Installing A Honeywell Humidifier
Like I have stated in past posts its not always easy in this part of the country to add a humidifier, here I have a customer that is required by his doctor to bring up their humidity in their home and I was called to make that happen.
As you can see in the picture above that there is no room below the furnace to add much of anything never mind a Honeywell TrueSTEAM humidifier. I thought about the remote mount kit from Honeywell but I would still have no room to do even that.
So the only solution is to raise the furnace and install a taller base can, then installing the Honeywell TrueSTEAM humidifier on to that base can. As you can see I raised the unit about 26″ and extended the gas line and shortened the return and venting. I also had to replace the existing thermostat with a Honeywell VisionIAQ, This thermostat can handle both the heating and humidity.
The reason I chose a 9.0 GPD versus a 6.0 is because of the hardwood floors that are under the rugs. I have been encountered problems using the recommended size chart that Honeywell recommends when it comes to hardwood floors.
