Aprilaire can provide your family with whole-home indoor air quality solutions that can help remove asthma triggers, making your home more comfortable—and more healthy. Our whole-home humidifiers and dehumidifiers can help you maintain the perfect level of moisture—one in which dust mites are unable to survive.
And our air purifiers can trap up to 99% of airborne particles that pass through the filter. Such as pollen, mold and spore-sized particles, many of which can trigger asthma. Many of the particles that irritate asthma can also cause or aggravate other health conditions.
“Particles rated at PM 2.5 have been identified as the most significant indoor contaminant in terms of chronic health impacts in residences … Sources include combustion products, cooking, candles, outdoor air and more. PM 2.5 can be removed using MERV 10 filters and higher.” -American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Standards Committee Guidelines – June 17, 2015
