Help Prevent Airborne Viruses with a Healthy Air SystemTM

Show viruses like the flu and common cold the door with the help of Aprilaire whole-home indoor air quality solutions. While it's impossible to completely rid your home of all pollutants, Aprilaire can help you greatly minimize the threat these illnesses pose to your family.

Three ways to prevent viruses are to control humidity, control air purity, and control fresh air ventilation.

  1. Control humidity: Airborne viruses that cause cold and flu thrive in low humidity, and according to the American Society of Otolaryngology, dry air makes people more susceptible to infection. With that one-two punch, humidity control in your home is essential to reducing your chance of catching cold or flu viruses. Aprilaire allows you to control humidity with a whole-home humidifier that functions as part of your central heating and cooling system.

  2. Control ​the purity of your air: Particulate matter is a leading cause of poor air indoors—found in 85% of homes.* Only those air purifiers with the highest efficiency can consistently remove particles of the smallest size (0.3 – 1.0 microns)* Air Advice State of Our Indoor Air Report 2007

  3. Control air freshness: While today’s tightly sealed homes are great for conserving energy, they can also trap polluted air. Aprilaire whole-home ventilation systems pull fresh air into your home from the outside, while pushing stale, airborne virus-filled air out.
