Curb the uncomfortable and damaging effects of dry winter air using a single, easy-to-install solution, the Honeywell HE360 Whole House Powered Flow-Through Humidifier. This whole house humidifier – also known as the Honeywell HE360A Humidifier and Honeywell Model # HE360A1075/U – works in unison with your home's HVAC system to disperse soothing moisture throughout your home as you heat. The unit is designed to service homes sized up to 4,500 square feet and is best for use with variable speed and multi-stage systems. The HE360 furnace humidifier also includes a duct- and wall-mountable humidistat for easy control over the amount of humidity dispersed.
Why Use a Humidifier?
Humidifying during the colder months helps prevent health symptoms caused by overly dry air, including dry sinuses, scratchy throat, bloody nose, cracked lips, and dry skin. It also helps to protect your home's interior foundation and furnishings, such as walls, wallpaper, wood floors, and wood furniture. In addition, proper humidification can actually make your home feel warmer, which allows you to turn down your thermostat and save money on energy costs and consumption.
How It Works
The Honeywell HE360 Whole House Humidifier blankets your home with soothing, healthful moisture – with no bypass ducting required. Simply mount the system directly onto the warm air supply or air handler of your forced-air furnace using the included connecting components, installation kit, and installation video for guidance. Note that you'll need access to a nearby floor drain to provide drainage for air conditioner condensation as well as the humidifier. If you do not have access to a floor drain, consider the Honeywell HE120 Whole House Drum Humidifier, which requires no drain, as an alternative solution.
During humidification, the HE360 system draws heated air through a moistened humidifier pad (included), where it collects invisible moisture. This Honeywell whole house humidifier features a PerfectFLO™ water distribution tray that maintains fast and thorough humidifier pad saturation for even moisture distribution. This process ensures that up to 18 gallons of moisture is distributed throughout your home each day.
Easy Humidity Control and Maintenance
The HE360 furnace humidifier includes a standard, duct- and wall-mountable humidistat to help you easily adjust the amount of moisture dispersed throughout your home. 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. The HE360 humidifier's unique flow-through design means that it 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 microorganism buildup, depending on your water quality.
