Aprilaire 1310 Design and Size

Quick comparison for design of Aprilaire 1310 with models 1210, 1410, 1610 and 1910.

Depth (inches) 22 27.4 30 30 22
Weight (lbs) 15 18 17 22 18

The Aprilaire 1310 isn’t so much different with the Aprilaire 1210, and in fact, it uses the 20 x 20 air filter, compared with 20 x 25 filter from Model 1210. For the dimensions, the Aprilaire 1310 is only 20.4 inches in height, and 22 inches in depth (the depth is similar to the original 1110 model).

It is also shorter than the Aprilaire 1910, while costs $10 higher than the latter product. For the weight, Aprilaire 1310 is the second-lightest in the whole 1000 series, with only 15 lbs.

Aprilaire 1310, just like the rest of the family, uses heavy gauge galvanized steel to resist corrosion. Together with the proprietary door design, it can deliver the MERV performance as rated. Changing the air filter is simple, just remove the inlet opening first and put the filter out.

Aprilaire 1310 Filters

The Apriliare 1310, just like any others in Whole House Air Cleaner series of Aprilaire will use only one air filter.

  1. HEPA filter – Just like other HVAC system’s filter, Aprilaire 1310 will use the MERV-11 air filter, which can remove 94% of pollen and mold, 72% of airborne bacteria and fungi, 56% of all dust particles.

To maximize the life time of your heating and cooling equipment, the Aprilaire 1310 will prevent the dust build up, by trapping any allergens inside the MERV-11 filter.

While using the air filter with nearly the same size, the Aprilaire 1310 has more positive static pressures on air flow, resulting in higher actual air flow. The difference is small at 200 – 600 cfm, but changes drastically at stronger air flow, at maximum 1200 cfm.

You need to replace the air filter annually for optimal performance, due to its high air flow volume into the air cleaner. The 310 air filter costs $52, and I recommend you to get the 313 air filter with only $59, for MERV-13 rating.

  310 313
Cost $52 $59
Type MERV-11 MERV-13
Purification Basic air cleaning Allergen removal
Life time 1 year 1 year

Aprilaire 1310 can’t upgrade to have MERV-16 air filter like Aprilaire 1210 or Aprilaire 1410. If you have serious allergies, you should consider using other air purifiers.

Aprilaire 1310 Room Coverage

All air purifiers under the 1000 series, including of Aprilaire 1310, are able to work with the whole-home HVAC system, and can clean the room up to 2000 square feet easily.

The Aprilaire 1310 is not a common air purifier with fan power, so we can’t measure its ACH and CADR rating.

Aprilaire 1310 Sound

Without fan power, Aprilaire 1310 won’t produce any noise. And actually the Aprilaire 1210 will work in unison with your existing heating, ventilating, and cooling system (HVAC) to filter all contaminants in your air, so it’s far away from your living areas.

So to say, this isn’t even a selling point of Aprilaire 1310, and you should bypass this section at all.

Aprilaire 1310 Power Consumption

One of our most FAQs is “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” In fact, air purifier must be used for a long time to be efficient. And power consumption is one important criteria to review if this air purifier is good or not.

However, the Aprilaire 1310 is just a housing of one air filter. It doesn’t need the electricity, and you don’t need to check its power consumption.

Aprilaire 1310 Additional Features
