Improving Indoor Air Quality


Most people spend over 80% of their time indoors, improving Indoor Air Quality is crucial for our health and well-being. Indoor Air Quality has become one of today’s leading health concerns. The outside environment, ventilation systems, construction materials, furniture, carpeting, paints, and cleaning solutions are a few of the many factors that contribute to the quality of indoor air.

Ventilation systems have been cited as a prime contributor to Sick Building Syndrome. This can be due to poor design, improper maintenance, or incorrect operation. It may even be as simple as a change from the initial home or office layout, which can affect system efficiency.

It is important to distinguish between Sick Building Syndrome and Building Related Illnesses:

  • Building Related Illnesses are identifiable, and can be attributed directly to specific airborne contaminants, such as Legionnaire’s Disease
  • Sick Building Syndrome is used to describe a situation in which those spending extended time in a building, such as daily employment, report or experience acute on-site discomfort

Providing better indoor air quality is everyone’s responsibility. There are many factors that we can control to help provide better indoor air quality and a healthier building:

  • Building and renovating with Green Products
  • Eliminating harmful chemicals used for everyday cleaning
  • Incorporating proper ventilation methods
  • Installing an air purification system

3 Components of Poor Indoor Air Quality

  • Particulates – Very small solid or liquid substances, such as organic or non-organic compounds and dormant / living organisms, that are light enough to float in air
  • Microbial – This category represents germs, viruses, and bacteria. These small organisms can only be seen through a microscope, and are present in every environment.
  • Chemical (Gaseous) – Hundreds of gaseous pollutants, covering all combustion gasses and organic chemicals (VOC’s), have been detected in indoor environments. Health effects vary widely and depend on the types, concentrations, frequency and duration of exposure.
Air Box 3 Stealth Edition 1200 CFM 8" Flanges Charcoal Inline Filter

Air Box premium commercial-grade filters offer the most advanced system for improving indoor air quality

Air Box circulates clean, healthy fresh air. Replaceable activated carbon filters destroys odors, capture organic and non-organic contaminants and scrub pathogens from the air. Replaceable high-flow carbon filters are made from exclusive 100% premium activated charcoal.

Activated carbon granules are an “absorbent” with well-developed pore structures allowing for a full range of absorbent retention. The high hardness number allows for minimal granular breakage and the kindling point of this activated carbon is usually high. This activated carbon is particularly well suited for removal of airborne particles, neutralize odors, and chemicals, and eliminate germs, viruses, and bacteria.

Air Box Jr. Intake (HEPA)
Air Box Jr. (HEPA) eliminates 98% of all airborne particles down to 0.3 microns using the MERV 13 filter. 

For residential, commercial and industrial environments.
