Madison-based AprilAire announced it has earned recognition as a Dane County Climate Champion in the Catalyst category. The award recognized the company’s whole-house dehumidifiers (models E080, E100, and E130) that were awarded the Energy Star Most Efficient 2022 certification, delivering 23% annual energy savings for homeowners compared to conventional units.

The Dane County Office of Energy and Climate Change recognized local entities leading climate action through the county’s Climate Champions program to help meet the goals outlined in Dane County’s Climate Action Plan. The plan commits Dane County to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 50% countywide by 2030 and puts the county on a path to be carbon-neutral by 2050.
