I have to admit, when I started
working here at Aprilaire just over 10 months ago, I didn’t even know what a whole home air cleaner
was. Of course, I knew about that skinny
little filter in my furnace that you can literally watch the nightly news
through. You know what I’m talking about
that so called “air purifier” that is supposed to be changed every month—does
anybody actually change their furnace filter every month? I was also aware of portable air cleaners since
I had one sitting right in the middle of my living room. (In the interest of full-disclosure it
happened to be an Ionic Breeze.)
I think it was my second day here
at Aprilaire when we began training on the Aprilaire High Efficiency Air
Cleaner product line. That’s when I
realized that the 1” furnace filter connected to my HVAC system wasn’t worth its
weight in lead and my portable air purifier was really nothing more then a
false sense of security.
I remember saying to our corporate
trainer “This is a no-brainer. Everyone
needs to have a whole home air cleaner. I just wish I had known about them before now.” His response really hit home with me, he said “Being that your in marketing you have the opportunity to help others like yourself. You can educate people so they don’t have to live with poor indoor air quality.”
And that folks is the challenge
Aprilaire faces on a daily basis. How
can we let more people, who care about their family’s health, comfort, and
overall indoor air quality recognize that they need a high efficiency whole
home air cleaner–preferably an Aprilaire:-)
We know people are aware of the importance of clean indoor air, but they
just don’t know the best means to get there.
Aprilaire is doing everything we can to get the word out…we’ve even teamed up with doctors to communicate
the health benefits and importance of clean indoor air.
Thankfully for everyone, the
importance of Indoor Air Quality has gained more and more attention in recent
years. The Freedonia Group, Inc., a Cleveland-based industry
research firm, recently announced that due to consumers’
growing concerns over indoor air quality, demand for whole house air cleaners is expected to increase.
So if you’re looking for an easy
and inexpensive way to improve the health, comfort and sustainability of your
home look into an Aprilaire high efficiency whole home air cleaner. You can find an Aprilaire dealer in your area
