Air Quality – Air Purifiers, Fans, Ventilation

According to the EPA, we spend most of our time indoors. That’s why indoor air quality is important. We breathe that air and expose our skin to it.

Sadly, the quality of air indoors can be from 2 to 5 times lower than outdoors. To breathe fresh air indoors, we need to actively purify it.

Airborne pollutants include dust, smoke, pollen, dust mites, mold, mold spores, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), kitchen odors, and so on.

HVAC devices that reduce the concentration of indoor air pollutants are called air purifiers. In their most basic form, these are devices that push indoor air through a number of filters that capture the indoor air pollutants. The primary filters are HEPA filters, activated carbon filters, and pre-filters.

We categorize air purifiers based on the concern (against smoke, mold, room size, etc.) or by brand (Medify, Alen, Air Oasis, and so forth). For an in-depth understanding of air purifiers, you should check our all-in-one essential guide to air purifiers here.

Even more importantly, we include useful resources on topics of air purifier positioning, sizing, specifications (CADR, ACH), and many others.
