Not a humidifier. It's a humidiSTAT that goes next to my thermostat and
needs a wire running from the thermostat back to the air handler. It can
pick up 24V from the thermostat, but from there it runs to the "ODD"
terminal on the circuit board in the airhandler. I wanted to do it nicely
in case anyone ever followed me and said "What kinda wiring is this?"
The humidistat is 2 wire. The thermostat is 4 wire (unless it's a heat
pump). The humidifiers I've run use 2 wire with a dedicated transformer.
Does your system have a combo humidistat/thermostat?
How does this compare to the prices you've been quoted locally?
$59 incl shipping for 250 feet - maybe you could use the 30' you need, and
re-sell the remaining 220.

Nobody ever left footprints in the sands of time by sitting on his butt.
And who wants to leave buttprints in the sands of time?
Google is your friend... found this in about 30 seconds:
About $25 incl shipping for 30'. There are probably many other online
retailers as well.
Go to an agricultural supply house. They sell 5 or 8 or 12 conductor wire
for irrigation systems. They are for direct underground burial and 18 gauge

I had googled many companies. Most all I found wanted to sell the 250'
spool. Only one was willing to sell 30' and they wanted $10 extra for
orders under $50.
So THANKS TO DOUG MILLER for that find. I have ordered my wire.
