Question about Heating & Cooling

New Archer Aurora Gas Log Fire with Built in Humidifier. Humidifier has not worked since installation. Have phoned Archer, they state humidifier is working or the heater would not work. The humidifier is not working and has not worked. They will not listen to us and got extremely angry, raised their voice and told us that we know nothing about the heater, they are the professionals and do not wish to discuss this matter further. Please could you tell me if the heater can work without the humidifier and how do we correct this problem. Thank you

If the humidifier is faulty the unit would not fire up. The humidifier is a lot quieter then the bay window model. So you do not have a problem. Also the frequency of the pump will depend on the type of flue you have. Hope this helps.

I have a air handler TWE030c14 furnace with amana heat pump, and i want to install humidifier , where do i take my 120 or 24 volts to ryn my humidifier?

My first thought is, if you have to ask this question, you should not be playing with your HVAC because you will likely hurt yourself. But if you insist; What does the humidifier require 120 or 24V? If it is 24V, then you take it after the thermostat at the relay that turns on the rest of the system. If the humidifier wants 120V, take it from the switched portion of the above mentioned relay. Your heat pump is 240V, so one side of the humidifier goes to the relay, the other side goes to ground, not the other side of the 240V return. If your heat pump is connected through a GFI, this will likely trip the GFI, shutting down your heat pump.
Go download

Go to page 12. 24V should be terminal 6 and A on the relay. 120V should be between B and ground on the fan motor. Before opening anything, turn all the breakers to the heat pump, likely 3 dual gang breakers. Have a couple spare automotive ATO 5A fuzes in case you blow one. Have an shut-off valve for the water supply. Please be careful!!! What you are doing has a high potential of hurting yourself or blowing up something in your heat pump, leaving you without heat.

Problem with Germ Guardian Humidifier H2000B - Light turns red and the mist stops coming out after a few seconds of turning on the humidifier. There is plenty of water in the tank and the device is clean.

There are a few things to check that would cause the empty light to go on and the mist to stop.

Rinse the lid on the bottom of the blue tank. After you rinse it with warm water, dry it and then push the spring on the outside of the lid, it should move easily. Check the inside of the lid and make sure the rubber gasket is securely in place.

Remove the spray guide, and on the base of the humidifier to the side of the ultra sonic disk is a small white plastic pole with a washer-ring around it. This is the float, make sure it moves easily up and down the pole. Use white vinegar on a cloth or paper towel and wipe the pole down.

Reassemble the humidifier, use room temperature water in the tank, set to warm mist and let run for 30-40 minutes. Please make sure the humidifier is on a flat level surface, no carpeting or towel underneath.

I have a new furnace with a humidifier. Both work fine. The trouble is, the water running through the hose to the drain makes a LOUD dripping noise when it runs into the drain. Is there some way to stop...

Not seeing exactly what you have. I am guessing...does the humidifier have a trap on it coming out of the furnace?. Is this some type of over flow from the humidifier? If so...

I would suggest running a 3/4' pvc pipe from the hose coming off of the humidifier and at a point lower than the humidifier install a what you see under your sink. Come out of the trap and run the solid 3/4" pvc to the drain and put a 90 elbow turned down into the drain. Buy installing a trap you should not hear the loud dripping noise.

I hope this helps you...Jim

I have just completed installing a Honeywell HE220A humidifier to a Carrier Weathermaker 8000vs that was installed in 2003. My problem is that all the identified circuits in previous posts on the circuit...

The terminals on the control board are designed to provide power to the controls of the humidifier, not run directly to the solenoid. If you don't want to install the controls, you can run the 24 volt signal from the furnace heat signal (W1/W2) through the humidistat to the solonoid. This will allow 24 vac to get to the solenoid only when the furnace is running. I do this on most humidifiers that I install.

Humidifier doesn't work....

Hi Bruce, it sounds to me like you have done all of the right things, and if there is power to it that's testing it. Its not unusual to buy a factory defective unit, I see this every day in the field. If you have installed the solenoid per directions, and water tray kit, you should be up and running. I no its a pain to return it, but if you have doubled checked everything twice and nothing, take it back.Best of Luck,
PS Keep me informed please.

Mosture on windows to high or to low setting on Comfor Air 700 humidifier

Hello, If you're getting moisture on the inside of your windows while using your humidifier, you've got the setting too HIGH and you should turn it down at least 2 setting levels to begin with.

Whenever you're using a humidifier, the amount of moisture that it will put into your air will vary depending on how warm or cold the house is. Also, it will depend on whether you not you're using a wood stove to heat with too, as a wood stove will dry out the air faster than conventional heating devices (forced hot air furnance, electric baseboard, etc.).

A wole house humidifier also will vary depending on the outside air temperature changes, so you won't need as much humidification on mild days, as you will on very cold days such as when the outside temps are below freezing.

The good news is that you've discovered the simplest way, for most people, to determine whether to turn your humidifier UP or DOWN - If you're getting moisture on the inside of the home's windows, turn it down, if you're not, you can turn the humidifier up slightly until you just see moisture starting to form on any of your windows (typically this will occur in the colder rooms first), then just turn the setting down one setting level.

The great thing about having a whole house humidifier is that you can actually save on your heating costs, as the moist air makes you feel warmer and will provide you with a more comfortable home in the winter months.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
