The tank is in a large family room with a cathedral ceiling and no
doors beween in and the living room and kitchen. I suspect it
would be a major expense to insatll a humidifier for a space this
large. I figure the tanks do the humidifying for me! Since I do
large frequent water changes anyway, it's not a big enough problem
for me to worry about. But thanks for the suggestion!
