Aprilaire Humidifiers Overview

Aprilaire Humidifiers

Aprilaire humidifiers set the gold standard for whole house humidification at an affordable price. For many years, Aprilaire has been the market leader in providing two main types of residential humidifiers:

  • Bypass humidifiers – can produce 12 – 17 gallons of humidification per day and utilize a small bypass duct to introduce moisture into the air stream
  • Power-spray humidifiers – can produce 18 gallons of humidification per day and utilize a power-spray mechanism to introduce moisture into the air stream

Both the bypass and power-spray humidifiers offer excellent performance, comfort enhancement, reliability, and low maintenance requirements. The type you choose will be based on factors such as the square footage of the home, ductwork type and location, accessibility, and budget. In general, bypass humidifiers cost less and are used in most average-sized homes, while the power-spray models like the Aprilaire 700 and Aprilaire 700M humidifiers are used in larger homes or in special applications.

The eight residential Aprilaire humidifier models are as follows:

HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) installation companies appreciate the fact that Aprilaire humidifiers are simple to install, and homeowners recognize that Aprilaire humidifiers are easy and inexpensive to maintain.
