In fairness to all, we don't discuss pricing on the Wall. Thanks for your cooperation.
Good morning all - hoping someone can give me some advice...I have around 4000 sq ft of living space in my house and in the winter it can get pretty dry. We have hot water baseboard heat for the majority of the house, although we are going to convert the two bathrooms upstairs to radiant - and then next year I'm planning on converting the entire first floor to radiant.
We have central air - 2 zones (one for each floor) and my HVAC contractor suggested a York humidifier FP7000MY mounted on to my AC ductwork - which is in the attic. Located in NYC so I'm not crazy about running a water line into the attic - but the attic is fairly well insulated (as is all the duct work) and we figured we could run the water line through the attic floor which is well insulated, and come up into the humidifier. He also suggested installing a york control (humidistat) which we could set the humidity level and when there is demand, that would turn the fan on to the AC unit to circulate humidity.
We spoke about steam humidifiers as well, and he was against them - stating that they can shorten the life of the electronic air cleaners and air handlers, as well as the duct work. He is planning on running a hot water line up the attic and installing the humidifier on the duct work right before the air cleaners. Any comments, suggestions????Thank you!
