Residential and Commercial Environmental Solutions
One of the most serious problems facing homeowners is the quality of indoor air and the effects it has on our health. Aprilaire, one of our industry’s innovative leaders, offers intelligent whole-home solutions for these and many other indoor environmental challenges.
Aprilaire High Efficiency Air Cleaners (Model 5000)
The EPA reports that indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than the outside air. The very young, the very old and in particular, allergy sufferers are especially vulnerable. Considering we spend 90% of our lives indoors, installing an Aprilaire High Efficiency Air Cleaner is essential for a cleaner, healthier home. The installation of an air cleaner is just one-half of the perfect combination, however. To learn more, please read on…
Aprilaire UV Germicidal Lamp
An Aprilaire UV Germicidal Lamp is the other half to the perfect match in providing protection against harmful airborne particles. The dark, dank environment of an air conditioning coil is ideal for the growth of harmful bacteria, fungi and molds. Keeping the coil sanitary through cleaning can reduce the growth of these harmful microorganisms. Installing an Aprilaire UV Germicidal Lamp near the coil, however, kills the growth at the source. In fact, the U.S. Government requires UV lamps above cooling coils in government buildings. The unbeatable combination of both an Aprilaire High Efficiency Air Cleaner and Aprilaire UV Germicidal Lamp can provide optimum indoor air quality.
Aprilaire Automatic Whole-Home Dehumidifiers (Model 1700)
Excessive humidity in the home is our industry’s number one comfort complaint. Air conditioners, which are controlled by thermostats, are designed to control temperature. Thermostats do not sense indoor relative humidity. That cold, clammy feeling, especially at night, can occur on the hottest or most temperate of days. Even when the air conditioner isn’t running, a central whole-home dehumidifier is the only reliable way to control indoor humidity. Too much humidity can also be unhealthy as is provides a breeding ground for the growth of mold and mildew. Experts have identified ideal humidity levels; keeping your home within this range will limit humidity’s harmful and uncomfortable effects. Once again, Aprilaire is the leader – providing humidity control, comfort and indoor air quality throughout the entire home.
Aprilaire Automatic Humidifiers (Models 700-A, 600-A & 400-A)
Dry air causes more than discomfort. Low relative humidity causes dry noses, itchy skin and static shock. Dry air can also shrink your home’s wood framing creating wasteful energy gaps around doors and windows. Wood floors and trim can also crack and separate. To effectively minimize the threatening problems associated with dry air, it is essential to treat your home with a whole-home humidifier. Aprilaire’s Automatic Humidifiers is another intelligent solution engineered to meet your home’s needs.
