I found the best available humidifier option I was willing to consider. Although I didn't specify at the time, it is a new aprilaire 700, available to me without the controls. I did check this out, not only with an aprilaire engineer but with a retired HVAC designer/manufacturer and a HVAC contractor who has been in the business for slightly over 35 years. They told me it would indeed humidify my house but at the risk of very inefficient operation and potential problems with my ductboard supply system. This, and practical experience, assured me that it would work but not up to my expectations. I advised any potential readers that I've made a decision.
At that point, your resident expert started chiming in with his unsolicited and incorrect advice. As for the others who chose to become involved, they offered nothing pertinent to any portion of the discussion, only cheap shot remarks so typical of the arrogance displayed by HVAC "experts" who hang out around the various forums.
I sincerely thank you all for absolutely nothing.
