  • Product Overview

    Stop uncomfortable dry air symptoms and dry air damage in your home with a single space-saving solution, the Skuttle Stainless Steel Drum Humidifier. The Skuttle Model 45 and Model 90 Drum Humidifiers are whole house bypass humidifiers that restore balanced humidity in every room of your home. Each unit installs as part of your forced air furnace to humidify the air as you heat. Bypass drum humidifiers are known for their high efficiency and they create more humidity than other types of in-duct humidifiers, which makes them a great choice if you live in a very dry climate.

    How It Works

    The Skuttle Stainless Steel Bypass Drum Humidifier works with your furnace to distribute warm humidified air throughout your home.  It is designed to mimic nature's process of warm air evaporation with the help of a rotating evaporator pad or drum.  The humidifier is controlled automatically by an external humidistat. Simply set your desired humidity and choose 1 of 3 output settings. When your home's relative humidity falls below your selected humidity, the humidistat activates the humidifier.

    During operation, the evaporator drum rotates continuously, lifting and absorbing water from a water pan and evaporating it into the warm air stream from your furnace. Air is warmed, humidified, and then recirculated into every room of your home through your air ducts. The Skuttle Model 45 has a 5-inch diameter bypass opening while the larger Model 90 features a 6-inch diameter bypass opening.

    Coverage Area

    The Skuttle Models 45 and 90 Drum Humidifiers can humidify homes up to 2,381 square feet and 4,048 square feet, respectively. 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.

    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.
