Hot vs Cold feed to furnace humidifier

My HVAC guys are in disagreement as to whether hot or cold water should be the source for a bypass furnace humidifier. Gut feeling is that it makes little difference re: humidification, but might affect lime buildup on the pads.
Any thoughts?

I'd always tapped into cold water.. No need to waste the hot water down the drain... Guess the only time would do hot when you do heatpump, or need extra boost of humdity.
