    how many air changes per hour for infiltration. You will find the need for humidity is tied to the infiltration. WW

    Had a Unico system (I think)

    that the contractor installed the optional electric heat coil and Aprilair (the fan powered one). Call for humidification would bring on the fan, heater and humidifier. Never have heard anything bad about any of the installation. $3.5 million house, that had enough budget for heat and air.

    If you have AC ductwork...

    you could consider a steam humidifier. It should be wired so that on a call for humidity, the humidifier will produce steam and the fan will run to distribute it. An electric or hydronic reheat could be used to temper the air on cold winter days. The Honeywell model is the HE440, and it also includes controls and water treatment equipment.
