hey everyone we are on site at an April
air manufacturing facility in Madison
Wisconsin where people all around us are
building products that deliver you
healthy air every single day today we
are going to do an unboxing and
installation of our evaporative
humidifiers line to show you just how
simple it is to get people humidity
inside the home without further ado
let’s get started
first thing that we’re gonna do is take
the humidifier and all the components
out of the box simple box cutter get
right through that tape on both sides
let’s open it up and get out the goodies
starts with this this is probably the
most important thing in this box outside
of the humidifier itself this is both
the installation guide as well as the
template for how you cut the duct in
order to install the model 700
humidifier so on the front you’ve got
your template on the back you have your
instructions next we have the owner’s
manual everything that you need to know
to run the humidifier sits right in here
we have our model 60 automatic digital
humidistat we have our accessory bag
comes with screws and outdoor
temperature sensor 24 volt transformer
for connecting the humidifier to the
HVAC equipment using the control and
finally we have the model 700 right here
then underneath the humidifier you’re
going to have this sticker for the
homeowner which is going to tell them
when to change out the water panel and
to only use a genuine April air water
panel with their humidifier now we’re
going to show you how the components
that you’ve taken out of the box relate
back to your evaporative humidifier
first and foremost power cord 120 volts
simply plug it in let it run okay next
we have where we connect our water line
quarter-inch copper line is what we
recommend here
insulated if needed our lead wires
coming out of this humidifier for
connecting it to the 24 volt transformer
back to its control and to the HVAC
system alright let’s open this up and
take a peek at what’s on the inside so
to open this up we’ve got this tab right
here simply going to open that pops
right open that exposes two crucial
pieces to this humidifier number one is
our evaporative water panel number 35
water panel only replaced with a genuine
April arrow a.m. water panel that
ensures performance and you’ll also see
your feed tube here this is what carries
the water from the solenoid valve and
allows it to trickle down the panel now
that we have everything ready to install
our humidifier it’s time to put the
humidifier on the ductwork showing what
we would call the supply plenum right
here we’ve got one mocked up for
everybody to see now first thing that
you’re gonna need to do get your
template out of the box square it up to
your ductwork now in the box comes a
paper template you could tape this up to
here make sure that it’s perfectly
square so that you cut out the right
size hole or great news for you we got
better stuff now this right here form
number 273 go to April air partner’s
calm right now order some of these up
these are the new magnet templates they
go right up on the ductwork they’re
completely reusable super easy to square
up we’re gonna use this in order to put
our humidifier installation together
keeping in mind two things that you
already know number one you’re not gonna
be on the blanked off side of the coil
number two you’re gonna be high enough
above the coil so you’re gonna get good
air flow once this is in place most
crucial step of your template let’s make
sure it’s level now we cheated we did
this ahead of time so we know when we
put this level up here look at that
we’re in great shape
alright so templates up magnetic it’s
working great it’s nice and square we’re
gonna take out our magic sharpie now
we’re gonna align the outline of this
template so we know the space that we
got a cut line is up template comes down
perfect time to cut alright so we’re
gonna create a starter hole here so that
we can cut around our opening now you
guys got way better tools to do this
it’s gonna be much easier on you don’t
make too much fun of me I’m a novice at
this but we’re gonna put this starter
hole in we’re gonna get started okay so
our humidifier frame has been inset now
you’ve got little levers on the inside
that you’re gonna rotate down in order
to secure this to the ductwork this will
prevent your humidifier from shifting
okay once our frame is secured what
we’re gonna want to do is make sure that
there are no air gaps around it so
you’re gonna want to seal this up
dealer’s choice here you can either use
a tape or you can run a betta clock
around it in order to ensure that you
have no air escaping around the
humidifier so now we’re gonna put our
water panel back in now our water panel
there is a correct way for this to go in
number one drain spud to the bottom
number two you’ll see this little groove
at the top this is for the water feed
tube to go past okay water panel goes in
make sure that the notch is pointed in
so it can slide past the feed tube and
we are installed alright so now we’re
gonna put the cover on our model 700
humidifier super easy to do we just
gotta pay attention to a couple of
things number one this tab at the bottom
this goes on last
I always state that because people do it
the opposite way all the time your
humidifier will not seal these hooks at
the top of the humidifier they go on
first let me show you how so these just
hook right over the top just like so
okay and then we push it closed first
time every time
okay so our humidifier is all installed
through the ductwork now it’s time to
hook up the last crucial components in
order to make it work
first thing that we’re gonna have to do
run the water line right here
humidifiers can humidify if they don’t
have water quarter-inch line use two
wrenches tighten this up make sure
you’ve got a good seal so you don’t have
any leaks then we simply install our
drain hose refer to local codes
to ensure you are doing the proper type
of draining now you’re gonna have to run
these two lead wires according to the
installation instructions these will run
back through the control the 24 volt
transformer and circulate back through
the system in order to ensure proper
operation time for the 700 itself and
then finally we’re gonna plug in our
power cord and that’s going to give us
life our humidifier is now successfully
installed on the ductwork
it’s time to hook it up to a control in
order to do this we’re going to need to
cut into the ductwork on the return side
so that we can make a space for our
sensor here this requires a 3/4 inch
hole to be cut into the ductwork so the
sensor can be placed into the stream of
air this foam gasket will seal it so
that we don’t have any interference from
outside air
okay so we’ve drilled our 3/4 inch hole
in the ductwork for our sensor now it’s
time to put the control in place here’s
how we do it first thing we need to do
remove the style slides right off then
we can pop the cover off of the control
this exposes where we have our screw
holes for mounting to the ductwork and
also allows you to align your sensor
okay so we’ve dropped our sensor in
place and with the hole that we’ve cut
out I’ve secured our control with one
sheet metal screw on the left on the
right hand side we have a larger opening
this allows you to rotate the control up
and down as needed to ensure that you
get your control level on the duck core
now before we put our cover back on our
control we have several steps that we
have to do one of the first ones we
should take care of is the setting for
our water panel change which is right
here now if you look real close it’ll
show it on the instructions this is
actually a little arrow that is cutout
into this white portion here this is
currently set to OFF what we’re going to
want to do for a 500 600 or a 700 is
make one of three choices we can either
leave it at off which will never tell a
homeowner when to change the water panel
we can take our little screwdriver and
we can rotate that arrow to be which is
what you would use if there was hard
water and that will tell it to change
the water panel every 300 hours of
operation your other option
is continue rotating down to C C is for
normal humidifier operation this will
tell it to change the water panel every
600 hours so we’re gonna leave it at C
next we have to decide are we gonna let
this control run in auto or manual we
add April air recommend that you always
run our automatic digital humidifier
control in auto mode however should you
want to use manual you simply flip this
switch to the right and when your
control power is on you will see a
little M at the top-right corner of the
control indicating that we are in manual
mode finally we’re gonna have to wire
our control up so this is your wiring
terminal strip right here and we’re
gonna walk you through right now where
you would connect all of our wires in
order to ensure proper humidifier
operation your first one is your R and C
this is going to give you the 24 volts
from the HVAC equipment if you reverse
the rnc terminals on the humidifier
control you’re not going to get proper
operation so ensure that you’ve got that
taken care of the right way the OD T is
the outdoor temperature sensor terminals
this is where you would hook up our
outdoor temperature sensor please refer
to the installation guide for proper
outdoor temperature sensor placement W
is for your heat from your HVAC
equipment G is the fan from the
thermostat your H terminals are your
solenoid control output and your GF is
the fan signal to the HVAC equipment for
using blower activation all right so now
it’s time to put our humidifier control
face back on okay really simple to do
all you got to do is take this line it
up it’s gonna snap in place you’ll hear
it click and you’re on now
we’re gonna want to take our dial and
reassert our dial so there’s a flat end
on this we just line it up with the flat
end here and everything is in place from
this point it’s a couple more decisions
we have to make first one being do we
want to run with blower activation on or
off at Aprilaire you’re always going to
have us tell you to run it on it’s the
only way to guarantee that you are going
to get the proper gallons per day from
your humid
fire so we say always leave that on if
you would like to turn it off it is a
little toggle switch underneath you flip
it to the left it’s off flip it to the
right and it’s on now
best practice let’s run a test reset
mode to do this we take our dial we’ve
got our little arrow here we’re gonna
rotate this all the way to test reset
and you’re in test reset when you hear
it click you’re gonna run your test
reset and it’s going to ensure that
everything’s hooked up and running the
way that it should when you’re done you
need to rotate this out of test reset we
get calls all the time where this is
missed and these are left in test reset
don’t be the person who calls us up
because we’re gonna laugh at you when
you don’t turn this back to where it’s
supposed to be take this out a test
reset and put it to the number of
humidity you’ve determined what the
homeowner is correct for their home then
you’re done our goal today was to ensure
that you had everything that you needed
to complete a successful installation
on-site should you find that we missed
something or there’s more information
