The Aprilaire 600M ByPass FlowThru Humidifier is a whole-home solution that helps homeowners reach their optimal indoor comfort through humidity control.
The 600M is designed to work in large to mid-sized homes, efficiently humidifying up to 4,000 sq. feet and dispersing 17 gallons of water daily.
This manual bypass unit mounts directly to the duct of your heating and cooling system, allowing the humidity to be placed directly into the airflow and distributed evenly throughout the home. It can be mounted on the supply or return duct (plenum) and is also easily reversible for right or left hand installation.
Additionally, this model will connect to a water line so you don't need to worry about filling it multiple times a day.

The Aprilaire 600M bypass humidifier is a manual humidifier, meaning that this unit does not come with a digital, automatic humidistat like the Aprilaire 600 Unit. It comes standard with an Aprilaire 4655 manual humidistat that can be wall or duct mounted on the return plenum of your unit. With this humidistat you will need to manually set and change the humidifier settings with any changes in the weather.
The Aprilaire 600M Humidifier is Shipped to you as a Complete System that Includes:
- 1 Aprilaire 600M humidifier with a built-in bypass damper
- 1 #35 Water Panel
- 1 Model 4655 Manual Humidistat
- 1 Self-Piercing Saddle Valve
- 1 24 vac Transformer
- Items that are not included: 6" bypass duct, copper tubing, drain tubing, and thermostat wire.
This humidifier requires a plenum opening of 10" W by 12 3/4" H.
For electrical reference, this unit operates on 24 Volts at 60Hz with a .5 AMP requirement.
*Important note: If the Aprilaire bypass 600M humidifier is installed on a heat pump system it is best to connect the unit to a hot water line.
Aprilaire recommends a #4839 maintenance kit be used each humidification season to ensure that your 600M humidifier is operating optimally. Furthermore, using a genuine Aprilaire #35 water panel is highly suggested. This water panel was designed specifically for the Aprilaire 600M humidifier and provides the most comfortable and efficient output. Don't trust the aftermarket products to provide the same quality and overall experience as the genuine #35 Aprilaire water panel.
