Honeywell HE240 Bypass Flow Through Humidifier

25 Apr Posted in Reviews
Dry winter air can cause many uncomfortable side effects such as dry skin, static shocks, irritated  breathing passages and cracks in wooden floors. Although a portable humidifier can provide temporary relief, if you want to cover more than a single room or a small area you probably need a whole-house humidifier. The Honeywell HE240 Bypass Flow Through Humidifier connects to your home’s heating and cooling system to maintain comfortable humidify levels throughout the house. Besides protecting your floors and furniture from cracking, the humidifier can alleviate and reduce many healthy problems. Features The Honeywell HE240 Bypass Flow Through Humidifier can raise the moisture level into a home as large as  3,000 square feet, releasing 16 gallons of moisture per day. Because of its flow-through design, the HE240 is free of  microorganisms which are removed by routinely rinsing and draining. Moreover, the evaporation pad filters out impurities and hard water minerals for cleaner moisture. Honeywell’s PerfectFLO system is designed for optimal water usage and energy efficiency so the humidifying process is low-cost and environmentally friendly. Improved humidity also saves energy by making it feel warmer indoors and allowing you to lower the thermostat. The Honeywell HE240 Bypass Flow Through Humidifier comes with an easy DIY installation kit and step-by-step instructions. There is also an online video available for those who are not that handy. Honeywell HE240 Bypass Flow Through Humidifier Honeywell HE240 Bypass Flow Through Humidifier picture How It Works The Honeywell HE240 Bypass Flow Through Humidifier works with your forced-furnace. To install it, you have to hook it onto the  return air duct or warm air supply and hook it to a drain line. The humidifier uses warm air from your furnace and a water-soaked evaporator pad to create moisture. Then, the warm humidified air comes is propelled through the air ducts and circulated throughout the house. The Perfect Climate Comfort Center control can be installed to replace humidity control and the thermostat. If the humidity level falls below the one you set, the machine is activated automatically. Performance The Honeywell HE240 Bypass Flow Through Humidifier comes with an included installation kit. Customers reported that it takes about 3 hours to install it, minus the time spent gathering tools. Except for the placement of the humidistat, the process is easy and the instructions clear. Although the kit has everything you need, the duct hose is made out of cheap plastic and is more like  3.5 ft instead of 4 ft . However, for $10 extra you can purchase different bypass ducting. The Honeywell HE240 Bypass Flow Through Humidifier works well, and 6 hours after you install it the humidity will increase 25%. However, the HE240 wastes a lot of water, as the pump provides water continuously while the blower is one. It wastes as much as 54 gallons of water per 24hr day, so if you are looking for a more environment friendly and economical humidifier, this model might not be the best one for you.

VERY GOOD

This Honeywell humidifier is a great product for any type of home; it seems very well built, but it is not as environmentally friendly as other humidifiers.
