Solutions for Every Climate Zone

Managing the quality of ventilated air delivered into the home is critical to providing a healthy indoor environment. Regional climate - as well as time of year - significantly impacts the quality of indoor air and creates different requirements for improving it. Aprilaire Ventilation works with the HVAC equipment to remove moisture, harmful particulates, and other contaminants, such as VOC’s. This ensures indoor air is fresher and is delivered economically and effectively. It’s critical to use adequate ventilation controls and application guidance to properly ventilate rather than simply pulling air through walls with local exhaust ventilation equipment. View our Ventilation Product Guide for more detailed information on ventilation solutions and climate considerations.


Balanced Ventilation Control

Aprilaire Ventilation control strategies manage ventilated air based on its temperature and relative humidity. In all applications, the air is delivered to ASHRAE Standards 62.2-2010 ventilation requirements and 2.8 CFM/watt fan efficacy.
