Setting Or Changing The Program
Programming your Aprilaire Electronic Thermostat involves selecting the temperature you want in your
home and selecting the time you want it to be that temperature. Your Aprilaire Thermostat will allow a
maximum of 4 time schedules per day. Each time schedule is known as an “event.” The Morning event
is typically when you wake up and is the first event of the day. The Day event is typically set when you
leave for work. The Evening event is typically set when you come home from work and the Night event
is set when you go to bed. Each event will have 2 temperatures, 1 heating temperature and 1 cooling
temperature. The cooling temperature must be at least 2 degrees higher than the heating temperature.
Your Aprilaire Thermostat allows 1 program for Monday through Friday and 1 program for Saturday and
Sunday. Complete the chart on page 7 with your desired temperatures and time schedules before
beginning programming.
Progressive Recovery
Your Aprilaire Thermostat is equipped with a programming feature called “Progressive Recovery.”
This feature assures that your house will economically achieve the desired comfort temperature at
the programmed time when returning from an economy or setback temperature. For example, if you
like a wake-up temperature of 68°F at 6:00 AM from a setback of 65°F it is not necessary to set the
morning program for 5:00 AM. The thermostat will automatically start warming your house in advance
so your comfort temperature is reached on time.The progressive recovery feature must be activated
in order to work.
–5–

Page 8
To activate the progressive recovery
mode simultaneously press the
PROGRAM and FAN buttons. A small
thermostat icon, “
“, will appear
under the clock. Once in this mode
proceed with programming your
thermostat remembering to use exact
times for each event time change.
NOTE: If not using Progressive Recovery, it will take some time for your heating or cooling system to
reach the desired temperature when returning from a setback. Therefore, it is suggested you set your
program time before the actual time you want your home to reach the desired temperature. For example,
if you get up at 7:00 AM and have a 6 degree setback, set your Morning event at 6:00 AM to be sure the
desired temperature is reached by 7:00 AM.

For Best Performance
The Aprilaire Model 8554 thermostat is designed for accurate temperature control and easy
operation. The following guidelines should be followed to ensure proper operation of the thermostat:
1. When the thermostat is operating, close the cover to allow for proper air circulation over the
temperature sensor.
2. Do not place anything which can give off warm or cool air, such as candles, lamps, or portable
humidifiers, near the thermostat.
3. Although the thermostat is internally equipped to prevent short cycling of the heat pump, it is
possible to inadvertently override this protection. Do not start, stop, and restart the equipment
without allowing a minimum of 2 minutes between heating or cooling cycles.
Thermostat Operation
The Model 8554 is a full-featured thermostat which allows for additional control and operations after
basic time and temperature programming is completed. In addition to the programming buttons used
to set up all event times and temperatures, additional buttons control the following functions:

TEMPERATURE CONTROL
• Reading the Actual Room Temperature: The Model 8554 normally displays the room temperature,
not the set-point temperature.
• Check the Set-Point Temperature: Press and release the DECREASE
button or INCREASE
button. The thermostat will display the programmed set-point temperature and a thermometer for
5 seconds before automatically returning to the actual room temperature display.
• Temporarily Override the Set Temperature: Press and hold the DECREASE
INCREASE
button or
button to change the room set-point temperature in 1 degree increments.
The new set-point temperature will be held for 3 hours, then the thermostat will automatically
return to the program.
• Hold a New Temperature Set Point: Press and hold the DECREASE
button or INCREASE
button to change the room set-point temperature in 1 degree increments. The new set-point
temperature can be maintained indefinitely by pressing and releasing the HOLD button. The word
“HOLD” will be displayed. The thermostat will maintain this new set-point temperature until the
RESUME button is pressed returning the thermostat to the original program. This procedure is
typically used during extended vacant periods (vacations, business trips, etc.), to hold an economical
set point until you return.

• Returning to Programmed Operation: At any time, press the RESUME button to return the
thermostat to operate as programmed.
• Change Between °C and °F : The thermostat has the capability of displaying either Celsius or
Fahrenheit temperatures. If the displayed temperature seems abnormally high or low
(ie: 70˚F = 21˚C) you may need to switch to ˚C or ˚F by simultaneously pressing the
DECREASE
button and the INCREASE
button.
• Checking the Outdoor Temperature: If your thermostat was installed with the optional
Aprilaire Outdoor Temperature Sensor, simply press the OUTDOOR button and the
thermostat will display the outdoor temperature for 5 seconds before automatically returning
to the actual room temperature display.

EQUIPMENT CONTROL
• Turning on the Fan: At any time the system fan can run continuously by pressing the FAN button.
Note that a Fan icon, “
“, appears in the lower part of the display indicating that the fan is
continuously operating. To return the fan to the normal operating mode, press the FAN button again
which will remove the icon from the display. In the normal operating mode the fan will only run when
the heating or air conditioning is operating. Continuous fan operation is beneficial if your system is
equipped with a high efficiency air cleaner or a humidifier, or to circulate air in the home when
neither heating nor air conditioning is needed.
• Selecting Cooling Mode: Press the MODE button until the word "COOL" appears on the display.
In this mode the cooling system will maintain the temperature according to the programming
previously completed unless an override temperature has been entered. Note that a Snowflake icon,
“

display, which flickers when the heat pump is running. Your thermostat will automatically turn on
and off any additional stages of heating as required.
• Selecting Emergency Heat Mode: Press the mode button until “E Ht” appears on the display. In this
mode, the back-up heat source (other than the heat pump) will maintain temperatures according to
the programming previously completed unless an override temperature has been entered.
• Automatic Heating and Cooling: This mode can be useful during times of the year and in climates
when it is cool at night requiring heating but warm in the afternoon requiring cooling. Press and
release the MODE button until the word "AUTO" appears on the display. In this mode the heat pump
will maintain the temperature according to the programming previously completed unless an
override temperature has been entered. The heating and cooling systems will not operate at the
same time. Either will turn on depending on which programmed set point is closest to the room
temperature. Note that both the Snowflake, “
“, and Flame, “
“, icons are on the display.
The Snowflake will flash or the Flame will flicker depending on whether the heat pump is
heating or cooling.
• Turning the System Off: Press the MODE button until the word "OFF" appears on the display. In this
mode neither heating nor air conditioning will operate regardless of the temperature. The thermostat
– 19 –
110-792B
7/12/01
8:28 AM
Page 22
can still be programmed, the optional outdoor temperature sensor will work and the heat pump fan
will turn on if the FAN button is pressed. To avoid frozen water pipes, DO NOT use the OFF mode for
long periods of time during sub-freezing temperatures.
NOTE: After selecting a new mode, the thermostat initiates a delay of up to 4 minutes to protect the heat pump.
Setting High And Low Balance Points
If your system is installed with the required Model 8041 Remote Outdoor Sensor, the high and low
balance points should have been properly set by your contractor.
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. 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.
To review the set points, press and hold the OUTDOOR button, then 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.
– 20 –
110-792B
7/12/01
8:28 AM
Page 23
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.
Using The Available Red LED Indicators
This model is equipped with 3 LED indicator lights. These LEDs are located along the top edge of the
thermostat panel (not on the display) and look like small clear edges protruding out of the top of the
thermostat. The center LED is factory wired and will glow red when the back-up heat source is being
used. When the left and/or right LED is supplied with a 24-VAC signal, the LEDs glow red and can be used
to indicate many other system functions, such as when the humidifier or fresh air exchanger is running.
Use of left and right LEDs will require additional wiring at the thermostat and equipment which should
only be done by a qualified heating and cooling contractor.
Optional Settings For Additional Thermostat Features
The Model 8554 thermostat is equipped with 6 DIP switches located inside the thermostat on the printed
circuit board. These switches are preset by the factory to typical home heating and cooling system
requirements. The installing contractor also reviewed the settings during installation to be sure the
thermostat will operate properly with your heating and cooling system.
– 21 –
110-792B
7/12/01
8:28 AM
Page 24
The DIP switches can however be changed to customize the thermostat’s operation to your particular
needs. This should only be done after consulting with your contractor.
The Model 8554 DIP switches control the following functions:
No. 1 – 4 min. / 2 min. Minimum Equipment On/Off Times. This switch is factory preset at 2 minutes.
This switch provides short cycle protection for the heat pump. If you feel that the heat pump turns
on and off too many times per hour, ask your contractor about changing the switch to a 4 minute
minimum on time. Keep in mind, however, that this may increase the overall temperature variation
in the house due to longer run and off times. DO NOT change the position of this switch without
first consulting with your contractor.
No. 2 – Keypad Lock. If tampering with the thermostat is expected and unwanted, the keypad can be
locked by moving this switch from the factory set OFF position to the ON position. This should not
be done until all programming is finalized. In the locked position only the following functions can
be done:
•
The outdoor temperature button will display the outdoor temperature.
•
The DECREASE
button or INCREASE
button will temporarily change the set point
a maximum of ±6°F (±3°C) for a period of 3 hours, before the thermostat
automatically returns to the original program.
– 22 –

Page 25
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 pushing any buttons other than the buttons
outlined above.
No. 3 – Normal Heat Pump/Add-on Heat Pump. This switch is factory preset (to the OFF position) to
operate in the normal heat pump mode. If your heating and cooling system is an Add-on heat
pump configuration, your contractor changed the position of this switch to match your equipment.
Do not change the position of this switch as it could result in extraordinarily high operating costs.
No. 4 – This switch is not used and must remain in the OFF position.
No. 5 – Free LED 1 with LCD Filter Symbol. When moved to the ON position, this switch turns on a
replace Filter icon on the LCD display screen when a 24-volt signal is sent to the LED 1 terminal.
If your heat pump has the required controls for automatically determining when to change the air
filter, this feature is beneficial. Consult your contractor for further information.
No. 6 – Free LED 2 with LCD Wrench Symbol. When moved to the ON position, this switch turns on a
Wrench icon on the LCD display screen when a 24-volt signal is sent to the LED 2 terminal. If your
heat pump has the required controls for automatically signaling when a particular problem exists,

In Case Of Power Failure
The Model 8554 thermostat does not require a battery. If the power goes out the letters “AC” appear on
the display indicating power is not being supplied to the thermostat. “AC” will remain on the display for
up to approximately 1 hour after the power goes out. During the period that the power is off, the
heating/cooling system will not operate.
This thermostat is equipped with a continuous memory feature which does not require a battery. The
thermostat will never lose what has been programmed regardless of the length of the power outage.
If the thermostat has been set to “Hold” a particular temperature, and the power fails, the thermostat
will resume that temperature when the power is restored.
After a period of 1 hour without power the clock will need to be reset. The clock will default to
12:00 AM. Refer to the Programming Instructions to reset the clock.
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.
