Aprilaire's ventilation systems help create healthy air in the home. By bringing in fresh air from the outside, we can dilute trapped airborne contaminants like allergens, chemicals, viruses and bacteria, and radon. Contaminants that can make you and your family ill. Ventilation systems also help push out trapped humid air outside to help improve indoor comfort and health.
Beyond comfort and health, our ventilation systems are also energy-efficient. Each ventilation system has temperature and humidity sensors to determine the best time to bring in fresh air from the outside reducing energy usage. In addition, the 8145 was recently awarded Most Efficient 2020 by ENERGY STAR® recognizing the product's innovation and energy-efficiency.
Fresh air ventilation systems are recommended by ASHRAE and required by California Energy Commission Title 24. All of Aprilaire's ventilation equipment meets the requirements of 2012, 2015, and 2018 International Residential Code and 2012, 2015, and 2018 International Energy Conservation Code. Ventilation is also considered an important tool in reducing airborne pollutants in indoor air by the National Center for Biotechnology Information of the National Institute of Health.
