Consumer question:

I have a slight formeldahyde problem in a manufactured home it is 1700sq ft.  I had my air tested and it came back with a .12 ppm I am below government standards however I would like to reduce the level.  Would this 8100 ventilation system work for me and if so how long after installation should I wait to have my air retested?

Aprilaires’ response:

Our model 8100 moves 120 CFM. In an hour we can move 7200 CFH. Based on your home being 1700 sq. ft  the model 8100 will provide .50 air change per hour(based on 8 ft ceiling height). Formaldehyde off gases from a variety of products. Exactly how long it will take to exhaust the formaldehyde is difficult to answer. We suggest you run your model 8100 24/7 in an effort to reduce the formaldehyde as quickly as possible.
