HE360 Install on Carrier Confort 80

I just purchased the HE360a humidifier that comes with an install kit. I have read in other posts that I will not need the pressure switch (which was included) if I connect power straight to the furnace board. I have a Carrier Comfort 80 model #58DLA090-14. I will just connect the humidistat to the humidifier through the black and yellow wires. The furnace is close to hot or cold water through PVC pipe. From there I will need a little guidance. Pictures would be great!! I am sure I can handle the install, but I can't afford down time with the temp around 30.

Thanks,
Scott

I finished most of the install and seems to work great. I need help with the wiring. I currently have the wires from humidistat to humidifier and no pressure switch installed, so the he360 just constantly runs when plugged into wall outlet. I would like to have the humidifier only kick on when the heater is running, is this possible?? Thanks

There's 24v HUM connection on the board.. so, there's two things we can do..

1-Use a relay between the 24 Hum, and the humidifier itself.

or

2-Put an outlet on the side of the furnace, and wire it to the EAC hook up, and then plug the humidifier into the outlet that power up when the blower starts.

I will have to wire an outlet close to furnace anyway, so I will install outlet on furnace and connect to EAC. Any gotchas I should know about doing option 2?? This will also run when AC is going??

Thanks for all the help!

In the summer, yes if the humidity is below set point it will come on... So make sure you turn the dial to off in the summer.
