In reply to Hot Water Heat & Humidity by Mark Fields on January 8th, 2003 10:28 PM [Go to top of thread]

Although you haven't said so specifically, you indicated that you are used to living in housing that has many air leaks or ductowrk that leaks air that is replaced by outdoor air. A new house that is sealed with tyvek and is heated with hot water does not require a humidifier; but usually needs a fresh air exchanger to bring in dry air to help get rid of the humidity that is produced by cooking and cleaning activity. It is rarely mentioned that leaky ductwork and rattly windows and doors are the cause of low humidity in homes. Thus a noisy cabinet hunidifier is unnecessary and could be replaced by a quiet one on a cabinet blower if ever needed.
