  • Wall mount
  • Display and control humidity
  • Installation Manual

The Aprilaire Model 76 Dehumidifier Control provides control of the dehumidifier from the living space.
The control can be installed as an EXTERNAL CONTROL, allowing the homeowner to set and adjust the humidity setting and turn dehumidification on or off from a convenient location. In this application, the Model 76 uses an on-board sensor to monitor the relative humidity (%RH) in the space in which it is located and displays the measured relative humidity on the digital display.
The control can also be installed to function as a REMOTE CONTROL if the dehumidifier is located where it is not easy or convenient to access. The control can be installed in any location within the living space, with the dehumidifier installed in the area to be dehumidified, such as a crawl space, sealed attic, or basement. The dryness level is set on the control and communicated to the dehumidifier. The dehumidifier communicates the measured relative humidity in the space being dehumidified back to the Model 76 Control where it is displayed on the digital display.

    I do not like this Model 76 remote controller at all. I purchased this remote controller so that I could set the humidity level from my living space on the Aprilaire 1850 dehumidifier which is in the hard to get to crawlspace. Well when you install the Model 76 for this use, it DOES NOT allow you simply set the dehumidifier to your desired RH% (like say 50% RH). RATHER you have 7 different “dryness levels” that are supposed result in a +/- 5% range of RH%. What makes it additionally confusing & annoying is that you also have to factor in the temperature of the crawlspace. Take a hard look at Table #1 on page 14 of the installation instructions manual before you purchase Model 76. As crawlspace temp goes up the Model 76 tries to achieve a lower %RH (+/- 5%). Dehumidifiers give off a decent amount of heat raising the crawlspace temp. With this remote controller the dehumidifier never gets satisfied and runs continuously until you manually drop the dryness level on the Model 76.
