How is this unit any different than the Honeywell flow through/bypass ones? The Honeywell ones are bad and don't work.
Asked by: bexster
To respond to the tech support folks: thanks for taking the time to respond. The Honeywell has major solenoid issues. The air pressure switch to turn the unit on when the furnace comes on does not work. Once you get it operational, if you can, it wastes a tremendous amount of water and is designed to only put out 20-28% humidity, regardless of what setting it's on. As I already have all the holes due to the failed Honeywell experiments, I was wondering if this would perform better.

is drain required for this unit?

is drain required for this unit?
Asked by: Baga
Yes. Water is released in short bursts at the top of the unit and trickles down through the pad. Excess water runs out the bottom through a hose to a floor drain or equivalent.

PEX Water Supply

I only have PEX piping for my water supply in my home as it is new construction and this is all that was used. Am I unable to use the included water valve connection to connect my water supply? is there an alternative method I can use to make this connection?
Asked by: dasmikechen
You would need to use an adapter first before connecting to the water supply.

Mounting on warm air plenum

My furnace has the return air duct below the motor and the warm air plenum above it, so they are separated by a good 3 feet from each other. I think in this case I need to install the humidifier on the warm air side, but will it work as well? What is the compromise if both the bypass and the unit are mounted on the plenum? Since there is no fan, I don't see how the air will go through the unit...
Asked by: Jacs
My installation required mounting the unit on the hot air plenum and feeding the air back to the cold plenum and it worked great. Rigid duct work was used instead of the supplied flexible duct. The air in the hot plenum is being forced and will try to escape through any opening. The cold air plenum is at a lower pressure and will draw the moistened air from the unit.

Customer Reviews

Whole House Furnace Mount Flow Through Humidifier is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Need to replace this humidifier I bought this humidifier, and I am now looking to replace it with a steam humidifier after one winter of use. This simply did not produce sufficient humidity because it would only operate with the heat cycles of the furnace. The installation was straightforward, but that didn't help increase the humidity. I even bought extra filter elements thinking this unit would surely revolve my dryness problems because it was mounted directly to the furnace ductwork. While the tech support guy was very helpful at Hamilton he simply confirmed that this unit would not produce sufficient humidity when paired up with my high efficiency furnace. I ultimately had to replace my wine rack because the drawers in it seized due to the excessive dryness all while running this humidifier. I have nothing against Hamilton just the effectiveness of this unit.

The directions that came with the unit were older and were missing critical info of the sensor placement. I downloaded the updated directions that solved the problem. Depending on your system it is unlikely to have this work on both the heat cycle and fan only cycle. I called the product help line. The folks there were very knowledgable of their product and how to set it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Humidifier for the Price and Everything Needed for a Typical Installation is Included I have owned a 12HF for several years and have had good luck with my unit and recommended it to a neighbor that had mentioned their house gets dry in the winter. I did my own installation, so I offered to help them once they received their humidifier and a little over 2 hours later they were set. What I like about this unit compared to other brands is that it comes with everything needed for typical applications in one box and it has a plug-in transformer so no hardwiring is involved. Plus, it uses a lot less water than most other brands out there; the water valve on most flow through style units is completely open when there is a call for humidity, but this unit adds water in pulsed intervals. Lastly, maintenance is very low. I just put in a new evaporator pad at the beginning of each season and wipe out the shallow drain pan area to remove any mineral build-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hamilton Humidifier Easy to install. Only minimal sheet metal alteration required. Home Depot met all expectations and then some. I felt unit was fairly priced and customer service by Lauren was excellent. I am recommending to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! No tanks to fill, no more shocks. Install took alittle longer than expected but I am no expert either.
