Aprilaire - Steam Humidifier


Aprilaire Model 800 steam humidifiers use electrode technology and are simple to install, operate, and maintain.  With electrode technology, electrical current flows between submerged electrodes, resistance of the water to the electric current heats the water.  The submerged electrodes are found in a replaceable canister.  At the end of a humidifier season, the canister – including the electrodes, is replaced.  No cleaning, no scrubbing, simply replace the canister and you’re ready for the next humidifier season.    Electrode technology requires impurities in the water to promote the transfer of electricity.  For this reason, water filtration is not required with electrode technology, minimizing the complexity of the installation and ongoing operating costs.

Clean Comfort -  Dehumidifier (DV090)

Dew points and relative humidity (RH) affect the way your body senses heat. Higher humidity levels cause the air to feel much hotter than the actual temperature. When maintained properly, you can run your cooling equipment less because dehumidified air feels cooler. Ideal humidity is defined by industry experts* as being between 40-60% on an average annual basis. When indoor humidity exceeds 60%, the home is more susceptible to mold and mildew growth. DV065 safeguards against excessive humidity in the home year-round.


  • Removes up to 65  pints (30.8 l) of water per day from the indoor air.
  • Provides Ventilation to the indoor space.
  • Electrocoating reduces coil corrosion and helps prevent refrigerant leaks.
  • Built-in transformer circuit breaker.
