Baseboard Heating Adding Humidity

The Home Wizard app calculates your ideal home care program to avoid problems with your Baseboard Heating, but sometimes trouble can still occur. Here are answers to questions about baseboard heating adding humidity.


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?

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.

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.

Hope this is helpful.
