Inside a Skuttle Steam Humidifier, a water temperature sensing device operates the furnace fan independently from your home’s heating system. Because it has its own heat source, a steam unit will effectively humidify your home regardless of the air temperature.
Skuttle Duct-Mounted Steam Humidifiers are the best option when stabilized humidity is desired or essential. They work well on all heating systems with air movers, and are particularly effective on furnaces that don’t operate long enough or generate enough heat for other humidifiers to work efficiently.
Skuttle Steam Humidifiers are efficient because they use comparatively little water. However, since they operate independently from your heating system, they use a significant amount of electricity. Steam Humidifiers do not produce harmful contaminants, nor do they release them into the air.
