A review from a happy customer

My central air went out during this heatwave ugh! Thank my lucky stars I found John at SoCal HVAC Specialist Heating & Air Conditioning. Called this afternoon & he got back to me immediately.  He came by and within minutes had fixed the issue...blown fuse. I would highly recommend John and his company. Great service, efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. He will be my go-to guy for any future air conditioning work!

Heat pump installation

Heat Pump Installations

Reduce dangerous fossil fuels and harmful emissions while also diminishing your energy costs. With improved technology today, you can enjoy the cost savings and environmental benefits that heat pumps offer, even on the coldest nights. This outdoor system is like an air conditioner, but it also has a built-in heating system. A heat pump can turn cold air into hot air during the winter and make hot air cold during the summer. It does this by redistributing the heat in the air and heating it or cooling it with refrigerant as needed.

Compared to other electric heating systems, like furnaces and space heaters, a heat pump can save you approximately 50% in electric costs. Take advantage of this technology and start saving now.

iwave Air Purifier

Aprilaire 2000 Whole House Air Cleaners

Air purifier
Choose from 3 models in the 2000 Series. Each model fits a different duct size. All models will purify your entire home at MERV-13 efficiency when operating at the recommended airflow rate of 2,000 cubic feet per minute (CFM). This means each system removes 90% of pollen/mold spores measuring 0.3 to 10 microns, 90% of dust particles measuring 1 to 3 microns, and 76% of virus-size particles measuring 0.3 to 1 micron. 

How They Operate

Aprilaire 2000 Whole House Air Cleaners are ducted air cleaners installed on or near your furnace or air handler and remain out of sight. As your HVAC system heats, cools or circulates the air, the electrostatically charged filter removes airborne allergens and particles simultaneously. Clean, conditioned air is then redistributed throughout your entire home using your supply ductwork. Aprilaire whole-house air cleaners must be installed by a qualified HVAC professional both to ensure proper installation.

Breathe clean, allergen-free air in every room of your home using one easy solution; an Aprilaire 2000 Series MERV 13 Whole House Air Cleaner. These ducted air purifiers work in conjunction with your home's heating, ventilating, and cooling system (HVAC) to filter allergens out of the air and improve your home's indoor air quality overall. MERV-13-level filtration means that at least 90% of all microscopic impurities lingering in your space are locked away. Remarkably clean and allergy-friendly air is then distributed throughout all the rooms of your home.

Aprilaire 2000 Air Cleaners are available in 3 duct sizes, use ten times more filtration media than standard 1-inch furnace filters, and require minimal upkeep.

Help Prolong the Life of Your HVAC System

Whole-home air cleaners also help protect and prolong the life of your HVAC system. Using a 2000 Series model regularly reduces the amount of dust that accumulates in the HVAC blower compartment and the AC coil. This protects your system from damaging debris, maximizes its lifespan, and even saves energy.

Additional Features

  • Long-Lasting Filter: With typical use, the air cleaner filter lasts an entire year, saving you money on costly filter replacements. Keep in mind that the frequency of filter replacements varies based on factors like pollution level in your home, the number of people in your home, the size of your home, and the amount of carpeting in your home, among other factors.
  • SelfSeal Filter Media: A tight seal around the filter compartment, prevents unfiltered air from bypassing the filter.
  • Totally Silent Operation: The system runs silently alongside your HVAC system. No loud fans!
  • Once-A-Year Maintenance: Recommended maintenance on this unit takes less than 20 minutes once per year.
  • Keeps Your Home Cleaner: Using a whole house air cleaner means you’ll dust less and your home will be cleaner and more comfortable.
  • 10-Year Clean-Coil Guarantee: Aprilaire offers a 10-Year Clean Coil Guarantee with the purchase of this system. After installation of your air cleaner, if your AC coil needs servicing within 10 years, Aprilaire will contribute $100 toward the cost of cleaning.
  • Made in the USA: Aprilaire 2000 Series Air Cleaners are proudly made in the USA with quality components and expert craftsmanship.


Aprilaire 2000 Series Whole House Air Cleaners create cleaner, allergen-free air that is distributed throughout your entire home, helping your family breathe healthier and experience less allergy symptoms.

What Customers Love

  • Helps You Breathe Easier: This system removes harmful allergens, chemical fumes, and other impurities that pollute the air your breathe.
  • Saves Space: A tight seal around the filter compartment, prevents unfiltered air from bypassing the filter.
  • Works Independently: The system can be configured to run independently of your HVAC system unlike some conventional whole house air purifiers.
  • Best Option for  Allergies: Within Aprilaire's product line, Aprilaire 2000 MERV 13 Air Cleaners are great choices if you have  allergies.
