My hubby and I have been wondering about humidifiers lately....we need to get one so we can put some moisture in the air because we use a pellet stove and I get static shocks on every single thing I touch..anyway, can anyone tell me if the floor model humidifiers are going obsolete because we can only find one art one store where we live..we can buy those table top humidifiers..but do they do the same job as the big floor model ones....any help would be greatly appreciated...

I've like thed table top humidifiers I've used in the past.  Growing up I remember my Mom putting pans of water around the house.  Pennys idea is good too.

We have April Air with our furnace. I love it because it can easily be adjusted when the weather changes.

It all depends on what type of ceilings you have. If you have those acoustical ceilings ( popcorn some call them) too much moisture can damage them. I have also heard that placing a large pan of water near the stove helps but you have pets so that might not work. I would think the bigger the unit the better it works but at the same time they cost more so you cannot have a bunch of them in one house unless you want to spend a fortune. So a few smaller units placed in several rooms in my opinion would be of some help. I am not sure what Penny has she seems very happy with that so maybe you can get more information on that particular set up and see if you can get it. Good luck and I do hope you will not be so dry. I hate those static shocks. Good luck with it all :hug:

I spelled it wrong. Oops! Here is a link - www.aprilaire.com/whole-house-…

It isn't portable. It becomes part of your furnace.

Here is something almost free you could try - I used to do this. Put a pot of water on the stove and let it simmer without a lid. Or a tea kettle will work too. The steam adds moisture to the air.
