As the world slowly recovers from the global COVID-19 pandemic, the air quality of our homes is something that’s become very important in the minds of many homeowners.
And one local company that has always had air quality top of mind is AprilAire. Back in 1954, AprilAire manufactured the first whole-house humidifier in Madison. This revolutionary innovation set the stage for the company’s focus on indoor air quality throughout its long-standing history.
By 2000, AprilAire’s whole-house indoor air quality products, including air purifiers, ventilation systems, thermostats, dehumidifiers and humidifiers, were found in homes all across the country. Recently, AprilAire added radon testing and mitigation services to its healthy air offerings.
“We tend to forget what is in the air that we breathe. The whole-house AprilAire Healthy Air System® is an all-in-one solution addressing all aspects of indoor air quality in the home,” says David Carlson, director of marketing at AprilAire.
“It provides fresh air ventilation, air filtration, humidity and zoning control, and radon mitigation. By taking all of these elements into consideration, homeowners can ensure a healthy home environment and year-round defense from contaminants like allergens, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, pet dander, dust and dust mites, pests, smog and radon.”
The experts at AprilAire also recognize that the concern about indoor air quality has been growing exponentially since the start of the pandemic in 2020.
“We know that health symptoms or a health diagnosis of a household member — like allergies or asthma, for example — and virus exposure risks are the primary drivers of this concern in recent years,” Carlson says.“And we know that the focus on the air we breathe isn’t going away.”
The AprilAire Healthy Air System® works in conjunction with a home’s current HVAC system to provide healthy air through the whole house.
As Carlson explains, the company’s nationwide network of AprilAire Healthy Air Professionals is available to evaluate a home’s current HVAC system and indoor air quality needs to determine the best customized Healthy Air System.
“We spend 90% of our lives indoors. With homes being built tighter than ever, it’s hard for your home to inhale good air and exhale bad air,” Carlson says.
“The AprilAire Healthy Air System® helps your home do just that, in addition to capturing airborne viruses, maintaining balanced humidity ideal for overall wellness, and protecting your family from dangerous levels of radon, which is the “ No. 1 cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers. You eat healthy food, drink filtered water, practice good hygiene, and put focus on getting enough sleep and exercise, but are you breathing healthy air?”
