Core Benefits
Every Aprilaire product provides important key benefits for your family and home.


The air in your home is littered with virus-sized particles and bacteria, allergens, respirable dust and other airborne contaminants. An Aprilaire Whole-House Air Cleaner can help provide relief from these irritants — up to 40 times more efficiently than standard furnace filters.
Ever feel as if all you do is clean your home? Installing a whole-home air cleaning system by Aprilaire means you'll need to dust less, keeping your home and its contents cleaner and more comfortable.
Did you know that the build-up of dust and dirt can be damaging to your heating and cooling equipment contributing to increased and expensive maintenance or premature failure? A typical 1" furnace filter just can't provide enough protection. An Aprilaire Whole-House Air Cleaner helps ensure that your heating and cooling system lasts as long as possible.

Energy Savings
Build-up of dust, dirt, pet dander, hair and other substances on your heating and cooling equipment can reduce its efficiency by as much as 25%. An Aprilaire Whole-Home Air Cleaner can filter out these particles and help maintain the efficiency of your central heating and cooling system by enabling it to satisfy your needs quicker, using less energy.


The Perfect Questions to Ask
When selecting an air cleaner, many people consider the Minimum Efficiency Rating Value (MERV) — a system used by many manufacturers in their claims. Aprilaire Media Air Cleaners are rated MERV 10 at 1200 cfm (the typical airflow for an average home). But we suggest that you consider the following questions to determine the best air cleaner for you:

  • Is it a whole-home solution? It should clean the air in the entire house, not just a room or section of your home.
  • Is there long service life? Who enjoys changing the filter media every month or even every couple of months? The best air cleaner should require maintenance only once a year.
  • Will it enhance equipment life? The best air cleaner should permanently trap the dirt that causes heating and air-conditioning units to wear prematurely.
  • What about quality? The best air cleaner should be built to last, providing the same high performance for years. One mark of quality is the seal around the door. It should have broad, thick seals to minimize air leakage.
  • Is it invisible and silent? The best air cleaner should be invisible, not another piece of furniture in a room. It should operate silently, not make distracting noises.
