Getting Familiar with the Aprilaire Thermostat
(refer to Figure 1)
The LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) normally shows: the room temperature, the current mode of operation, if
the Day or Night temperature setting is being used, and if the system fan is set for continuous operation.
Temperature Display
Room temperature can be displayed in either degrees Fahrenheit or degrees Celsius. If the displayed
temperature seems abnormally high or low (example: 70˚F is equal to 21˚C), press the DECREASE
button and INCREASE
button simultaneously to switch between ˚F and ˚C.
Mode Button
Four modes of operation are available for all the DSL heat pump thermostat models: Heat, Cool, Auto,
and Off. Additionally, with the Models 8536 and 8537, Emergency Heat mode is available. The mode of
operation indicates how you want your heating and cooling equipment to operate. Press the MODE
button until the desired mode of operation shows on the display.
Temperature Settings - Day/Night Button

Operating The Aprilaire Thermostat
1. Select the mode of operation by repeatedly pressing the MODE button until the desired mode
appears on the display (“E ht” = Emergency Heat – Models 8536 and 8537 only). The heating and
cooling system may be turned off by selecting the “OFF” mode. Do not set to the “OFF” mode
during periods when freezing temperatures may occur.
• COOL: In the “COOL” mode a Snowflake “
“ icon appears on the display, which flashes
when the heat pump is running.
• HEAT: In the “HEAt” mode a Flame “
“ icon appears on the display, which flickers when the
heat pump is running.
• EMERGENCY HEAT (Models 8536 and 8537 only): In the Emergency Heat mode, “E ht” appears on
the display and only the back-up heat source (other than the heat pump) will be used to maintain
temperature. The center LED (located at the top of the thermostat) will light when the back-up
heat source is running.
• AUTO: In the “AUtO” mode, the heat pump will operate in either the “HEAt” or “COOL” mode
depending on which current setting the room temperature is closest to. Note that both the
Snowflake “
“ and Flame “
“ icons appear on the display.

2. Select the temperature setting to be used by pressing the DAY/NIGHT button until the
desired previously stored temperature setting (Day or Night) appears on the display. Use the
DECREASE
button and INCREASE
button to change the temperature if desired (NOTE
that if changed, the new set point will be permanently stored in memory - see CHANGING THE
CURRENT TEMPERATURE SETTING).
3. After approximately 5 seconds the thermostat will return to the normal display.
Note: This thermostat utilizes time delays to protect the heating and cooling equipment. If the
equipment does not shut off or turn on immediately when the temperature setting has been
changed, it may be due to the built-in time delays (4 minutes max.).
4. Press the Fan button, if it is desired, to run the fan continuously. A Fan “

Changing The Current Temperature Setting
1. Press and release either the DECREASE
button or INCREASE
button to see the current
temperature setting. The setting, a Thermometer icon and a Double Arrowhead icon will appear
(see Figures 2 and 3 on pages 5 and 6).
2. Change the temperature setting:
OPTION 1 – Use the DECREASE
DECREASE
button or INCREASE
button or INCREASE
button. Press and hold the
button to change the current temperature setting. The
thermostat remembers the most recent temperature settings. For example, if the Day, Cool
temperature shown in Figure 3 were changed from 78˚F to 76˚F, the 76˚F setting would remain in
memory as the Day, Cool setting.
Note: The Cool temperature setting must remain 2˚F higher than the Heat temperature setting for
both the Day and Night sets. The thermostat will automatically update the setting not being
changed. In the example above, if the Day, Heat setting was 75˚F, the thermostat would have
automatically changed the setting to 74˚F when the Cool setting was changed to 76˚F.
OPTION 2 – Use the DAY/NIGHT button. Press the DAY/NIGHT button to instantly change the
temperature setting to one of the two settings stored in memory.

Optional Feature – Locking The Keypad
If tampering with the thermostat is expected and unwanted, the keypad can be locked by changing the
position of the Keypad Lock DIP switch (switch no. 4) from the factory set OFF position to ON.
The DIP switches are located inside the thermostat on the circuit board. To access the DIP switches,
refer to the Installation Instructions that came with the thermostat, or consult your contractor.
In the locked position, only the following functions can be done:
•
The outdoor temperature button will display the outdoor temperature.
•
The thermostat will default to the Day setting.
•
The DECREASE
button and INCREASE
button will temporarily change the Day setting
a maximum of ±6°F (±3°C) for a period of 3 hours before the thermostat automatically returns to
the Day setting.
If the thermostat does not respond when a button is pushed, it may be because the keypad has been
locked. A Lock “
“ icon will appear when a button other than Outdoor is pushed if the keypad has
been locked.

Setting High And Low Balance Points
(Models 8536 & 8537 only)
High and low balance points can only be accessed if the Aprilaire Model 8041 Remote Outdoor Sensor
has been installed. To check if this optional accessory has been installed, press the Outdoor button. If a
temperature appears, the Model 8041 Remote Outdoor Sensor has been installed.
During heating, heat pumps operate by extracting energy out of the outdoor air and transferring it to
the indoor air. This process is efficient over a wide range of temperatures. However, at low outdoor
temperatures there is a point at which it becomes more economical to operate the back-up heat without
the heat pump. This is called the Low Balance Point, “Lo bP”. Conversely, the use of back-up heat with
the heat pump during mild weather could use more energy than is required to heat the home. At
outdoor temperatures exceeding the High Balance Point, “Hi bP”, use of the back-up heat is limited
to Emergency Heat operation only.
To review the set points, press and hold the Outdoor button and press the Fan button. “Hi bP” and its
temperature value will appear on the display. Next, press the Outdoor button again and “Lo bP” and
its temperature value will appear on the display. After approximately 15 seconds the display will return
to normal.

After accessing a balance point, it can be changed by pressing the DECREASE
INCREASE
button or
button. This should only be done after consulting with a qualified contractor. Improperly
set balance points can result in increased energy expenses and possible equipment damage.
In Case Of Power Failure
This thermostat does not require a battery. If the power goes out, the display is blank. During the
period that the power is off, the heating/cooling system will not operate. When the power is restored,
the thermostat will default to the Day setting and the current mode of operation at the time of the
power outage.
This thermostat is equipped with a continuous memory feature which does not require any battery.
The thermostat will never lose the four programmed temperature settings regardless of the length of
the power outage.
Cleaning
If the surface of the thermostat becomes dirty it can be cleaned with plain water or many non-abrasive
household cleaners, such as glass cleaner. When using any cleaner be careful not to get any into the
interior of the thermostat. Do not spray any cleaner directly onto the thermostat. Spray the cleaner onto
a soft cloth and wipe the surface of the thermostat.
