Description and Features
- The Aprilaire 700 Whole House Humidifier is a solid piece of equipment that can perform up to the level described in its promotions. Its suitability for your specific home will depend on the type of ductwork you have as well as the size of your home and its general construction. The Aprilaire 700 is a compact unit, measuring only 16 x 11 x 18 inches and weighing in at only 15.8 pounds.
- Digital control allows you to precisely set the amount of humidification the unit will provide. The backlit LED screen features large numbers for easy reading and a simple dial to easily adjust to your desired level. The quiet performance means you won’t have to adjust the volume on your TV when the unit kicks on, and it won’t interfere with normal conversations when you have guests in.
- Simple yearly maintenance is all that’s needed to keep the unit running smoothly for years to come. According to the manufacturer, the Aprilaire 700 humidifier’s annual maintenance checklist consists of replacing the humidifier filter, or water panel evaporator, and washing out the pad frame and water distribution tray.
- For a home do-it-yourself novice, installation may be an issue. The unit does not come with an installation kit per se, so additional installation parts may be needed. Items such as the specific size and length drainage tube, water supply hookup tubing, and duct sealant or sealant tape may need to be obtained at your local hardware store before installing the unit. It does come with a water supply saddle.
