Today's homes are tightly sealed, built with energy efficiency in mind. While this is good for keeping heated and cooled air from seeping out, it also keeps uncomfortable odors and harmful pollutants trapped in your home.

Iphone Fresh Air VentilationAprilaire can help you control fresh air and keep your family comfortable and safe with a whole-home ventilation system. Aprilaire whole-home ventilation solutions are installed as part of your home's heating and cooling system to expel stale, polluted air and replace it with fresh, clean air.

Why You Need a Proper Ventilation System

Without a proper ventilation system, every time your air conditioner or furnace runs, you circulate the same stale air throughout your home. This allows smelly odors from cooking, pets and other sources to linger. This is an uncomfortable nuisance, but it gets worse.

Air that's trapped in your home can also contain harmful, toxic chemicals that could be threatening the health of your family. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the concentration of pollutants can be up to 10 times greater inside your home than outside.

Common household contaminants found even in the best-kept homes include:

Aprilaire Ventilation vs. Natural Ventilation

Natural ventilation occurs when outside air enters through your open doors and windows. Natural ventilation isn't always feasible due to security risks and weather conditions. And it isn't always effective at bringing in enough fresh outdoor air or expelling enough polluted indoor air.

Aprilaire ventilation solutions are installed as part of your heating and cooling system to remove polluted indoor air and then distribute filtered and conditioned outdoor air throughout the house.

Aprilaire ventilation allows you to automatically control the freshness of your air year-round. You manage both the quantity and quality of air being brought into your home.

The Right Control of Fresh Air for Every Home

Aprilaire Ventilation Controls are designed to meet new home construction ventilation requirements*** and are calibrated based on the size of your home, climate and family size. Set up is handled by your professional for worry-free operation. You can also choose to ventilate based on events, such as cooking, entertaining or cleaning.

Our ventilation controller allows you to manually adjust the length of time your ventilation system runs, up to 60 minutes.
