Aprilaire #70 Living Space Controller, for use with Aprilaire Model 1750A and 1770A Dehumidifiers.
The Model 1750A / 1770A Dehumidifier may be difficult to access in locations such as attics and crawlspaces, and you may wish to control the moisture level in a specific area, such as a living room or master bedroom. The Model 70 Living Space Control provides you with a convenient, accessible means of turning the Model 1750/1770 Dehumidifier on and off and allows for adjustment of the dryness level set point. The Model 70 Control contains its own sensors that override the Model 1700 main control board sensors when connected and enabled. Therefore, the control should be located in an area where the homeowner wants to monitor and control moisture levels. MOUNT CONTROL:
