Introducing the Aprilaire 501 replacement filter media (approximately 16” x 27” x 6”) for the Aprilaire model 5000 air cleaner. These filters ship like a collapsed accordion and are expanded into a plastic frame (NOT INCLUDED) within the air cleaner cabinet. The filter is installed within the plastic frame and held in place with your existing pleat spacers (NOT INCLUDED). Assembly instructions are printed on the product carton.

The Aprilaire 501 filter media is an excellent choice for high-efficiency air filtration at an affordable price. Patented, breakthrough technology provides air cleaning performance never before possible. The Aprilaire 501 is 94% efficient at removing disease-causing bacteria as small as 0.35 micron. The Aprilaire 501 even traps virus sized particles with an unsurpassed efficiency of 80%. Additionally, the Aprilaire 501 is over 99% efficient on containing pollen and spores, providing substantial allergy relief.

The manufacturer recommends that the Aprilaire 501 filter media be replaced 1-2 times per year. This Aprilaire 501 high efficiency filtering media is a direct replacement for the Aprilaire filter used in the Aprilaire 5000 air cleaner model.

For many years, the Aprilaire 501 filter in the model 5000 filter cabinet has been the gold standard in high-efficiency air filtration.
