Heat pumps: Aprilaire Model 400 can be installed in heat pump applications. However, due to the fact that heat pumps deliver lower temperature air to the home than gas furnaces, evaporation will be approximately 60% of rated capacity. (With other Aprilaire models hot water can be used instead of cold to maximize evaporation. However, due to the nature of the wicking water panel in the Model 400 hot water provides no extra benefit.

Trouble deciding between the Aprilaire 400 and 600
I had some trouble deciding between the Aprilaire 400 and 600 but opted for this one because it's automatic (didn't want to adjust the humidity level every time the RH changes). I also like that it humidifies the air even when the furnace is turned off. Great humidifier, I am glad I picked it.

Questions & Answers
can this aprilaire 400 be used on a gas (propane) furnace that is in an unheated attic?? is there a humidifier made for such an application
The 400 can be used on a gas furnace with out any issue when installed correctly.
I am looking to replace my existing Aprilaire 400A and understand this is it's replacement unit with additional benefit. My question is when I installed the first one my opening to the cool side return was 11"H X13.5"W. In looking at the specs for this unit the opening is smaller. My question or concern is how to handle that delta? Do I seal the first opening and start over or look to reduce the existing open to make the specs for this new model?
The Aprilaire 400 is the same model as the 400A, however, it was simply re-named. This is not a replacement to a discontinued item.
is there an on/off switch for the transformer on an 400 humidifier
No, this unit requires 24V connection. Attempting to operate this at line voltage (120V) will damage the unit. Do not attempt this, the transformer is for your own safety.
