Minimal Maintenance

The Aprilaire 400 Dehumidifier does not require much maintenance at all.  You should visually inspect the unit every 500 hours, more frequently during heavy use.  Inspect the plumbing and water lines for cracks or leaks and replace as needed.  The one item that does require to be replaced is the water panel.  The water panel should be replaced annually during regular use, and every six months during heavy use.

• Built-in bypass damper
• 24 VAC Transformer
• Automatic Digital Humidifier Control
• Automatic Humidifier Control Installation Sheet
• Saddle valve
• One Water Panel

NOTE: Heat pumps: 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.) As such, your dealer will need to take the size and age of your home into consideration to ensure the Model 400 will provide satisfactory comfort and protection through adequate humidification.

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

by Lawrence D. from central new jersey on 03-10-2013

The 400 can be used on a gas furnace with out any issue when installed correctly.

on 03-12-2013

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?

by Kevin M. from New Jersey on 10-14-2012

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

by PASQUALE S. on 10-12-2012

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.
