This model is one of the most sought-after humidifiers on the market. A lot of users we contacted praise it for its effectiveness and reliability. It definitely gets the job done, keeping the household optimally humidified.

The Aprilaire 700M works with your cooling or heating system and it can humidify up to 4,200 square meters. It’s fan-powered and has evaporation capacity of 0.75 gallons per hour. This practically means the Aprilaire 700M can give around 18 gallons of mist per day – more than enough to keep you happy.

Well done there.

As far as the design is concerned, the manufacturer kept it simple. We can’t say this is the most visually appealing humidifier out there because it’s not. It’s like a mini AC unit.

But for many users, this wasn’t a problem. Actually, owners of this unit really like the basic, straightforward design of this humidifier. The most important thing is the product is reliable.

What else?

The Aprilaire 700M is installed on your HVAC system. It has a built-in fan to pull the air, and the unit can complement all HVAC systems, which means you’re covered.

Now, since we’re mentioning the HVAC system, it’s important to note this. When it comes to these types of humidifiers, be sure to hire a professional to install it for you.

It may seem simple and easy, but it’s not. You need to know a lot about electricity, plumbing and HVAC systems. So many people we contacted told us they regret even trying to do this on their own.

So, to avoid any unnecessary headaches – play it safe and hire a professional. This is also important when it comes to maintenance. A trained HVAC professional will do the job much faster, and you won’t have to worry about anything. Just a little word of advice there…

If you just one a simple, single room, plug in and go type model, check out some of these we reviewed right here.

Okay, back to features...

The Aprilaire 700M uses a water panel for humidification, and this part should be replaced twice a year. The display is easy to read, so you don’t have to worry about that. You will always be able to read the indoor humidity level. And if you add to this the 5-year warranty, it’s a pretty good humidifier, overall.

Mind you, in order to activate the warranty, you’ll have to fill out this form.

A couple of minuses, though.

Some find it a bit noisy. The noise comes from the fan motor and you practically can’t hear when the unit’s operating slowly. But when it’s in full swing, it’s loud.

This doesn’t have to be a problem per se, because it’s expected from a humidifier of this power. Nevertheless, wanted you to know this… But this is a major complaint coming from most users of the Aprilaire 700M. They simply didn’t expect it to make so much noise.

Overall, this is a great product so many users praise. It’s effective and gets the job done.
