Home Ventilation for Health

Mechanical Ventilation at Home

Airborne viruses are transmitted through tiny droplets called aerosols. When someone sneezes, talks, coughs, and even breathes, thousands of tiny aerosols are released into the air. 

Mechanical ventilation at home with an Aprilaire fresh air ventilator brings in filtered air from the outside while also pushing out indoor air to help dilute airborne viruses to reduce the proliferation of airborne viruses. According to a Nature article, bringing up mechanical ventilation at home to the recommended amount “had the same mitigating effect as a vaccination coverage of 50% to 60%.”

Mechanical ventilation at home has other positive impacts on your indoor environment too like reducing odors, allergens, and volatile organic compounds. It can also help balance your home’s humidity for other benefits. 

Reducing contaminants in your air will also keep your HVAC system running more efficiently and for longer. 

How Aprilaire Can Help With Mechanical Ventilation
