    Yes, doing the mod control, our place is crazy dry during the winter and our current humidifier seems to be meant for show.

    Over sized furnace doesn't run long enough for it to work.

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

    Mr. Bill ask's how long does a furnace have to run before it works.

    You had to read the humidifier discussion too, to understand that one.

    BEENTHERE makes a point you didn't pursue very far.

    You should not need a humidifier for such a small space. Indicates you have way too much leakage. You are already loosing too much moisture, a humidifier is likely to create durability/rot/mold issues.

    Air seal the place. Reduce your energy bill, drafts, furnace wear and tear, increase comfort...
    Which makes more sense to you?
    CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
    ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%

    DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
    What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!

    Energy Obese? An audit is the next step - go to BPI.org, or RESNET, and find an auditor near you.

    So you're saying I should get UV and ozone installed as well.

    Mmm, no. I believe uv lights are energy wasting placeebos.

    Thanks for everyone's help!!! The furnace is TONS quieter, the modulating works great, any comments on the install? It took two guys 13.5 hours to do.
