About This Product

MFG: Aprilaire
MFG#: 76
Our#: 177353

Aprilaire #76 control is for use with any dehumidifier requiring a normally open control, including Aprilaire Models 1710A, 1730A, 1750A, 1770A.

Your 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 76 Living Space Control provides you with a convenient, accessible means of turning the dehumidifier on and off and allows for adjustment of the dryness level set point. The Model 76 Control contains its own sensors that override the dehumidifier 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.   In addition, the model 76 control can be used to control the humidity level of the space where the dehumidifier is located from any convenient location within the living space. The model 76 displays the humidity level from the area where the dehumidifier is located by receiving the information from the onboard sensor in the dehumidifier

NOTE: This is a 24Volt Control - and requires power from external 24V Transformer.  Connect the wires from the C and R terminals on the Model 76 to the HVAC or thermostat C and R terminals for power.

      Comments about Aprilaire #76 Living Space Control:

      Use it as an external control for my aprilaire 1750a dehumidier. Harder to wire up than I imagined... Needs 24v ac not available from dehumidier, so need to supply from your hvac system. Thought it was not working at first, but it was just that dehumidifier takes some time to start responding to control after power down and power back up. No backlight... But thats ok. All working fine.
