They don't affect your ductwork appreciably if installed properly. Make sure that it is wired into the relay, not on a sail switch though, ours was and it was a PITA, and sometimes didn't work if the switch got hung up.

Do NOT get a steam humidifier, those DO damage ductwork.

Oh, and you just want a bypass or wheel model, not a rotating drum. And change the filter each season, they get clogged with lime if you have hard water.
In doing research some the rotating drums rated highest, why avoid those?
