Humidifier Tapped to Hot Water?


Recommended Posts

I noted a humidifier tapped to a hot water pipe the other day. I'm pretty sure SOP is to tap into a cold water pipe. Just wondering if there is a downside to using hot water, other than the fact that hot water is more expensive than cold.

In S.E. Wisconsin we have a lot of wells and city water supplies with hard water. If was found not only does the humidifier work better with warm water but that there was the added benefit of less scaling from the softened hot water. This resulted in longer filter life.
