What would be the best Aprilaire wholehouse humidifier installed in our 3 story condo.

Consumer question:

We are seeking to have a wholehouse humidifier installed in our 3 story condo. The issue is that the utility closet space is exremely limited and the only place that a humidifier would fit is the intake duct. Is this possible or is it only recommended to install on the outflow air duct? This is for my Aprilaire model 700 humidifier.


Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for inquiring about the Aprilaire 700 humidifier installation.
The model 700 is most efficient when installed on the supply plenum of the furnace. It can be mounted on the return duct and with the use of 120 degree water supplied to the humidifier the humidity is easily dissipated in the cooler return air.
I have attached a copy of the installation manual to illustrate mounting locations.
