Humidifer water supply

I just brought a new house and when I went to turn on the whole house humidifier I noticed that the water supply came from the hot water line rather than the cold water line.

Any idea why they would have done that? Or was it just a mistake?

Hot water will evaporate more rapidly and provide greater evaporative capacity, I would suspect that this is why it was tapped on the hot water supply.

Blake --thanks, at least there is some logic behind it.
