4 minute read

Achieving a Healthy Home environment should be a top priority for families, homebuyers, home builders, and the like.

All About Our Healthy Home Solutions

Fresh Air Ventilation
Our indoor air can be five times more polluted than the air outside. So, in order to stay well at home, it’s important to make Indoor Air Quality a top priority. Let dirty air out of your home and bring fresh, clean air in with AprilAire Whole-House Fresh Air Ventilation. It helps dilute and remove contaminants—like airborne viruses, mold spores, allergens, and more—so you can breathe easy at home.

Air Filtration
Now it’s time to purify the air inside your home! With AprilAire Whole-House Air Filtration, including an AprilAire Whole-House Air Purifier and MERV 16 Air Filter, you can decrease airborne contaminants in your home and minimize your family’s risk of allergy symptoms, asthma triggers, and long-term respiratory irritants.

Designed to capture airborne particulates the size of viruses and reduce other contaminants from lingering in your home’s air, air filtration is crucial to keeping your family healthy year-round and protected from seasonal allergy triggers and viruses.

Humidity Control
Keeping your home’s humidity between 40% and 60%1 can minimize virus survival rates in addition to helping keep your home protected from the impact of dry or moisture-riddled air. Depending on which you’re looking to combat—dry or moist air—there’s a tailored solution available to help you keep your home healthy!

AprilAire Whole-House Dehumidifiers are for use during the more humid months of the year, as they help protect your house from the dangers of high humidity by stifling mold growth, decreasing allergens such as dust mites, and preserving your home overall.

On the other hand, AprilAire Whole-House Humidifiers are for combating dry air, as they can not only help keep your home feeling warmer but also help lower the survival rates of virus-sized particles that may linger in your air during the colder seasons.

Radon Control
Did you know radon is the #1 cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer nationwide? In fact, it’s estimated that one in every 15 homes have elevated radon levels—yet, only a fraction of people regularly test for radon outside of buying or selling their homes.

Temperature and IAQ Control
AprilAire Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostats are the key to year-round comfort in all rooms. Achieve peak comfort throughout your whole home with AprilAire Thermostats and our Healthy Air App to keep your Healthy Home feeling as comfortable as it looks.

AprilAire Thermostats also make it convenient for you to control and monitor your home’s air quality, benefitting your health and comfort. AprilAire Humidifiers, Dehumidifiers, Air Purifiers, and Ventilation products can be controlled from your thermostat (IAQ models only).

UVC Sanitization
When you add an AprilAire UVC Coil Cleaner to your HVAC system, you can kill up to 99.9%2 of mold that can build up on your system’s coil and protect from the harmful effects of mold. Keep your system running at top efficiency to save money and prevent the coil from becoming a source of bad air quality.

Healthy Home Dos & Don’ts

For an optimal Healthy Home environment, be sure to keep these important factors in mind as the AprilAire Healthy Air System® helps protect your Indoor Air Quality!

DO: Ensure gas, propane, and wood smoke ventilate outdoors
Minimize the source of indoor air pollutants in your home. Forcing these pollutants to ventilate outdoors provides greater Indoor Air Quality for you and your family.

DON’T: Forget to install carbon monoxide and smoke detectors in your home
While AprilAire Whole-House Fresh Air Ventilation will help you maintain a Healthy Home, it’s good to take the necessary precautions and ensure you’re alerted in an emergency situation.

DO: Use Wi-Fi to take control of your home, whenever, wherever
Being able to control your AprilAire Healthy Air System® from your smartphone makes it easier to take control of your Indoor Air Quality whether at home or on the go.

DON’T: Forget regular air purifier maintenance
Help your AprilAire Whole-House Air Purifier perform at its peak. To help promote better Indoor Air Quality, we recommend replacing AprilAire Air Filters every 6–12 months depending on your model. Not sure which air filter you need? All compatible filters are listed on the inside of your AprilAire Air Purifier cabinet door. Vacuum and dust often, minimize indoor smoke and candle use, and maximize airflow.

DO: Be mindful of your regional humidity
In addition to seasonal humidity, it’s also important to consider your location. A home in Arizona is likely to be drier throughout the year than a home in Florida. Different regions have different household humidity needs! Your local Healthy Air Professional will be able to address your home’s specific needs.

DON’T: Forget to clean or replace your dehumidifier filter or humidifier water panel
AprilAire Whole-House Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers come with specialized filters or water panels that help create a clean, breathable air in your home. Dirty filters or water panels contribute dirty air to homes and need to be cleaned or replaced. Check your owner’s manual for recommended replacement schedules.
