    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I bought two of them and they stoped working after couple weeks. Don't recommend them. I'm really upset of the quality. Hope Honeywell send me a new one. It is not cheap to keep buying one everytime it breaks

Installation was relatively simple and took about four hours. Hardest part was figuring out where to route the drain. Humidity in our house is now a comfortable 40% versus teh 12% prior to installation. Highly recommend!

I installed it on the return side of the furnace due to space limitations. From start to finish it took about four hours to install. So far so good. I wanted to give it three stars because I can’t really evaluate it’s performance yet but for some reason I couldn’t change it to three stars, it was stuck on 5.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad experience! Stuck with a broken humidifier I bought this product about a year ago. Stopped working. No water coming out: despite 24VAC going to solenoid (which gets warm to the touch) no click, no water out. No visible obstructions, clean filter. Dipped the actuator in CLR, no change. Nevermind that in general these solenoid valves go for $100 (OEM), but wasted 2 hours on the phone with Honeywell, who first told me there is no replacement part, then gave me the part number for an HE360, which has different fittings. Waste of time. So, after spending considerable time installing it in first place a year ago, now either have to buy something else, or might as well buy a new HE280, as filter, fittings, and solenoid by themselves would cause just as much.

    Does this attach to the HRV if you have one or a furnace? Just bought a new house and the RHL is in the high 20s.

    Asked by: eejay
    Hello eejay! When installing the Honeywell Whole House Bypass Humidifier, here are some suggestions on where to mount the humidifier: • Select a location for the humidifier on the supply (warm air stream) or the return plenum. • Select a location for the bypass on the opposite plenum. The sidewalls of the humidifier are interchangeable to allow bypass duct mounting on either side of the humidifier. • Select a location that cannot damage the air conditioner A-coil during installation. • Select a location where the 6 ft (1.86m) of 6 in. (155 mm) duct provided is adequate to connect the humidifier to the bypass. You will also want to ensure that the humidifier is not located on a furnace body, allow adequate clearance in front and above the unit so that you can remove the cover if needed, mount the unit at least 3 in. above the furnace body to allow enough space for the solenoid valve to drain and mount the unit ins conditioned space to prevent freezing. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Does HomeDepot install the humidifier

    Asked by: Less1leg
    Yes, homedepot offers a full range of installation services. Head to the contractor services desk and arrange a quote or install. Also, most local heating and cooling contractors are able to install these units, just check qualifications.

    howmuch water does it use

    Asked by: Anonymous
    If you direct wire the unit into the furnace, very little because it only turns on when the furnace calls for heat. If you use the transformer in the box, it will use the 17 gal per day as the water continuously flows through. Have a pro install, can't go wrong.

    I have space limitations so must find a unit that will fit on the side of my cold air return duct. How much surface is required to instal this unit?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The unit itself is 9" deep by 16" wide give or take. Including required clearance below, it is about 22" tall.
