Why Aprilaire Whole-Home Humidifiers?
Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifiers were introduced in 1954 as the first evaporative, flow-through design humidifiers. That’s right—we invented the very first, truly effective, whole-home humidifier. Since then, Aprilaire Humidifiers have been imitated—but never duplicated—and continue to lead the way in whole-house humidification systems. And only Aprilaire offers fully Automatic Digital Humidifier Control to monitor outdoor temperature and indoor humidity levels while providing convenient troubleshooting and maintenance reminders.
Every Aprilaire product provides these important key benefits for your family and home.
An Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier can reduce the chance of upper respiratory problems. “Humidity reduces the incidence of respiratory infections and speeds recovery from the common cold.”—William J. Hitschler, MD, Archives of Otolaryngology.
When the air in your home becomes too dry, your body is robbed of precious moisture, leaving you and your family with dry, itchy skin, and dry nose and throat symptoms. An Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier can help alleviate all of these uncomfortable symptoms and more.
Dry air pulls moisture from walls and hardwood floors which leads to damaging, unsightly cracks. Valuable furniture, artwork and electronics are also subject to the adverse effects of dry air. An Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier can help protect your home and its contents by supplying the correct amount of moisture to your home’s air.
Most homeowners turn up the thermostat because they feel cold. An Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier allows you to feel warmer at lower thermostat settings, saving up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat, according to the EPA.
How It Works
An Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier is installed directly to your central new or existing heating and cooling system. Humidity is introduced into your home’s air in the form of water vapor, which prevents minerals from entering the air in your home and potentially into your lungs. Water is supplied to the distribution tray, allowing it to flow evenly across the Aprilaire Water Panel®. The resulting humidified air is then distributed via your heating and cooling system ductwork throughout your home.
