Hello Dan,

Thank you for contacting Aprilaire.

Yes, the 400 does not drain, it will evaporate all of the water used.

The 600 uses no power, so would be less expensive to run than the 700.

When the 700 is operating, it is drawing air from the duct work, humidifies it, and blows it back into the duct work all in one spot. Also, yes, sometimes it has been reported that cold air would come out of the vents in the 700 during usage of the air conditioner.

It is difficult to offer 'utility expenses' since each home uses different amounts of water or electricity depending on the humidification needs.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Comments: I'm trying to decide between the 400, 600 and 700 whole house humidifiers. I like that the 400 wastes no water and uses cold water. Does the fan in the 700 draw air in from the basement or is it sealed so it only pulls heated air from the duct? Would air conditioned air escape from the 700 into the basement during the summer?About how much energy does the fan use on the 700? Will this cost me like $20 more per year in electricity than the 600, for example? How much less would the 400 be in utility costs than the 600 or 700? Thank you!
