Aprilaire Air Cleaners
Clean air has never been easier.
The Aprilaire® Media Air Cleaner (formerly Space-Gard®) is a silent, low-maintenance, inexpensive air filtration system. It utilizes a simple, remarkably effective HEPA-type filtering media that actually improves its particulate-capturing capability the longer it is used. For particles larger than five microns, efficiency reaches 99%. Even the smallest particles, as small as one micron, can be filtered out at 95% effectiveness. The high-density filter unit is attached to your existing heating or cooling system, where it captures pollutants from conditioned air before it is distributed to the rooms of your home.
Two models of Aprilaire Media Air Cleaners are available, depending on your furnace type. Both models provide the same superior performance. Since these models have no moving parts, they’re virtually maintenance free and come with a lifetime limited warranty. These units were formerly sold under the Space-Gard® name.
The Aprilaire Model 5000 Electronic Air Cleaner's performance exceeds all other whole-house air cleaners on the market today. Its breakthrough technology delivers record-setting performance. Even trapping particles as small as a virus at an efficiency of 80%. Unlike standard plate-type electronic air cleaners that lose efficiency over time and require regular maintenance, the Aprilaire Electronic Air Cleaner's special electronically enhanced media permanently traps particulate, so you get the efficiency you expect all the time. And the special Aprilaire media only needs to be changed once a year. Maintenance is simple!
Through the marvels of advanced technology, of course. Particles entering the air cleaner pass through a control electrode, which focuses and intensifies an electrical field generated by the ionizing wires. The particles are charged in the electrical field and then collected on grounded micro-fiber media.
