Do we just turn the dial to turn on the humidifier now that the heater is on, or does the water need to be turned on as well, and, if so, how do we do that?

Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for contacting us regarding your model 600. Now that your furnace is running, you can turn your humidifier control on to your preferred range. Also, you would need to make sure that water is being supplied to the humidifier. To do this, start by making sure the saddle valve is open. The saddle valve can be found by following the water supply line from the solenoid valve back to where the saddle valve is connected to a main water supply line. Once you've confirmed the saddle valve is supplying water to the humidifier, the humidifier is ready for the winter.

We recommend replacing the water panel (filter) at the beginning of the heating season for maximum performance. Genuine Aprilaire water panels can be purchased from your installing contractor or by visiting our estore at the following link: http://estore.aprilaire.com/catalog/humidifiers/model-600-series-parts/253

If you have any further questions regarding this or any of our products, please feel free to contact our customer service department at your earliest convenience.
