Fresh Air Ventilation

Having a properly functioning whole-home ventilation system is critical to maintaining a healthy home environment. Fresh air is not only clean and refreshing but ventilation also helps dilute and remove contaminants.

Homeowners should use a ventilation system to bring in fresh air from the outside to dilute stagnant indoor air. The air inside the home can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside.

Products such as the Aprilaire Model 8126X Ventilation System or Model 8140 Fresh Air Ventilator bring in the recommended amount of fresh air. They also have patented control logic to minimize energy usage. Coupling these systems with our IAQ thermostats allows homeowners to easily adjust the amount of fresh air being brought (into) their home.

Air Filtration

Proper filtration of both the air in your home and incoming ventilation air is key to removing particulates from the air. 

According to the United States National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health, the coronavirus nominally has a particle size of 0.13 microns and most airborne viruses range from 0.03 to 0.3 microns.

Aprilaire MERV 16 Allergy & Asthma Filters provide the highest rate of effectiveness. They can capture up to 96%* of airborne particles the size of viruses. Includes patented Aprilaire Self-Seal Technology which minimizes the amount of air bypassing the filter 

Humidity Control

Proper Humidity reduces the transmission of viruses. 

ASHRAE promotes keeping humidity between 30-60% to minimize virus survival rates. Aprilaire provides humidifier products such as the 600, 700, and 800 to help keep the home between this optimal range.

ASHRAE

We Support The Findings And Recommendation Of ASHRAE​

That the most effective way to prevent proliferation of airborne viruses is by installing a whole home Healthy Air System containing 3 elements:

  1. Air Cleaners with a high performance filter,
  2. Humidity Control
  3. Ventilation for fresh air.
