the reason why you might not see the moisture coming out cause it's a cool mist humidifier. to test your humidity in your house you might want to get a humidistat which will letyou know if your getting the humidity in your room or not. now if it's a warm mist you will see it but it's a coolmist so you won't see moisture coming out.
Hello. I am here to help. Let me begin by saying that a dehumidifier only needs to be operated if the humidity in your home is too high. If the humidity is low, the humidifier will have to work really hard to try and remove water from it.
Here is an overview of how the dehumidifier is supposed to work:
When the unit runs, the circulating fan and compressor also run. The fan continually draws room air over the evaporator coils, which are cold, and then over the condenser coils, which are warm. Because the evaporator coils are cold, the moisture in the room collects on them--just as the outside of a glass of icy liquid "sweats" on a warm, humid day. When the moisture on the coils increases, it drips off of the coils into the collection container.
The air then flows over the warm condenser coils and out into the room. This process removes water from the air and, because of the heat from the fan motor and compressor motor, the exiting air is somewhat warmer, as well as dryer.
The ability of the humidifier to maintain a given moisture content in the air is far more difficult than a heat or cooling unit to heat or cool the air.
Moisture vapor has far more energy to seek dryer air, than tempered air. So the moisture seeks and finds dryer air quickly, whether it be through stair and door ways, or through cracks and seams in walls and doors/windows, or through non vapor barrier surfaces.
The only way the unit would be able to achieve a humidity level as stated, is for the unit to be placed in a vapor-tite room that has a minimal of leakage.
You could put more humidifiers in the space, or more and larger humidifiers in the space, to try and overcome the vapor moving to other areas of the space. But unless you have a fairly vaportite space, it is unlikely the unit is under capacity, and the only way to test what capacity is needed is to take humidity measurements.
thanks for your question, you have to install the bypass humidifier on the supply side of your heating system, (hot side) and run a bypass pipe from the return side, (cold side), it does matter which side it goes on, you do not want water vapor going directly into your furnace, as this can damage it and shorten the life of it, your humidistat is installed on the return side of your duct work, this will allow proper operation of the unit as the humidistat senses the moisture in the air and brings on and shuts down the humidifier as needed. hope that helped to answer your question, please let us know what you think, again thanks, mr.grzz
You can try installing the water line to your hot water if it is installed on cold line for more humidification. You should make sure your humidistat is up line 6" @least from humidifier for proper humidification measurement.
Try the following test, ( I will resume this is a flow through humidifier)
Spray water directly oin the filter make sure it is saturated. Some water should leak from the bottom. After 10 min measure the Humidity to see if this helped. If there is a higher level of humidity the pbm is that not enough water is saturating the filter. Check the level of the filter & water feed nozzle.
Option 2 is to connect the water feed tube to a Hot water source.
