With the Honeywell he220, you will use alot of water, trying to turn down the water will only reduce your amount of humidity in the home, you may be able to adjust it a little but you need to take the cover off and reduce the water flow a little at a time watching the water as it flows across the pad, you just have to make sure the humidifier pad is getting plenty of water across it, to little and you lose your humidification, hope that was helpful to ya, thanks for your question,

    There should be a valve that the 1/4in water line is hooked too, it is hooked to your cold water supply line, you will need to turn the valve a little bit at a time, until the desired amount of water is reached,

My aprilaire mod. 300 seems to release an excess amount of water through the drain tube. it waste a lot of water.is there a fix?


This is typical especially if there is not much air flow across the humidifier. Make sure the fan is running in the humidiifier and the core does not need to be replaced. Sometimes I have had to turn the water valve back a little to cause less water to go through to conserve that wasted water.

Humidifier Water antibaterial additive


Hello. Humidifier water tanks must be regularly disinfected to remove the presence of bacteria and reduce the risk of mold spores. Carefully remove the screw-on cap, fill with cool water and add a tablespoon of household bleach to the water. Replace the cap and set aside for 20 minutes. Once done, empty the water tank, rinse thoroughly with clear cool water, and wipe the outside with a soft damp cloth and you are good to go. Do this once per week. Regards, Joe

Chronotherm Three thermostat vs Buderus Logamatic Computer.


The outdoor thermostat senses the the temp of the outside air, and adjust the boiler water temp according to what it knows is best. The reason that the boiler is running longer is the old boiler used to be constantly sending 180ish degree water to the baseboard, now that water may only be 140ish degrees. The idea behind this is to reduce off cycle heat loss, as the greater the temp difference between the air temp and water temp, the quicker you loss heat. The theory in boiler run time is this, the less times it starts and stops, and the long run times will give you the best efficiency. Hope this answers you questions.

Too much water wasted


The oriface is sized for the proper water flow for the model you purchased. If you are dissatisfied you could throttle down on the saddle valve to restrict the water flow to the unit.
Good luck

Too much water


The humidifier is designed the use a specific amount of water. Slowing it down can reduce its efficiency. It can also allow mineral deposits to build up faster.
If you must slow down the water. Simply close down the saddle valve slowly untill you reach your desired amount.

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
