great humidity control, yet very miserly with water usage
1 week ago
Summary: After about a month of use, this humidifier is performing perfectly. The digital control is doing a great job keeping the humidity in the house at a comfortable level. And the design is amazing for anyone concerned about the amount of water it uses. My previous humidifier (also an Aprilaire) used gallons of water. The condensate pump ran frequently, pumping out the water discharged from it.
Summary: We have a wood furnace and a log house and boy was it drier than dry this past winter (which was our first in this house) we bought this and paid a handyman to install it. It works pretty darn good in this big o'l house. So recommend this product. Especially since it doesn't require a drain line.
... install and was advised they thought the unit as good as many costing 3 times as much

Summary: Had my heat and air company install and was advised they thought the unit as good as many costing 3 times as much. Time will tell but for now that makes me happy. The name Aprilaire has been around for some time and I believe can be counted on.
Summary: This humidifier is awesome! It works just like it should. I have read many reviews and some of them say that this thing does not work like it should, what I/we have found out is that most of these people must think that magic is real? in general this works like stated in the instructions, the humidity in my house 2500 sq ft ranch in Michigan bounces between 30~60% most all year.
Summary: My installer said it wouldn't work. I recommend showing pictguryour current setup to installer before buying this. Also A/C people I called had no experience or time&interest to do small job like this.
Summary: Purchased to replace and ancient and water wasting Model 200. This is not a drop in replacement, however, anyone with some DIY experience should be able to handle the installation. Unit is working excellent, and no more wasted water!
Summary: The humidifier works fine but there was considerable effort in installing it that cost me much more than the humidifier did. I will check on what is involved in the installation before I buy another humidifier.
Summary: I love whole house humidity and have had these units in each house I've owned. They have been phenomenal units in terms of home humidity. I would not hesitate to recommend their purchase to any potential buyer.
Summary: I spent a lot of time deciding on a humidifier. I checked humidity levels all over the house and they were pretty consistent at 23-25% at 25-30 degrees outside. My home is 3000 sf and the specs for this model put that size at its limit. I was debating between the 600 and this model, the 400. Ultimately, I picked this model for its efficient water usage and after a lot of use I am positive I made the right choice.
