Keep your entire home healthy, comfortable, and mold-free with the Aprilaire 1770A Whole House Dehumidifier. The 1770A is rated to remove 135 pints of damaging moisture per day under AHAM conditions (80 degrees F, 60% relative humidity) and covers large homes up to 2,900 square feet. The dehumidifier works with your HVAC system to dehumidify all of your rooms evenly and efficiently, unlike portable dehumidifiers that may cover limited areas. With just one system, you'll keep your home comfortable and protected against damaging mold.
The Aprilaire 1770A Dehumidifier installs as part of your central HVAC system and is typically located in your basement or attic. As your system runs, the dehumidifier pulls air in using the return ducts, dehumidifies it, and sends dry air back into your rooms. Two 8-inch duct collars are included for ducting air return and supply. The 1770A can also be used as a standalone dehumidifier to control humidity in a specific area. For example, you might install it in your humid crawl space or musty basement with or without ducting.
You can also configure the dehumidifier to treat your whole home and then switch to spot dehumidification for areas that need extra humidity control, such as your basement. For this application, you'll need to use the basement kit (sold separately).
*For proper installation, it's best to consult with a qualified HVAC technician.
Easy Humidity Control
Take the guesswork out of controlling your home's humidity. The Aprilaire 1770A automatically maintains your set humidity level in true "set it and forget it" fashion. To set it up, program your desired humidity level using the manual dehumidistat. Periodically, the dehumidifier's humidistat samples the humidity level in your home and adjusts dehumidifying speed to maintain that level. This frees you from the hassle of manually adjusting operation based on your own humidity measurements.
Air Cycling - This setting uses your HVAC blower to cycle air throughout your home for balanced humidity.
MERV-8 Air Filter – This easy-to-access, washable air filter removes allergens such as mold spores and dust particles while ensuring efficient operation.
Auto Defrost Control – In cool conditions, an automatic defroster turns off the compressor and runs the blower until the coils are defrosted to protect the unit from damage.
No Water Tank - The Aprilaire 1770A features a drain port to gravity drain collected condensate (drain hose not included). This eliminates the often messy task of emptying a water container.
Leveling Feet - Four stabilizing rubber feet are included to ensure proper drainage of the dehumidifier.
Ventilation Option - An optional backflow damper can be used to cycle fresh air into your home for more ventilation.
American-Made - All Aprilaire dehumidifiers are proudly made in the USA.

Low Maintenance - Wash the filter and clean debris from the drain port and hose once a year to ensure proper operation.
Things to Consider
Drain Location - For gravity drainage, you'll need a nearby drain and vinyl or PVC drain tubing (0.75-inch diameter). If there is no nearby drain, consider using an external condensate pump to pump water to a more ideal location.
