The Aprilaire Dehumidifier Selection Assistant

< 1 minute read

Here at Aprilaire, we are all about trying to make your life easier! Contractors are busy – especially this year with customers paying more attention to their homes’ indoor air quality. We started thinking about ways we could increase our support during your service calls. One idea that came to mind was to create something that makes it easier for you to choose the right dehumidifier for the job. 
 
Thus, the Aprilaire Dehumidifier Selection Assistant was born! This handy new online tool will help you and your customers work together to select the best dehumidification solution for their unique space.  
 

Choose the Right Dehumidifier

  
 
The Dehumidifier Selection Assistant begins by taking a look at coverage. What type of space are you working with? Whole-home? Basement? Crawlspace? The next step is to gather information about the home: location, desired relative humidity level, and more. Based on this information, the Dehumidifier Selection Assistant calculates a specific moisture load for the environment and provides information (number of units, unit capacity, and utilization) about the recommended dehumidifier models. The final step includes recording contractor and customer information on an online form that can then be easily viewed, printed, or e-mailed.  
 

Accessing the Tool

  
You can find the Dehumidifier Selection Assistant on aprilairepartners.com. If you are logged in, you will find it located under ‘Sizing Guides’. If you are not logged in, simply click on ‘Products’ from the main menu and choose ‘Dehumidifiers’. Then click on ‘Dehumidifier Calculator’ to access the selection assistant. So check it out. We hope this makes it that much easier for you to match your customers with a perfect humidity control solution!

A great article from Business Insider provides insight into how humidity and temperature impact the spread of coronavirus along with why proper humidification is especially important during the winter. It also includes a conversation about how an indoor relative humidity range of 40-60% *provides an overall benefit to our immune systems.

Please check out our Healthy Air System page for more information on solutions available from Aprilaire that are designed to provide simple and effective virus protection

 

New York Times – https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/18/world/asia/covid-cleaning.html

 

While many cities are implementing hourly cleanings for high-touch surfaces, very few are focusing on upgrading their HVAC equipment to mitigate the spread of the airborne virus. Make sure your team is aware of the tools provided by Aprilaire Partners to sell to homeowners including healthy humidity, fresh air ventilation, and air filtration.

Aprilaire Imprinted Air Cleaners – Helping You Keep Your Customers for Life

< 1 minute read

We’ve kicked off the Healthy Clean Air Campaign for Spring 2021 and we’re excited about all of the sales tools contractors and distributors can use to bring awareness to the benefits of ventilation and air cleaning. If you attended our kick-0ff webinar, you heard about all of these tools, as well as one of most popular and most effective offers — FREE air cleaner imprinting!

Since the dawn of HVAC marketing, one of the most effective tools for lead generation and customer retention has been adding your business’ sticker to every furnace or air handler you install. But all that is is just words on a sticker — maybe a small black and white logo, if you’re lucky.

When you sign up for Aprilaire Air Cleaner imprinting, you’re making your business known in a big way that you’re the one to call for all things Healthy Air — filter replacement, service, maintenance, etc. We take your business’ logo, create an artwork proof for you to approve, and then create a unique part number that you use to order your imprinted air cleaners every time.

And remember – there’s NO added cost per door for imprinting. It’s FREE. Simply place your order (see our online enrollment form for minimum order quantities) and we will ship your imprinted air cleaners to your warehouse or to your distributor of choice. Lead time is 15 business days after the order is processed.

Questions? Log in to or join Aprilaire Partners to contact your Aprilaire District Sales Manager or fill out our online Air Cleaner Imprinting Enrollment Form today. We’re looking forward to partnering with you to provide Healthy Clean Air and keep your customers for life.
