Creaky floors, static shocks, dry skin, irritated breathing passages - dry winter air can trigger a number of uncomfortable side effects. While portable tabletop humidifiers provide temporary relief, they're usually only large enough to cover a single room or small area and they may require lots of maintenance. Fortunately, Honeywell has created a better way. Stop dry air from wreaking havoc on your indoor comfort with the Honeywell HE240 Bypass Flow-Through Humidifier!
How It Works
The Honeywell HE240 Humidifier is a whole house humidifier that works with your forced-furnace to distribute comfortable humidity throughout your entire home. It installs easily onto the warm air supply or return air duct of your furnace and hooks to a drain line with simple DIY installation. To operate, warm air from your furnace blows over a water-soaked evaporator pad and wicks up moisture, creating a moisture-rich vapor. Warm humidified air is then propelled out through your air ducts to circulate throughout all the rooms of your home. The HE240 includes an easy-to-use humidity control that monitors your home's relative humidity and activates the humidifier should it fall below your set humidity level.
Clean Humidity for Up to 3,000 Square Feet
The Honeywell HE240 Whole House Bypass Humidifier is designed to humidify homes as large as 3,000 square feet, putting out roughly 16 gallons of moisture per day. Its flow-through design helps keep the unit clean of microorganisms by routinely rinsing and draining itself instead of drawing stagnant water from a reservoir. Plus, the evaporator pad helps filter out minerals from hard water and other impurities for cleaner moisture. These features contribute to less maintenance and less of a headache throughout the humidifying season.
