Default Lennox headoffice contact?

I installed a new Lennox G61MPV furnace and a new Honeywell HE225 humidifier. Found the humidifier is SOLELY controlled by the furnace's heating time, which I suppose it should control by the Humidistat and Fan. My local installer just stopped their service after installation and dragging on my problem without any solution.

How should we wire the Furnace to the Humidifier, so that the Humidifier ONLY control by the FAN and HUMIDISTAT. Not SOLELY control by the furnace, which now the humidifier only work when the furnace heat is kicking in.

Or someone can tell me Lennox headoffice's email address for me to contact them on this problem and correct wiring.

Now I put pots of water everywhere in my house to protect my rose wood furniture and piano. At nigh, I have to have a portable humidifier in my bedroom in order to sleep well. Now is dry.

Thank you.

was this ever resolved? If no, how is the Humidifier currently wired and what humidistat are you using?

Sounds like you have a problum with the installer not Lenox. I'm sure they would like to know if one of there installers is messing up, but I'd be calling someone else to do the future work.

You are very correct. I won't call this company any more.

You can also purchase a piano humidifier.

Wire the humidistat in parallel with the fan circuit so when both the fan comes on & the stat calls for humidity , it will humidify. Just make sure your transformer is capable of the extra current.

If the humidifier in question doesn't have it's own blower, then it is useless to run it without the furnace. The furnace supplies the airflow that the humidifier needs.

It would have to be wired into the fan circuit of the furnace so you can set the fan to "On" versus "Auto" and would open the solenoid valve for the water supply when the fan is running.
