Aprilaire continues to demonstrate its world-class leadership in providing energy-efficient, high-performance indoor air quality solutions with the announcement of its Model 1870 Dehumidifiers being recognized as ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2020. With this certification, our 1870, 1870W, and 1872 models are the FIRST whole-home dehumidifiers to receive the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2020 designation.

Products that earn ENERGY STAR ratings are independently certified to save energy, save money, and protect the climate. According to the EPA, whole-home dehumidifiers that meet the higher criteria for ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2020 deliver 23% annual energy savings above the federal minimum.

As they transition production over to the new version, you will see the ENERGY STAR logo on the 1870 models’ cabinets and cartons. Please visit for more information and updated product literature.
