More Facts – Air Quality Research

50,000 homes & businesses were tested over three years,

looking at the following indoor air quality issues:

Particle allergens (airborne particulate matter like dust, pollen, etc.)

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Carbon Dioxide,

Temperature, Humidity, Carbon Monoxide

Almost 97% of the tested homes & businesses had lAQ problems

Over 90% of those tested places showed particle levels higher than recommended

Allergies, asthma, other respiratory conditions aggravated by humidity

problems, dust, and VOCs found in most homes & business locations

Humidity too high or too low can be problematic for asthma sufferers
