INSTALLATION OF HUMIDISTAT
The humidistat provides automatic control of humidifiers in
central heating systems. It is designed for low voltage, wall, or
surface duct mounting and contains a SPST snap-acting dustproof
switch.
Disconnect power supply before making wiring connections
to prevent possible electrical shock and equipment damage.
Make wiring connections in accordance with Installation
Instruction supplied with the humidifier.
3. Open valve and check installation for leaks.
NOTE: Valve is self piercing on copper lines; 1/4-in. hole must
be drilled in steel or iron pipes. Use only a grounded drill or a hand
drill to avoid shock hazard. Turn off water and drain the pipe prior
to drilling 1/4-in. hole.
1. Installer must be a trained, experienced service person.
2. Disconnect power supply before beginning installation.
3. Conduct a thorough checkout before leaving installation.
Step 8—Install Humidistat and Complete Wiring
Step 1—Wall Mounting (Low Voltage)
1. Mount humidistat on inside wall or return-air duct in accordance with section INSTALLATION OF HUMIDISTAT on
page 10.
1. Choose a location for humidistat about 5 ft above floor on
inside wall with average room temperature and relative
humidity conditions. Maximum ambient temperature of selected location must not exceed 125°F. Humidistat may be
mounted directly on wall.
NOTE: Wiring must comply with national electrical code and any
local codes or ordinances that may apply. (See Fig. 17.)
2. Drill a small hole in wall and run low-voltage wiring to
location chosen. Pull about 6 in. of wire through hole. Plug
opening to prevent drafts from affecting humidistat operation.

long screws provided.
7. While holding wire in place. Mount humidistat case horizontally on duct using 2 mounting screws provided. Tighten
firmly so that gasket seals space around wires and between
case and duct. (See Fig. 21.)
6. Replace faceplate and knob.
Step 2—Duct Mounting (Low Voltage)
1. Locate humidistat at least 8 in. upstream of humidifier in
return-air duct. If mounting near elbow area, keep device 6 in.
upstream of elbow so element will be affected by normal
airflow. (See Fig. 20.)
8. Replace faceplate and knob.
Step 3—Wiring
All wiring must comply with local codes and ordinances.
Step 4—Adjustment
2. Remove protective backing from template furnished with each
control and apply self-adhesive side on return air duct at
selected location. Following instructions on template and in
Fig. 21, drill 2 mounting holes and six 1/4-in. diameter sensing
holes in duct. Sensing holes allow return air to reach nylon
sensing element and operate humidistat.
Recommended humidistat setting should only be used as a guide.
After adjustment of setting, allow at least 5 hr for equilibrium to be
reached. Condensation on single pane windows or woodwork
indicates excessive moisture. Condensation must not be allowed to
continue for extended periods of time, or moisture damage can
result. Lower humidistat setting in small steps until condensation
disappears. However, if air is too dry, raise the setting.
NOTE: If desired, cut square hole in duct as indicated on template
as an alternative to holes.

Step 5—Operation
Recommended Humidistat Setting
When relative humidity falls to humidistat set point, the humidistat
switch makes contact and starts humidifier. In some central unit
humidifier systems, furnace fan must be operating before humidifier will start. An increase in relative humidity above set point will
stop humidifier.
Step 6—Checkout
Place system in operation and observe at least 1 complete cycle to
make certain that all components are functioning properly.
