Jeff, here is a piece from an article on Warmair.com

Heat pump and electric furnace air is not warm enough to evaporate water as easily as a fuel burning furnace, so a steam humidifier is needed. Fabricated of metal, a float valve keeps the required amount of water in the reservoir. Mounted in the return or supply ducts or plenums, line voltage current is passed through a heating element immersed in the reservoir to make steam. The control wiring will include a switch to turn the blower on during operation for increased humidification even when the thermostat is not calling for heat.

Here is the URL to the whole article in case you want to see.  www.warmair.com/html/bypass_humidifier.htm

Hope this helps
