General Aire Humidifiers - Reviews
General Aire humidifier products provide whole house humidification for structures ranging from 2,000 square feet up to 10,000 square feet in area. Humidifiers by General Aire come in three main lines. General Aire Elite Steam Humidifiers come in eight model types and are recommended for larger homes—those with a square footage of 3,000 square feet to 10,000 square feet in area.
These General Aire humidifiers use what the company describes as “electrode steam technology”, and claim 90% efficiency in transforming water into steam humidity in a home of this size. General Aire’s second humidifier line, the Legacy Series, comes in four models. All of the humidifiers in this line use evaporative technology to create house-wide moisture. The pros of these units are that fans distribute water vapor throughout the dwelling, and humidity levels can be adjusted by means of the General Aire MHX3 Manual Control Humidistat, which is incorporated into all of the models in this line.
The Lecacy Series humidifiers are designed for use in dwellings ranging from 2,800 to 3,000 square feet in area. General Aire’s Whole House Elite Series humidifiers come in six model types. There are four “A” models—which come equipped with the GFX3 Automatic Humidistat, and two “M” models, which include the MHX3 Manual Control Humidistat.
This line is appropriate for home with a square footage of 2,000 to 3,000 feet, and all humidifiers in this series use evaporative humidifier technology.
The cons of General Aire humidifiers are that they can only be purchased and installed through licensed contractors. See the General Aire website for a list of qualified contractors.
