I have a by-pass humidifier (do-it-yourself type) on the supply side of the furnace. It seems that no matter what I do I cannot get the humidity in the house to rise. I doubled checked the capacity, hookup, installation, etc. of the humidifier with no problems. I played with the air-control settings of the unit without any success. Are these units really that good or are they just a waste of money?

The unit had two ways to install: place the unit on the supply side or the return side with the by-pass duct running to the opposite side. Due to space reasons I had to place the unit on the supply side. I made sure the humidistat was above the by-pass duct entrance on the return side.

To me it seems that with this setup not much of the humidified air would ever get to the rest of the house, due to this recirculating air pattern. Any suggestion? Thanks for all replies.
