Greetings! I'm trying to decide which type to install. We have recently done a big remodel to our older home, which included adding Central AC to the entire house and forced hot air to the new parts of the house for heat while retaining the radiators we had in the old house for heat there. Now, we need to add humidification as the house is very dry (it's always been dry, even before the addition). I've been given differing opinions on which type of humidifier unit to install, steam versus pad type evaporative. I'm not afraid of diy heavy systems and have been keeping up with the filter changes on the new units, so differences in maintenance don't bother me, within reason ;-) Thanks in advance for your advice!
