QUESTION FROM Michele

The air in our house stays very dry in the winter. I have hot water baseboard heat. Are there any attachments I can add to my baseboard to get some humidity into the air?

ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD

Dear Michele:

Yes, there are a variety of options for adding humidity to your home during the winter when you have a hot water baseboard heating system in your house.

They include fairly inexpensive devices that you fill with water and place over sections of your baseboard radiator, such as this model:

And more expensive options that get hooked up to a water supply and can serve much large areas:

in addition to cost, the differences are: 1) having to check and fill the water by hand, versus automatically feeding water as needed; and 2) the capacity for serving larger rooms and areas.

The above are not meant to be recommendations, but rather, just examples of the range of options.

Hope this is helpful.
