Fresh air is not the same as clean air

The air around us contains pollutants that are released naturally by nature and as a result of man-made processes. And although the manufacturing companies are good at filtering out the large particles, the small nanoparticles often escape along smoking racks.

We take approx. 20,000 breaths and inhales an average of 15,000 liters of air every day. The air itself is life-giving and necessary for our survival and well-being. Even so, we do not make the same demands on the air quality around us as we do on the food and liquid we consume. And even if we ventilate regularly, fresh air is not the same as clean air. Because although it is good to ventilate, it is also important that we filter the air. Especially in the big cities and buildings where we live and work closely together.

We need to filter indoor air

Outdoor air pollution from companies and cars, for example, penetrates buildings where we spend 90% of the time. The harmful nanoparticles in the air are the cause of several thousand deaths in Denmark annually and can affect and aggravate chronic disorders such as allergy and asthma.

The harmful particles enter the body via the airways, and the tiny nanoparticles can pass from the lungs into the bloodstream. Exposure to large amount of these harmful nanoparticles increases the risk of serious health problems.

When filtering the air, the air circulates through a filter that collects and removes the harmful particles down to a particle size of 0.3 μm (one micrometer = one thousandth of a millimeter). When you use an air purifier to filter the air, you reduce the amount of harmful particles and thereby create a healthy indoor climate.

A thoroughly tested method

A healthy indoor climate and clean air have a direct effect on our health and well-being. tudies show that air filtration and recirculation significantly reduce particle concentration. A filter with 50% efficiency removes 50% of the harmful PAH substances (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons), where a filter with 80% efficiency removes 80% of the PAH particles in the air. The higher the filtration efficiency, the greater the amount of harmful PAH particles removed from the air, and the better the quality of the air around us.
