    Whole house humidifier

    Has anyone here installed a self-contained whole house humidifier? I'm looking between the Aprilaire 360 and the Fedders/Trion 707u. I'm leaning towards the 707u because it only requires a cold water supply and no drain while the 360 needs a hot water supply and a drain. Just looking for opinions if anyone has used either (or a similar type unit).

    Why are you considering a self contained humidifier? The question should be, how much and how important is humidity to you.

    I mainly looking to get through the dry winter air(sore throats, dry skin, ...). The main reason I'm looking for a permanent unit is because I'm lazy. I hate filling up console units every day. I would rather spend a few hours and install a plumbed permanent unit than have to deal with the mess of filling a console unit every day over the winter.

    The Aprilaire is probably your better choice.

    Mister systems can be more problematic, then anything.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
