Consumer question:
Is it possible to install Humidifier Aprilaire Model 600 in the attic?
I live in Massachussets and sometimes the temperatures in the winter could be low.


Aprilaires' response:

The installation of a humidifier in an attic is not recommended if the space is unconditioned. We strongly discourage installing our products in areas that have the potential for freezing temperature to occur. If the attic is an unconditioned space and freezing temperature may occur we would recommend not installing the humidifier in that area. We would be happy to further assist you with any questions relating to the installation of the Aprilaire model 600 humidifier. If there are any further questions please contact us at your earliest convenience.

Our house is in NJ and the attic, in which the furnace is installed, is unconditioned. Is the correct humidifier the 800 which would be installed in the laundry room and the steam line run up into the attic and there connected to the supply duct?
