With winter approaching contractors will be changing focus from dehumidification to humidification. Honeywell’s TrueSteam humidifiers operate independently of the HVAC equipment and provides whole house humidification. The TrueSteam comes in 3 different sizes with different humidification control for a total of 8 different part numbers to choose from. These 8 distinct part numbers can each take a remote mounting kit.
The 50024917-001 is a 10’ remote mounting kit. The 50024917-002 is a 20’ remote mounting kit. The six gallon TrueSteam can only have the 10’ remote mounting kit, while the 9 and 12 gallon TrueSteams can have either the 10’ or 20’ remote mounting kit. These kits are used for mounting the TrueSteams to a location other than on the supply duct. Always ensure an uphill flow when installing the remote hose. If the hose cannot be installed with an upward pitch of 2 2in. /ft., a drip tee must be installed. The remote hose must be supported to prevent sagging or low spots. For the drain, allow a continuous down slope to the drain. Insulating the remote hose in unconditioned spaces will sustain efficiency better than not insulating the hose.
