Aprilaire did it again, with the next air purifier of the newer 2000 series. The Aprilaire 2310 is boxed with a MERV-13 air filter, designed to be better than old model 1310. Let’s compare both air cleaners in the latest Aprilaire 2310 Review.

Aprilaire 2310 Price
After the Aprilaire 2210, the American company quickly released the Aprilaire 2310, and make it as the latest version of the old Aprilaire 1310. The Aprilaire 2410 also follows its brothers to complete the 2000 series.
Under the original coat of steel, we will have a real MERV-13 air filter, which has taken place to confirm Aprilaire’s status as the best whole-home air cleaner. The overall performance is improved significantly.
Aprilaire 2310 will cost you $129, which is $20 higher than the predecessors from 1000 series. It serves directly as the Aprilaire 1310 with new air filter, but when the 313 filter is only $7 more expensive than the 310 filter, we will wonder whether the Aprilaire 2310 is worth the money.
You should look for the Honeywell F200 for alternative of Aprilaire 2310, which also has the MERV-13 air filter. However, Honeywell F200 can be quickly upgraded to Honeywell F300, while you need to buy the Aprilaire 5000 all by yourself.

|Aprilaire 2310||Aprilaire 1310||Aprilaire 2210||Aprilaire 2410|
Aprilaire 2310 remains the size from Aprilaire 1310, and comparing based on the height, it is the medium-size in 2000 series. Its height is 20.4 inches, while the depth is only 22 inches. For the weight, the Aprilaire 2310 is the most lightweight one, with only 15 lbs.
Aprilaire 2310 just uses the same 20 x 20 air filter like Model 1310. The UL classified cabinet is made of corrosion-resistant heavy gauge pre-painted steel. Moreover, the air cleaner has proprietary door design and Self-Seal technology to eliminate unfiltered air bypass, thus delivers MERV performance as rated.

Aprilaire 2310 Filters
With the power of MERV-13 air filter, the Aprilaire 2310 is indeed better than the original Aprilaire 1310 packing with only MERV-11 air filter. Below is the actual performance rating of the Aprilaire 2310.
- HEPA filter – Just like other HVAC system’s filter, Aprilaire 2310 will use the MERV-13 air filter, which can remove 98% of pollen and mold, 97% of airborne bacteria and fungi, 96% of pet dander and other dust. Moreover, it can filter out nearly 75% of tobacco smoke and smog.
We will give you a comparison table for both 310 and 313 air filters.
|0.3 – 1 microns||1 – 3 microns||3 – 10 microns|
|310 filter (MERV-11)||37%||67%||92%|
|313 filter (MERV-13)||63%||88%||93%|
Though the total efficiency for large dust is quite similar to the MERV-11 air filter, MERV-13 air filter has at least doubled the performance rating for trapping any particles as small as 0.3 microns. Such size is also the reason to cause serious allergies and asthma for you and your family.
Aprilaire 2310 can swap the air filter with the Aprilaire 1310, to get a simple media change. So to say, both air cleaner can have exactly same power if they store the same air filter inside. So to say, if you own a model 1310 in your home, you don’t need to buy the new cabinet.
You should change the filter annually, for Aprilaire 2310 to keep the best performance. The 310 filter costs $59, and you can choose the 310 air filter instead, with only $52.

Aprilaire 2310 Sound
Without fan power, Aprilaire 2310 won’t produce any noise. And actually the Aprilaire 2310 will work in unison with your existing heating, ventilating, and cooling system (HVAC) to filter all contaminants in your air, so no way you can see it in your living areas.
So to say, this isn’t even a selling point of Aprilaire 2310, and you should bypass this section at all.

Aprilaire 2310 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 2310 is just a cabinet of one air filter. It doesn’t need the electricity, and you don’t need to check its power consumption.

Aprilaire 2310 Additional Features
There aren’t any additional features in the Aprilaire 2310, just like the rest of Whole House Air Cleaners series in Aprilaire. The Aprilaire 2310 pack doesn’t include the thermostat, so you should shop for an individual one later.

Aprilaire grants you a 5-year warranty for any whole-home air cleaners, the warranty is on cabinet from the date of installation. Moreover, you are guaranteed by Clean Coil, to commit the professional cleaning in the next 10 years, at the cost of $100.
In case of Aprilaire 9550 series, the limited warranty is only effective for 1 year, and you don’t have the Clean Coil Guarantee.
Again, I don’t recommend buying the Aprilaire 2310, unless you really need the MERV-13 air filter immediately.
