WHOLE HOME STEAM HUMIDIFIER | $3345
The GeneralAire steam humidifier is a whole-home humidifier that passes electric current between electrodes inside the unit’s cylinder, heating the water within to create steam. The steam is then dispersed throughout your home for healthier, more comfortable air.
Steam humidification is often more effective for larger homes and can use less water than other types of humidification. Steam humidification is often known as “clean” humidification, as water is heated to a boiling point to provide humidity.

You can always contact our team with questions about humidifiers. Here are some questions our customers often ask!
What is a whole-home humidifier?
A whole-home humidifier is a device you can add to your HVAC system to improve humidity levels and air quality throughout your entire home. These differ from stand-alone systems, which can only improve humidity in a relatively small area.
Why is it important to have a humidifier in your HVAC system?
Having a humidifier in your HVAC system can help to improve your entire home’s indoor air quality, reduce dry skin and allergies, and help prevent wood furniture and hardwood floors from drying out over time.
What are the different kinds of whole-home humidifiers?
Action Furnace sells two types of whole-home humidifiers:
- Flow-through humidifiers: these humidifiers send a steady stream of water through an evaporator pad, which distributes moisture into your HVAC system’s air so it can be spread throughout your home.
- Steam humidifiers: these humidifiers use an electric current to heat water until it evaporates into the air flowing through your ductwork and return vents.
To learn more about the type of humidifier best suited for your home, contact Action Furnace and speak with a member of our team who can make a recommendation based on your specific needs.
How do I know if I need a humidifier in my HVAC system?
You may need a humidifier in your HVAC system if you notice that the air in your home or building is dry, causing symptoms such as dry skin, nosebleeds, or static electricity.
How long will my whole-home humidifier last?
Most whole-home humidifiers last anywhere from 12-15 years with proper care. However, the lifespan of your humidifier can vary depending on your usage and maintenance habits.
How often should I clean my humidifier?
To keep your humidifier working efficiently for as long as possible, we recommend cleaning it once every couple of weeks during any season when you’re using it.
To clean a flow-through humidifier, follow these steps:
- Take the base off and remove the water inside
- Pour in a cup of white vinegar or cleaning solution, then let it soak for an hour
- Scrub the inside with a soft-bristled brush
To disinfect your humidifier after cleaning it, use a solution of cold water and bleach, then rinse the unit out with water and let it dry fully before turning it on again. This process will prevent bacteria or mold growth from compromising your humidifier’s effectiveness.
Can I install a humidifier myself?
We do not recommend attempting to install a whole-home humidifier by yourself, as this can compromise your ductwork and reduce your HVAC’s efficiency. Instead, contact Action Furnace to have a professional HVAC technician install your whole-home humidifier properly.
How much does a humidifier cost?
The cost of a whole-home humidifier will vary depending on the type of humidifier, the size of your home or building, and the features it has. On average, a whole-home humidifier can cost between $500 and $2000.
