    Alright, thanks. I'll mention it to the company.

    Air leakage has to be the issue since there wouldn't be anything else that could lower the humidity. I did some research on this and I did come...

    It's connected to the cold water line, thanks for mentioning. I've always heard about humidifiers operating a little more efficient if connected to the hot water line. Is this true?

    Did some more thinking, the vents could just be used for the heat transfer in the fireplaces and nothing else (the upper vents at least).

    Low humidity problems in winter

    Sup' yall, It has been a while since spending time on the forum.

    Thanks! Hopefully this new return will solve most of the heating issues in the bedroom this Fall/Winter after its installed.

    Still not letting me attach photo, however.

    Thanks. So another thing I'll mention to the technician, as well as register choice and the need for another return.

    To add to my latest post from yesterday, both 12" returns ducts are each connected to 14x14 return grilles. Are those grilles too small due to the size of the ducts?

    Thanks for your input. Btw, the bedroom size is 16x16, NOT 16x20 as said before. My mistake. All of the supply ducts come off a plenum located on top of the AHU. I never mentioned this before, but...
