It is more than likely already running as they work automatically in the background to keep humidity levels at certain set conditions for heating and cooling in the case of AC. You can check the settings, though I would recommend at least speaking with an HVAC tech to be sure you do it correctly. I would also add that for some systems the settings can be controlled from the thermostat. If you have an owner's manual you may be able to find out how to go through a setup process in the thermostat.
If there is no setting go and look at the humidifier itself (there is some good info here: http://www.energyserv.com/Pages/Extras/Humidifier/CorrectInstallation.aspx). Again, it is best to at least speak with an HVAC tech before messing with any settings.
You can go here to find out about how the humidifier functions here: http://www.xpedio.carrier.com/idc/groups/public/documents/marketing/809-000-030204.pdf
You can also go here to learn about a Carrier thermostat that helps you easily control temp, humidity and more: http://www.esaheatac.com/brochures/InfinityControlOwnersGuide.pdf. There is also some good info here as well as a diagram of where various elements are located and what they look like: https://www.home-tech.com/10972/air-conditioning-is-under-control/.
I hope all of this helps.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
