Honeywell Furnace Humidifier

Honeywell furnace humidifierAccording to the Amazon.com Bestsellers in Furnace Humidifiers list, of the eight top-selling products, six (at the time of writing) were from Honeywell.

The Number One seller was the Honeywell HE360A Whole House Powered Humidifier (picture). A product description says:

Put an end to desert-like air in your home. The average humidity in the Sahara Desert is 25 percent. In wintertime, the average humidity inside some homes can be even lower, leading to dry skin, carpet shock, cracking woodwork and more. Reliable Honeywell Whole-House Humidifiers work with your homes furnace to maintain a proper, comfortable humidity level throughout the home. Fan powered flow thru, whole house humidification. Low maintenance. Includes PerfectFlo water distribution tray. Low water usage. Compact to allow mounting in more applications. Mounts on supply plenum.

At Buzzillions this particular model had received 11 customer reviews, with an average of 3.7 stars (out of five). Here is a four-star review:

Selected the 360A after reviewing the other brands and because of the simple installation and looks. Only had one opening to cut and the unit instructions were good. The only suggestions is that the unit works best if wired into the blower circuit which allows the unit to best keep the home at a healthy moisture level. Unit is working as I write.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

At Amazon.com there were eight customer reviews, with six of these four-star or five-star reviews. Here is an excerpt from a lengthy five-star review:

I installed the HE360A onto a new Ruud 95%+ high-efficiency dual-stage heating and cooling system and I'm controlling the unit with a Ritetemp 6080 thermostat. The humidifier works beautifully, and based upon my research with heating and cooling specialists, this unit is optimally-designed to conserve power and to protect the heating and cooling system. Bypass units (that use a piece of ducting connecting the return and supply sides of the system) rob the heating system's efficiency and will push moist air through the system.

Installing this unit on the supply side of the ductwork ensures that all of the humidified air will be moved into the home, not back into the system. While this design does use more water than some other units, the savings in power and the increased efficiency of the unit will minimize its financial impact. By the way, I attached the unit to a hot water supply, not cold, as this helps the moisture to be absorbed into the heated air.

The newer Honeywell humidifiers create steam to humidify the air. While this is probably optimal for humidification purposes and should minimize the amount of water used, the amount of electricity these systems use to create the steam will definitely impact your pocketbook.

From a "green" perspective, I find that water is a cheaper and more renewable resource than electrical power. The old-fashioned drum humidifier units will save water, but use a holding tray of water to soak a pad that the air travels through. If not cleaned thoroughly and often, they develop mold and mildew and that will get circulated through your house... a very dangerous and unhealthy option.
