Stop adverse health effects and interior damage caused by dry, wintry air using a single, easy-to-install product – the Honeywell HE120 Whole House Bypass Drum Humidifier. This drum-style humidifier – alternatively known as the Honeywell HE120A Humidifier and Honeywell Model # HE120A1010/U – provides basic humidification for mid-sized to large homes measuring up to 4,000 square feet. Requiring no nearby drain, this system installs directly onto your furnace to disperse 17 gallons of moisture while you heat. The included installation kit with instructional video makes installation a simple, do-it-yourself project.
Running your furnace during the colder months provides the warmth and comfort you need to get through the winter. However, your furnace is also one of the main culprits responsible for drying out your indoor air. Harsh, dry air often causes uncomfortable side effects such as dry sinuses, cracked lips, dry skin, and a scratchy throat. In addition, overly dry air can damage wood floors and wood furniture, cause wallpaper and paint to peel, and allow static electricity to run rampant. The solution to this problem is to humidify your indoor environment.
Using a whole house humidifier, like the HE120, can solve your health and interior issues. It can also help you feel warmer and more comfortable indoors, without requiring you to raise your thermostat and consume more energy dollars.
How It Works
The Honeywell HE120 Whole House Bypass Drum Humidifier mounts directly onto your furnace and hooks to your water supply line to humidify your air as it is heated. During humidification, water supplied from your drain line flows evenly over an absorbent humidifier pad (included). Warm, dry air from your furnace then passes over the humidifier pad, picking up moisture during movement before it is circulated throughout your home.
This Honeywell whole house humidifier is controlled by a standard humidistat (included) that installs easily on your return air duct or a wall in your living space. To control the humidity, use the combination relative humidity/outdoor temperature setting scale on the humidistat and refer to the recommendation table listed in the owner's manual.
Simple Installation and Maintenance
The Honeywell HE120 Drum Humidifier installs easily with the help of the included installation kit and step-by-step instruction video. A professional installer is not required. The unit features snap-lock fittings and reversible components that allow for fast installation and easy access for routine maintenance. The HE120's unique flow-through design means that the system stays cleaner longer and requires less frequent maintenance. Honeywell recommends that you clean the system every 1 to 3 months to prevent mold, mineral, and dust buildup, depending on your water quality.
Additional Features and Specifications
In addition, the HE120 humidifier features:
Durable Cabinet – This Honeywell whole house humidifier features a durable thermoplastic cabinet that resists rust, corrosion, and warping.
Flexible Installation – The system is designed to be installed on your HVAC system's warm air supply. However, if this is not possible, the system can be installed on the return duct.
Replacement Pad Type: Honeywell recommends that you change the humidifier pad annually. This unit uses a Honeywell HC12A Replacement Humidifier Pad (Part # HC12A, also known as HC12A1015).
