I just bought a damp chaser and thought it was the cure all but found out different on my other thread. My problem is dry winters here and not so much extra humidity in the seasons here. Because of the dry winters, it was suggested to get a humdifier. For those of you with experience, what kind suffices? Table tops for about $30? Furnace Humidifiers for about $200-

or is the $900 ones so much worthy of the other two? The $200 option for me isn't bad but the $900 option is out of the question. Bob had already told me the table tops are really more trouble than they are worth in so many words. Anyway, what kinds of humidifiers do you guys have?

Hi Ninja,...

I have the Lennox HCWB17,...
http://www.lennox.com/products/overview.asp?model=HCWB17/HCWB12

I believe it's made by Aprilaire and similar to the Aprilaire Model 600A. It is set to run whenever there's a call for humidity and uses the outdoor temperature sensor to minimize sweating windows. It's not perfect,... I still get sweating windows when it is very cold out (below 0 degrees F),... but it works well for me to keep the daily humidity swing in the piano room under 10%,... so I don't use any room humidifiers or dampp chaser.

I've posted more info on this in the past,... please search the forum for more info,...

Regards,

Robert

Yes, do indeed search the archives of the forum; this subject has been discussed in detail many times and many of the opinions and suggestions will still be very pertinent.
