Model 5000 Electronic Air Cleaner

    Air in. Perfection out.

Study after study shows that as homes become tighter and more energy efficient, more contaminants become trapped inside. The air we breathe in our homes is loaded with pollutants like pollen, lung damaging dust, pet hair, dander, dust mites, tobacco smoke, spores, disease-causing bacteria and viruses. Considering the typical throwaway furnace filter only traps about 5 - 15% of these polluting particles and that the slightest traces of pollutants can trigger miserable reactions for allergy sufferers, you need serious help. In today’s world, a whole-house, high efficiency air cleaner is the best system to get the job done.

Aprilaire® High Efficiency Air Cleaners are the most efficient air cleaners you can buy. Whether you choose our technologically-advanced Electronic Air Cleaner or our proven Media Air Cleaner, Aprilaire offers features and benefits that are unsurpassed by any competitive product

Simply the best in air cleaning. Period.

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!

How do I get the cleanest air possible?

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.

MODEL 2200 & 2400     Media Air Cleaners - Aprilaire® (formerly Space-Gard®)

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.


For many years, we sold our media air cleaners under the Space-Gard brand name. Our Aprilaire brand of replacement media is the best to use for both Aprilaire and Space-Gard Media Air Cleaners.

Aprilaire Media Air Cleaner Benefits:

  • Never less than 99% efficient on pollen and spores.

The Aprilaire Automatic Humidifier Model 600 takes humidifier innovation to the next level and performs as good as it looks! It offers all of the performance benefits of our other technologically-advanced computer-equipped automatic humidifiers and it’s easier than ever to have installed because it includes a built-in bypass damper, which means fewer parts to install. Plus, the damper is conveniently labeled for summer and winter settings, allowing you to set it for the entire season with no guesswork involved. Just set it and let your humidifier run automatically and it will deliver up to 50% more humidity, compared to other competitive units on the market. It also can be installed in manual mode if needed. The Model 600 has an evaporative capacity of 0.70 gallons per hour and is ideal for a home with up to 4,000 square feet if it’s tightly constructed. We believe it’s the best performing bypass humidifier on the market!

UV Germicidal Lamps

Bright idea in air quality.

Bacteria, fungi and molds can find a welcome home in and around your air conditioner’s evaporator coil. That can lead to odors, illnesses and bothersome allergies. When properly installed near the air conditioning coil, the Aprilaire UV Germicidal Lamp kills the harmful growths and eliminates the odors associated with this growth. It’s a great solution for well being throughout your home.

Save money and protect your investment.

When your air conditioning evaporator coil is “clean,” it’s easier on the compressor.    That means greater efficiency and lower utility costs. The UV lamp eliminates biological growth so there’s much less wear and tear on your cooling compressor, extending the life of your air conditioning equipment.

Unbeatable combination.

Together, an Aprilaire UV Germicidal Lamp and an Aprilaire Air Cleaner provide great protection against harmful airborne particles. Part of the Aprilaire Indoor Air Comfort System, the UV Lamp and Air Cleaner provide a powerful one-two punch to protect you from dangerous and irritating particles in your home.

While the UV Lamp kills the living bacteria, molds and fungi particles on the air conditioning coil, the Air Cleaner permanently traps them along with other irritants in the air that affect your indoor air comfort. An Aprilaire Air Cleaner quietly removes particles that can cause allergies and illnesses while it protects and improves the performance of your heating/cooling equipment. Maintenance is easy, too!

The Aprilaire UV Germicidal Lamp can help if you suffer from:

  • Respiratory allergies
  • Asthma
  • Frequent cold and flu
  • Headaches
  • Runny nose
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Sore throat
  • Fatigue


Ventilation Control System

If you are a home builder, or are contracting to have your new home built, you should know about Aprilaire's new solution for ventilation. Our Ventilation Control System allows you to manage the quality of air, moderating the extremes of temperature and humidity allowed by other approaches. It will not ventilate if the outdoor temperature is above 100 degrees, below 0 degrees or if the relative humidity could rise above 55 percent. Plus, the system will ventilate only with a heat call when the outdoor temperature is between 0 and 20 degrees. Controls are automatic and independent, with cycle times ranging from one to four hours and ventilation time from zero to sixty minutes.

Aprilaire’s Ventilation Control System is a great product for today’s homes. Ventilation is code in a growing number of areas and it helps protect the homes you build.

Energy Recovery Ventilator

Essentially, the Aprilaire Energy Recovery Ventilator is an efficient, effective way to exchange stale inside air for fresh outside air. In winter months, the exclusive EnergyMax Transfer Core uses the heat of indoor air to warm up the incoming cold fresh air, recovering about 77% of the energy. In summer, warm fresh air passes near outgoing conditioned air, cooling it down. The beauty of the EnergyMax Transfer Core is its use of enthalpic technology. This technology enables the transfer of moisture as well as heat.

The popularity of the enthalpic-type ventilator has increased all over the country because of its superior ability to control humidity levels in both winter and summer. The result is greater indoor comfort at the lowest possible cost. Noise is also reduced, since you can enjoy fresh air without leaving windows open. Plus, a fresher, safer home is a home with greater value. While the ideal time to install Aprilaire is during construction, the Energy Recovery Ventilator can be added to any existing heating/cooling system.

Benefits of an Aprilaire Energy Recovery Ventilator:

  • Provides a constant, controlled supply of fresh air to your home year-round.
  • Reduces excess moisture content.
  • Reduces unhealthy indoor air pollutants, such as radon, formaldehyde, smoke, and odors.
  • Reduces air conditioning load by pre-cooling and removing excess moisture from incoming fresh air during the summer.
  • Handles up to a 3,600 sq. ft. home and conserves energy by effectively retaining the energy value from indoor air.
  • Helps produce a quiet, safe, secure, and healthy indoor environment.
