Dry air can be uncomfortable to breathe and dry out wooden furniture excessively. It also causes an increase in static levels which is especially bad if you like tinkering with electronic devices. Dry air can also cost you more in heating bills because it feels colder than humid air at the same temperature. When you add humidity to your home you can actually feel warmer at 68 degrees than you do at 75 degrees, saving as much as 15% in heating costs.
The ThermoMist is a low maintenance automatic whole-house humidifier suitable for traditional oil or gas fired forced air heating systems. It automatically detects when the heater is blowing and sprays a fine mist into the airflow, and it stops automatically when the airflow stops.
The ThermoMist Automatic Humidifier is easy to install: Simply mount the control box and nozzle to your ductwork and attach it to the water supply with the included saddle valve. Plug the AC adapter into a 110V outlet.
Replacement nozzles and filters are sold separately. Optional humidistat control can be added to shut off the humidifier when desired humidity is reached. You can also plug it into an INSTEON ApplianceLinc (sold separately) for integration into your home automation system.
This product is not recommended in areas where the water has a high mineral content. (Use FreshMist or Turbo Mist systems instead.) Read more

|Review: Works well. I would make 2 suggestions. Do not mount the misting head above your furnace. It will drip a bit so to avoid|

|Review: I purchased this unit 3 years ago and it has been the best investment for my new townhouse. I followed the maintenance instruction to the T and never have I had a problem. I even went and installed a water filter to be on the safe side. My house is always comfortable.|
