i need to replace my humidifier but a fan powered one was installed when a bypass one should have been. my house is small and i only need it 3 months out of the year. to switch setups i need to do quite a bit of ductwork and i’m not convinced i need to. anyone have suggestions here

I can send my wife over for three months a year, with all her cooking and showering house will be very humid.

Why would you prefer a bypass to a fan-powered? Fan powered are largely considered superior although they use a bit more energy.

what exactly are you asking for here? youre not convinced you need to; do you or dont you? we dont know what your setup looks like to tell you

the manual for a fan says it’s not suitable for horizontal furnace, which i have. it loses effectiveness by 50%. but it’s rated for 4000sq ft. my house isn’t even 2000. so i’m probably just going to go with it even if i’m wasting water and electricity bc it won’t be for long and i don’t have much of a choice.

I don’t see how a bypass would be any different with a horizontal furnace than a fan-powered. They work exactly the same besides where the airflow is coming from. If it does the job of regulating the humidity I’d just keep it like it is. You’re still better off than the majority of people who have nothing on their system at all.
