Replacing Humidfier On A Thermopride Furnace

    Hi All,

    I'd like to replace the drum style bypass humidifier on my Thermopride
    with a steam unit (Honeywell He440). Besides the fact that the water
    feed needs a good water filter (comes with an RO filter), I like the
    idea of being able to add humidity when the furnace is not pushing hot
    air. My questions are:

    1. The current drum unit is installed in the plenum. The Honeywell
    specifications call for a horizontal under duct installation or
    horizontally under a duct extension. Could an extension be built next
    to the plenum to allow for both a horizontal installation and the use
    of opening where the existing bypass unit is located? The only issue
    with just patching the existing opening and installing the unit under
    the supply duct is that there are two supply ducts coming off the
    plenum each of which supplies hot air to half the house. Many of our
    doors are kept closed to prevent cat hijinks.

    2. The furnace also functions as a heat exchanger/cold air mover for my
    air conditioning. Does this cause any compatibility issues for the
    installation.

    Thanks for any information you can provide.
