  • Product Overview

    Itchy skin, cracked lips, dry breathing passages—these uncomfortable symptoms and more are often caused by low indoor humidity, a common occurrence in the chilly fall and winter months. While portable tabletop humidifiers may provide temporary relief, they're usually only enough to cover small areas and not your entire home. Working with your furnace, the Skuttle 2000 Flow-Through Humidifier solves this problem, providing comfortable and soothing moisture in every room of your home. You'll get relief that lasts all winter.

    Comfortable Humidity in Every Room

    The Skuttle 2000 Bypass Flow-Through Humidifier installs onto your forced-air furnace and uses a warm air evaporative process to humidify your entire home. This whole house humidifier is controlled by an external humidistat that aims to keep your home's humidity at a comfortable 30 to 45 percent. This level is ideal for dry air relief during the colder months as well as helping to protect your home's infrastructure from damage due to low humidity.

    Coverage Area

    The Skuttle 2000 features a flexible coverage area depending on your home's insulation level.

    Maximum Home Size Tight House Average House Loose House
    Total Square Feet 3,333 sq. ft. 2,121 sq. ft. 1,522 sq. ft.
    Total Cubic Feet 26,667 cu. ft. 16,970 cu. ft. 12,174 cu. feet
    • Tight House - Tight houses have insulated walls and ceilings, vapor barriers, weather stripping on doors and windows, snug doors, snug windows, and a fireplace damper. One-half air change per hour. 
    • Average House - Average houses have insulated walls and ceilings, vapor barriers, loose doors, loose windows, and a fireplace damper. One air change per hour.
    • Loose House - Loose houses have no insulation, storm doors, storm windows, weather stripping, or vapor barriers. Two air changes per hour.

    How It Works

    The Skuttle 2000 Humidifier is designed to mimic nature's process of warm air evaporation. In nature, warm air passes over a thin layer of water spread over a large area. This causes the water to evaporate and raise the level of humidity. The Skuttle 2000 mimics this process using a porous evaporator pad. Warm air from your furnace passes over the evaporator pad, which dispenses water evenly in front of the warm air stream. As the water evaporates, your heating system circulates the humidified air throughout your home. This free-flowing design prevents standing water, which helps eliminate mineral build-up from hard water and ensures easy, worry-free operation.

    Humidistat-Controlled

    The Skuttle 2000 Flow-Through Humidifier includes an external humidistat that automatically switches the humidifier on and off to maintain a healthy humidity level. The humidistat features a manual knob you can use to set your desired humidity level. Mount the humidistat on the cold air return of your furnace or an interior wall of your home. When your home's air is drier than the set humidity level, the humidistat activates the humidifier.

    Additional Features

    • Output Per Day - The Skuttle 2000 outputs 14 gallons of comfortable moisture per day.
    • Compact and Low Profile - The 2000's compact width and low-profile design is ideal for narrower ductwork. This unit can fit plenums as narrow as 10 inches and be modified to fit 8-inch plenums.
    • Reversible Side Panels - Reversible side panels make left-side or right-side bypass installation possible.
    • Low Energy - Electrical consumption is about the same as a 25-watt light bulb.
    • Rust-Proof Cabinet - The humidifier features a sturdy thermoplastic cabinet that resists rust, corrosion, and warping.
    • Easy Maintenance - Flow-through humidifiers are the easiest of all whole house humidifiers to maintain. They usually need 1 thorough cleaning per year, unless your water is very hard.
    • 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.

    Summary

    The Skuttle 2000 Flow-Through Humidifier works with your furnace to comfortably humidify your entire home during the dry winter months.
