Healthy Home Blueprint: Promote Air Filtration Using Air Filters

2 minute read

Fact: Families regularly using air filters that are quality and properly fitted—and replace them regularly—are more likely to experience the life-changing benefits of Healthy Air in their Healthy Home! By prioritizing air filtration, you can protect your home and family from airborne viruses, allergens, and more that can contribute to long-term health concerns. 

The Benefits of Using Air Filters 

“Indoor air pollution causes an estimated 4.3 million premature deaths each year,” per With AprilAire Air Filters, you’ll experience a reduction of: 

  • Dust and Dust Mites 
  • Pollen 
  • Pet Dander 
  • Mold Spores  
  • Airborne Viruses 

Breaking Down the Two Types of Air Filters 

When you’re researching the right filters for your home and family, there are two acronyms you’re sure to come across—MERV and HEPA. These are different rating systems used to showcase how efficiently they filter particles from the air. 

What is a MERV Rating? 

MERV, which stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, is a rating commonly used when referencing AprilAire Whole-House Air Purifiers. With MERV-rated air filters, the higher the rating, the more efficient the air filter!  

What is a HEPA Rating? 

HEPA, which stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air Filter, is a rating commonly used when referencing AprilAire Room Air Purifiers and other portable units. HEPA air filters are designed to filter air at an exceptionally high standard, but shouldn’t be used with whole-house air filtration solutions as the increased static pressure created can damage your unit. 

Healthy Home Dos & Don’ts 

Foster a Healthy Home environment with these tips for using air filters! 

DO: Use an AprilAire Room Air Purifier with HEPA air filters 

Working hard to supplement your current air filtration solutions, AprilAire Room Air Purifiers offer HEPA air filters that fit all your family’s needs. 

DON’T: Buy air filters that aren’t genuine to your system’s manufacturer 

Generic air filters won’t work with your AprilAire Whole-House Air Purifier. Due to their improper fit, they can actually make your Indoor Air Quality worse off. But when you opt for genuine AprilAire Air Filters, our Pure Fit Promise guarantees that your filter will fit snugly, producing better, more efficient cleaning.  

DO: Replace your air filters as directed 

Replace your AprilAire Air Filter every 6 to 12 months and still experience protection from your worst allergy and asthma triggers and other airborne contaminants! 

DON’T: Forget about ventilation 

In addition to air filtration, AprilAire Whole-House Fresh Air Ventilation makes your indoor air less stagnant by allowing airborne contaminants to cycle through your Healthy Home and be captured by using air filters. Without it, dust can settle and impact your health long-term. 

DO: Find an AprilAire MERV-Rated Air Filter that fits your needs 

AprilAire MERV-Rated Air Filters each offer unique, tailored protection. As our partners at the American Lung Association recommend, we only offer filters rated MERV 11 or higher for use in our whole-house units. 

Final Thoughts 

To create the Healthy Home environment you desire, consider using air filters alongside your air filtration solutions. They are designed to help you target common airborne contaminants in your home’s air to better protect your family.
