Five years ago we built a 1750 sq ft Log Home in Southern New Brunswick and have been heating it with a Soapstone Woodstove. Last year we took advantage of a government grant and installed a Mitsubishi Zuba Central Heat Pump. The unit works well but the air is cool and dry.Shortly after the heating season started we started to have problems with cracking of the cedar logs and pine purlins. I bought a Honeywell Quickteam humidifier which has helped buy has to be filled 4 times a day and if I forget the humidity drops.
I want to install a whole house humidifier attached to my HVAC, Our HVAC is in a 4 ft high crawl space so I want a humidifier that would require little serving . I am considering the Honeywell Truesteam 9 gallon humidifier. Would the Truesteam do the job? Does anyone have any input regarding humidifier and log homes?
