Reply To: Humidification systems


I’ve tried boiling water systems and they use a lot of electricity.  Primarily because as the humidity starts to drop, they come on to keep the water warm in case you need the humidity.  I spent a lot of money warming water.  Just switched to DriSteem which also uses a throw away cylinder.  Instead of heating the water, it uses electrodes to drive current through the water which instantly boils the water.  This is a very energy efficient system.  I have two three gallon units and they can raise the humidity 5% in less than an hour, in a 20,000 sqft building.
