We have an Aprilaire whole house humidifier that is functioning, but it does not have the ability to humidify our home. We have 3000 sq ft. When the heat comes on, the temperature must be high enough then...


Hi,
You can turn the blower on so that the humidifier will run more... there should be a manual on detting on your t-stat that will run the blower constantly. The humdifier should be wired to go on withthe blower.
The other option would be to install a stem humidifier which will produce more humidity faster...

House is dry though it's quite cold outside and furnace is running. Aprilaire is turned up to 35 (I have a dial, not a digital panel). the water panel is completely dry (should it be?)


unless the humidty in your home is higher then 35%. if it is then the humidifier would not run. try turning it up higher and see if it comes on. Do you hear a click in the humidistat? as you turn up the dail when you hear the click is when the humidifier should come on. Also remember your furnace must be running for the humidifier to come on. if you hear the click and the humidifier fan comes on but no water, you may have a clogged inline filter located in the solinoid valve or a bad soliniod. all parts for your humifier can be purchased from www.aprilaire.com

Dry house with furnace mounted humdifier


Is the furnace fan set on auto or on. You will get better humidity if you keep the fan on. It won't add much to your electric bill because many of the newer furnaces operate the fan on DC voltage. Try it!

How do I know my aprilair 760 humidifier is working?


A simple check you can perform on your aprilaire 760 is the following:
1) locate the two brown wires coming out of the 760 (these wires will be wired to tell the 760 to turn on when the hvac bower is on and the humidistat is calling for moisture).
2) temprarily disconnect the two brown wires from the external wiring and then short the wires together. All you're doing here is bypassing the your thermostat and bower-on indicator.

With the 70 unit plugged in to the wall outlet and the two brown wires connected together, both the fan and the solenoid valve (water inlet valve) should both be activated.

What should my humidifier be set at for the winter?


Hi, Jennifer:

I'm no expert, but those who are seem to agree that the first thing to check is your evaporator panel. Aprilaire recommends replacing it annually--so if you haven't replaced it recently, that would be the first step to take. Next, check the power supply to your Aprilaire unit. Turn the humidistat to 0%, and then turn it slowly back toward 35% until you hear a click at the unit. If you don't hear a click, you'll want to check that the unit is in fact getting electric power (you may want to get an electrician or furnace tech to do this). If you do hear the click, the next thing to check is whether you have sufficient water flow to your Aprilaire unit. On mine, I had to adjust my water supply saddle valve, as well as the inline valve on the discharge side of the solenoid (see prior post from this morning)--and this seemed to clear the lines and restore water flow. Once you achieve proper water flow, you will probably want to set your humidistat at 35% for winter temps of around 20 degrees F--but be sure to adjust it downward for colder weather. Comments, anyone?
