The water feed line to the filter is currently malfunctioning. Will I cause any damage to my HVAC system if I remove the filter and allow air to flow though the unit without being humidified?
The model 560 Aprilaire humidifier can be utilized without the use of the water panel/filter without causing any harm to the HVAC equipment. We do recommend shutting off the water supply to the humidifier in this situation to eliminate the chance of any water being dispersed into the humidifier. In the event that the water panel is not installed in the humidifier the option for the humidifier to operate should be eliminated until the water panel is placed back in the unit. We would be happy to further assist you with any questions or concerns relating to the operation of your model 560 humidifier. If there are any questions please contact us at your earliest convenience.
