Humidifiers

PostBy: Horace On: Sun Nov 30, 2008 12:00 pm

Along with the colder weather and burning a stove comes hot, very dry air in the house. In order to keep my daughters comfortable, I run a warm mist humidifier in their bedroom at night, but would like something a little bigger for the rest of the house or at least the basement where the stove is.

Is anyone using a humidifier in their house that they can recommend?

I use a Skuttle whole house steam humidifier hooked up to my furnace, when it runs it helps circulate the heat from the coal stove.

It has a water filter and automatic flush to keep this hard water from clogging it up, I only clean it at the end of the season.

Thanks, everyone. It's amazing that I work so hard to get the water out of the air during the summer, and now I'm trying to get it back INTO the air during winter.
