What Do Indoor Air Quality Products Do?
Indoor Air Quality products maximize your home's safety and comfort. They shield
your family from harmful pollutants that can infest your indoor air quality. At
the same time, they regulate your home's temperature to best suit your budgetary
and lifestyle needs. In doing both, indoor air quality products allow you to take
control of your home's climate.
What Indoor Air Quality Products Does the Clean Indoor Air Alliance Recommend?
The Clean Indoor Air Alliance (CIA²) only recommends and certifies whole-house
indoor air quality products. These are devices that are installed by licensed contractors
within your heating and/or cooling system and its ductwork. Whole-house indoor air
quality products transform your home's HVAC system into a whole-house air treatment
Aren't All Indoor Air Quality Products the Same?
No, indoor air quality products are not all the same. Portable indoor air quality
products or "purifiers" are constantly being advertised on television and in well-known
publications. But these products have a limited cleaning radius. They cannot protect
your entire home. The American Lung Association agrees: "Portable units are used
when air cleaning is desired in a room. Central filtration systems are used when
whole-house air cleaning is needed."
Plus, many portable indoor air quality products or "purifiers" do not provide the
level of protection they promise. For example, Consumer Reports magazine tested
several portable units and found they only moved a small amount of air in the room
they were located. A few units even produced levels of harmful chemicals deemed
"not acceptable ..."
And Good Housekeeping analyzed a well-known portable air cleaner and was shocked
by their findings: "Bottom line... save your money. You can't rely on this product
to clean the air in your home. Any retail room air cleaner has limited efficiency
and effectiveness as they are only designed to clean one room at a time."
