I just installed a Honeywell HE360A humidifer to my furnace to replace an old Generalaire 800. The old unit was tapped into the cold water line. I currently have the Honeywell wired to run everytime the furnace receives a call for heat, and have noticed the humidity levels remain in a comfortable range.
My thermostat (Ritetemp 8085C) has a built in humidistat, but it always triggers the blower when it senses low humidity (even if there isn't a call for heat). This is why I haven't been using it's thermostat.
Would attaching the humidifier to the hot water line help increase the evaporative capacity?
I'm curious if most people hook their humidifiers up to the hot water line or cold. Honeywell says you can use either.
Thanks for the advice!
