For HVACR contractors, humidity is a constant concern. Depending on which portion of the country you live in, the battle of too much or too little humidity is paramount. And, as homeowners and building owners yearn for greater control of their indoor climate, manufacturers are racing to develop technologically advanced equipment to help these decision makers achieve their indoor environmental goals.
Aprilaire has become known for its line of humidifiers, said Mike Rimrodt, director of marketing, Aprilaire, claiming the company’s humidifiers have sort of become the company’s flagship product and one of its biggest revenue sources. He noted the Model 800 Residential Steam Humidifier as one of the company’s most sought after devices.
“It turned out to be fantastic,” said Rimrodt, noting the Model 800 has a capacity of 11.5, 20.5, or 23.3 gallons per day depending on electrical draw, and can humidify tightly constructed homes up to 6,200 square feet.
