    H/O wants a humidifier and only possible option that I can find is a Humid-a-mist. The problem is I have never installed on of these and know nothing about its problems or lack thereof. Any one out there with experience on these that can help me out? Please?

    If it sprays through a nozzle directly into the air stream, then I dont recomend it. I have seen them cause more harm then good and they become clogged easily.

    i agree w/ coolwhip on the misting types.

    i don't know if this will help, but skuttle makes a flow-through under duct mounted type. i've never installed one and have only encountered one.

    there used to be a skuttle rep on here, try a search maybe you can find him.

    humidifier

    Yes, I was refering to a nozzle induced misting spray. This is a counterflow furnace in a closet configuration and I just dont have room for anything else. Anybody out there have any other suggestions? For the humidifier I mean!

    did one, took out a few days later.

    Maybe a central humidifier, wall mounted. Aprilaire makes one. Goes in closet or in basement space, can be ducted or has a supply grill on end of unit through wall.

    we use the mister type humidifiers on counterflow systems around here. one town of mostly slab houses with concrete pit for plenumn. would not use on metal duct in crawl space. usually add extension pipe after solenoid valve to get nozzle down below a/c coil. nozzles usually last at least one season.
