I. Principle of Operation
You have purchased a humidifier that operates on the evaporative
principle. It will provide the proper relative humidity (see operating
instructions) all during the heating season. It is very possible that you
have questions concerning what your humidifier can do for you, and
what you should do to receive maximum benefits from it. This booklet is
intended to answer these questions.
The humidifier operates in conjunction with the furnace blower
motor. When the humidifier control calls for humidity and the blower
motor is operating, water flows to the distribution tray located at the top
of the humidifier. The water is uniformly distributed across the width of
the tray and through a scientifically designed system of outlets. It flows
by gravity over the humidifier pad. Dry, hot air is moved through the
moisture-laden humidifier pad where evaporation takes place. The
now-humidified air carries moisture in vapor form throughout the home.
The correct water flow is determined by an orifice in each
humidifier. When the humidifier is operating, there will be a small,
steady stream of water to drain, which flushes away most of the
trouble-causing minerals. Do not use the saddle valve to regulate the
water flow. It is designed to be completely opened or closed.
The minerals and solid residue not trapped by the replaceable
humidifier pad are flushed down the drain. The drain also eliminates the
problems caused by stagnant water. This is the most effective and least
expensive method to dispose of trouble-causing minerals.
Trouble-free performance and minimum maintenance are assured
by the design features of the humidifier. All humidifier housing parts that
come in contact with water are non-metal (except for the valve and
humidifier pad) and will never rust or corrode. Neither heat nor water
will affect them under normal operating conditions.
4
The humidifier pad, designed especially for uniform, high
evaporation, and the Scale Control Insert also efficiently trap mineral
deposits which are often the cause of damage to working parts in
ordinary humidifiers. No “white dust” can be distributed throughout the
living quarters. The humidifier pad must be in good condition to assure
high capacity trouble-free performance. It should be changed annually
with the exception of the Water Saver humidifier which should be
replaced at least twice per heating season.
Older design water distribution trays have a granular coating in the
bottom of the distribution tray to provide equal distribution of water to
each of the openings assuring an even flow over the humidifier pad. Do
not clean the mineral scale off the bottom of the water distribution tray
at the end of the humidification season. If the granular coating is
removed, it is not necessary to purchase a new distribution tray. You
can accomplish the same uniform performance by applying a small
amount of liquid dishwashing soap over the entire inside surface of the
water distribution tray. This will allow the water to flow evenly through
each of the openings, provided the humidifier is level, in order to
achieve maximum capacity.
The current distribution tray which incorporates a synthetic fabric
liner that replaces the granular coating, is designed to deliver water
uniformly over the entire top surface of the humidifier pad, provided it is
mounted level. It is normal for some mineral deposits to form in the
distribution tray as it dries out between humidification cycles. These
deposits can actually help distribute water in the tray, but if they form
enough to block the openings, they should be removed as described in
the “Periodic Preventative Maintenance” section of this manual.

II. Operating Instructions
Your humidifier is controlled by a manual humidifier control,
HumidiTrac™ or Thermidistat™, installed either in the living area or in
the cold air return.
Automatic Humidifier Control: (for Manual Humidifier Control – see page 8)
Your HumidiTrac™ Control is installed in the cold air return. During the
first heating season, your HumidiTrac™ Control needs to be set initially to
match your home’s condition. Please follow these steps when adjusting
your control (refer to Figure A).
1. Turn the dial setting knob to “5,” which is within the normal range.
During the next 24-48 hours it may be necessary to adjust the dial
for more or less humidity, depending on your personal comfort and
home’s requirements. Refer to “TABLE 1 – Operation Guide”.
2. During the coldest portion of the first heating season, minor
adjustments may be necessary. This is dependent upon your
individual home construction, refer to “TABLE 1 – Operation Guide”.

operate, consult your air conditioning and
heating dealer.
Test mode
System operation is checked by setting
the knob to “Test.” Make certain furnace and
blower are operating. Humidifier will
operate for one minute.
The relative humidity in your home
will now be accurately controlled to
meet your needs and should not
need further adjustment during
future heating seasons. Make note
of the dial setting in the event you
temporarily move the knob when
performing annual maintenance of
the Humidifier.

Condensation on windows
Your Automatic Humidifier, is a high precision system that will
accurately maintain the relative humidity in your home. For every 1°F
change in outdoor temperature, the control will automatically adjust
the indoor relative humidity (RH) by 1/2%. If you would like to
determine the RH in your home, follow these steps:
1. Determine the outdoor temperature.
2. Activate the furnace blower by setting your thermostat fan switch
to the “On” position, or setting your thermostat to a higher
temperature.
3. Turn the control dial setting to the “Off” position. Then, slowly turn
the dial clockwise until you hear the solenoid valve “click on.”
Next, slowly turn the dial counter-clockwise until you hear the
solenoid valve “click off.” At this point, make note of the dial
setting.
4. Locate your dial setting on Table 2. Follow the dial setting to the
right until it intersects with the current outdoor temperature. This
is the relative humidity in your home under existing conditions.
5. Return the thermostat and the Humidifier Control to their original
settings.

As an example, if the outdoor temperature is 20°F, and, following step 3,
the humidifier turns off at “5” on the dial range, then the RH in your home is 35%.
The HumidiTrac™ Control will accurately control the humidity in your
home to a maximum of 45% RH and a minimum of 10% RH. The values
of outdoor temperature and dial settings may fall in between or outside
of the listed values in Table 2. In these cases, you can only approximate
your home’s actual indoor RH.

To check the humidifier’s operation, note the current setting
and set the HumidiTrac™ Control to the Test mode when the furnace
blower motor is operating. Water will flow into the humidifier for
1 minute and then it will turn off. This insures the humidifier is
operating properly. Do not leave the control in the test mode as it
will not operate. Reset the control to it’s original setting.
Note: Turning the knob to “Test” resets the Humidifier Pad Change
Indicator timer.
Manual Humidifier Control or HumidiTrac™ in Manual Mode:
(for Automatic Humidifier Control – see page 6)
Your humidifier is controlled by a humidifier control installed either
in the living area (typically near the thermostat) or in the cold air return.
It is important to anticipate a drop in outdoor temperature and reduce
the setting accordingly to avoid excessive condensation. For example,
with an outdoor temperature of 20°F (-7°C) the correct setting will be
35% relative humidity. If the temperature is expected to fall to 0°F
(-18°C) that evening, then merely reduce the setting to 25% several
hours prior to the temperature change.
The recommended settings on the humidifier control are based on
years of research (see Table 3) and experience as to what is best for
the average home. These settings represent a compromise between RH
levels that would be most desirable for comfort reasons and humidity
levels that are suitable for protection of your home. For example, a
wintertime indoor RH of 50% may be considered ideal by some, but
unfortunately, it probably would result in damage to your home.
Observance of the recommended RH levels on your humidifier control,
therefore, is an important safeguard. Condensation of water on inside
windows in the form of fogging or frost is usually an indication that the
relative humidity is too high. This same condensation can take place in
other areas in your home with the possibility of damage resulting.
The Humidifier Control is a precision instrument that can be used
to determine the RH accurately in your home during the winter. Turn the
dial to the lowest setting, then reverse the dial direction slowly until a
“click” is heard. At this point, read the RH on the dial. This will be very
close to the actual RH in your home.
To check the humidifier operation, set the humidifier control
above the click point, make sure that the water saddle valve is open
and that there is electricity to the humidifier. Generally, the furnace
and blower motor must be operating for the humidifier control to
function. After the humidifier has operated for several minutes and
water is entering the humidifier and coming out at the drain, reduce
the humidifier control setting below the click point and the humidifier
should automatically shut off. Now set the humidifier control dial at
the recommended inside relative humidity, depending on the outside
temperature. Follow the suggested settings prior to a drop in the
outside temperature.
Additional Information
Be sure to keep fireplace dampers closed when not in use.
They provide an excellent escape route for heat, as well as humidity.
Humidity is lost at an even faster rate than heat because water vapor
tends to seek its own level and your humidifier would not be able to
replace it even when running at full capacity.
On occasion, indoor moisture producing activities such as clothes
drying, cooking, showers, etc., may raise the relative humidity level
higher than it should be, even though the Humidifier is not operating.
Telltale indications, again, are condensation or frost on cold surfaces
such as windows, doors, walls, etc. If such condensation persists for
several hours, your home should be ventilated to dissipate the
potentially damaging excess moisture.

III. Effect of Water Characteristics
VI. Periodic Preventative Maintenance
Your humidifier will operate effectively using either hard or
mechanically softened water.
Any type of water (hard, soft, hot, or cold) is acceptable for use
with the drain-type humidifiers. Hot supply water, 125°F (52°C)
maximum, is recommended for all heat pump applications. The use of
hot supply water will also increase the amount of humidity generated
in other applications. The heat in the water increases evaporation and
the water going to the drain is cold to the touch. For better performance
it is recommended that soft (reduced minerals) or filtered water be
supplied to the humidifier pad. This can help reduce the amount of
scale and mineral deposits that can accumulate on the pad.
NOTE: Periodic inspection and preventative maintenance of your
total heating system is important for efficient and safe operation. Your
dealer will include humidifier service during a maintenance inspection.
Your humidifier is equipped with an in-line water strainer and
orifice as shown below. These parts should be inspected and cleaned
periodically to ensure continued proper humidifier performance.
