Aprilaire 5000 Electronic Air Cleaner
  • Aprilaire 5000 Electronic Air Cleaner

    The Aprilaire 5000 Whole House Air Cleaner helps you create cleaner, healthier air in all the rooms of your home. Did you know that your indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outdoors? Think about it. Every minute, outdoor air is infiltrating your home through joints and cracks in your walls, open doors, open windows, and other sources, bringing with it a variety of harmful pollutants.

    From allergens to dust to smoke—you and your family breathe these pollutants in and out on a daily basis. Prolonged exposure can aggravate your allergies, asthma, sinus conditions, respiratory ailments, and lead to other health issues. This problem is preventable. Keep everyone in your home safe from the effects of poor indoor air quality with the Aprilaire 5000 Electronic Air Cleaner.

    Clean the Air in Every Room of Your Home

    The Aprilaire Model 5000 Whole House Air Cleaner is a central air purifier that cleans the air throughout your entire home. Installed as part of your central heating and air conditioning system, the Model 5000 uses a combination of electrostatic technology and traditional air filters to remove 98% of airborne particles as small as 0.1 micron. These are particles measuring 100 times smaller than the width of a human hair, including:

    • Allergens such as pollen, dust, dust mites, mold, ragweed, and pet dander
    • Airborne bacteria, viruses, and germs
    • Smoke and other particle-based fumes


    With regular use, the Aprilaire 5000 Air Cleaner ensures a healthier breathing and living environment for you and your family. It can also increase the overall efficiency of your HVAC system, eliminate expensive and frequent maintenance, and stop premature system failure. Moreover, this high-efficiency whole house air purifier helps qualify your home for the National Home Builder Association's National Green Building Standard.

    How It Works

    The Aprilaire 5000 Electronic Air Cleaner installs on or near your furnace or air handler out of sight to remove airborne particles as air travels through your HVAC system. When air enters the air cleaner, airborne allergens and particles are charged in an electrical field and filtered out permanently by 72 square feet of high-efficiency microfiber filters. Working in unison with your HVAC system, clean, conditioned air is then distributed throughout your entire home through your supply ductwork. Under typical use, the Aprilaire 5000 cleans and changes the air in every room of your home more than 4 times per hour.

    Independent Air Cleaner Control Included

    Unlike conventional whole house air purifiers that only purify when your HVAC system runs, the Aprilaire Model 5000 can be configured to run independently of your heating and air conditioning system. The air cleaner includes an independent Air Cleaner Control that installs anywhere you choose. This control unit, similar in size to a thermostat, features a digital display with 4 air-cleaning options:

    • Constant Cleaning - Air cleaner cleans continuously day and night.
    • Automatic Cleaning - Air cleaner runs a minimum of 30 minutes every hour to minimize energy consumption while still purifying your air.
    • Event Clean - Air cleaner runs for 3 hours continuously then shuts off.
    • Allergy Clean - Air cleaner runs continuously for 24 hours then shuts off. Great for use during allergy season.

    The Air Cleaner Control also visually indicates when the air purifier is running and reminds you when it's time to change the filter.

    Boosts Efficiency of Your HVAC System

    Along with ridding your home's air of harmful allergens, particles, and smoke, the Aprilaire 5000 Whole House Air Cleaner helps boost the efficiency of your HVAC system. When installed, the air cleaner regularly protects the internal components of your system from dirt and dust build-up. If left untouched, dirt and dust contamination can contribute to expensive ongoing HVAC maintenance and even premature system failure. It can also reduce your system's efficiency by up to 25%, making it work harder to condition or heat your air and increasing your energy bills in the process. The Aprilaire Model 5000 helps extend the life of your HVAC system and keeps it running at peak efficiency.

    Additional Features

    • Completely Silent Operation - Installed out of sight, the Aprilaire 5000 runs silently alongside your air conditioning system.
    • Easy Infrequent Maintenance - Recommended maintenance takes less than 20 minutes once a year.
    • Long-Lasting Filter - Under typical use, the microfiber filter lasts an entire year, saving you money on costly filter replacements.
    • Filter Replacement Reminder - Reminds you when it's time to replace your filter and can be configured for more or less frequent reminders depending on how often the system cleans.
    • Keeps Your Home Cleaner - Using a whole house air cleaner means you'll dust less and your home will be cleaner and more comfortable.


    The Aprilaire 5000 Electronic Air Cleaner cleans the air throughout all the rooms of your home, eliminating 98% of allergens, smoke particles, and germs.
