Simple Indoor Air Quality Solutions for a Complex World
It is projected that by 2050, 68% of the world population will live in urban areas, up from 55% today. As urban populations grow, air pollution increases in turn. Aging infrastructure and building HVAC systems in these cities are not keeping up with the increased demands of limiting their occupant’s exposure to poor indoor air quality.
IAQ is More Important Now than Ever. As HVAC systems continue to age how do you increase indoor air quality protection for polluted indoor air conditions? A simple and effective approach is to upgrade your air filters to high-efficiency products. MERV 13 – MERV 16 filters will capture smaller airborne particles that can lead to human health hazards.
- MERV 13 is a minimum recommended filter to meaningfully remove 0.3-1.0 micron particles.
- MERV 15 is strongly recommended MERV to promote IAQ y due to particulate performance and market ubiquity.
Indoor Air Quality focused, but Keeping TCO in Mind
The WHO has labeled air pollution as one of the world’s biggest killers, linking it to 1 to 10 death every year. While it is of great importance to look at the Total Cost of Ownership, from an energy labor and materials standpoint, human health cannot be overlooked. Studies have linked poor Indoor Air Quality to absenteeism and reduced cognitive function.
Aerostar® filters are designed with low initial pressure drop to minimize energy consumption without sacrificing dust holding capacity. Our high-efficiency MER 13-16 air filters can be introduced into any current commercial or industrial HVAC system to remove potentially harmful particles.
Learn about our Aerostar® MERV 13 through MERV 16 air filter solutions that remove more 0.1 – 0.3 micron particles from the air.
