  • Product Overview

    Dry wintry air can truly wreak havoc on your health and your surroundings. From itchy dry skin to irritated nasal passages, cracked floors, static electricity, and more - low humidity often has a way of making you feel miserable in your own home. While a portable humidifier can provide you with temporary relief, that relief probably won't extend to your entire home. Restore balanced and healthy humidity in every room of your home simultaneously with the Skuttle Model 190 Bypass Drum Humidifier.

    How It Works

    The Skuttle Model 190 Whole House Humidifier installs onto your forced air heating system to distribute warm humidified air throughout your entire home. It is designed to mimic nature's process of warm air evaporation with the help of unique rotating evaporator pad or drum. As your furnace heats your home, the drum evaporator rotates continuously, wicking up moisture into the warm air stream. Warm and fresh humidified air is then propelled throughout all the rooms of your home through your air ducts.

    The Skuttle 190 Drum Humidifier is controlled by an external humidistat that makes set it and forget it operation a reality. All you have to do is set your desired humidity level. When your home's relative humidity falls below your selected humidity, the humidistat activates the humidifier, no intervention needed. The Skuttle 190 features a 6-inch-diameter bypass opening and a durable thermoplastic cabinet that resists rust, corrosion, and warping. It delivers 17 gallons of comfortable moisture per day at a 120 degree plenum temperature.

    Coverage Area

    The Skuttle Model 190 Drum Humidifier can humidify homes up to 4,048 square feet. Keep in mind that the coverage area depends on your home's insulation level. Use the guidelines below to determine whether or not this model will work for your home.

    Additional Benefits and Features

    • Reversible Components:  Each humidifier's unique snap-lock fittings and reversible components allow for quick and versatile installation.
    • User-Friendly Design:  Interior components are easily broken down when it's time for cleaning or replacement.
    • Energy-Efficient:  Drum humidifiers are designed to use minimal water and electricity, making them very cost-effective.
    • Shutoff Damper - This feature reduces airflow in the summer, allowing your air conditioner to run more efficiently.
    • No Impurities - As water is evaporated, common impurities, bacteria, and other pollutants are left behind, creating clean humidity.
    • Installation Kit Included - This humidifier comes with all the parts you need to install except for tools. You'll need to have a licensed HVAC specialist install the humidifier for warranty validation.  


    The Skuttle 190 Drum Bypass Humidifier keeps your home's humidity balanced and healthy throughout the dry winter months.  

    What Customers Love

    • More Efficient - Drum humidifiers are generally more efficient in water usage than flow-through humidifiers. That means all water supplied to the humidifier is released into the air.
    • Lowers Heating Costs Too - Keeping your home's humidity at an optimal level can actually lower your winter heating costs, since you feel warmer in a humidified environment.

    Things To Consider

    • Requires More Maintenance - Drum-style whole house humidifiers require a little more maintenance than flow-through models.
    • Have Hard Water? - The Skuttle Automatic Flushing Timer is recommended if you have hard water. It helps simplify maintenance and lengthen the time between cleanings.
