Honeywell HE225 humidifier
I newly installed a Honeywell HE225 Humidifier. Found my house humidity is always below 26% which I need at least 35% for my comfort. I have the furnace blower keep ON continuously but doesn't help. Talked to the installer, they said that's it, unless I pay another $2000-+ for one with motor. I don't want to pay them $2000-+, as my old one (drum design) never give me this problem, why this new one does?
I checked and found out this HE225 only has water supplies when the furnace heat kicked in. I go searched internet, have got many different reasons which I cannot really understand how they work, or are they standard if I buy the Honeywell HE255; this included install: Sensing Relay; Sail Switch, Supply power direct to Humidifier etc etc. Very confusing to me!
Is there any one can help me to understand all these, and is my installer missing something, or purposely did not install something, so they can ask for more money?
