Forced hot air may become very dry and you may wish to add some moisture to it. This is normally done with a humidifier. When placing this humidifier you should not place it directly over the furnace heat exchange.
If the humidifier is not kept clean, or if water leaks it can flow into the furnace causing a hole and the furnace will need to be replaced.
It is preferred to put the humidifier on duct work away from the furnace. it is also preferred that you use the evaporation type of humidifier as opposed to the spray type, because the evaporator type is more easily maintained.
Remember, that all humidifiers need routine maintenance and checking, and that these are some of the most neglected appliances in your house.
