What’s Included in the TrueSTEAM Box?
Tools and Parts Needed Tools needed to install TrueSTEAM™ - Wire cutter/stripper - Torx driver T-20 and T-30 - Standard screwdriver - 1-3/4-in. diameter hole saw - 1/8-in. drill bit - 18-gauge wire (up to 5 conductor) Other Optional Parts: - Condensate pump rating of 212°F (100°C) if used. - Drip pan with water sensor shut-off required underneath TrueSTEAM if installed in or above finished space.
Tips and Precautions Be sure to read and understand the Installation Guide and complete list of precautions before starting work! - Adhere to voltage, heavy equipment and hot water warnings in the manual - Comply to all install, plumbing, wiring guidelines in the manual, as well as those listed in your local guidelines - Wear safety glasses Do not install in locations which are: - Outside operating temperature range: 34°F to 104°F - In confined space (less than 1 foot of clearance) - Exposed to outside weather DEDICATED TRUESTEAM HOTLINE
Step 1: Choosing a Location Choose a location that has access to a: Vertical surface with adequate clearances. Cold water supply line must be used. Drain with a high-temperature water rating. Electrical circuit rated to your humidifier. HM506 7 Amps HM Amps HM Amps Required Minimum Circuit Capacity Model
Step 2: Mounting on the Supply Duct Position template on supply duct, and ensure proper clearances from A-coil.
Step 3: Mount Bracket Secure bracket to duct using provided self-drilling sheet metal screws.
Step 4: Insert Duct Nozzle Install duct nozzle by ensuring o-ring gasket is properly seated in the groove, and slide foam gasket down over nozzle. Insert nozzle and twist clockwise to ensure tight seal of nozzle to TrueSTEAM.
Step 5: Mounting TrueSTEAM Push down to secure humidifier to bracket arms. Ensure gasket forms tight seal in duct hole. Allow 4 inches clearance from nozzle outlet to any duct wall and allow 24 inches of downstream open duct air space to prevent duct condensation.
Step 6: Plumbing Use only cold water. Do not use hot water supply. a. Water Filter. Insert 1/4-inch copper or plastic water line. Apply modest pull to ensure a tight fit. b. Back-flow preventer valve. Insert 1/4-in. copper or plastic water line. Apply modest pull to ensure a tight fit. c. Connect 1/2-in. drain tube. Secure drain tube to barbed fitting with hose clamp. d. Shut off the water supply. Secure 1/4-in. copper or plastic water feed tube.
Step 6: Plumbing
After Installation Educate the homeowner on what to expect next. It may take up to a week of continuous operation to achieve the humidity control set point. A slight plastic smell may be detectable the first week of operation. This is normal and will dissipate after running a short time. There may be a slight increase in the homeowner’s energy bill even when TrueSTEAM™ is sized and operating correctly. Set the expectation that comfort costs money to avoid callbacks.
