Poor Air Quality Proven to Impact Cognition

It’s fair to say that air pollution is one of the world’s largest health and environmental problems, but the conversation is usually about outdoor air quality, and you rarely hear about measuring the quality of indoor air. There can be many significant indoor air pollution sources that you may not have considered. According to the EPA, common indoor air pollution sources in office buildings include: furnishings, occupant activities, housekeeping practices, pesticide applications, and microbial contamination. Furthermore, a study from the Queensland University of Technology found that certain laser printers emit high concentrations of tiny particles into the air and could expose people to dangerous levels of ultrafine particles emitted by printers, especially if the area is poorly ventilated. Poor air quality can impact your productivity as well as your health. According to research led by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, “the air quality within an office can have significant impacts on employees’ cognitive function, including response times and ability to focus, and it may also affect their productivity.” That’s why IDEAL Health’s multi-layer, HEPA air purifier filter design, motor and fan combination, and sensor technology are designed to deliver extremely high airflow exchange rates and maximum cleaning performance, while at the same time maintaining whisper-quiet operation.  The IDEAL AS10 indoor air sensor measures the air quality, indoor climate (including temperature and humidity, and pressure), and other possible environmental factors – all in real-time so you can have peace of mind knowing that your indoor air is healthy and safe.
