Aprilaire ventilation removes particles common in most homes to reduce mold, bacteria, pollen, harmful chemicals and other VOC's.
You can save energy through the use of Aprilaire thermostat’s convenient set-back programming.
In an effort to makes homes more energy efficient, building techniques have focused primarily on sealing up new homes. While that may save energy costs the ability of the home to ventilate fresh healthy air inwards and stale unhealthy air outwards has been severely limited. The EPA has found the air inside our homes is up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside our homes. A whole home ventilation system is more important than ever before. Homes can trap odors, volatile organic compounds like formaldehyde and benzene along with mold spores, mycotoxins, allergens, moisture and radon. These pollutants can cause respiratory infections, cardiovascular issues, and even cancer.
Fresh air ventilation systems dilute and replenish the stale dangerous air in your home. These fresh air ventilation systems are highly customizable, controllable and very affordable
Aprilaire’s powered ventilation systems use strictly supply ventilation which uses a mechanical fan to push fresh air into the home from a purpose determined spot. The air can them be filtered and regulated properly by sensing outside temperature and indoor humidity levels. Supply ventilation systems only need minor be annual maintenance.
Fresh air ventilation systems are recommended by ASHRAE and required by California Energy Commission Title 24. All of ventilation equipment meets the requirements of the 2012, 2015, and 2018 International Residential Code and the 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.
Ventilation can be used in conjunction with a Healthy Air System™ to reduce the proliferation of airborne viruses such as the flu and common cold.
