Question about Honeywell HE220A1019 Whole House Humidifier Humidifier

1 Answer

No increase in humidity after installing whole house humidifier

I recently installed a Honeywell HE360A1027, before I installed it the house was at 16% humidity and 3 days later still 16% I placed the humidy sensor over a register and no increase, I know the meter works by breathing on it. I installed it acording to instructions fan is turning, water is flowing through the filter. I even pulled the cover off to make sure the filter is geting wet and watched the fan spin. I would assume that if I know the humidifier is runnning and I put my humidity sensor right on the register there should be some increase. Not sure what could be wrong.

    No increase in humidity for me either. Tested that the humidstat is
    calling for humidity, water flow is good, installed on the hot air vent
    side common area (before my zone dampers). We have good well water,
    but it is cold, could this be part of the problem?



    Any help would be great...

Have you checked the damper ? is the motor running the right direction ? have you increased the water supply to it ? you need to be sure that it is coming on only when you have a call for heat, normally your humidistat should be installed near the return, or on the return duct, for proper sensing, you could try holding a pan of steaming water, placing the stat above it, not to close, to see if the stat shuts off the hum, a little trick, that way you will know if the stat works ok, hope these helped, thanks for the question, mr.grzz

Water runs continuosly on my Honeywell Envirocaire Elite system, no matter what setting I have the automatic humidity control set at, should I try replacing the Kip valve #3703?


Try to disconnect the main power to the unit and if the water valve is still open and water is running, you have a bad valve (the valve stuck open). Tap on the valve body it may help on sticking it, if not replace it.

Do I have to put water in my honeywell whole home humidifier?


Your humidifier has a water line ran to it from the installation look for a little 1/4" tube it should be on the bottom of your humidifier trace it back to its tie in point and see if it is turned on it will look like a little T handle turn it counter clockwise till it stops and water will be on.controlltech_10.jpg

Water not flowing into HE360A


If you used the plastic tubing to the humidifier(I recomend copper) there should have been a little brass tube with a flare on it. This goes in the plastic tubing to grip the the sleeve better. See if this helps

This may not be a solution, but a couple things you might want to look at. First, the humidifier may not be big enough for your house - just because a contractor installed it doesn't mean he sized it right. Second, humidity may only be 30% locally by the humidistat, but higher in other parts of the house - it depends where the humidistat is located. Finally, look at your hot water line - I'm surprised he ran it off hot water and not cold - seems like a waste of energy to me, but the feed line may be clogged by sediment from the water heater
