Question
Which product is the most efficient( for the money ) for a 3600 sq.ft. home?
What is the average cost for installation?

Answer
Wade,

Steam atomized type,most expensive most bang for the bucks ,non heated atomized type, drip water type, ( over a pad then water goes to a drain ) 24 volt solenoid opens sending water over the pad on call for humidity  last type is a rotating Drum type, needs yearly cleaning as water stays in a pan. Of course humidity is only going to be put into a residence only when fan/heat is running. Cost vary with Companies you hire,larger the Company ,higher the overhead. your state your located in. ( Low cost vs high cost states )and type of humidifier you choose.You did not mention if you were open to portable humidifiers which would not require using the blower fan.
