Post furnace model # and whether water supply and a drain is in proximity of furnace. Pic of ductwork would help.

There are many brands and at least 3 types.

Skuttle and Aprilaire are very popular. As long as you have a blower fan, any humidifier will add moisture.

Adding sensors (inside/outside temps etc) will automate vs. manual.

Some have reservoirs and use less water (but water is standing/not turned over). Bypass types use more water. Steam types work the best but are expensive and can clog with hard water mineral deposits.

Query the HVAC site. There are many opinions.
