Question about Aprilaire 360 Humidifier

1 Answer

I have an older NY apt. with radiator heat for winter. In summer, there is no A/C, but cold water runs thru pipes and blower fan "cools" the apt. (No idea what this system is called). It gets like an oven in the summertime. The thermofoil coating is now pealing off my kitchen cab. doors. Do I need a humidifier or a dehumidifier, and what kind? Apartment is open studio, about 855 sq ft..

If anything a dehumidifier. But before that, sounds like the building has 1 heating system , and no zone control, for the building. What you really need to do in this case is to shut the water line off before it hits the radiator. If not then close the valve on the radiator, it should look like a basic outdoors spicket knob. But if all else fails, get a dehumidifier.

Humidifier Running Continuously with Fan Blower


As long as the humidifier start/stop is regulated by air flow there is no way to cycle it on/off with another device. If, however you disconnect that capability and, instead wire it to the heat on cool on switch it will only turn on when the stat calls for heating or cooling. You may need to install an intermediate relay off the stat wires to regulate the different(assuming that they are) voltage of the humidifier start/stop.What a fun project, thanks!

How to change from summer to winter


Can you give a little more info? Usually depending on where you live, people use de-humidifiers in the summer and humidifiers in the winter. If you need a humidifier year around, there should be nothing you need to do uther than filter cleaning and checking the water valve and cleaning the pan of mineral deposits. Depending on your water, you might need to pour a cup of limeaway in your pan and let it run for a couple hours. Then drain it, flush it, and let it keep running.

Have a large new house with lots of vinyl clad wood double hung windows on a lake temp today this am is 0 F we have a HRV system house temp is 66 downstairs and 58 upstairs heating with a heat pump and...


Really not efficent to run a heat pump at those temperatures. Below freezing is not good for the compressor in the outside unit. The humidity in the house with the low temp. is causing the condensation on the windows to freeze. Kinda like an air conditoner does in the summer without the freezing humid air from the house goes over the cold a/c coil and the moisture condensates on the coil running down to drain pan. raising the temp. in the house and lowering the humidity should help. I would also recommend running the electric heat in low outside teperatures.

Aprilaire 600 humidity level too low


you may try running your blower 100% of the time.this should allow the humidifier to stay on even when your not heating. once the humidity level gets to where you want it, you may be able to put the fan selector back to auto. also you mentioned you have a variable blower. this is great if it is set up to run at approx. 20% fan speed when it is not heating or cooling. at 20% you can circulate enough air through the house to humidify without being able to hear the noise of the blower. it will really increase the comfort level of the house if you tend to have hot and cool spots. if it was not set up this way, contact the installer and ask if they can do this for you.

Power humidifier not operating when 2nd stage heat


If the installer used a #50 relay when they installed it they did not take in consideration the the fan will run at two different speeds in heating. Remove the #50 relay from the blower wire it is connected to. Reinstall it on the blowers white wire (neutral). This should fix the problem.
Good luck

Honeywell furnace humidifier thermostat & other


sounds like to me you have a condensation pump attached to your hvac system. this can be used to pump water produced during the cooling of your house when in the a/c mode. if you have a typical bypass humidifier, you will have excess water running past the water panel and it must be sent to a drain of some kind. I would imagine the pump is being used to get your bypass water to the drain. another scenario may be that you have a 90% condensing furnace. if your exhaust pipe for the furnace is made out of pcv pipe, it is a condensing gas furnace. it will produce water when it is running. the water if from the combustion gases being condensed in the secondary heat exchanger. this is normal. some condensing gas furnaces will draw combustion air from inside the house and some will have a second pvc pipe that is used to pulll combustion air from the outside of the house. either way, it is not dehumidifying your house. the humidifier should be able to keep up if it is runnng properly. you should have water running out the bottom drain of the humidifier any time the fan on your furnace is running and the humidistat is calling for humidity. if this is not happening, it is not wired properly.

Humidifier won't turn on with furnace fan set to Auto.


There is a devise called a current sensing relay (a little black box that hangs on a blower motor wire that senses current from that wire) If you have such a devise it should hang from the white (common) wire. Loop the wire through twice.
