Dry winter months can cause your home to have a lower humidity level than the Sahara Desert. With humidity levels this low, you are sure to see and feel the effects — itchy dry skin, irritated nasal passages, aggravated allergies, asthma symptoms, static electricity, dry and cracked wood furnishings and floors, and so much more.
The Honeywell HE220A Whole House Bypass Humidifier – also known as Honeywell Model # HE220A1060 – restores moisture to your home and relieves the unwanted effects of dry air. Working with your home’s heating and cooling system, the HE220A delivers just the right amount of moisture to spaces sized up to 2,000 square feet. This powerful whole-house humidifier is an easy-to-install, simple-to-maintain, and economical solution for keeping your family comfortable and your indoor air quality healthy.
One Humidifier, Moisture for up to 2,000 Square Feet
The Honeywell HE220A Whole House Humidifier effectively fills your home with soothing moisture using an effective, simple process. This pre-assembled unit can be quickly and easily mounted on either a warm air supply or a cold air return of any forced-air furnace. For further ease of mounting, the HE220A is lightweight and includes reversible components. A humidifier installation kit – sold separately – is required for installation. The system also comes with an installation video to help ensure that your humidifier is properly set up.
Installed directly into your HVAC system, the HE220 uses by-pass flow through humidification to bypass the supply or return airflow. This creates air pressure that draws the airflow into the humidifier and through the moisturized humidifier pad (included). The humidifier’s PerfectFLO™ water distribution tray then provides fast, thorough humidifier pad saturation for optimal water evaporation and humidification. This process ensures that up to 12 gallons of moisture is evenly distributed throughout your entire home each day.
In addition to protecting your family and home from the side effects of dry air, proper humidification creates a more comfortable indoor environment. This allows you to turn down your thermostat, which helps you save on energy costs and consumption.
The HE220 bypass humidifier system also includes a humidistat to help you easily adjust the amount of moisture dispersed throughout your home.
The Honeywell HE220A Versus Portable Humidifiers
Why settle for a portable humidifier that can only supply a single room with adequate moisture? The HE220A whole house humidifier can humidify up to 2,000 square feet! The HE220 also refills with water automatically each day, so you don’t have the hassle or stress of constantly refilling your humidifier’s water tank. Clean up is also a cinch with this system. Every one to three months, simply remove any mineral deposits from the humidifier pad and PerfectFLO™ tray and flush the drain hose to keep your humidifier operating at an optimal level.
