Humidifier Location

I recently (3 months ago) had a Bryant small bypass humidifier installed. Due to lack of space in the furnace room, and the supply duct coming off the coil is round, the contractor installed on one side of the supply plenum and installed the 6 on the other side of this same plenum all in the attic. All my equipment is Bryant the heater being the 80v variable speed. My controls are the Evolution. With this set up I am not able to raise the humidity to the levels I would like, I live in Southern California so there is no worry about freezing in the attic. Is it possible to install the unit on the round duct and run the 6 into the attic to the plenum to get a little more separation between the two? The return is a plenum type, no duct work to work with. Any thoughts?

Thank you
Bob

If it does not get that cold where you are is a humidifier even necessary?

Southern California can get in the 30's but mainly the 40's during the winter; I have a son who has Asthma and low humidity really can effect him and the last reason we experience Santa Anna conditions where the humidity can be far lees then any cold place in the US.

I know more $$$ but get a Aprilaire model 700 and put it in that supply plenum. It will help your kid for sure.
