needed, or one which would likely result in
moist air being circulated throughout the
house such as near a cold air return.
Placing the unit level is very important if
the humidifier is located on carpeting.
Moist air (humidity) produced will disperse
into the whole house, but area closest to
unit will have the highest humidity. If the
unit is positioned close to a window, condensation may form on the window pane.
If this is not appropriate the unitshould be
repositioned in another location.

NOTE: Due to release of cool, moist air
from humidifier, it is best to direct air away
