Using Your Humidifier
Step

and plugged
in.

Control
to LOW (1).

Set Humidity
Control
to a medium
position
(half way between
MIN and MAX.)
NOTE:
Humidifier

operate
with

After the unit has
been
tested,

to adjust.
If humidity
level
in home
is sufficient,
the
humidifier
will only operate
with
Humidity
Control
set on maximum.
IMPORTANT:
Water
damage

if
condensation
starts
to form on windows
or walls.
Humidity

setting
should
be lowered
until condensation
no longer
forms.
