Questions & Answers

What is the water flow rate?

If set to the highest humidity level, what is the water usage in 24 hours?
Asked by: StansDIY
Turn a faucet on as little as you can for a steady flow. That's about it. When I was on city water I saw no difference in my bill. That makes sense as the unit only uses water when the furnace fan is running, not at all in the summer and none when the hunidistat setting has been reached. Taking a wild guess, maybe a gallon or so every 24 hrs? It's not much. The feed is just a 1/4" tube.

Can this unit be turned around that the intake is on the left side. I have a gas pipe that will not allow this configuration.
Asked by: Poudrekeg
Yes the sides can be swapped to customize the unit as required. Refer to the installation instructions (page 9, step 11).

You don't have to use the transformer if your furnace has a 24v output next to were your existing thermostat connects. Mine does so I didn't have to worry about finding or running a nearby receipt. Works great. No more dryness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install although the instructions are not the greatest. If you can have a valve installed... Easy to install although the instructions are not the greatest. If you can have a valve installed for your water supply rather than piercing a pipe. Also pay closes attention to line 12 on page 5 as if you have these tubes flipped your pressure switch will not work and you will think the unit is defective. Figured that one out after setting the whole thing up and it was not working gave the manual a better read and it was as easy as flipping those 2 tubes as mine was installed on the return side not the supply side. Good luck

While I am hopeful for a long term solution to humidify my home, out of the box failure is not a good place to start. Since it is sold by retail stores to residential customers who are generally not professionals, the installation instructions are poorly written for novice type weekend warriors. I recommend using a licensed contractor for this installation. Once installed you should hope the pressure switch works and water flows. My first unit did not. I had to buy a second unit and return the first. The second worked immediately. Forget about Honeywell online web chat and phone technical support. The call goes to an offshore call center and will leave you waiting 30-60 minutes every time before the call is picked up. There are much better options out there at similar or less cost.....avoid this one.

I bought He280 last week from Home Depot (Toronto) and installed it and is working, no problem so far, but I should mention that your demensions are wrong. My unit (He280) is approximately 12 1/2"W x 15 1/2"H x 9 1/2"D. I checked Honeywell site and they do not show the demensions in the specifications. Now the review: The heated air from supply duct flows through the filter (pad), then through the by-pass, and to the return duct to be recycled back to the furnace. The size of the by-pass duct (6" diameter) is approximately 9% of the size of furnace output duct; that means you lose 9% of the furnace output power all the time (heated air is being recycled without heating your home). Given the fact that passing through the pad is not as easy (as going free), you are still losing about 5% of the furnace output plus the electricity that is used for the operation of the humidifier. I believe the product design is flawd. I am challanging Honeywell to proove it otherwise

The static has been noticeably reduced in our home. The installation was of the humidifier was not very complicated. I did watch a few youtube videos while researching this particular humidifier so I had a good idea of what I was needing to do. I would measure the surrounding area of where you would like to mount the unit to make sure it will fit. Installation took about an hour and a half. The humidifier has several settings, being in the midwest where it very dry during the winter we keep ours set to the ON position so it runs every time the furnace turns on. It is absolutly helping with static, dry skin and nose bleeds.
