For most homeowners, the cost of heating and cooling is their #1 ongoing expense. As such, it's often the first place to consider when looking to save money.
Aprilaire thermostats can save energy through the use of convenient set-back programming. Controlling humidity levels in your home can allow you to feel comfortable while you use your heating and cooling system less often. And controlling air purity can help keep your heating and cooling equipment running at top efficiency. And did you know that you can zone your home to direct the proper heating and cooling to specific areas and can limit heating and cooling in areas where and when it's not needed?
You Must Address Indoor Air Quality to Build a Green Home
Advancements in building technology, while good for saving energy and money, have led to an increase in poor indoor air quality—houses don't breathe like they used to. This is why every green certification program, whether local or national, not only addresses energy efficiency but also health and sustainability.
Aprilaire's whole-home indoor air quality solutions are designed to work together to use energy as efficiently as possible. At the same time, they help you achieve the comfort, health and home sustainability benefits you need.
Controlling all aspects of indoor air quality helps qualify your home for the Green-Built Certification Program of the National Association of Home Builders:
