  • Central humidifier works well

    Mar 5, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good documentation/Instructions/Video. High capacity (18 gal/day). Good value.
    Cons: Requires installation kit. Takes time/talent to install. Wastes water and needs drain.

    Summary: Faced with maintaining humidity for the Steinway Grand Piano in the living room. Humidity during the winter months dropped to about 18% RH; Way too low for the piano wood. Was considering room-level humidifier but decided to try this house-wide ... read more

    Pros: Effectively humidifies a 3,000 square foot home.  Relatively easy to install. 
    Cons: Poor installation instructions.  Customer support from overseas if you need assistance. 

    Summary: I installed this unit on my furnace last week and have been satisfied with the results.  As stated in the other reviews, the installation can be tricky and will take a good 3 hours if you don't have experience installing humidifiers.  A ... read more

  • High Maintenance!

    Pros: Humidifies the air WHEN it's working.
    Cons: Poor plastic housings that crack. LEAKS a LOT! High maintenance just to keep it working.

    Summary: I have had a very bad experience with this unit. It was installed in 1999 and has been a big disappointment. It is poorly designed & built. The plastic housing has cracked in several places. Super glue & metal duct tape are currently holding it together. ... read more

  • Straightforward installation, but much more than the advertised 1 hour.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very effective unit, uncomplicated installation. Low maintenance, 5 year warantee.
    Cons: Installation can be time consuming. Needs 110 volt outlet and floor drain.

    Summary: I recently installed one because my wife began complaining of dry, cracking skin. The unit works very well, I believe that its power fan makes it more effective than the lower cost simple bypass units. The fact that it uses an evaporative pad should ... read more

    Pros: Works good, fairly easy install.
    Cons: Expensive parts.

    Summary: Works good, need to be somewhat handy to install.  If you have hard water, plan on replacing the solenoid after 3-4 years.  $85.00 part.  If you do have hard water, install a manual shutoff valve on the supply line.  This way, in the ... read more

    Pros: It's better than nothing.
    Cons: Wasteful<br>Hard to seal airleaks<br>Longevity is questionable.

    Summary: In spite of having a bad and expensive experience w/ a Honeywell electronic air filter, I figured that a humidifier would be a simpler item to engineer and that Honeywell might get it right. Wrong.As other reviewers have said, this unit leaks a ... read more

    Pros: OK when running
    Cons: Problem with transformer on PC board.

    Summary: I had a HE365a installed in December of 2007. It ran for about one year - then no fan no water. Had the installer come out and replace the PWB assembly. Ran for about year. Same issue this year. There is a problem with the power transformer on these ... read more

    Summary: I bought this unit a few days ago and have been very pleased with the performance thus far. It raised the humidity in my house from 23% TO 40% in about an hour and has held it steady since. The installation took about 3 hours and was pretty straight ... read more
