SPLASH
INSIDE
HUMIDIFIER:
This humidifier depends on the difference of air pressure between
the supply air plenum
and the return air plenum to propel air
through the humidifier. Some furnaces have higher pressures than
others. This could result in air travelling at high speed through
the humidifier. This can cause droplets of water to be picked up
and splashed
against the inside of the humidifier case. Eventu-
ally a coating of lime will build up. It could in extreme cases, cause
leaking of water from the humidifier. If possible, operate the fur-
nace blower at a lower speed.
TO REDUCE
SPLASH:
Partially
close
the damper
located
in the collar
on the
return air plenum. Some experimenting
may be necessary
to
find the proper setting.
AIR CONDITIONING
- IMPORTANT:
If your furnace has air conditioning (cooling), close the damper
completely
during summer months and turn the humidistat to
the Minimum
Humidity setting. BE SURE TO OPEN DAMPER
DURING HEATING SEASON.
CAUTION:
Do not use tablets in an attempt to control lime de-
posits in this humidifieH
Use of tablets may cause
humidifier
to splash causing
damage
to humidifier
or furnace.

RATES WATER IN LARGE QUANTITIES.

essary to keep the parts free of lime deposits. Deposit build-
up will reduce humidifier
output.
