    I have a mist humidifier installed just above the blower assy. When taking it off to inspect the ductwork behing it, it was pretty cruddy. Clumps of gray dust stuck to the ductwork, and some light corrosion.

    Should I just turn off the water supply to it, and not use it anymore?

    mist humidifiers are bad for any system using metal ductwork

    They make good outside misters for cooling you off in the summer.

    Guess I'll either shut off the water valve to it or disconnect it completely.

    This is a great forum, and has been educational for me. Thanks.
