Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for contacting Aprilaire.

Yes, it is possible to create humidity on just a fan call. In order to accomplish this, you will need to have the controller wired to know when the fan is on, and have hot water run to the humidifier.

If the humidistat controller is currently wired to obey a call for heat, then having the fan on will not change anything for humidity.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.
