I bought this air cleaner when we were replacing the furnaces
I bought this air cleaner when we were replacing the furnaces, and it appears to perform better than our old Honeywell unit. My son doesn't have asthma attacks anymore. We have not had any issues with it but in case we do, it came with a warranty. I also like the remote unit that comes with cleaner. Great product for the price.

Questions & Answers
Does it include the filter?
Yes the filter comes with this Unit
I have an electric up-flow furnace with the plenum on top. Can the Aprilaire 5000 be placed in a horizontal position and still operate in the same efficient manner? Since I live where refrigeration isn't necessary, can the unit be operated in the summer with just the blower on? Do you have an installation manual pdf that I could view?I'll watch for your reply.Thanks,Ron
The Aprilaire 500 can be mounted horizontally without effecting the function of the cleaner. These cleaners are connected to air handlers all the time, and are perfect for your described application. Below, I have attched a link to the PDF manual for your convenience.
