How to Have Healthy, Clean Air in Your Home

By December 22, 2021No Comments

Winter is a time when many of us will spend more time indoors than any other time of year. That’s why it is so important to make sure that the air in your home is safe and healthy for you and your family.

Indoor air is 5x more polluted than outdoor air.

Many things can affect the air quality in your home. According to the EPA, the biggest contributors to poor indoor air quality are:

  • Contaminated outdoor air
  • Emissions from nearby sources
  • Soil gas
  • Moisture or standing water that promotes excess microbial growth
  • HVAC equipment
  • Emissions from non-HVAC equipment
  • Human activities
  • Building components and furnishings

The ongoing pandemic has shed a spotlight on the importance of our indoor air quality as it relates to our health and wellness. What if there was a way that you could ensure that your home’s air was free of airborne allergens and even virus-carrying particles and bacteria?

Having peace of mind that your home has the tools to keep you and your family healthy is priceless. Luckily for you, our friends at Aprilaire make having a healthy home, easy.

How to Protect Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

To ensure your home’s air is healthy and good for you and your family, invest in a whole-home, award-winning solution: An Aprilaire Healthy Air System™. Each component of the Healthy Air System™ is crucial to making sure you and your family stay protected from any airborne contaminants that may make their way into your home.

The Aprilaire Healthy Air System™ is a comprehensive, all-in-one solution that will create a healthy home environment in these 3 key areas:

  1. Fresh Air Ventilation: Fresh air ventilation removes stale, stagnant air in your home and replaces it with fresh air from the outdoors.
  2. Air Filtration: Air filtration works with your HVAC system to remove harmful particles like dust mites, pet dander, pollen, and mold spores from circulating in your home.
  3. Humidity Control: The ideal humidity level is between 40% and 60% for optimal health and comfort.


Today’s homes are built tighter than ever, so it’s hard for your home to inhale good air and exhale bad air without a little help. We spend 90% of our lives indoors, so why not make sure that the air we are breathing most of our lives is clean and good for us?

Aprilaire Fresh Air Ventilators help:

  • Remove pollutants by diluting them. Bringing in fresh air from the outside helps dilute airborne contaminants like allergens, chemicals, viruses and bacteria, and even radon.
  • Save energy by bringing in outdoor air when it’s just right. Aprilaire ventilation systems are designed with temperature and humidity sensors that determine when is the best time to bring in fresh air from the outside which helps reduce energy usage.
  • Reduce humidity by facilitating indoor air movement. Ventilation helps push out trapped humid air outside to help improve indoor comfort and health.
