My house has a downstairs gas furnace and A/C combination unit and an upstairs heat pump. There is no basement so space is minimal for the downstairs unit, but the upstairs unit is located in an unfinished storage room with good access. The floor space is roughly 1600 S/F downstairs and 1000 S/F upstairs.
I want to have a whole house humidifier installed, but before I call a contracor I want to get some perspective on how one unit can handle the
whole house. The installation by the contractor and service (cleaning,
etc) by me will be much easier on the upstairs unit so I favor this location for the humidifier.
Will the moisture from the upstairs unit migrate downstairs adequately to make the downstairs living area bedroom correctly humidified?
Thanks for any insight you can provide.
