Hello
It depends on personal preferance,an air conditionner is going to remove humidity or water from the home,as water contains heat.

I would shut off the humidifier.The 40% setting depends on where in the world your located,say nevada is dry and hot so you may want a humidifier.Where florida is hot and humid so you would want to dehumidify or get rid of the humidity.

Lower the setting to 20% or just turn it off.

I purchased a home with a aprilaire model 224. How do I know if its working?


Here is a link to the owners manual. http://www.aprilaire.com/themes/aa/en/manuals/Humidifiers_Owners_Manual.pdf
You can also pickup some cheap humidity gauges at a hardware store to check the settings on your unit verses the actual humidity in the house.

HI, Troubleshooting an Aprilaire Humidifier

Aprilaire, a manufacturer of indoor air quality products including thermostats, air cleaners and dehumidifiers, also offers a line of whole house humidifiers. Installed in your existing heating and cooling system, humidity is produced by a supplied water source that flows over a water panel before being distributed throughout your air through the heating and cooling system. Issues you may need to troubleshoot with your Aprilaire humidifier include error messages and the unit producing too little or too much humidity.

Things You'll Need:

Replacement water panel


Turn down the control dial by one setting if condensation appears on your windows or walls.


Turn up the control dial by one setting if there is a lack of humidity, often indicated by dry skin or peeling wallpaper or paint.


Turn the control dial to "Test/Reset" if the humidifier does not run. Verify the heating and air conditioning unit blower is operating. If the heating and air conditioning unit is not operating or you are unable to resolve the issue contact a heating contractor.


Contact a heating contractor if you turn the control dial to "Off" and the humidifier continues to run.


Contact your Aprilaire dealer (see Resources) if you notice an error code on the display and the "Call Dealer for Service" light flashes.


Turn the control dial to "Off" and turn off the water supply if the yellow "Change Water Panel" light flashes. Lift the front panel off of the humidifier. Slide out the water panel. Insert a new water panel. Replace the front cover. Turn the control dial to "Test/Reset" until the "Humidifier On" light flashes. If you feel uncomfortable changing the water panel, contact a heating contractor.


Tips & Warnings

Purchase replacement water panels through your Aprilaire dealer or a heating contractor.

If your humidifier is working properly, then the problem lies outside of the humidifier. For example how long does your furnance run when the thermostat calls for heat? If your furnace is oversized for your home, it will heat your home relatively quickly, and turn off, while your humidifier does not have a chance to work long enough for it to increase the humidity. If this is the case, you could try to set the thermostat to run the fan in manual mode instead of automatic. This will give the humidifier a chance to increase the humidity.

Hope this helps.

Humidity must be hi enough in the house or Humidistat is not working. Do you any way to check humidity in the house?
If the Humidistat is set as Automatic, try to leave it as Manual.
