Did you know….Whole-house evaporative, or flow-through, humidifiers are designed to work in conjunction with your home’s heating system to provide controlled humidification throughout your entire home. These humidifiers typically operate whenever your thermostat is calling for heat and your humidifier control indicates a need for humidification. However, what if you live in a mild climate where there is not much call for heat, but your air is still dry? You need a way for the humidifier to turn on your HVAC blower so you can be protected from all the ailments of dry air.
