How old is your house? Your house may have enough natural ventilation (leaks) to remove the humidity you generate. From the EPA sites I posted earlier, it's wise to make sure you don't over humidify your house. You might consider buying a nice humidistat to know where you stand.

The house is 4 years old. The humidifier on the furnace has a humidistat. I've been wanting to stop by Home Despot to pick one up so I can check to see if the humidifier is doing its job.
