    There is some disagreement about that.
    Honeywell published something a few years ago stating that because evaporating water from the pad cools the air, you must factor in the cost of reheating the air. They claimed that the reheat cost offsets the cost of electricity to boil the water and therefore the operating costs are the same.
    Flow-through humidifiers do not evaporate all the water so you need to include the cost of the water that rinses the pad and goes down the drain.
