Do you have any recommendations for a whole house humidifier?

Asked by tedibear (16393 points ) November 10th, 2012

We are considering adding a whole house humidifier to our current furnace/central air system. We had an Aprilaire (sp?) brand in the condo years ago and it seemed to work well. We will consider that brand, but I was wondering if any jellies had other recommendations.

If you do have a recommendation, what did you like about it? How long did it last?

My husband is researching this too, but I thought I would ask the collective as well.

We use an Aprilaire. That’s because our heater service sells them. Before that, we used a Kenmore. It wore out after while. I have a feeling that’s what happens with these items. They aren’t constructed very well. They aren’t expensive.

I’d go with whatever my guy sold me. Unless you want to install it yourself. I doubt you’ll have much choice, and I also doubt it makes too much difference. Have you researched it yet? Looked at reviews? If I were going to shop for one and install it myself, that’s what I’d do. But otherwise it seems like it’s too much hassle. Just go with the service guy’s recommendation.

Thank you, @wundayatta. I do think we’re going to go with Aprilaire. And yes, my husband is doing more research.
