  Free Indoor Digital Hygrothermometer included with each 1770A Dehumidifier


The new Model 1770A replaces the model 1720 dehumidifier.  It features:

* Updated housing color
* New LED status and service indicator tells you when the unit is running normally, sampling, defrosting and when it is in need of service

Excess humidity in the air can cause homes to be smelly, musty and noticeably damp.  Nobody wants to go there, play there, be there.  Excess humidity can damage basement furniture and furnishings, cause wood to swell and fabric to rot.  Stored items grow mildew and wall paneling peels.  High basement humidity can lead to health threatening conditions too.  Any basement with relative humidity regularly above 60% can become the perfect breeding ground for a variety of pathogens like mold, mildew and fungi.

Common portable dehumidifiers are a weak answer - they don't perform well in cooler basement environments and you typically need more than one to treat your entire home.

The solution - This Aprilaire Central Dehumidifier is designed specifically to control humidity inside the whole home as well as in crawlspaces and attics.   Built-in duct collars alow for easy connection to the central HVAC system.  This dehumidifier automatically and continually measures the true measure of moisture level, dew point. The unit operates to control humidity to the dryness set point that is either set on the unit or on the optional living space control. A built-in, automatic air cycling feature can be utilized to activate the HVAC fan to cycle the air throughout the whole home for proper balance for comfort.  This dehumidifier also has a patented, built-in ventilation feature, which will allow fresh air to be brought into the home from the outside. In utilizing this feature, the dehumidifier will dehumidify the incoming air, if needed (based on dew point / dryness set point), as the outside air is first entering the home. The built-in ventilation feature is designed to be able to meet ASHRAE 62.2 Standard for Ventilation. 

The Aprilaire Model 1770A Whole-House Dehumidifier works throughout your entire home. It's Energy StarŪ rated, removing 50% more water per kilowatt hour than leading portable dehumidifiers. The Model 1770 also features truly automatic control, so there's never a need to manually control the dehumidifier-just set it once and forget it!

The Aprilaire Models 1750 and 1770A Whole-House Dehumidifiers offer total comfort from the sticky, sweaty, and potentially unhealthy conditions caused by excess moisture. The 1750 and 1770A models differ only in capacity-with the 1770A with total removal capacity of up to 150 pints per day.

The Best Choice for healthy, comfortable air is the Model 1770A Whole-House Dehumidifier installed in your new or existing heating and cooling system. The benefits and results speak for themselves:   

  • Provides three times the moisture removing capacity of leading portable dehumidifiers-up to 150 pints or 18.75 gallons per day
  • Has no tank to empty - unit can be attached to home's water drainage system with 1" PVC pipe.  Can also be gravity drained into floor drain or sump pit.  Can use optional condensate pump to pump water up to a sink.
  • Automatically senses moisture levels and maintains optimum humidity levels in your home, never too much, or too little and running only when needed
  • Switches automatically between whole-house dehumidification when central air-conditioning system is running, and localized dehumidification when your air-conditioning isn't running
  • Convertible from whole-home to localized application lets you solve excess moisture issues where you need it most from crawl spaces to attics and basements
  • Can be operated manually, allowing you to monitor and control moisture levels in a specific location-such as your basement or master bedroom (optional Living Space Control is required)
  • Easy to use - level the feet, and plug it in, and set the humidity level! 
  • Powerful, 500 CFM Fan
  • Includes aluminum MERV 8 filter for air intake - can be washed or replaced annually or semi-annually depending on conditions
  • On-board LED panel provides easily understood feedback / validation on the unit's operation and performance.  The LED's tell you when the unit is running, sampling, and when there is a problem with the unit.
  • Includes PVC condensate trap - must be used to prevent backflow of condensate.
