WARNING
1. ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD.
Disconnect electrical power to the
furnace before starting installation.
Failure to do so could result in
serious injury from electrical shock.
2. SHARP EDGES HAZARD. Sharp
edges may cause serious injury from
cuts. Use care when making plenum
openings and handling ductwork.
3. RISK OF SCALDING. Water
temperature over 125°F can cause
severe burns and scald instantly.
Shut off the hot water supply before
disconnecting or tapping into any
hot water supply line.
CAUTION

RISK OF PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
HUMIDIFIER DIMENSIONS
5. Do not connect Model 500M or 500A
transformer to blower motor wiring.
Premature component failure may result.
6. When installing Humidifier Control on downflow
furnace, ensure blower continues to run after a
heat call is satisfied to eliminate high temperatures
from damaging the Humidifier Control.
7. Do not install humidifier where water pressure
exceeds 125 psi, since damage to the humidifier
may result. Follow codes in effect concerning
pressure reduction.
8. Do not install humidifier on systems with
greater than 0.4 in. wg pressure differential
between supply and return plenums.
1. Do not install humidifier where freezing temperatures
could occur. The water line could freeze and crack
causing water damage to the home.
2. Do not install humidifier or bypass connection on the
furnace jacket.
3. Do not install humidifier or bypass connection on a
plenum face where the blanked off ends of the cooling
coil will restrict air movement through the humidifier.
4. Do not set humidity level above recommended or to
recommended level if condensation exists on inside
windows of any unheated space, as condensation
damage may result. Excess humidity can cause
moisture accumulation which can allow the possibility
for mold growth in the home.

The Model 500M and 500A Aprilaire can be
installed on either the supply or return
plenum of a forced air handling system and
is easily reversible for installation with
right hand or left hand bypass duct
connections. The humidifier dimensions
and serviceability must be considered
when selecting the best location for the
humidifier. Here are 2 examples of many
types of installations.

MANUAL HUMIDIFIER CONTROL,
MODEL 500M:
Manual Control can be mounted in return
duct or on wall in living space. Knob and
cover must be removed to mount control.
See wiring diagram for 24V control
connections.
• For return duct mounting, position
template at least 6” upstream of bypass
duct connection or humidifier. Avoid
injury from sharp edges when cutting
opening. Make sure foam gasket is in
place and secure control to duct using
2 screws in openings provided.
• For wall-mount, select location that will
not be affected by drafts or heat
sources. Remove and discard foam
gasket and secure control to wall over
wire access opening using screws &
anchors provided.

8. Humidifier will function with cold, hot,
softened or unsoftened water. Hot water
(140°F max) will provide maximum
evaporative capacity. Saddle valve
provided may be used to tap into water
supply. See installation instructions on
saddle valve package. Saddle valve is
designed to be fully opened or closed.
Do not use to regulate flow.
9. Run 1/4” copper tubing from saddle
valve to solenoid valve. DOUBLE-WRENCH
TO PREVENT LEAKING. See Figure 3.
10. Run 1/2” I.D. hose from drain spud to
floor drain. Make sure drain has constant
downward slope and is not kinked. Do not
over-tighten hose clamp onto drain spud.
Do not use solvent adhesive on drain spud.
11. Check humidifier operation. Open
saddle valve and turn control to highest
setting. Turn on furnace. Allow humidifier
to run until water flows from drain. Make
sure all electrical connections are secure
and all plumbing connections are watertight. Set control to proper setting.
NOTE: BEFORE LEAVING THE
JOB SITE, MAKE SURE:
1. Saddle valve is fully open.
2. All plumbing connections are
watertight.
3. Humidifier functions properly.
4. Bypass damper is in proper
position.
