Indoor Air Quality

The media has been swarming us with information to make our home environments safe from harm. However, what is often left out is that indoor air we breathe can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. Our daily living produces a list of ongoing unhealthy pollutants that are in the air we breathe continually. Aerosols, sprays, pet hair, dander, woodstoves, solvents, insulations, household cleaning agents, second-hand smoke and lingering odors are just a few of the things in our human environment. 

HEPA

High Efficiency Particulate Air

Filters meeting the HEPA standard have many applications, including use in medical facilities, automobiles, aircraft, and homes. The filter must satisfy certain standards of efficiency such as those set by the United States Department of Energy (DOE). To qualify as HEPA by government standards, an air filter must remove 99.97% of all particles greater than 0.3 micrometer from the air that passes through.
