1. Reduce Profit-Robbing Callbacks

By putting an Aprilaire high-efficiency air cleaner on every system you install or service, you're ensuring that system against the problems that come with high-static, quick dust-loading 1" filters: frozen or dirty coils and inefficient equipment performance.
Don't let a 1" filter make call backs and lost profits a reality for you — do it right the first time with an Aprilaire air cleaner.


2. Low System Static

One-inch filters start out with high static pressure and only increase over time. Factor in an irregular replacement schedule and problems keep developing from there.

Aprilaire high-efficiency filters offer both low system static and low media velocity thanks to having NINE TIMES more surface area and deeper pleats than the average 1" filter

Low Velocity Reduces Resistance

Just like the higher velocity  created by holding back water flow from a hose, restrictive undersized filters add pressure to HVAC systems.

Aprilaire filters have more surface area to lower resistance and velocity for better air flow and increased system performance.


3. Longer Filter Life

Aprilaire filters have nine times more surface area than a 1" filter, extremely low initial resistance, and high dust holding capacity. This allows them to work for 12 months without being overly restrictive

— that's one filter change-out versus anywhere from 3 or 4 to TWELVE.

Having a long-lasting filter protecting your installs maintains proper airflow and reduces the likelihood for callbacks.

4. Traps More Particles

More filter surface area is the key. Not only does it reduce static pressure and increase filter life, but it also means that more particles will be trapped.

Filter Loading

The low amount of surface area on a 1" filter means that it fills up fast and raises a system's static pressure more quickly.

Check out the chart below to see how much better an Aprilaire MERV 11 or MERV 13 filter performs over a MERV 8 or MERV 11 1" filter.


5. Low Bypass

Aprilaire's Pure Fit Promise highlights our filters' Self-Seal Technology, Interlock Rail System, and Clean Coil Commitment. This lets homeowners know that the way we manufacture our filters keeps bypass air to a minimum. Not only does this improve their indoor air quality, but it also keeps their HVAC system cleaner for longer.


Aprilaire's patented Self-Seal Technology reduces bypass, improving filter performance and providing superior protection of homes and indoor air health


Aprilaire's Interlock Rail System creates a secure fit without extra cardboard or metal materials getting in the way. This also reduces bypass air and improves system efficiency and indoor air quality.


If a new indoor air conditioner coil requires a professional cleaning in the next 10 years, Aprilaire will pay $100 toward the cleaning. Learn More

6. Filter Choices That Meet Homeowners' Needs

Multiple filter options gives you the power to sell systems with air purifiers to more homeowners. While a cleaner and more efficient system is a strong sell all its own, providing a healthier or cleaner smelling home is what a customer is really looking for. Aprilaire's high-efficiency filters help you meet these specific needs by providing health and comfort.
