Why an Aprilaire Whole House Air Purifier

Aprilaire Air Filter

Winter is right around the corner here in the Chicagoland area. And that means that your furnace needs to be in good working order and that can’t entirely happen if your filters are clogged or otherwise not working properly. Good thing there’s Aprilaire products that are highly recommended by our American Weathermakers technicians.

Now that our heating systems are turned on and warming up, let’s talk some numbers. People in the U.S. spend about 90% of their time inside, so the air they breathe should be healthy, clean and safe. However, the EPA has found that indoor air, a lot of times, is more polluted than outdoor air. The air inside your home is five times more polluted than outside air. Also, just one cubic foot of air can have more than 30 million air pollutants including dust, mold spores, allergens, and more. These irritants can trigger asthma and allergy symptoms.

Thankfully, there’s definitely something you can do about that! Read on.
