Aprilaire Fresh Air Ventilator - Model 8142/8142NC

The Aprilaire 8142/8142NC Fresh Air Ventilator with Backdraft Damper (No Filter) is designed to bring in precisely the right amount of outdoor air into today’s efficiently designed homes. The installation of our ventilators integrates perfectly into new building construction.

The 8142/8142NC helps dilute airborne pollutants in your family's home. Today's newly constructed residential units are built tightly. This is great for energy efficiency but airborne pollutants and moisture get trapped inside. Our ventilator delivers fresh air into your home to reduce these airborne toxins including Volatile Organic Compounds, airborne viruses, and bacteria.

This system also reduces moisture in your home that can damage and warp wooden furnishings. Lastly, the ventilator will help reduce odors in your home from cooking and pets.
