During the heating season, your holne can becolne uncolnfortably dry. This is because cold winter air holds very little lnoisrare. When outdoor air is warmed to average rooln telnperamre,
its relative hulnidity £hlls to even lower levels. Refer to Table 1
for a comparison of the levels of relative humidity for a few sample enviromnents.

Parched air can cause the wood used in the construction of your
house and furnishings to dry, crack, aM split. Draperies and upholstery may age prelnaturely. Amaoying static electric shock
and cling are lnore prevalent. Your tlaoat, nasal passages, sinuses, and skin are more susceptible to irritating dryness. You
may even have to set the therlnostat higher than otherwise necessary
just to feel warm.
MOISTURE MAKES A REFRESHING DIFFERENCE
Proper hulnidity comrol can alleviate problelns caused by excessive dryness. Furnishings and fabrics take on a more lustrous
appearance. Houseplants tl_ive. Static electricity is significantly
reduced in a properly hulnidified home. Your £hmily will breathe
lnore easily and ilnd relief from the cool, drafty feeling coinlnonly experienced in overly dry holnes. The additional lnoisture
supplied by your humidifier may enable you to reduce the temperature setting on your therlnostat
without any loss of indoor
COlnfort.
HOWYOUR HUMIDIFIERWORKS
Your hulnidifier adds water lnolecules to the air inside your
holne. Although the rate of humidification is variable, it may
exceed one-half gallon of water per hour. That's a healthy drink
for a dry household. The typical process of lmlnidification begins when water flows through the humidifier vah,e and soaks
OPERATING
YOUR HUMIDIFIER
Your new hulnidifier is designed to operate as part of your home
heating system. It will perforln at lnaximuln efciency if these
recolranendations are followed:
• The hulnidifier is comrolled by a hulnidistat. Adjust the
hulnidistat setting according to the outside telnperature. Refer
to Table 2 as a general guide. If after several days, the air in
your home seems too moist, lower the humidistat setting. Condensation on single-pane windows indicates excessive moisture. If the air is too dry, increase the setting. Dry throat and
nasal passages indicate dry air.
• All models come with a humidistat. Continuous blower operation provides for constant hulnidification. It may also contribute to greater personal COlnfort because continuous blower
operation minimizes telnperature differences throughout the
home. Furtherlnore, a system equipped with an electronic air
cleaner offers the added benefit of full-tilne air filtration.

• Supply- and return-air grilles should not be blocked by items
such as drapes, flmfiture, and toys. Restricted airflow reduces
the efficiency of the humidifier, as well as that of the whole comfort system.
• The humidifier unit lnUSt be properly lnaintained on a regular
basis.
STARTUP PROCEDURES
1. Open the saddle valve on the water supply line. (See Fig. 4.)
Set humidistat to the desired relative humidity. (See Fig. 5
and Table 2.)
2. Turn the fimmce on and adjust the therlnostat to a high temperature setting. Be sure that the fitmace blower is operating.

4. Turn off the furnace. When the blower stops, look into the
humidifier to make sure the water is not flowing into the
unit.
The Model HUMCCWTR is controlled by a float valve. Turning
off the fimmce will not affect the water flow until float level is
achieved. (See Fig. 11.)
5. Replace the cover assembly and *hsten securely.
6. Now, mrn the furnace on and set the thermostat for desired
rooln telnperature.
SHUTDOWN PROCEDURES

holds the distributor cover to the cabinet, and lift offthe cover.
Discom_ect the drain line from the sump and loosen the
thumbscrew(s) holding the sump to the cabinet. Relnove the
sump. Relnove evaporator pad assembly. (See Fig. 6 or 7,
according to the lnodel you own.)
With the proper lnaintenance and care, your humidifier will operate econolnically and dependably. Maintenance can be accomplished easily by referring to the following directions. However,
before perforlning any lnaintenance, consider these ilnportant
safety precautions:
• DISCONNECT ALL ELECTRICAL
POWER TO THE
HUMIDIFIER AND FURNACE BEFORE PERFORMING
ANY SERVICE OR MAINTENANCE
TO AVOID PERSONAL INJURY.
• To disassemble a Model HUMCCSFR the pad assembly can
be relnoved froln the side access door or the front cover. When
relnoving the side door, lift the pad asselnbly up by holding the
tabs and slide the asselnbly out. When relnoving the front cover
on Model HUMCCSFR discomaect the quick comaects m the
solenoid valve, unscrew the 4 screws to the front cover, snap
loose the mp and bottom catches, and lay the front cover aside.
Once the front cover is off; lift the pad assembly up aM twist it
out. The pad assembly consists of 4 parts; the distributor pan,
fralne, sump, and the evaporator pad. Pull the distributor pan
apart from the fralne and the evaporator pad can be relnoved. Do
not force the evaporator pad in or out without relnoving the distributor pan as this will distort the pad.
4. Clean the humidifier's external COlnponents.
• If your humidifier is a Model HUMCCSBP humidifier, wash
the access door and outlet drain portion of the cabinet. Make
sure the drain is open.
