I was looking for input, I need to install a new whole house humidifier.

I see Honeywell has a 'new' style "Electrode" HM700A1000 - http://www.supplyhouse.com/sh/control/product/~product_id=HM700A1000


vs

Aprilaire Steam
http://www.supplyhouse.com/Aprilaire-800-Series-800-Steam-Humidifier




Thank You for any thoughts,

    The Aprilaire 800 gets good reviews in my area, SW CT. Just quoted 3 different jobs with them as an option.

    I feel like I need one this year, last year I didn't see it below 29... this year most of the winter was 21-30. I did put a portable baby one in the Rowan's room to make sure she was comfy at night.

    im a big fan of aprilaire, easy to install and the wiring is simple

    The Honeywell pro is a good one as well. What ever you go with make sure it has the ability to humidify without a call for heat

    Is there any solutions to use existing HRV ductwork?

    I chose to go with the Aprilaire.
    1) It's a Proven design, the Honeywell is 'new"
    2) Replacement canisters are about half the price

    Thank You all for your input.
