Just curious...In my other homes I had a drum-type humidifier on the furnace, the kind where you have to change the media pad and clean out the water pan. In my second home I had an Aprilaire humidifier, the kind where the water drips through a media filter, and out the bottom to the drain. I thought that the Aprilaire humidifier worked better than the Honeywell, based on the more consistent humidity readings from the humidistat.
My question -- does anyone have a preference for either type of humidifie? I currently have a Honeywell humidifier, and it's a real nuisance having to clean it each month. I'd prefer the other type where you only have to change the media insert once a year.
