Consumer question:

Is it appropriate for the Aprilaire Model 760 humidifier to be running when the heating unit, and blower for the heater is not running?


Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for contacting us regarding your Aprilaire humidifier. When installed properly the humidifier should only operate when your furnace or HVAC fan is on. If your furnace or fan are not running, there is no moving air to absorb the evaporating water and carry the moist air to your home. If you your humidifier is running without the furnace or HVAC fan, we recommend contacting your service contractor to come to your home and service the unit.

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.
