Hello all, I am thinking of installing a Aprilaire 800 steam unit to my central heating and cooling system. Are there any benifits of installing the unit before the coil or after the coil (return or supply) with out the heating system on just the fan. The reason I ask it would be easier for me on the return side then the supply side because the unit is located in a crawl space/attic very tight and less water line I would have to run. Can the water from the unit drian through the condensation line that the A/C uses through the roof to outside. Any ideas or comments would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks A

Hi Marty, all I have to say is DA!!!!!! I forgot about that. Boy, don't I feel like an A!!!... Can I mount it in a closet and run the steam hose to the unit? It might be a 20' or less run, do u think it would drastically loose it's effectiveness at max run(20')? What would the max run be for a setup like that? My house is 1500 sqft. and my problem is low humidity (23 - 32%) upstairs and down stairs because I run two pellet stoves through the winter months. Any input on anything for my type of system (Attic/crawl space) would be appreciated and Marty good catch. Thanks A

It should be ok at 20 foot. You'll need to set it up for its max capacity.
