Parched winter air can truly make the colder months unbearable if you don't have the right solution. Alleviate your dry skin, soothe irritated nasal passages, and stop costly humidity damage to your home with the Honeywell HE280 Whole House Bypass Humidifier! This furnace humidifier works with any forced air furnace to provide comfortable humidified air in every room of your home. Using efficient PerfectFLO water distribution technology, the HE280 distributes roughly 17 gallons of moisture per day to cover homes up to 4,000 square feet.
Works With Your Furnace
The Honeywell HE280 Humidifier 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 vapor. Warm humidified air is then propelled out through your air ducts to circulate throughout all the rooms of your home. The HE280 includes an easy-to-use humidity control that monitors your home's relative humidity and activates the humidifier when it falls below your set humidity level.
Flow-Through Design for Easy Maintenance
The Honeywell HE280 Whole House Bypass Humidifier features a flow-through design that 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 throughout the humidifying season.
