Johnson Controls Expands Line of Residential Steam Humidifiers

Originally published: 07.31.12 by HVACR Business Staff

Johnson Controls has expanded its Coleman brand of residential steam humidifiers. The Echelon Model 8000 is a whole-home humidifier that uses electricity to boil the water and features a precise control algorithm that manages the water level to ensure 11.5 amps of electricity is used during operation. 

The unit uses the same level of electricity, even if it is installed with 240v, 208v or 120v, automatically producing more steam based on the voltage that is selected and as much as 23.3 gallons of humidity per day to effectively humidify a 5,000-square-foot home. 

The Model 8000 features:

  • Compact size: 10 1/8 inches wide x 7 1/8 inches deep x 20 7/8 inches high
  • Technology that makes the humidifier ideal for areas that could not be serviced by an evaporative humidifier, including attics, small equipment closets, crawl spaces and very large spaces with high capacity needs
  • Easy mounting directly on the duct or about 20 feet away from where steam enters the duct
  • Replaceable canister for easy maintenance; no cleaning or scrubbing required
