About this Product
The Aprilaire 500M 24V Manual Bypass Whole-House Humidifier is an economical unit that is designed for use in smaller homes. Designed with ease of service in mind, the Aprilaire 500M 24V Manual Bypass Whole-House Humidifier replaces Aprilaire 550 and features a manual humidistat. The Aprilaire 500M 24V Manual Bypass Whole-House Humidifier has an evaporative capacity of 1/2 a gallon per hour and can handle a home that is up to 3,000 square feet if tightly constructed. The Aprilaire 500M 24V Manual Bypass Whole-House Humidifier also has the smallest "footprint" of the long line of Aprilaire humidifiers, and requires a plenum opening of only 9.5" x 9.5".
If you experience dry skin, cracked lips, or painful allergy symptoms, a humidifier will give you a breath of fresh air. By allowing moisture back into the air, you change the humidity, which can help alleviate these health concerns.
Benefits to Your House
Proper humidity can also help protect your home. Hardwood floors, moldings, crafted furniture, and fixtures can be damaged by dry air, making them brittle and easily cracked. A humidifier can help lessen damage and extend the life of your home.
Maintaining Your Humidifier
To increase the benefit of your humidifier, you should replace the water panel evaporator in your humidifier at least once a year. If you reside in a drier climate or if you have high levels of hard water in your system, you may need to change the filter more often. The “Change Water Panel” indicator light will blink to tell you when you need to change the filter.
Product must be installed by a qualified heating and air conditioning contractor. Failure to do so could result in serious injury from electrical shock and voids warranty due to possible product misapplication.

I was surprised by how much power this baby packs
I was surprised by how much power this baby packs. We have a 2,600- square-foot house and it has been able to maintain the proper humidity level (40-45%) in every room. If I could go back I would buy it again.
