Having a properly functioning whole-home ventilation system is critical to maintaining a healthy home environment. Fresh air is not only clean and refreshing but ventilation also helps dilute and remove contaminants.
Homeowners should use a ventilation system to bring in fresh air from the outside to dilute stagnant indoor air. The air inside the home can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside.
Proper filtration of both the air in your home and incoming ventilation air is key to removing particulates from the air.
According to the United States National Library of Medicine of the National Institutes of Health, the coronavirus nominally has a particle size of 0.13 microns and most airborne viruses range from 0.03 to 0.3 microns.
Aprilaire MERV 16 Allergy & Asthma Filters provide the highest rate of effectiveness. They can capture up to 96%* of airborne particles the size of viruses.
Includes patented Aprilaire Self-Seal Technology which minimizes the amount of air bypassing the filter.
Proper Humidity reduces the transmission of viruses.
ASHRAE promotes keeping humidity between 30-60% to minimize virus survival rates.
