The air inside your home or business can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outdoors. H.I.M. Mechanical now offers several products to improve your indoor air quality by reducing and filtering out odors and vapors, biological contaminants, and particulates.
Aprilaire Healthy Air System
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Aprilaire created a three-part Healthy Air System: fresh air ventilation, air filtration, and humidity control.
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. 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 Aprilaire’s IAQ thermostats allows you to easily adjust the amount of fresh air being brought into your home or business.
Proper filtration of both the inside air 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.
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 and the 1850 dehumidifier to help keep the home between this optimal range.
Fresh-Aire UV products protect your family, extend the life of your air system, and reduce energy and maintenance costs.
Our products clean the air throughout your home or business because they are installed directly inside your central air system. Microbes and odors are eliminated as air cycles repeatedly through the system.
