Humidifier in the Summer?

Friday, June 5, 2009 by Tom Ruse
I just had a homeowner ask me if he should turn off his humidifier in the Summer. Good question!

Your Aprilaire Humidifier likely will not run in the summer unless the weather is cold enough and your thermostat setting calls for your furnace to heat your home. It is not required that you turn the unit off. It simply will not operate if there is no call for heat.
If you prefer, you can unplug the power to the unit and you can shut off the water supply to the unit during the summer, but it is not required.

This would be a good time to clean the unit and change out the water panel. Be sure you do that before the heating season starts again. Your local HVAC contractor or Aprilaire dealer can help with this at the same time you have them clean and check your entire system in the Fall.
Thanks for inquiring!!!
