Step 2. Location and Electrical Hook-Up ▬▬▬▬
WARNING: For your own safety, do not
use humidifier if any parts are damaged
or missing.
Selecting A Location
Place humidifier on a flat level surface, take
extra care in leveling when placing the unit
on carpet. Position the humidifier where the
most humidity is needed or where the most
air will be circulated throughout the house
such as near a cold air return.
Moist air (humidity) produced will disperse
into the whole house, but the area closest
to the unit will have the highest humidity.
If the unit is positioned close to a window,
condensation may form on the window
pane. If this occurs the unit should be
repositioned in another location.
NOTE: Due to release of cool, moist air
from humidifier, it is best to direct air away
from thermostat and hot air registers and to
position humidifier next to an inside wall.
Unit should not be placed where cold air
from outside walls or warm air from a hot air
register blows directly on it.

Electrical Hook-Up

Locate nearest 120V A.C. wall socket in
the location desired, preferably on inside
wall. With the humidifier in the desired
location, route the electrical cord safely so
no one will trip or upset the humidifier.
Plug in the electrical cord.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire
or shock hazard, humidifier should be
plugged into a 120V A.C. outlet. Do
not use extension cords.
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, this
humidifier has a polarized plug (one blade is
wider than the other). This plug will fit in a
polarized outlet only one way.
Positioning The Unit
The humidifier should be positioned with the
back (cord exit side) and left side, at least 2
inches away from the wall. Air needs to
enter through all of the louvers in the
housing assembly in order for the
humidifier to operate at peak efficiency.
At least
2" from
NOTE: Be sure humidistat (located
approximately 2 inches outside humidifier
body on power cord) is free from
obstruction and away from any hot air
If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
reverse plug. If it still does not fit, contact
a qualified electrician to install the proper
outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
