Aprilaire Whole-House Steam Humidifier

Aprilaire has a rich tradition of industry firsts, which has changed the face of health and comfort in the home. Our new whole-house steam humidifier continues that tradition.

Aprilaire, makers of indoor air quality products and a division of Madison manufacturer Research Products Corporation, was recognized for excellence in product design in the 8th annual Dealer Design Awards program. The Aprilaire Steam Humidifier earned a Gold Award in the Indoor Air Quality category.

The annual industry awards, presented by The Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration NEWS, included 127 entries from more than 80 different brands. An independent panel of HVAC contractors reviewed the entries, awarding gold, silver and bronze winners across 13 categories. The panel evaluated entries based on top priorities for contractors – from ease of installation to service and maintenance features.

“We’re thrilled that a panel of contractors selected the Aprilaire Steam Humidifier to receive the top prize for Indoor Air Quality,” said Mike Rimrodt, director of marketing at Aprilaire. “They’re the experts. It means a lot to have been chosen by them.”

The Aprilaire Whole-House Steam Humidifier uses technology that was previously only available in commercial applications, before being introduced by Aprilaire.

“With this new technology, the convenience and efficiency of automatic, whole-house humidification is now possible for residential homeowners,” Rimrodt said. “It’s a great addition to our tried-and-true evaporative humidifiers, which we continue to manufacture here in Wisconsin, as we have for more than 70 years.”

“One of our core values as a company is to foster and reward innovation,” said Mike McGowan, president of Aprilaire. “Aprilaire has a rich tradition of industry firsts, which has changed the face of health and comfort in the home. Our new whole-house steam humidifier continues that tradition.”
