Products that earn ENERGY STAR ratings are independently certified to save energy, save money, and protect the climate.

About the 1870
The 1870 whole-home dehumidifier can dehumidify a home up 7,200 square feet, removing up to 130 pounds of moisture per day. All Aprilaire dehumidifiers are backed with a five-year warranty, have no messy water trays to empty and come equipped with a washable MERV 8 filter.
Our dehumidifiers are ready to remove humidity from daily activities and other excess moisture trapped inside your home. For example, you add 25 pounds of moisture to your home’s air through showering, laundry, and washing the dishes.
Humidity control is important for protecting both your family’s and your home’s health. Excess moisture warps and damages woodwork, floors, and fine furnishings. High humidity is also the perfect breeding ground for many airborne contaminants and annoyances. These include termites, mold, mildew, and other allergy triggers.
Aprilaire follows the recommendations of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air – Conditioning Engineers which suggests keeping your home’s relative humidity between 30-60 percent to best prevent airborne viruses, mold, mildew, and other contaminants.
Healthy Air System
The 1870 dehumidifier is also an integral component of the Aprilaire Healthy Air SystemTM – a multi-faceted approach to effective protection from airborne viruses like the common cold, flu, and COVID-19.
