Aprilaire 500 Whole House Humidifier, Automatic Compact Furnace Humidifier
Aprilaire introduced the first evaporative humidifier for forced air furnace systems back in 1954. Since that time, Aprilaire continues to lead the industry in whole home humidification systems. Our evaporative humidifiers work by piping water into the distribution tray located at the top of the humidifier. The water is uniformly distributed across the width of the tray and through a scientifically designed system of outlets. It flows by gravity over the water panel evaporator. Dry, hot air from the HVAC system is moved through the moisture-laden water panel evaporator. Natural evaporation takes place, the water is turned to vapor, and the humidified air is circulated throughout your home. The models 400, 500, 600, 700 and 800 include the automatic digital humidifier control which is designed to only be installed on the cold air return duct of the HVAC system. It cannot be installed on a wall in the living area as airflow will not adequately get to the humidity sensor on the control. This results in inaccurate humidity levels.
