2 minute read

Increased Worry about Indoor Air Quality Spurred AprilAire’s 2021 Expansion Offering More Healthy Air Solutions Nationwide Including Air Purifiers, Dehumidifiers, Humidifiers, Filters, and Radon Testing and Mitigation

MADISON, Wis. (July 25, 2022) – AprilAire, the nationwide leader in professional-grade Healthy Air solutions for the home since 1954, experienced a significant increase in product queries and purchases since the pandemic and significantly expanded its manufacturing and distribution sites in 2021. Paired with a 2022 study that shows 74% of North Americans worry about indoor air quality (IAQ) and have “air quality anxiety,” the time is right to talk about healthy indoor air and how to get it with AprilAire’s residential solutions to improve the quality of air nationwide with air purifiers, dehumidifiers, humidifiers, air filters, and the AprilAire Healthy Air System®, which is a comprehensive, all-in-one offering. Earlier this year the company added radon testing and mitigation to its suite of healthy air products.

Air pollution is a big deal globally. Here in the states, a July 2022 study by Boston College’s Global Observatory on Planetary Health showed that pollution levels in Massachusetts were responsible for 2,780 deaths in 2019 alone. The Boston College research examines the far-reaching impact of pollution on public health in the state.

Americans spend 90% of their time inside but indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside, according to the EPA. A 2022 study commissioned by Ambius proves that people now care about indoor air. Overall, 74% of respondents felt anxious when entering indoor spaces with a perceived air quality problem, 70% believed their workspace needed air quality improvement, and 69% saw lack of investment in health and safety as an issue.
