The reason you can not run your humidifier while the blower is off, is because all the humidity would condense almost immediately and rot out your duct work. If you find that the humidity provided during the cycle of your furnace is inadequate, I would suggest purchasing a table top unit, and keep it in the room where you spend the most time. So, the answer to your question is no, you can not run a humidifier while your blower motor is off. Hope this helps.

First connect one wire to transformer then connect to humidiistat then to either sail switch or current sensing relay and back to other terminal on transformer. if you use a sail switch then it will mount in the return air duct if you use a current sensing relay it will cradle the blower motors common wire. I will post a pic of both current sensing relay
