Why does Aprilaire offer an automatic and a manual humidifier control for the Aprilaire humidifiers?

As the #1 manufacturer of humidifiers in the country, Aprilaire feels it is important to offer a humidifier control option for all applications. The automatic digital humidifier control is the top of the line when it comes to technology. An outdoor temperature sensor continuously reports changes in the outdoor temperature to the automatic digital humidifier control located on the cold air return duct. The automatic digital humidifier control uses this information to determine if the home requires additional humidity, to ensure the optimum humidification level is maintained. However, we realize there are some applications where it is impractical or impossible to run an outdoor temperature sensor to the outside. This is why we provide a high quality manual humidifier control for such applications. The automatic digital humidifier control also includes the option of operating in manual mode. Manual operation requires the homeowner to manually adjust the humidity level on the humidifier control as the outdoor temperature changes. Having these options allows flexibility to meet every customer’s humidification needs.
