Sacramento, CA / June 13, 2019 / Air Filtration News / -- For weeks last year, the so-called Camp Fire in Butte County, California, the state’s most destructive and deadliest wildfire in recorded history, blanketed large parts of the Pacific Northwest in a smoky haze. Only this time the haze caused wildfire air pollution levels to reach dangerously high levels, triggering fits of coughing, wheezing, and teary eyes among other symptoms associated with poor indoor air quality (IAQ). In fact, on November 16, 2018, California briefly had the worst air pollution in the world. Unsurprisingly, many in Northern California and surrounding areas had no choice but to seek refuge indoors under the protection of high efficiency air filters.
Improving IAQ with High Efficiency Air Filtration Systems
Unfortunately, this scenario is becoming more and more common around the world. Air pollution from natural causes like wildfires and man-made activities such as transport, industry, and power generation is quickly growing into what the World Health Organization (WHO) calls a public health crisis. Research by the organization reveals that nine out of 10 people are exposed to polluted air and that seven million premature deaths can be directly attributed to air pollution.
How High Efficiency Air Filtration Systems Save Money
If anything, it’s safe to assume that installing air filtration systems in your home could be the difference between being healthy and suffering from asthma, allergy attacks, and bronchitis among other ailments. And while scientists now know that dirty air shaves years off the average person’s lifespan, what is also becoming clear is the financial benefits of cleaning up the air we breathe every day. If current levels of air pollution remain unaddressed, it’s estimated that the global population would lose a staggering 12.8 billion years of life or around 1.8 years per person.
